Capitalism ideas formed by Scottish economist Adam Smith. The Russian Revolution  The Russian Revolution took place in 1917, during the final phase of World War I. It removed Russia from the war and brought about the transformation of the Russian Empire into the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), replacing Russia’s traditional monarchy with the world’s first Communist state. The revolution happened in two separate stages, one in February and one in October. The new government, led by Vladimir Lenin, would solidify its power only after three years of civil war, which ended in 1920. February Revolution
1917 The February Revolution,which removed Tsar Nicholas II from power, developed increasingly violent riots on the streets of Petrograd (present-day St. Petersburg)during a time when the tsar was away from the capital visiting troops on the World War I front.The February Revolution did not express the wishes of the majority of the Russian population, as the event was primarily limited to the city of Petrograd. However, most of those who took power after the February Revolution, in the government provisional (the government that temporary took over after the tsar) and in the Petrograd Soviet (an influential local council representing workers and soldiers in Petrograd), generally favored that was at least partially democratic. October Revolution The October Revolution established the Soviet Union. The October Revolution was a much more deliberate event, arranged by a small group of people.It brought about Bolshevik rule and a change in Russia's social structure, while also paving the way for the USSR and Communism. Two revolutions were required in order to change the composition of the country: the first overthrew the Tsar, and the second instituted properly a new government. Near the end of the (October) revolution, the provisional government is arrested early in the morning, Vladimir Lenin issues Decree on Peace and Decree on Land, and Congress approves Soviet of the People’s Commissars, with all-Bolshevik membership, as new provisional government. 1917 Considered a threat to World Peace
