"Started" Pravda[edit]

Trotsky did not "start" Pravda—he was invited to edit it in 1908. Can someone make this fix? Here's the ref.: http://www.jstor.org/stable/150476?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents Pravda started in 1903. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.2.120.11 (talk) 20:38, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, corrected now. Ceoil (talk) 21:06, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

Rehabilitation[edit]

90.193.111.247 (talk) 21:08, 8 January 2015 (UTC) I thought Trotsky was rehabiliated by the Soviet Union in 2001?

The Soviet Union was dissolved in 1991. AndyTheGrump (talk) 21:17, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

It says here that Trotsky's reputation was officially "rehabilitated" by the Russian government in 2001. Should that not be added to the article? 90.193.118.79 (talk) 04:59, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

When Trotsky was nine, his father sent him to Odessa to be educated[edit]

according to his autobiography 'my life` his father was not very keen on education; on the contrary he even opposed to send him to odessa. so this sentence should be rephrased. --ArazZeynili (talk) 19:01, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

Split with Lenin (1903–1904)[edit]

Because this sentence

  Lenin later denounced Trotsky as a "Judas",[2] a "scoundrel"[3] and a "swine".[4]

references denouncements made in 1911 or later, it seems misplaced in the section for 1903-1904.
