Lenin is criticised for being late on the scene. That is, while the ordinary people were suffering greatly, leading to their desire to revolt, Lenin was in Switzerland. Although he fervently believed in providing for the peasant more than for the privileged, he was himself of the priveleged classes.

He quickly moved into leadership when he arrived back in Russia and was very successful in leading the revolution of October 1917.

However, the clear theme of demands for peace, land and bread for the populous did not have a good outcome. Germany gave Russia peace, but at such a damaging price - excessively severe reparations - that land and bread were not following so the people remained in poverty and hardship.
