Today I am grateful to the Russian Communist Revolution of 1917. As any revolution, it cost many human lives. However, without it, my grandparents and parents would have never been out of their villages, they would have never got University degrees (for free), and neither would have I (for free). In my case, it was a dying legacy of the Soviet Union – but I still benefitted from it.
