My name is Kendall, and I am a sophomore at Virginia Tech pursuing a degree in Political Science with a focus in National Security, and a minor in Philosophy, Politics, & Economics. In this past academic year, I have become more interested in both the Russian language and the history of the country. For my “20th Century Russia” course, I was instructed to create my own historical blog. With that in mind, this blog is meant to dive into events that took place in Russia during the 20th century and analyze how those events may have affected the nation politically, socially, or economically. I hope you enjoy reading my posts, feel free to comment with any questions or concerns!
