Russia Between the Past and the Future. About the Lessons of History

Chernega V.N.


The article makes an attempt to contribute to the ongoing discussion related to the centenary of the October revolution. A particular attention is paid to the lessons of history that need to be drawn from such historical cataclysms. The deep causes of the revolution, rooted in the fairly distant past, are highlighted. The article shows how the problems of social development, not resolved in a timely way, accumulate and create combustible material for revolutionary explosion. The recurrence of historical processes is analyzed in light of the principle «the same causes lead to the same consequences».


October revolution, causes, connection with the distant past, unsolved problems, parallels with the present.
