Question by : How did the Russian Revolution in 1917 affect the world?
I am making a world history project on the Russian Revolution and I am wondering how did the Russian Revolution affect the world?
Answer by Rabid ManBearPig
It removed Russia from WWI, which put more pressure on the United States to play a bigger role in helping the Allies beat the Germans.
The Revolution brought the ideologies of Lenin and Stalin to the forefront. They were the proverbial “beacon on the hill” of communism, until Stalin’s Socialism in One Country policy. The Revolution also sparked fears of communist revolution in many other countries like France and Germany.
The fact that Russia became a communist nation bothered the West, especially after WWII. What resulted was the Cold War.
