Members of the organization Narodnaya Volya (Peoples Will), Russia, c1870s-c1880s

Members of the organization Narodnaya Volya (People's Will), Russia, c1870s-c1880s. Narodnaya Volya was a Russian left-wing terrorist organisation. Among its members was Aleksandr Ulyanov, the older brother of Lenin. The organisation is best remembered for the assassination of Tsar Alexander II in 1881. Prior to this act the government had been fearful of Narodnaya Volya and had granted a few concessions amongst its demands. The assassination and the realisation that the terrorists enjoyed little broad public suport led to a crackdown however, and by 1883 2000 people had been brought to trial and imprioned or exiled, ending Narodnaya Volya's existence as an effective organisation. Found in the collection of the State Museum of History, Moscow
