Russia was isolated from these developments and was therefore economically and intellectually backward in comparison with Western Europe. There were many factors that contributed to the downfall of the Romanov Dynasty. Some were short term, some long term. Nicholas’ unsuitability to be an autocrat, Russia’s enormous land area, Alexandra’s incompetency as the Tsarina, Rasputin’s influence over the Romanovs, revolutionary acts against the Tsar, Bloody Sunday, the 1905 revolution, hardships of war (Russo-Japanese war and the first world war) were some main factors that contributed to the collapse of Tsardom. Tsar Nicholas II inherited the throne after his father’s death on 20 October 1894.

However, after 1924, the USSR was a clear dictatorship, which meant that the culture was controlled by the élite and is used to portray the elite positively. There is no denying that culture performed a political role in the USSR in this time period, as culture is heavily effected by politics and vice versa, and so in this essay, I will be evaluating the extent to which Soviet culture performed a political role in the USSR in the years 1924-1953. Art performed a highly political role in the USSR in the years 1924-1953. In the early years of the Bolshevik state, experimental and abstract art was allowed under Lenin. This all changed however with the change in leadership after 1929 and the emergence of Stalin as the ‘vozhd’.
The years 1881 to 1914 were a time of great turbulence in Tsarist Russia. The 1905 revolution almost toppled the Tsarist regime. Political assassinations were common and military defeat became somewhat the norm. In the late 19th century, Russia was one of Europe’s Great Powers. This status had depended on military power but by the 1890s military power was becoming increasingly linked to economic power.
The imperial government clearly did not foresee industrialization as an eventual catalyst to their demise. They saw it as the opportunity for Russia to become one of, if not the most, powerful country in the world. The height of industrialization in Russia occurred at the end of the 19th century. The man that the autocracy appointed Minister of Finance during this period was Segei Witte. He was appointed the position in 1892, and held it until 1903.

Nicholas II fell from power in February 1917, there are many reasons for the collapse of Tsarism but to what extent was World War 1 the most important reason? World War 1 seems to be the most contributing factor to why Tsarism collapsed in 1917; the huge effects and problems that the War had on Tsarism was able to overturn the monarchy, that before then, had never died. This is due to the impact of War on Russia’s Political state. In 1915 Nicholas II as Tsar toke power of the Russian army, this had a huge effect on the outcome of World War 1 on Russia. Despite this, the collapse of Tsarism could be blamed on different factors of Russia, such as the civilians; the percentage of peasantry in Russia was extremely high, not only the percentage but also the conditions of peasants was awful.
How far did the priorities of the three Five-Year Plans change in the year 1929-41? By Seb Monson The Industrialisation of Soviet Russia took form in the way of 3 Five Year Plans (FYP) which aimed for heavy industry throughout Russia to help aid the country in catching up with the ‘advanced countries’ and preparing Russia for war otherwise they would ‘perish’ as said by Lenin on the eve of the October revolution. Great Britian was in fact influential on Stalin as it was seen as a powerful Capitalist state after its Industrial Revolution a century earlier.

Stalin recognised that the industrial revolutions which, had made Western Europe and Northern America so strong, had been based on iron and steel production.
