    To the newly created independent countries of Ukraine, Poland, Finland, Lithuania, Estonia and Latvia, 60 million people would now live in the counties. However, the soviet government was in no position to fight the Germans, so basically he was willing to give up a lot of his countries resources to save his political power. In giving away half his country, he could stay in power and please the people. Unfortunately, he was not really concerned with the people since, he decided to kill 40 million of them! Therefore, this agreement essentially saved the Bolshevik government, and Lenin could now begin to carry out the ideology of Communism.

    Under Stalin in the late 1920’s , the party engaged in a heavy recruitment campaign of new members from both the working class and rural areas. This was both an attempt to "proletarianize" the party and was an attempt by Stalin to strengthen his base. He would do this by outnumbering the Old Bolsheviks and reducing their influence in the party. By 1933, the party had approximately 3.5 million members, but as a result of the Great Purge party membership, it was cut down to 1.9 million by 1939. In 1952 at the party congress, Stalin asked a good question, even if it was a cocky one. He asked, "There are no more Mensheviks. Why should we call ourselves Bolsheviks? We are not the majority, but the whole party." According to his suggestion, the Bolshevik party was renamed the Communist Party of Soviet Union.

    *major causes to the split  
    In our opinion, we believe that the split of The Russian Social-Democratic Labour Party was a good cause. The split lead to the formatiion of two parties, the Mensheviks, and the Bolsheviks. If it werent for the plit we would have not had the Bolsheviks a party and their success. Lenin believed in "what is to be done," which meant that he believed in taking action rather than planning for a long time. He also believed to get things done other than to wait. this is a good thing becasue their party accomplished things no one believed they would. For example, Lenin knew that not every Russian wanted to have a war, so he made the treat with Germany. This treaty is know as the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk. Also we believed it was a good thing becasue with both Bolsheviks and Mensheviks weakened by splits within their ranks and by Tsarist repression, they were tempted to try to re-unite the party in January of 1910, but by August 1910, the unification attempts had failed: A blessing in disguise.

    Mensheviks:
    WHO? And WHEN?
    The Menshevik Party came into power when the Russian Social-Democratic Labour Party divided into two parties in 1903 at the Second Congress in London, England. The Russian Social-Democratic Labour Party split to be the Bolsheviks and the Mensheviks Party. The Mensheviks party was led by Julius Martov, a boy born in Istanbul in 1873 with middle class, Jewish parents. Members of the Mensheviks were skilled philosophers, Russians influenced by Karl Marx and his ideologies, and the party was also led by moderate socialists.

This party was an organization of professional revolutionaries. They were governed by the principle of democratic centralism (explained in the RSLDP section) who considered themselves as ‘forward looking’ and unconventional revolutionary working class citizens.

    When the Tsar and his son Alexi abdicated the throne on March 2nd, 1917 and his brother obviously refused the crown on following day, Russia became a republic. Therefore, a temporary provisional government was established until elections could take place. Unable to find immediate solutions to the current crisis, the government was soon pushed aside by Lenin and his Bolshevik followers.
    The Bolsheviks were able to take power because of the Romanov’s had failure to:
    · Deal with the economic and social changes, demanded by a newly industrializing state[3]· Reforms- such as progressive labor legislation and safety standards in factories· Clinging to an autocratic mode of government and unwilling to delegate authority to the Duma, every decision made by the Duma was hindered by Tsar Officials.[4]· Inadequate rail transportation was stressed to capacity with the outbreak of the Great War (lack of railway to transport food as well as having to provide the army with food).· End Russia’s involvement in the war- no one wanted the war other then the Mensheviks

    The party was illegal for most of its presence. For example, in March 1898, all nine founding delegates were arrested by the Imperial Russian Police after their first meeting, called the First Congress. In 1903, the Second Congress of the party met in exile in Brussels. This was an attempt to create a united force, and this time, Lenin as a member. However, when Belgian authorities closed in the congress, it was forced to move to August 11th, in London. At the congress, the party split into the Bolsheviks and the Mensheviks.
