The Russian Revolution is the term used for a series of revolutions in Russia in 1917. These revolutions led to the downfall of the Tsarist autocracy [1]and ultimately led to the creation of the Soviet Union. The Tsar was deposed and replaced by a provisional government in the first revolution of February 1917. In the second revolution, during October, the Provisional Government was removed and replaced with a Communist government.[2]
