After the Romanovs a new leader came along, Lenin . He was, as you can probably asume a dictator and had infinite power. There was an unlimited government and it controled all the jobs, cost, credit, and what was being produced or sold.
At the time russia was called the USSR or the Soviet Union which was a union of soviet socialist republics with a command economy that controlled the economy.
After Lenin died Joseph Stalin took over. He ruled over Russia withan iron fist and was a narcissist. He was a totalitarian dictator and invented the Labor camps. People lived in terror and the an estimated 20,000,000 russians died while he was leader.
Since the Soviet Union won the war against germany the soviet union claimed East Germany and the Democratic countries took control of the western side of Germany. The soviets wanted to create a wall to stop interactions from both sides so they built the Berlin Wall. Many people tried to move from one side to another but the wall was heavely guarded and had strong walls.
Eventually the wall was torn down and the the Russian Federation began. People finally had the freedom to do things as they pleased. They made their own constitution, had fair elections, and had free enterprise. This all happened because Gorbachev Resigned toward this.
