Hi, I heared a lot about a special topic but I don’t think that my sources are trustworthy, here is the topic : What where the relations between the communists and Raspoutin ? And was Stolipin able to save the Tsar if he wasn’t assasinated in kiev or if the Nikolas granted him more power ?
So far as I know, they never met, and had nothing to do with each other. Rasputin’s existence and fortunes were tied directly to the Tsar. Lenin’s were directly opposite.
I think Lenin might have been nervous to have the Romanovs listening to Raspy. Rasputin was dead-set against Russia going to war with Germany. If Russia had not gone to war and been destabilized as a result, Lenin would have lived out his days at Swiss coffeehouses.
Hope this helps!
Thanks for the answer that seems credible, true that ww1 helped communists a lot, I was asking my self the question after reading this link (Grigory Rasputin - Biography - IMDb), it gives some weird info i never read before…
Rasputin is a really weird character, so I could see how one might believe dang near anything about him. Was he a German agent? A nut job? A guy who slipped some sort of Chinese herbal remedy for epilepsy to young Alexi? (There turn out to be a number of such things that might have been available to Rasputin) – perhaps via “Piotr Badmayev” a Tibetan doctor who might or might not have known Rasputin?
I wouldn’t necessarily rule out anything, but I’ll stick by my earlier answer… probably
Yes I also think the first answer you gave was more logical when we analyse the historical context of ww1, thanks for answering my questions !
Yeah, logical, except for a bit of medical dyslexia - Alexi had hemophilia, not epilepsy! But there is at least one purported herbal remedy for hemophilia (something called Huang-lien-chieh-tu-tang.)
So, I guess I’m logical…l but brain-damaged
No problem bro that happens you are not brain damaged at all !
But anyway Thanks for all the answers bro, I’m learning lot of new stuff in this blog !
Should have said something on Stolipin - his attempted reforms are what got him killed, but in my opinion - maybe. Land given to the “kulaks” meant taking it away from someone else. Those ‘someones’ had a lot of influence in Court. Would Nicolas continue to back Stolipin against his own nobles? The Left (a member of which actually killed him) wasn’t very happy about him hanging every complainer he could find. The War upset everyone’s applecart; would Soltipin (if alive) been pro- or anti- war? It’s an interesting question.
I didn’t knew he was taking lands from nobles to the koulaks ! Thats indeed a vey bad idea since the russian court was reputed to be one of the most powerful in europ…
It’s a very interesant question you just said : would stolipin be for or againts war, I personnally think he would be againts it since he wanted to stabilise the country economy and the position of the tsar before everything else and since russia was reforming really well its army, it didnt needed to get invonved in a war, Stolipin knew of the greater influence of lenin and knew a war was not in favor of the tsar, remebring also the defeat of 1904…
