What changes were brought about by the Bolsheviks immediately after the October Revolution?
- Bolsheviks were totally opposed to private property.
- Most industry and banks were nationalised in November 1917. This meant that the government took over ownership and management.
- Land was declared a social property and peasants were allowed to seize the land of the nobility.
- In cities, they enforced the partition of large houses according to family requirements.
- They banned the use of the old titles of aristocracy.
- The Bolshevik Party was renamed the ‘Russian Communist Party’.
