The "Reds" which is the Russians won the Russian Civil War.
The Russian Civil War was to tear Russia apart for three years - between 1918 and 1921. The civil war occurred because after November 1917, many groups had formed that opposed Lenin's Bolsheviks. These groups included monarchists, militarists, and, for a short time, foreign nations. Collectively, they were known as the Whites while the Bolsheviks were known as the Reds.
The war against the monarchy (tsar or czar) was won by a coalition of Bolsheviks and Menschiviks. A democratic government was formed, however under the leadership of Vladamir Lenin, the Bolsheviks ultimately won out.
