From here on out we rule Russia (The Soviets)
Russia enters the War in order to keep it's treaty. France and Britain are called due to their Triple Entente. Russia becomes a huge asset with their armies and skills.
Treaty of Brest-Litovsk
So do we have a treaty?
Rasputin was a failed monk with unnatural healing powers. With his uncanny ability to heal he was able to befriend Czar Nicholas II's wife by helping her on multiple occasions. With his friendship he was able to influence the Tsar to fire multiple ministers.
Russian Civil War
In 1917, Russia's government was brought down by the Soviets. The Soviet's leader Vladimir Lenin was able to launch a coup d'etat on Russia with nearly any blood lost. This event resulted in the end of the Triple Entente and took Russia out of the war for good.
The Royal Family is Executed
A year after the end of Triple Entente Russia declares a treaty with Austria, Germany, and the Ottoman Empire. This ended Russia's participation in WW1 but they had a big price to pay by doing so. In result of the treaty, Russia gave up some land, troops, and money.
Yes we shall start the Treat of Brest-Litovsk
After the invasion of the Soviets in Russia a civil war broke out. Not all of Russia was on ride with Marxism so many started to protest which ended up in an all out Civil War between the Reds and the Whites.
The Russian Romanov family were shot to death on July, 1918 by Communist Revolutionaries. They were killed because they symbolized autocracy and the communists were strictly against that so in order to make a statement they were murdered.
