Revolution and War in Russia Group 5

Overthrowing the Czar and why?
  • Russia's economy was outdated which caused prices to skyrocket and by 1917, famine in large cities.
  • Most Russian's were displeased with Nicholas II's leadership, lack of representation in government, and the czar's lack of concern for his people. This culminated into a massacre called "Bloody Sunday" where unarmed protestor's were shot down by the Czar's troops.
  • Centuries of oppression toward the lower classes from the tsarist regime along with the Czar's failures during WW I created resentment of the Russian government. Living conditions in urban areas for industrial were poor. According to a survey taken into 1904, an average of 16 people were living in each apartment and it was 6 people to a room with no running water. Soldiers on the front lines were suffering from lack of equipment and protection.
  • Soldiers on the front lines were suffering from lack of equipment and protection from the elements. They also had unskilled generals and officers commanding the Russian troops which lead to a large loss in numbers. The famine caused problems on the front lines as well which caused the country to struggle to support both its soldiers and its citizens.
