Russian Revolution

"Russian Revolution" is the collective term for a pair of revolutions in Russia in 1917, which dismantled the Tsarist autocracy and led to the eventual rise of the Soviet Union. The Russian Empire collapsed with the abdication of Emperor Nicholas II, and the old regime was replaced by a provisional government during the first revolution of February 1917 (March in the Gregorian calendar; the older Julian calendar was in use in Russia at the time). In the second revolution that October, the Provisional Government was removed and replaced with a Bolshevik (Communist) government. ...more

Someday, I promise myself, no one will be able to hear my name or look at my picture and suppose they know all about me. Someday I will do something bigger than what I am. ...more

Nacjonalizm ukraiński był w Rosji, całkiem inaczej niż czeski, polski lub fiński, zwykłym kaprysem, błazenadą paru tuzinów drobnomieszczańskich inteligentów, bez najmniejszych korzeni w stosunkach gospodarczych, politycznych czy duchowych kraju, bez żadnej tradycji historycznej, ponieważ Ukraina nigdy nie wytworzyła narodu ani państwa, bez jakiejkolwiek kultury narodowej prócz reakcyjno-romantycznych wierszy Szewczenki.
