Causes of the Russian Revolution The Russian Revolution was one of the most influential revolutions in the history of humanity, since the Russian Revolution caused Russia to become the first communist country in the world.
It changed from being an absolute monarchy under the rule of Tsar Nicholas II to becoming under the rule of the first communist party government in the world.
In my opinion, the most important causes that caused the Russian Revolution were World War One, poverty, and the Russo-Japanese War.
Communism had major effects in the world, because it caused many of the major wars in modern history.
The reign of Alexander II had produced a number of similar reforms.
Changes to local government and the legal system were limited and led to the call for more liberal reform.
A short-term military cause of the 1905 Revolution was the defeat of Russian in the war against Japan in 1904.
It had been hoped that the war would lead to a growth in national pride and support for the Tsarist regime but Russia nderestimated the Japanese forces and the difficulties in organising their own forces.
An estimated 95% of Russia’s population were peasants who lived in poverty.
They had awful and miserable lives, and there were many famines at the time since Russia couldn’t produce enough food for the whole country especially during the war.
