The Russian Revolution (1917)

The Russian Revolution The year is 1914 World War 1 had begun and Russia was at war with Germany. The working class and the peasants make up the Russian Army. However, they are not well equipped or trained for the battles to come. The year is now 1917, millions of Russians had been either killed or wounded. The Russian people were angry at Tsar Nicholas the Second for getting Russia into war and several other reasons including, the Tsar taking personal command of the Army, Rasputin’s power over the royal family, food shortages and growing political opposition. The first revolution came about in February 1917 on the Julian calendar in Petrograd, which was the capital of Imperial Russia. Demonstrators protested about the lack of bread due to rationing and were some joined by striking workers. The Army was called upon to suppress the uprising. Several protesters were shot and killed by the soldiers, however, many refused to open fire. The Army to it seemed at mutiny against the Tsar, the Petrograd Soviet was the city council for workers and soldiers. Now, more and more workers and soldiers elected people to it in order to represent their demands. The Tsar abdicated bringing an end to the Tsarist autocracy and a new government took over. This government was run by two political parties, the Petrograd Soviet and the Provisional Government. The Bolshevik Revolution. The Provisional Government was also unpopular. It made the decision to remain in the war and failed to give land to the peasants. Vladimir Lenin and the Bolsheviks were a faction of the Marxist Russian Social Democratic Labour Party and eventually became the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. He had a simple slogan which would appeal to the people and the Petrograd Soviet, Peace, bread and land. Peace — the end of Russia’s involvement in World War One. Bread — solving food shortages and Land — which would go to the peasants . He also stated all power to the Soviets, meaning that he would seize power in the name of the Soviet. On November 6th and 7th, 1917, or October 24th and 25th on the Julian calendar, the Bolsheviks led by Lenin launched a coup d’etat against the provisional government. They stormed the Winter Palace and arrested the provisional government, putting themselves in charge of Russia’s government. After the Revolution, the Bolshevik government exited the war by signing a peace treaty with Germany called “The Treaty of Brest-Litovsk” . A civil war would erupt in 1918 by those who are against the new Bolshevik government. The White Army and the Bolsheviks themselves, the Red Army. Subscribe to see more history videos.

  1. I think I read somewhere that Karl Marx actually expected Russia to be one of the last countries to go socialist, I might be mistaken

  2. Блять , ну ебана , опять эти стереотипы. Ну сколько можно говорить- Распутин не влиял на царскую семью! Как обычно иностранцы все скомкали и привели к стереотипам

  3. Simple History can you tell me did the white army almost save the royal family, but then the bolsheviks murdered them

  4. The Bolshevik were not Russian in fact they hated everything about Russia, the Bolshevik were Zionist/communist Jews and Freemasons, and their revolution were funded by New York Jewish bankers (Jacob schiff)

  5. It was have been cool to talk more about Rasputin and how he destabilized the government and all his occult practices. Not to mention the whole Our Lady of Fatima thing

  6. If you eant to see actual footage of the Russian Revolution check this video:

  7. Lenin got some inspiration to push the revolution from the 1916 easter rising/revolution here in Ireland, aswell as many Irish-Russians and Irish people taking part in the revolution.

  8. communism in russia was forced on russia by mason jews

    the masonic /jesuit illuminati society
    sent an army of jews to infiltrate Russia and force communism on the Russian orthodox Christian people
    so they can terrorize and destroy Christian Russia
    and when that wasnt enough
    they started world war 2 to primarily target Russia
    why do you think hittler didnt do anything to england or france
    he didnt do crap to illuminati countries
    because he served the masonic satan worshipping illuminati society
    one of hittler inner circle people one time asked him about when they would attack england
    hittler yelled at him
    dont you dare say such a thing
    i have no pleasure in killing our british brothers
    hittler stalin lenin trostky all spent a few years in austria vienna at the same time when they were young men
    they were being groomed and trained by the illuminati to destroy russia
    that piece of crap stalin executed 30,000 russian officers before world war 2 even started
    he prepared the way for germany to invade
    read the writings of lenin that jew
    trotsky that jew
    they hated russian people
    cant you people see this communism was a conspiracy created by the masonic jesuit illuminati society in the west to destroy the russian christian people
    These are the same people working today to start world war 3 with russia
    russia is standing in their way
    they want to establish satans one world order just as the lord jesus warned us in rev 13
    and russia is in their way

  13. Wait, if the Bolshevik Revolution was either fought off or never happened, and if hitler died in combat during WW1 since he was a solider, wouldn't that mean world peace? No WW2, no nukes, and no cold war. I don't know about you but if these simple things didn't come to light or never happened WW1 could've actually been the war to end all wars.

  22. Революцыя это вам не моментальное дело причины копились 37 лет идеи превращались в слова слова в действия действия в революцыю годы первой мировой войны были идеальным моментом для свержения царя расхитителя ресурсов и денег которые он тратил не на страну а на себя во время войны могу сказать на последок что у нас примерно такая же картина в стране как и в то время только войны нет и люди пока мирные но кто знает когда это может резко изменится вдруг найдётся бреш к свободе
