7th November is a Red Day in the Russian History! Not only this is the day of October Revolution, that bring Bolsheviks into power (the Civil War was ahead), but also the birthday of such prominent figures of the left movement and Russian history as Nestor Mahno and Leon Trotsky. The first as an anarchist and military leader represented the alternative way of the revolutionary development in post-imperial Russia. The latter became a founder of the Red Army, that (like Mahno’s troops) succeeded in fighting with professionally trained White force, and a Marxist theorist.
So tomorrow is time to learn more about this period and its personalities. And today let’s celebrate, comrades!
