Russian Revolution, 1917. Russian troops firing on demonstrators with machine guns, June 4, 1917, by Karl Karlovich Bulla At least 700 people were killed or wounded....while Lenin went into hiding. This is significant because it shows the political tension of Russia at the beginning of the twentieth century. It shows how the military treated its people and that demonstrators are unhappy with their current state (poverty and limited rights).
