Russian Revolution Project
Transcript of Russian Revolution Project
The impact of WWI at the height of the revolution:
The Russian Government was unprepared for the length of the war or which it was fought.
The Russian government was struggling to maintain war, but was able to mobilize about 14 million men, and was only able to arm 7 million.
The economy suffered greatly from the war. Russia suffered from massive inflation due to mass printing of paper roubals to aid in the cost of war.
What was the revolution of March 1917
What were some problems facing the provisional government
The provisional government faced 4 big problems including war, the land, working committees, and the army. War was a problem because Russia's allies put tons of pressure on the new form of government to promote fighting with Germany. The land was a problem because the government could not ind a way to reform the land in order to make everyone in Russia happy. The peasants were disturbing rural areas, illegally seizing land, livestock's, and machinery. Factory committees were a problem because so much work in factories resulted in a shortage of both fuel and supplies.
What were the July days? and how did Alexander Kerensky respond?
The July days were the days in July of 1917 when industrial workers and and soldiers went against the provisional government. Alexander Kerensky was a member of the socialist Revolutionary Party. He became The Prime minister in July and went against the Kornilovs soldiers. The Bolsheviks took the power from Alexander Kerensky.
What and how did the Bolshevik Seizure of power take place?
In 1917 Lenin led the bolsheviks into gaining 177,000 party members in just 8 months. Between the 24th and the 25th of October 1917 The bolsheviks, with the help of the Petrograd military revolutionary committee, led the Provisional government out of the Winter Palace and "seized" places in Petrograd
How did the return of Lenin affect the Revolution
The Finland Station in Petrograd was supporting the Provisional Government and defense wars. Lenin came to this town on April 3rd 1917. The April Theses were crucial in giving power to Lenins party called the Bolsheviks. The Bolsheviks created 3 propositions; the continuation for war, no support for the provisional government, and the passing of power to the soviets. The Bolsheviks wanted these soviets (people who organized food and went against counter-revolutionary aims by people who supported the Tsar) to stop giving support to the provisional government also.

What type of state did the Bolsheviks establish, 1912-1924
How far did Nicholas II personally cause the downfall of the tsarist government in 1917
The First World War was the most important cause of the Russian Revolution. how true is this claim?
What were some problems facing the provisional government cont.
Factory committees were a problem because so much work in factories resulted in a shortage of both fuels and supplies. The provisional government wanted factory owners to be more discipline in their factories. As a final problem the army was a problem because soldiers began to make little committees in the government and the only thing they wanted to do is restrict power from their officers. The provisional government needed to restore balance in the army.
Despite Nicholas II trying to hold on to power he personally caused the downfall of the tsarist government in 1917.
The bolsheviks wanted to make a workers state where everyone contributes to making what they need. most businesses were ran by the government. The Bolshevik party gave leadership. all of the Bolsheviks long term goals could not happen though because of Russias economic and social weakness.
The panic of buying bread and a strike by metal workers along with women textile operatives in Petrograd started off the revolution of 1917.No single person or revolutionary group mastermined the revolution. it was caused by both long term grievances aganst the tasrst government and short term protests casued from the effects of the war.
The government lost all authorty and the tsar was forced to abdicate.
A provisnal government
With the tsar's abdcation members of the duma agreed to form a provisinal governmet.
The revolution of march 1917 cont...
The duma granted freedom of speech, association, and of religious worship. Free press, political amnesty, the freeing of political prisoner, and the ablition of the death pentalty.
The provisional government found its authorty increasingly challenged by the soviets, but more so by the petrograd soviet. the petrograd soviet was a city council of petrograd. The system of dual power existed, which made restoring order to russia almost impossible. The soviets did not directly challenge the provisional government's right to rule.
Nicholas II led Russia into a world war. This cost alot of money and also Put Russia into economic debt
People protested because of a lack of food and the closing of many factories, Nicholas II sent soldiers after these people but both the people and the soldiers forced him into abdicating which led to the creation of the Provisional Government.
Nicholas II didnt care about the politics in the country so he didnt really understand the situation Russia was in at the time. So the government lacked the support that it needed.
Workers wanted constitutional reforms
And a more democratic Russia

Although there were many causes of the russian revolution, the first world war was the most important.
the tsars mistakes
the influence of rasputin
The war was inspiring nationalism but by 1917 soldiers were leaving the war to join the revolution.
The war created massive inflation by 1916 prices of goods had quadrupled.
The war provied an opportunity for for revolutionary groups to gain more members. They were able to find more dissatisfied peasants and workers who would agree with and join their cause.
