Last month marked the 100th anniversary of the so-called Russian “revolution.” There are few events in history that have been subject to so much misinformation and disinformation. To mention just the most significant:
(1) There was no revolution in Russia in November 1917. There was a coup d’état in St. Petersburg perpetrated by the Bolshevik Party. Its members assaulted the Winter Palace, where the Provisional Government, which succeeded the downfall of the Tsar in March of that year was sitting and proclaimed itself the new government of Russia.
