After the fall of Russia's tsarist autocracy, the rise of the Soviet Union replaced the dismantled society. However, things didn't get that much better, as the Soviet moved towards communism.
The Bolsheviks, a group under Lenin's rule, wanted to overthrow the Provisional Government, and soon became a communist party. This was known as the October Revolution. Later in 1924, Stalin took control after Lenin's death.
Under consistent communist rule, people faced harsh conditions as the Bolsheviks seized control of all factories, banned private trade, and limited food supplies from the peasantry. This caused great turmoil and many strikes and riots took place. Many peasants rebelled by burning their crops, and killing their own animals.
5 Year Plan
People who disobeyed the Bolsheviks or spoke against them were sent to internment camps, where they were forced to work. They mostly prioritized working in factories because they wanted to industrialize faster, but they neglected other duties that caused problems within the society.
Industrialization made the Soviet Union prosperous, however, because they only focused specifically on modernizing the country with industrialization , there became a shortage of consumer goods. Heavy industrialization helped the Soviet Union rise globally, but the shortage of consumer goods caused multiple famines that caused millions of deaths.
Under Stalin's rule, new economic policies were formed. Communism didn't remained strong when Stalin became the new leader. Stalin's 2 economic policies were collectivization and industrialization.
