It wasnt possible to create the total emigrant political center in 19201930s because of the conditions in the environment of the Russian emigration, it was necessary to find an alternative. Only regional and continental political centers of Russian abroad, for example, Western European, Balkan, Far East, North America and other associations could serve as an alternative. As a result, there were created several associations: All-Russian Association of America, Bureau of Russian emigrants in the Manchu-Go, anti-communist Central Committee of the Russian emigration in North China, Bureau of Russian immigrants in Germany, Russian national Front, Russian antikomintern.
