Ah, the Russian Revolution. The Russian people get a bit of freedom and democracy after centuries of toil under the czars, only to lose that freedom to another near-century of toil under the Bolsheviks. You will hear about Rasputin, one of the weirdest and creepiest men in Russian history (and that’s saying something), the fall of the czars, and the rise of Lenin and communism.I highly suggest you check out the song “Rasputin” by Boney M. It is basically a 70’s disco song about what a pimp Rasputin was, and it is hilarious.
