It humiliated Germany. The treaty included a war- guilt clause that forced Germany fo admit sole responsibility for starting WWI. Also for three years the Russians had fougnt on the side of the Allies, suffering higher casualties that any other nation. However, because Russia was excleuded from the peace conference, it lost more territory than Germany did. This caused Russia(or Soviet Union) to be determined to gain its territory back. Lastly, the treaty ignored the claims of colonized people for self- determination, like the case of Southeast Asia, where the Vietnamese people were beginning to demand the same political rights enjoyed by people in Western nations :( It humiliated Germany.
