Duh. The reason the Bolshevik's succeeded in their revolution was
that Russia had been essentially bankrupted by WW I, after being
nearly bankrupted by the Russo-Japanese War.
Even at the best of times, all those beautiful buildings were owned by
no more than a couple percent of the population, while the rest of
Russia was mired in medieval poverty.
