Among the most pressing needs was food. To pressure the defeated Germans more, the Allied wartime naval blockade remained in place to constrict German imports while the treaty was forged. Despite unsettled conditions, some bulk Russian food shipments continued to reach central Europe after the Bolshevik upheaval in Russia in November 1918.
