The landowners were also unhappy with the terms of emancipation.
Most were farmers or factory workers who were recruited to fight in the war. Many more people lost their lives from famines and starvation as a result.
As a result of the war, the prices of foods, especially bread, soared. Poverty was another main cause of the Russian Revolution.
Causes of the Russian Revolution The Russian Revolution was one of the most influential revolutions in the history of humanity, since the Russian Revolution caused Russia to become the first communist country in the world.
It changed from being an absolute monarchy under the rule of Tsar Nicholas II to becoming under the rule of the first communist party government in the world.
The Russian army did not provide its troops with guns, because there was a shortage of guns, so only a third of the troops were armed.
Another reason why the Russian army lost so many of its troops was because most of the people involved in fighting in the war were not trained.Arguably, the most significant short-term cause of the 1905 Revolution was Bloody Sunday.On 22 January a crowd of unarmed demonstrators led by a priest called Father Gapon gathered outside the Winter Palace in St. Their demands included shorter working hours and a minimum wage.A further long-term social and economic cause of the 1905 Revolution was the worsening conditions of both peasants and urban workers.Famines had led to shortage of food and distress in the countryside, many farmers left the country side in the winter to go and working in the factories.There were countless numbers of deaths from both the war and starvation. Causes and Consequences of the 1905 Russian Revolution The Revolution of 1905 was the first time the Tsar had faced opposition from so many groups in Russian society at the same time.The reign of Alexander II had produced a number of similar reforms.Changes to local government and the legal system were limited and led to the call for more liberal reform.They believed more, and better quality, land should have been given to them at no cost.Their anger was shown during the peasant disturbances of 1902.
