Olga Volodymyrivna MOROZOVA


This article is dedicated to the analysis of publications on the events surrounding Russian Revolution, which differed from the traditional dogmatic Soviet interpretation. Special attention has been paid to the interconnectedness of the political, social, economic and mental factors during the critical moments of the twentieth century.

The author argues that as soon as the incredibly important ideological role of the Russian Revolution has vanished with the fall of the Soviet Union and a lengthy period of totalitarian dogma in historiography has come to an abrupt end, historians, economists, publicists and journalists have changed their views upon the events of 1917 quite drastically, finally getting the opportunity to publish a great amount of sources, which gave a dramatically different impression of the Revolution.
