In the Russian revolution agitprop trains were used frequently for propaganda. These trains were painted in bold modernist designs. These trains went around the country using agitprop to persuade people of the Bolshevik mission. On board were: cinemas, art galleries, and people, who were skilled at debate and discussion!

Some more important uses of propaganda include the posters of El Lissitsky, the works of Mayakovsky - the great poet, play write and artist and the films of Sergei Eisenstein. There was even dinnerware painted with revolutionary designs. The most striking piece of propaganda was Natan Altmans temporary sculpture in Palace Square.
The Russian Revolution was centered around two primary events: the February Revolution and the October Revolution.
February Revolution 0f 1917
This revolution removed Tsar Nicholas II from power. The revolution developed spontaneously out of a series of violent uprisings in the city of Petrogad. Though the revolution was popular uprising it did not necessarily express the wishes of most of the Russian population.
The October Revolution, (the Bolshevik revolution)
This revolution overturned the interim provisional government and formed the soviet union. This revolution was a much more deliberate event orchestrated by the Bolsheviks. After October the Bolsheviks realized they could not continue a election-based system with ought sharing power with other parties. As a result they abandoned the principle of democratic government and presented themselves as part of the dictatorship of the proletariat. This then caused the Russian Civil War t that lasted in to 1920s.
