In conclusion, it took a civil war for Lenin and the Bolsheviks to gain power. Their state was established as a USSR. The revolution
enabled other countries to respect and fear Russia, unlike before. The civil
war gave Russians their freedom, enabling
them to settle down and focus on building their nation
that had been destroyed by poor governance. The current relationship between
Russia and other countries has improved. They have become a powerful country
that provides aid to many second and
third world countries in the world today. They also have one of the most
powerful militaries in the world.
Vladimir Lenin was an important figure in the history of Russia.
He had gone into exile in Siberia for
some years and returned to his country later. His return was a great relief to
the citizens of the country because he was the man behind the revolution. He knew
that Russians were suffering and saw the need of fighting for them. He took
over the governance of Russia when the revolution process became successful. Vladimir
Lenin later became the dictator of the first Marxist state in the world. He was
a powerful man and many countries respected him for that. Among the work he did
while in power included making peace with Germany. His government also worked
hard towards nationalizing industry and
distributing land to its people. Lenin made sure that all Russians were given a
priority in Russia and they enjoyed living in their country. He was viewed as
the greatest revolutionary leader and greatest revolutionary statesman in history.
Vladimir Lenin died in 1924 and many
countries celebrated him for who he was.
The Russian Revolution of 1917 was led by the events of World
Russia had performed poorly in the Great War. The
first World War also brought about a lot
of stress to the Russian society and economy. The economic issues greatly changed the revolution because
there was a big gap between the rich and
the poor in the country, and the poor were the majority type of people in
Russia. Poverty was a long-term issue in Russia before World War I. They were facing poor economic changes such as poor agriculture
and during that time, the royal family and clergy owned land. Farmers worked
with poor soil, little or no fertilizer and wooden plows. As the population
increased between 1890 and 1924, they could not keep up with the agriculture
production. The poor people became even
pooer because of World War I and were tired of being used to fund the
war instead of funding their country. This resulted in
the food shortage in Russia, which this
angered the poor.
The October revolution was the second one and was also referred to as the Bolshevik
Revolution because the Bolshevik party overthrew the Provisional government and
Vladimir Lenin was in power He was the leader of the party and created the
Soviet Union. The Soviet government was made to be ruled
by councils of soldiers, peasants and workers, but was also formed with the Bolsheviks.
later became the dictator of the world’s first communist state. People in
Russia viewed them as an extremist group as they arrested members of the provisional
government in Petrograd, including Water Palace. Bolsheviks had gained
popularity by October 1917 and had the support of people in Petrograd because of Lenin’s promise to the
people of bread, land and peace. Lenin also promised to distribute gentry land
to the peasants, give control of factories to workers, and take Russia out of
The February revolution was the first one that led
to a number of events in Russia,
including overthrowing the imperial government. The Duma government was formed,
and Tsar Nicholas II was removed from power, due to the series of violent
acts and riot, and scarcity of food at Petrograd, a popular town in Russia.
This particular revolution was a popular uprising, but it did not meet the
expectations of many Russians because the event was limited to Petrograd city
only. Majority of those who believed in Tsarist regime had lost faith. This
revolution was disatrous, as Russia was not prepared for World War I and they
did not have troops trained to fight. Following this, Russia’s economy was
distrupted because of government corruption and spending the war. Eventually
Russian’s were tired of Tsarist rule of Russia and forced Nicholas Tsar II to give
up his throne.
This revolution took
place in 1917, and involved the October Revolution as well as the February
Revolution. The two main causes of this revolution was due to the collapse of
the empire under Tsar Nicholas II command and the rise of Marxian socialism
under Lenin and his Bolsheviks. These events also led to Russia’s involvement in
World War I.
