Dismantling of the Tsar Nicholas II statue - Moscow (1918) The dismantling of Tsarist symbols and monuments became a priority of the Bolsheviks upon their accent to power. This was done to remove all traces of the old regime and to strip Russia of its “old values” which were deemed as a barrier to the expansion of communism.
Bloody Sunday was a massacre on Jan. 22 1905 in St. Petersburg, Russia, where unarmed, peaceful demonstrators marching to present a petition to Tsar Nicholas II were gunned down by the Imperial Guard. The events which occurred here have been assessed to be one of the key events which led to the eventual Russian Revolution of 1917.
