Military Review

1913 year The heyday of the Russian Empire

13
In 1913, the Russian Empire occupied one sixth of the land. Its population was 170 million people. In terms of GDP, the country has already reached the fourth place in the world, and in terms of growth, the Russian economy was the absolute leader. She possessed the world's largest reserves of natural resources, and the royal ruble was secured by 100 percent. The rest of the countries included in the so-called "golden club", the coating was less than half. The cost of rearming the army accounted for almost a third of the budget.


What makes this miraculous transformation happen and to whom? And why did a country that rightly claimed world domination and was at its peak of power disappear from the map of the planet four years later?

    The economy is all in collateral and debt, a split in society. And yes, heyday. Before sunset.

      Ogh, the dawn is right. all imported in industry. Grain exports amounted to such enormous numbers, and the peasants were dying of hunger and were torn from their places.

        And this is again the corrupting influence of the West. After all, the purchase and sale of grain by the banks of the Rothschilds crushed for themselves. Look at the identities of the largest grain merchants and see only Jewish surnames. And when they ordered it, they stopped selling flour in Petrograd. And so this “revolutionary situation” was created. The classic scheme that is used now during all the "color revolutions". This is when the embittered ordinary people simply have no choice but to enter the streets. I assume that this will happen with Turkmenistan in the near future.

      Very sensible program. An attempt to pass without falling in one direction. A country that developed, in which there were problems. which were decided, but everyone wanted everything at once.

    The TV channel "History" is a haven of mediocre liberal rot. Russian content of exceptionally low quality, the feeling that it was shot in the 90 years, you can watch only foreign programs, there are no questions.
    All Russian programs on the channel are saturated with hatred for everything Soviet.

      So look at the programs of foreign production, since you are no fan of the West. And hatred seems to you in this program. I do not like that an attempt was made to reconcile the warring parties in Russia.

    Rotten elite can ruin any country. This applies not only to the encirclement of the Tsar, but also to those who came to power in February 1917. Kerensky released criminals from prisons (they were called "Kerensky chicks"), who defeated the police, destroyed archives and much more.

    Why the hell to this moron Nikolai the Last was to enter the war with Germany. If not for this whim of his, there would be no revolution. Indeed, there were very good relations with Germany, and Russia could well have been neutral in that war.
    But not fate. As a result, millions of dead, physically and mentally mutilated, and as a result, revolution. And let the devils in the other world gut them on the drum, even though the priests declared him holy. , pancake....

    stop lying, all the brains are dusty. Poverty was complete among the citizens, but also. that high society burned their lives abroad, made money by the labor of the people. There were 20% literate and three classes of education were considered literacy. Famines and epidemics claimed millions of people, 40% of children died in the first years of life. Law on cooks children. Lack of social .lifts, the survival of the poor and just existence.

    stop lying about the “Russia we lost”, poverty, hunger, epidemics, lack of social lifts, access to medical care, and education. a high society is burning life and abroad, for money acquired on the neck of the people.

    slavery abolished by Alexander de facto was. The people eke out a miserable existence, 40% of the children died. The so-called elite rotted and lost their morality, Rasputin in the palace was engaged in the appointment of ministers.
