The Russian Uprising (Russian: Русское Восстание; Russkoe Vosstanie) was a conflict centered in the Russian Empire that started in 1918. The war was between the Russian Empire against Polish, Finnish, and other nationalist rebels as well as the communist Bolshevik party. The uprising also involved small peasant revolts, usually outside Moscow.
The uprising lasted for more than a year, and resulted in the independence of Poland and Finland. It resulted in the dissolution of most Communist parties in the Empire, and further damage for the reputation of Tsar Nicholas II. The conflict is noteworthy for being the catalyst for the future Russian Reforms brought on as a result of further protests calling for change in the Empire.
