Tariffs in the early civil war period

in my collection I have two postal stationery postcards which seem to be totally overfranked.
One is from Kiev to the UK posted December 9, 1917, the other from Dvinsk (nowadays Latvia) to South Africa posted January 2, 1918, both are registered. The tariff from Septemer 1st, 1917 was 8 + 20 Kop. for registered postcards abroad. Here you find 60 Kop. and 55 Kop. on the postcards. Was this simply due to the uncertainty of these times or were there some special tariffs in areas controlled by the whites?
Would be happy about every piece of information.
Thanks in advance,
Thomas Berger

You are right, both are merely overfranked. As far as I know, there were no special tariffs in force at that time either in Kiev or in Dvinsk.
