Vladimir Ilyich Lenin (Russian: Владимир Ильич Ленин), born Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov (Russian: Владимир Ильич Ульянов), was a Russian communist revolutionary and politician, who played a pivotal role in the October Revolution of 1917 which propelled his faction, Bolsheviks, to power in Russia. He led Communist Russia through the subsequent brutal Civil War and in 1922 became the first leader of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. He continued to struggle for the cause of Communism until his death in 1924.
Lenin is considered one of the most influential figures in modern communist history. Lenin's communist ideals - known as Leninism - served as the basis for the Soviet state. In communist nations and especially in the Soviet Union, Lenin is revered as a great communist leader and founder of the USSR.
