Historically speaking, is Russia the first anti-imperialist country, even as an empire itself? It consistently fought against Anglo-French imperialism ever since the Crimean War, if not earlier. It sought to liberate enslaved countries by the Ottomans, who were notoriously backed by the Anglo-French.

With this in mind, I'd argue that the October Revolution was more of an October EVOLUTION. The USSR was just the next stage of the anti-imperialist bulwark known as Russia.

      This is a Russia love thread. I appreciate Russia's history as the world's first and only anti-imperialist country. I'd argue China also joined it, but only recently.

          People support independence movements of other nations just to damage other empires to make it more likely to expand themselves.

          "Ukraine" has only existed as a concept since 1991. I dare you to prove me wrong.

            The entirety of 1917-1920 says otherwise. Moscow was a swamp when Kiev was a thriving metropolis.

      Sanctions have turned Russia into an economic hyperpower. You're delusional. Even pro-Democrat publishers are admitting how dumbass they've been.

      Everything the Soviet Union did for African, Arab and Latin American countries seems genuinely disinterested though. These homies literally cancelled debts and gave civilian and military equipment for free with nothing in return.

    Based on your moronic logic Britain and France were also anti-imperialist because they broke up Austria-Hungary and the Ottoman empire, created Poland etc. I love Russian history but come on.

    If "Liberate subject peoples of rival empires so you have room for expansion:" counts as anti-imperialism, than the Delian League has the Russian Empire beat by over 2,000 years.

    Dugin-level derangement. A kind of russian exceptionalism if you will. Clearly everything outside the original russian heartland is an empire, e.g. east of the Urals, central Asia. It was and still is an empire.
