In the autumn of 1941, in the south-western part of the Leningrad Region, a Partisan Province was formed around the detachments of the 2nd Leningrad partisan brigade. By the spring of 1942, large partisan formations were concentrated here, and until September 1942, the Partisan Province remained the main base of the partisan movement in the Leningrad Region and an important factor in the anti-fascist Resistance within the occupied territory. The article considers such problems of the organization of the Partisan Province as the establishment of unity of command and discipline, the normalization of relations between the partisan detachments, partisans and local residents. An important factor in strengthening the region was also the food supply of partisans and local residents. In the Partisan Province, a system of managing the life of the local population was created, subordinated to the organizational troikas, which replaced the pre-war party and Soviet authorities of the districts, and some functions of the NKVD authorities were transferred to the organizational troikas. The experience of organizing life on the territory liberated beyond the front line, worked out in the Partisan Province of 1941-1942, was used and supplemented in the creation of new territories and zones in the Leningrad Region at the end of 1943.
