    Yes, yes, a lot of nice buildings but the rot of the Tsarist monarchy permeated Russia. In the worker’s districts revolution was brewing. Nicky’s days were numbered.

      The masses of Russians went from the frying pan into the fire. The Tsars were benevolent compared to what they got with communism.

      And so were the days of millions of Russians who didn’t survive the civil war and the Soviet repression.
