The two are pretty unrelated. The only connection I can make is after WW 1, the communists in Russia overthrew the government and took control. They used the horrors of the Great War to rally people against the czar. Actually, the tsar (or czar) was toppled in March 1917 by much broader opposition. The attempts by the new government to continue fighting against Germany, when Russia was at the end of its tether, led to the Bolshevik revolution of November 1917. Already in 1918-19 many Western countries, haunted by the 'spectre of Bolshevism' tried unsuccessfully to overthrow the new regime. There was suspicion, fear, hatred and rivalry from the outset.
