The first problem that Russia caused was that Tsar Alexander I refused to reform and give in to the ideas of the enlightenment/industrial revolution. Therefore, Russia was fer behind the rest of Europe and was truly not the super power that they thought they were due to their lack of new technology. When Alexander II finally decided to go through with the new ideas of western and central Europe, it was already too late for them too catch up to where the rest of Europe had already reached by that time.

When Alexander II was assassinated, his son Alexander III took over. Unfortunately, he had very different ideas from his father that were pretty much the opposite of his dad's. Also, after Alexander II was assassinated, the revolutionaries thought that his death was the beginning of a new uprising of their power and ideas. On the contrary, Alexander III was absolutely against the ideas of the revolutionaries and had the people in charge of his fathers assassination hanged. The remaining people of the radical group that assassinated Alexander II plotted to kill Alexander III, but were found out and hanged. Also, I don't quite understand why Alexander III believed in ideas that would only continue to slow Russia and keep it in the dark.

When Alexander III had forced industrial revolution for over 30 years, the population of Russia was overworked and the poor had only gotten poorer and many people were lost in the process of this drastic change. Also, boiled the ideas of revolution and war in many minds of citizens and revolutionaries. Lastly, when Nicholas II went to war with the major eastern Asian countries for territory in eastern Asia, it was already a big waste of time and resources for what little bit they were fighting for. Nonetheless, they ended up losing the war anyways to Japan in a naval battle in the pacific. This loss only worsened the condition of the Russian economy, even though it was drastically improving from the industrial revolution.
