The article deals with newspapers published in the end of May - the middle of November 1918 in Siberia under the rule of the anti-Bolshevik government. The author studies the circumstances under which the newspapers were published, shows changes in quantity and contents of the local press. It is stated that liquidation of the Soviet power in Siberia led to reestablishment of the freedom of speech and radical changes in the sphere of periodical press.
