Abstract


The article covers the issues of large social groups’ participation in the Russian revolution of 1917. Besides, the class character of the Revolution, the age and national factor are mentioned, as well as the issue of peasantry participation. The author comes to the conclusion that it is wrong to interpret the Russian revolution of 1917 as a purely class conflict. On the basis of the analysis the author draws the following conclusions: 1. at different stages of the revolution large social groups were involved into active revolutionary actions. 2. Despite there is some similarity between the Bolsheviks’ technologies of capturing the power and the “coloured revolutions”, the author notes certain difference between the phenomena, as in 1917 the demand for the changes (including the radical ones) was supported by the majority of the Russian society and that ensured the encouragement necessary for the Bolsheviks’ victory.

Key words


Russian revolution, the revolution of 1917, social base of the revolution
