Specific period: 19th and 20th century A brief summary of the history of censorship in Russia in 19th and 20th century. Censorship reforms began in Russia in a single decade of tolerance () during the reign of Tsar Alexander II, when transition was made from legislation on pre-censorship to the punitive system based on legal responsibility.

  The USSR, also known as the Soviet Union, was established in post-revolutionary Russia. The USSR comprised a confederation of Russia, Belorussia, Ukraine, and the Transcaucasian Federation.   Books were strictly censored by the state and Stalin ordered the writing of a new book called “A short history of the USSR” which had to be used in schools. Outside of school, children were expected to join youth organisations such as the Octobrists for 8 to 10 year olds and the Pioneers for the 10 to 16 year olds.
