The collapse of the Romanov dynasty was due to the weakness of Tsar Nicholas II personality, hes father Alexander III used repression to control Russia and survived his reign. Under Stalin voted as one of the most successful leaders of Russia was one of the most despotic leaders of Russia. Under Khrusvhev he destalinised the nation and hes cultural thaw attributing to his fall from political power. Brezhnev was a hard liner and was longest in power second to Stalin, with his Brezhnev doctrine. Gorbachev and Yeltsin both liberalised the nation and were outsted. Putin returns to an authoratarian style, even reintroducing Stalins national anthem in ruling Russia and popular.
