  • The Russo-Japanese War
  • Bloody Sunday
  • World War I
  •  The Russo-Japanese War was in 1904-1905 and was a fight over Korea and Manchuria. The Russians and Japanese signed an agreement over the land, but Russia later broke it, and the War broke out. There were many losses and the Japanese had won, and ended with the Treaty of Portsmouth.
  • The Bolshevik Revolution
  • Bloody Sunday took place in front of the Czar's Winter Palace, and consisted of many people of the working class. They came with a petition for better working conditions, and more freedom. Army was then ordered to fire at the crowd, and this led to a wave of strikes and the creation of Russia's first parliament, the Duma parliament.
  • Russian Civil War 
  • The Russians were unprepared for war, and the Czar's wife took over and followed the wisdom of the "Holy" Rasputin. In 1916 a group of nobles murdered Rasputin. On the war front soldiers were disobeying orders, and back at home there was little resources.
  • New Economic Policy
  • Bolsheviks took over the Petrograd Soviet, and Lenin decided to take action. In November 1917, armed factory workers stormed the Winter Palace, and called themselves the Red Guards. The Red Guards took over government offices and arrested government officials. In March 1918, Germany and Russia signed the treaty of Brest-Litovsk, and Russia surrendered large parts of their land to Germany. The enemies of the Red Guards was the White Army who had different political views.
  • The Bolsheviks had to face the White Army, which was made up of different groups. Some supported the czar's rule and others wanted a democratic government, but they united to defeat the Bolsheviks. Leon Trotsky commanded the Bolshevik Red Army. The civil war lasted 3 years and 14 million Russians died from fighting or from the following famine. The Red Army was victorious in the end.
  • Lenin created a smaller form of capitalism, the New Economic Policy. This allowed peasants to sell their crops instead of handing them over to the government. Some small factories and businesses were allowed to be privately owned and foreign investment was encouraged. This policy slowly recovered Russia and production rates were eventually back to normal.
