THIS IS REVOLUTION＞podcast Ep 188: The Russian Revolution and the National Question w/ Dr. Harun Yilmaz and the Saturday Crüe

Far from being a consolidated nation-state, Tsarist Russia was a sprawling multinational empire populated by a diverse set of ethno-religious communities with differing sets of political aspirations.How did the USSR deal with Tsarist Russia’s ethnic diversity? What kind of policies did they adopt to resolve the so-called national question? And how successful were they?
