Answer:

Some of the people in Russia because of poverty wanted to get out of WW1 and help the country grow again because at the time it looked like the Allies were going to lose.

Explanation:

There were many reasons for a revolution in Russia. One reason for the revolution in Russia was because of economic problems, there was a distinct classification between the rich and the poor, who were the main class in Russia. The poor were becoming poorer because of World War One and the funding towards the war instead of the country itself. In addition to not helping the poor, due to the horrible economy there were many food shortages as well which angered the poor and now hungry majority of Russia. These angered citizens started rebelling then along with them the military started rebelling after the tsar telling them to fire into the crowds of their own people

Answer:

Russia entered WWI as a result of Czar Nicholas II's appallingly bad judgement.

Explanation:

The kings of (among other countries) England, Germany and Russia were all first cousins--they were grandsons of Victoria--but royals are different from you and me. Czar Nicholas II saw World War I as an opportunity to improve the Russian economy, and in general saw war as the only way to do so. Russia's defeat in the Russo-Japanese War of a few years earlier would have dissuaded most other monarchs from trying such a strategy again, but Nicholas was undeterred.

Sending the army to fight in World War I gave the Bolsheviks an opportunity to wage their revolution virtually unopposed. They had tried to mount popular revolution once or twice before, but the Czar's army was around to keep them in check--until it suddenly wasn't.
