The February Russian Revolution was started In Petrograd by a number of housewives who had been waiting on line for bread and were fed up with waiting on lines all the time and sometimes getting nothing anyway. More and more people began to join them in the streets protesting shortages of food and other goods. Factory workers and soldiers began joining and it soon got out so of control the entire city was rioting. It also spread to other cities and the revolution was on.

The October Russian Revolution was started by Vladimir Lenin and his Bolshevik followers, but it wasn't really a revolution. It was more like a military coup where a relatively small political faction seized key communications, transportation and military installations and deposed the existing government.

What was the name of the group which started the revolution in russia?

You are probably thinking the answer is the Bolsheviks under Vladimir Lenin and it is true that they started the October Revolution in Russia. But to answer the question as written, no group in particular "started the Russian revolution." The revolution consisted of two separate revolutions, the February Revolution and the October Revolution. The February Revolution is considered the start of the revolution of 1917. The Bolsheviks did not start that one, so it is not accurate to say they started the revolution. They did start the second revolution. While the Bolsheviks did not start the revolution, they certainly finished it.
