Vladimir Illytch Ulianov (Lenin) along with Lev Bronstein (Trotsky) were the prime movers in the Russian revolution in 1917. They went on to establish the USSR, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, the most powerful Communist nation in history. After Lenins death in 1924 Stalin became its leader. Trotsky was murdered in Mexico in 1940.

The political group Lenin was associated with was the Bolshevik Party, a small but radical faction of the Marxist Russian Social Democratic Workers Party. In March 1918, the Bolshevik Party changed its name to the Communist Party.
