Good news is, molotovs are already flying into the windows of military registration and enlistment offices. Bad news is, this is probably where it ends.

Not a bad last line either.......

...as Putin sank to the floor, his body both seemingly heavy yet light, he focused on the strange reality of his hands lying by the door in their own bath of vermillion blood. Much of Russian history begins and ends with explosions.

I once read that all of Russian history can be summed up by the sentence, "And then things got worse."

Much of Russian history begins and ends with explosions.

This is especially true when it comes to the history of the Russian Revolution and the rise of the Soviet Union. The spirit of the people is that of defiance and destruction. The Russian Revolution was no different.

The people of Russia were sick and tired of being ruled by a monarchy that was out of touch with the needs of the people. The tsar was more interested in maintaining his own power than in governing the country. The people were also tired of being forced to fight in a losing war.

The situation came to a head in February of 1917 when the people of Petrograd (now St. Petersburg) took to the streets to protest the conditions in their country. The protests quickly turned into a full-scale revolution.

The tsar was overthrown and a new government, the Provisional Government, was established. The Provisional Government was not able to solve the problems of the country, however, and the people soon became disillusioned with it.

In October of 1917, the Bolsheviks, led by Vladimir Lenin, seized power in a coup. The Bolsheviks were a Marxist party that believed in the overthrow of the capitalist system.

They immediately set about trying to transform Russia into a socialist state. They nationalized industry and began collectivizing agriculture. They also took steps to suppress opposition to their rule.

The Bolsheviks faced a number of challenges, both from within Russia and from outside. The people were not ready for socialism and many opposed the Bolsheviks’ policies.

There was also a civil war going on between the Bolsheviks and their opponents, the White Army. The Bolsheviks eventually emerged victorious from the civil war, but at a great cost.

The Soviet Union was established in 1922. It was a country that was very different from the Russia that had existed before the revolution. It was a country that was ruled by a single party, the Communist Party.

The Communist Party controlled all aspects of life in the Soviet Union. It controlled the economy, the government, and the media. It also controlled the education system and the arts.

The Soviet Union was a country that was in a constant state of change. The government introduced a number of different policies over the years in an attempt to improve the lives of the people.

Some of these policies were successful, while others were not. The Soviet Union was also a country that was constantly at war. It fought in a number of wars, both foreign and civil.

The Soviet Union eventually collapsed in 1991. This was due to a number of factors, including the failure of the Soviet economy, the rise of nationalism, and the continued opposition to the Communist Party.
