November 7 is the 90th anniversary of the Russian revolution, when
Russian communist party took over the power and unilaterally ruled
Russia and Soviet Union for over 70 years. Before the collapse of
Soviet Union in 1991, Russia was the most active and strongest
communist power, supporting the socialist and communist movements in
the countries of Eastern Europe, and all over the world. When Vladimir

Russian revolution will spark the revolutions all over the world,
gradually leading to communist regimes in most countries.

By 1700, new and more developed versions of Utopian communism, represented by ideas of Saint-Simon, Fourier and Robert Owen were formed.
Economic practice in Russia during civil war on the territory, controlled by Bolsheviks, which is characterized by forced redistribution of benefits in economic chaos conditions. Measures such as limitations on free trade and other similar measures, taken by Bolsheviks during war communism, were adopted in one way or the other levels by all the countries, participating in World War I, facing destruction of systems for ensuring vital activities and provisions for troops as a result of unrestricted speculation. “Forced redistribution of benefits” with respect to provision of bread to troops per se has reached surplus appropriation system.
