The Russian Revolution was an war between the "White" Army hoping to further capitalism against the "Red" Communists hoping to continue communism. Some peasent groups formed the "Green" and "Blue" armies to defend their foodstocks from both Red and White forces, who would steal them to feed their troops. A few anarchist groups, referred to as the "Black" army, also hoped to gain a foothold in the chaos.

As the Roman Empire had fought the First Russo-Roman War against a government which had fought against the Reds, it supported the Red army, leading to no independance for many Russian regions which were freed in the real world.
