The Kirghiz Autonomous Socialist Soviet Republic was an autonomous republic of the Soviet Union within the Russian Socialist Federative Soviet Republic existing from 1920 until 1925 on the traditionally Kazakh territories, when it took the name of Kazak Autonomous Socialist Soviet Republic. Russian governors of the Central Asia were prone to confuse Kazakh and Kirghiz ethnicities, which led to misnaming of the region. In fact the Kirghiz lands and Kazakh ones bordering them at that time were part of Turkestan ASSR
