Russia had continued imperial expansion which cvaused internal unrest. Serbia and Bulgaria (both new Slavic nations at the time) were formed. Conservatives questioned Russian government and attempted a pan-Slavic movement which would allow for the slavic people to unite.
I can't keep going like this *sighs*
Meanwhile, in CHina, Russians had moved over to China and gained territory in it. Russia was caught by the Japanese which were also trying to expand and was defeated in the Russo-Japanese War in 1904-1905
Although peasant unrest was relieved and the Kulaks agricultural production increased, the plan quickly went south
This is unacceptable for them to think we can live like this
The defeat caused for people to protest, urban workers and peasants banded with liberal groups.
The government created a national parliament after caving in called the Duma. Minister Stolypn introduced important peasant reforms which helped in redemption payments, liberal purchase and purchase/sale of land.
Do you not think we should do something about this, we need to help the situation.
Conditions still aren't like before, fix this now!!! We are unhappy!!
Police repression had resumed since the Duma wasn't able to help anyone, so the Russians turned again to he Ottoman Empire and the Balkans, leading to WWI
The measures we are currently taking aren't enough, we are going to have to take extreme measures to attempt to bring order in this country
