Who were the white Russians in the Russian revolution?
The White Russians followed the Czar, Nicholas II. This was comprised of Loyalists and cossacks. The Red Russians, were part of the Red Army lead by the communist Bolsheviks, and Vladimir Lenin.
In point of fact, there were no "White Russians" in the "Russian Revolution." The White Russian forces were part of the Russian Civil War, not the revolution. The White Russians were not all followers of Tsar Nicholas II. Many did not want him back in power. The White Russians were mainly anti-Soviet and anti-Bolshevik forces. Some wanted to impose a military dictatorship over Russia, some wanted a constitutional democracy and some wanted simply to be left alone to live without interference by the Moscow government. This dichotomy of goals is partly to blame for the failure of the White Russians in the civil war.
@EPLibraian: While yes it may be true some were not particularly Pro-czar they did fight on the same side of the Czar against the Red Army. In fact, the term "white" comes from a reference of absolute monarchy used with Ivan III, the first czar of Russia, not a military dictatorship. The White Russians also comprised of the members I stated (Loyalists and Cossacks). Famous members of this army include the Russian naval commander Alexander Kolchak and military intelligence officer Lavr Kornilov, as well as fictional characters General Zaroff, and his manservant Ivan from the short story The Most Dangerous Game, which denotes Nicholas as the "Great White Czar." Either way the confederation was extremely loose due to their divided goals, as you stated. and i am sorry for not particularly clarifying my answer
They were the army of the Czar. (The King).
Loyalists and Patriots Bolsheviks & Mensheviks: Red Russians & White Russians. Following the revolution the Royal family were overthrown & there was a Civil War.
by the russians
White Russians favored the Monarchy, the Czarist government- Dimitri was white Russian in more ways than one!- The Reds were the Communists. By the way the term White Russia was used way-way prior to the Bolshevik revolt, and meant essentially Imperial Russia.
5-10 million Russians died in (or shortly before) the Russian Revolution of 1917 Source Wikipedia more like 40-50million during the revolution and stalins rule
Given that during the Revolutions Russians were fighting Russians, you could say that Russians won. You could also say that Russians lost.
White Russians were an opponent of the Bolsheviks, and a supporter of the Czar, during the Russian Revolution.
lots of russians lived there
The Communists were overthrowing the Tzars.
actually Russians fighted with Russians, the people who liked the king and wanted to keep him VS the people who disliked the king and wanted to Form the USSR
the russians killed all the amercians and pissed on them
They hated his guts. That's why the revolution happened in the first place.
If you are referring to the white Russians in the Russian civil war, the white Russians were the non-communist party in the war. They were supported by the allies of World War One, but they did not receive adequate backing, and lost the civil war.
The animals represent Russians during the Russian Revolution.
Yes, because Russians were having war fatigue
The Emperor of the Russians during WW1, he and his family were executed by the Bolsheviks during the Russian Revolution.
No it was very hard for there russian People to Live Deleksan Ratna Southborugh High School
The Russian Civil War followed upon World War 1 to, between them, account for the deaths of 14 million Russians in the years 1914-1917(WW1) and 1917-1921 (Russian Revolution). Of the 2 the revolution accounted for the majority of deaths: 9 million.
Trotsky became Commissar of War after the revolution and commanded the Red Army forces in the Russian Civil War against the Russian White forces.
white and red
The Bolsheviks, or Reds and their Red Army opposed the so-called White Russians and their White Army.
It began because the Russians were already unsatisfied with the Czar. The losses in WWI only helped to put the revolution in motion.
The Russian people revolted in 1917 because of the harsh living conditions place on them by the monarch. The Bolshevik Revolution was very successful.
What event forced the Russians to negotiate A Separate Peace treaty with Germany prior to the end of World War 1?
The Russian Revolution of 1917 .
Due to russia's involvement in World War 1, Russians' basic needs were not being met.
If you mean Lenin's Civil Wars, he was the head of the Bolshevik Party who, with the help of his army commander Trotsky, was trying to drive out the Czarist White Russians after the Russian Revolution. (New respondent) I think he meant 'Lebanon'.
At the time of the Russian Revolutions of 1905 and March and November 1917 the majority of Russians were peasants. The number of industrial workers was very small by comparison.
with the Russian revolution in 1917, the people were again dominated by a new form of control called communism
Before the Communist revolution of 1917, the Russian army were fighting the Germans and the Austro-Hungarian army in WW1.
Which one? 1905 or 1917? Czar was nuts, feudalism/capitalism suck, and the russians were getting their asses handed to them in WW1.
The Russian people (Russian: русские, russkiye) are an East Slavic ethnic group native to Russia, speaking the Russian language and primarily living in Russia and neighboring countries.

The termWhite Russian has two totally unrelated meanings. Politically the White Russians were any Russians who weren't Red, i.e. who were opposed to the Bolshevik government. In Russian they were referred to as belye (the whites), as opposed to krasnye (the reds). The other meaning is a citizen of the country called Belarus, translated as White Russia. It's between Russia and Poland, its capital is Minsk, and it has its own language - though it's… Read More
they opposed i think it was Stalin or lenin. either way they opposed a Russian leader and hated communism.
Burring this time they had a revolution going on they no longer wanted to be controlled by their Leander, so they revolted and this is when Bolshevik came in and tolled them they could have a new kind of government which we call Communism.
Russian Revolution can refer to the following events in the history of Russia: The Russian Revolution of 1905, which was a series of riots and anti-government violence against Tsar Nicholas II. The Russian Revolution of 1917, which included the February Revolution resulting in the abdication of Nicholas II of Russia and the October Revolution, which was the Bolshevik revolt. The Third Russian Revolution, which was the failed anarchist revolution against the Bolsheviks that started in… Read More
It wasn't Russia as a whole. It was the leader of the country. Vladmir Ilyich Lenin in 1918 made Russia Communist after the Russian Civil War, in which the Red Russians defeated the white Russians.
how remarkable was the Russian revolution ? how remarkable was the Russian revolution ?
Many Russians are Russian Orthodox (Eastern Orthodox).
it's about 125.000 Russians was killed during the Russian civil war
The Russian flag doesn't have any specific representations. Some Russians believe that the colour white stands for generosity, blue for loyalty, and red for courage. Others believe that white stands for Belo Russian people, blue for Ukrainians, and red for Russians. Other say that white represent God that is of the most importance, the red represent peasants at the bottom, and the blue represents the tsar which is between the two.
They were against the government and the Bolsheviks. So the were supporting the revolution.
Santa. Loljk, it was Julius Martov, who was, like Lenin a former member of the Russian Social Democratic Labout party, and also like Lenin, was a Marxist.
White Russians under Baron Wrangel lost at Sevastopol to the Red Army on the 14th of November 1920.
Immediately after the revolution, Trotsky became the first Commissar of Foreign Affairs. Then at the outset of the Russian Civil War he became Commissar of War. He organized the Red Army in order to fight the opposing White Russian forces.
well it was a revolution, which suggests internal struggle. so the only country fighting in the Russian revolution was russia. there were the white army which was in favor of the czar and the reds which wanted communism....the reds won and the czar and his entire family were killed.
In November, the Russian calendar then was 13 days behind ours. In 1917, Russia had not moved to the Gregorian Calendar adopted elsewhere in the late 16ty Century. Russia moved to the Gregorian Calendar shortly after the October Revolution.
During the Russian revolution the Reds referred to the Communist revolutionaries, White referred to the defending Tzarist or established government. The Greens had little influence on the conflict but they were armed peasant groups which fought against both the Reds and Whites.
They speak Russian.
Vladimir Lenin led the Bolsheviks in the October Revolution of the Russian Revolution.
