100 years since October Revolution interactive

Vladimir Ilyich Lenin -- one of the world’s foremost proponents of revolution -- set out to replace Russia’s feudal social order with a “dictatorship of the proletariat.”
Lenin ruthlessly cracked down on dissent using the Red Terror, carried out by the Cheka secret police, and his propaganda of lies for strategic advantage.
A century later President Vladimir Putin has expanded Russia’s territorial boundaries with the annexation of Crimea, and has allegedly manipulated European and American elections by using cyber warfare to spread propaganda.
