As more member joined Cheka it began to gain an immense amount of power, until it was abolished in 1922 by the Bolsheviks (“Red Terror”). 11. The Provisional Government: The Provisional Government was the system appointed to rule Russia after the citizens had lost faith in their leader, Czar Nicholas ll.

Both Catherine the Great and Peter the Great sought to enhance and further Russia’s international position. This I believe is most consistent with classical realism as they both sought to place their country in a more powerful position, through the expansion of both their state abroad and within their nation-state. These readers without a doubt westernized Russia, but were limited by the constraints of the Russian culture and power structure. The first issue I would tackles is the attempt of Peter the Great to establish Russia as a formidable regional power by taking the traditional metrics of power such as a more centralized government and modernizing the Russian military. In addition, to these reforms he sought to westernize Russia in other ways, whether it was the dress of those in the Russian courts, the establishing of Western style education and creating a state that effectively raised revenue.

Peters reign on the throne lasted till 1725 and his empress Catherine continued until 1727. One of the second emperors named Peter II and only ruled the throne until his death of smallpox. Peter, I wanted Russia to refer to him as emperor since he thought that it would modernize their regime and gain more power over the church.
Russia’s historical experience was eccentric but yet not completely divorced from European influence. In fact, in the 18th century European contemporary ideas were deliberately brought to Russia with a view to modernize its alleged medieval existence. Many contemporaries claim the ruler of that period, Peter I, the Great, to have transformed Russia “from non-existence into being” (Hughes 2009, 165). Or also as the English author Harold Nicolson wrote: “It was Peter the Great who, within a quarter of a century, transformed Russia from a barbaric Asiatic principality into a centralized monarchy, capable of playing its part in the European balance of power.” (Nicolson 2009, 81). Later in the eighteenth century, under Catherine II, Peter’s companion in imitating Europe by giving Russia as she puts it “a more European appearance”, some reforms, such as the “Instruction” or “Nakaz” was put forward.

Important figures such as Alexander Hamilton himself, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, James Madison and many others worked towards forming and instituting a new and more sustainable system of government. Ultimately the Constitution was created-- which divided the United States government into three equal branches that worked in an equal system of checks and balances. Considering the failure of the A.O.C it was in part the foundation the Constitution-- it gave the Founding Fathers a clear guideline for what not to do.

Also, Montesquieu’s idea of the separation of powers helped shape the government. It was put into place to keep one branch from becoming overpowered. Without these key concepts, our government would supposedly become or stay as an absolute monarch. In conclusion, The Enlightenment greatly impacted the American Government and Revolution because the ideas and concepts that were gained from the time period supported the new beginning of our nation’s prodigious

The fist decreased the number of warheads to 10,000 and in the next year 3,000. Finally, after these two treaties the Cold War officially ends.
Throughout Russia’s involvement in the first World War, seeing their flags in battle wasn’t uncommon. However, there was one flag guaranteed to fly when Naval force was required, a flag that had been in use nearly two centuries before: The Russian Navy Ensign. Since its instatement in 1712, the Russian Navy Ensign has ducked in and out of use for various reasons, but until 1917 it was a flag flown amongst the Allies as they fought against the Axis powers. The flag was designed in 1712 by Peter I The Great as a tribute to his father, Alexis “Alexey” Mikhaylovich Romanov because he established a flag for the first Russian naval vessel, the three-masted warship Oryol. The flag’s design is a blue saltire, Saint Andrew’s Cross, on a white field.
Peter the Great did a lot to help Russia become a great power. It took him his whole 40 years to do this for Russia. The main goal for Peter in order to make Russia a great power was to westernize it. He thought if you modernize the country then the country would be strong. Peter wanted to have a capital near the water so the navy would be strong and it would be easier for trade.
When you think of America you often think of independence and individual freedom, but what made early American want this freedom? The British restriction of trade and control of state governments merely angered Americans, but with proposals like Thomas Paine’s Common Sense it stirred our spirit into more than rebellious one. These things lead to American Revolution, and this revolution lead to the Treaty of Paris, the U.S Constitution, and the Bill of Rights.
