The Russian Revolution is a governmental overthrow of a ruling that took place in the early twentieth century. Prior to the revolution, Russia was ruled by Czar Nicholas II who was a part of the last reigning Russian monarch, the Tsar. The Tsar had complete power in Russia as he owned much of the land, commanded the army, and controlled the church. During the reign of the Tsar, the Russian citizens were treated badly and unfair.

In the allegory “Animal Farm” written by George Orwell and published on 17th August 1945, there are a number of animals who take over a farm from a drunk, irresponsible man named Mr Jones. These animals are all specifically made to represent different people and their characteristics who played a role during the revolution in Russia, for example, how Joseph Stalin and Leon Trotsky are represented as two pigs named Napoleon and Snowball. There is also a stubborn donkey named Benjamin who doesn 't want to be a part of the rebellion, he represents the people who refused to get involved in politics. These animals show the truth of what the revolutions were like and how people behaved.

As the animals under Jones lead lives of hunger and want, the lives of millions of Russians worsened during Nicholas ' reign. When Russia entered World War I and subsequently lost more men than any country in any previous war, the outraged and desperate people began a series of strikes and mutinies that signaled the end of Tsarist control. When his own generals withdrew their support of him, Nicholas abdicated his throne in the hopes of avoiding an all-out civil war — but the civil war arrived in the form of the Bolshevik Revolution, when Nicholas, like Jones, was removed from his place of rule and then died shortly thereafter.

Imagine being on a farm where animals take over. All humans have fled from the farm, while the animals have a rebellion against them. They use the phrase, “Four legs good, two legs bad” and whoever had grasped this phrase would be safe from human influences. This was the life the animals lived on Animal Farm while Napoleon takes over as their leader. Napoleon is a sneaky, cruel pig who always gets his way and that is how it has always been and always will be.
This resembles to Stalin’s purge which took place in 1936-1938, when he exiled people who were against his ruling. Tsar Nicholas II, the last Russian ruler represents Farmer Jones. During his monarchy, Russian citizens experienced poverty and bloody massacres. As the animals under Mr. Jones control, they were starved and exhausted from labor. The leader of Bolshevik who gained control over the revolution, is Old major, which is the animal figure of V.I. Lenin.
When the men come in with whips, the animals fight back, and manage to chase all the humans away and bar the gate behind them. The newly liberated animals rename the farm Animal Farm, and paint the Seven Commandments of Animalism on the barn wall. Assuming leadership roles, the pigs Napoleon and Snowball argue and disagree on almost everything, while Squealer is used as their mouthpiece, justifying policies that provide special treatment for the
When Old Major dies, the rebellion is put in place. Here, you introduced to Snowball and Napoleon the two pigs that are most frequent throughout the book.

When Russia entered WWI it became clear to everyone just how poorly he ruled his country. Many were sent to battle totally unarmed and on the eastern front, where Russia fought Germany, more than 2 million soldiers lost their lives in only one year. In the cities the people were starving and many people died there as well. The constant losses in the war mixed with the starvation and misery in the cities caused the people of Russia to revolt against tsar Nicholaj II.
This fuels discontent. Two factions of socialists seem to be the most popular parties among the Russian people, the Socialist Revolutionary Party and the Bolsheviks, but neither have much power in the Provisional government.

One man, Vladimir Lenin saw that Russia was spiraling downwards, having lost two battles in a row and having the highest death count out of all the European countries he saw that a change was needed. Lenin was the leader of the Bolsheviks who were a communist group that wanted to draw out of the war and over thrown Czar Nicholas II. Preaching peace, and food he wanted, ¨the offer of peace, the salvation of Petrograd, salvation from famine, and the transfer of land to the peasants who depended on them,¨ (Document 8).

The genocide that Stalin inflicted on the Ukrainians began in 1929 with massive deportations of the most successful farmers of Ukraine. All farmers were forced to give up their land to the government. These farms would then be state owned and factory ran. If farmers and families would refuse to leave their homes, they would be drug out of their houses and forced onto freight trains that would then take them to remote areas. To add on, the Soviet Union sharply increased Ukraine 's’ production quotas, to make it near impossible to fill, which eventually led to the widespread starvation all across Ukraine.
Joseph Stalin took the lives of over 20 million people in the Soviet Union during his rule. Stalin took over after the Russian Revolution and quickly gained absolute power and became corrupted and worse than the old ruler, Tsar Nicholas.

Orwell depicts the Russian Revolution in a bad light, portraying Stalin as an overweight, greedy boar. Mr. Jones (the Tsar) is the owner of the farm that all but one of the animals abhor.
