Communist Russia Redirect[edit]

Should Communist Russia redirect to Soviet Union or Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic? Please respond on Talk:Soviet Union#Communist Russia Redirect. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Emmette Hernandez Coleman (talkcontribs) 00:50, 21 September 2012 (UTC)

Constitution[edit]

The article currently quotes the 1925 Constitution:

According to a quotation will of the peoples of the Russian Socialist Federative Soviet Republic, have decided to Tenth All-Russian Congress of Soviets on the formation of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, the Russian Socialist Federal Soviet republics of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, the transmit powers of the Union, classified in accordance with Article 1 of the Constitution of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, the purview of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

This is pretty garbled English, and I'm fairly confident it came from an automatic translation. It's confusingly worded, and while I think I get the idea of what it's trying to say, I'm really not sure, and my Russian is nonexistent to check. Should we just remove it until we can get an understandable translation? Andrew Gray (talk) 19:04, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

I've changed it, hopefully for the better. Please feel free to add final touches to it (or post here if any part still remains unclear). Cheers,—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); February 21, 2013; 19:19 (UTC)
It looks a lot clearer now - спасибо! :-) Andrew Gray (talk) 22:31, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

Edit request on 22 August 2013[edit]

Start with the following text:

The Soviet regime first came to power on 7 November 1917—immediately after the Russian Provisional Government, which governed the Russian Republic, was overthrown in the October Revolution—although the state it governed—which did not have an official name— would be unrecognized by neighboring countries for another five months. On 25 January 1918—at the third meeting of the All-Russian Congress of Soviets—the unrecognized state was renamed the Soviet Russian Republic.

Please get rid of the dashes; there are so many of them that I'm having trouble piecing together the sentence structure. I'm imagining something such as the following:

The Soviet regime first came to power on 7 November 1917, immediately after the Russian Provisional Government, which governed the Russian Republic, was overthrown in the October Revolution. The state it governed, which did not have an official name, would be unrecognized by neighboring countries for another five months. On 25 January 1918, at the third meeting of the All-Russian Congress of Soviets, the unrecognized state was renamed the Soviet Russian Republic.

How's this?
