The Best of 100 Years Today, Post-Revolution Russia in Your Photos

On Nov. 7, 2017, Russia marked the centenary of the 1917 October Revolution. Far from the days of Bolshevik uprising and Lenin’s formation of a new Soviet government, today's Russia presents a strikingly different picture, with a changing story still being written and told by the residents of this country. 

To capture a glimpse of everyday life in Russia, we asked our readers to show us your day on Nov. 7 — a century after the revolution. Here's a selection of your stories so far.

We need your help now more than ever.

Independent media outlets and journalists in Russia are being increasingly targeted with “foreign agent” and “undesirable” labels, threatening the existence of the free press day by day.
