Why was the Russo Japanese war significant to the Russian revolution?
The Japanese won.
Japan emerged as a major world power. Russia, already suffering from uprisings against the government, transitioned from an absolute monarchy to a constitutional …monarchy with the formation of a permanent parliament known as the Duma in 1905.
Though Russian soldiers and sailors went confidently to war,, the Japanese defeated them. News of repeated losses sparked unrest at home and led to revolt in the midst f the w…ar.
Japan won the majority of battles on land and sea, but the Japanese had 47,152 lives lost while the Russians only lost 25,331 lives lost. No one really won the war, Theodore R…oosevelt ofered to mediate and earned a nobel peace prize for his efforts.

It fuelled the flames of discontent within the country. Example: When the battleship crewmen of the Russian Battleship Potemkin (stationed in the Black Sea) received news of t…heir sister battleship squadron being destroyed at Tsushima in May 1905...the Potemkin crewmen mutinied.
Well, the most people thought of Russians as big mean brutes, kinda like barbarians. And most people thought of the Japanese to be small people who couldn't do anything. but t…he Japanese defeat the Russians through small naval fights and the Russians lost all of them, so if you don't win any of the naval battles, it will be embarrassing as in this case to the Russians
The first great war of the 20th century: Tsarist Russia dispatched two of her battleship fleets to fight the Japanese battleship fleets at the Yellow Sea and Tsushima Strates.… The former was a draw; the latter a Japanese victory. The Russian Army was dispatched across the Eurasian continent via the newly constructed Siberian Railroad to the region near present day North Korea. There the Russian & Japanese armies clashed from 1904 to 1905.
It was a war fought between Russia and Japan in 1904 thru most of 1905 and the first major war of the 20th century. It was a precursor to World War I and reduced the Russian f…leet to a fraction of its former strength. A 1 1/2 year war between Russia and Japan over control of Korea/Port Arthur and surrounding areas.
Russia's government was shaken by the 1905 Revolutions and Bloody Sunday which were partly caused by the Russo-Jap war. The citizens of Russia were unhappy with their co…untry and wanted them to stop fuelling the Russo-Jap war, decrease work day to 8 hours, clean up the corrupt government and demobilized soldiers of the Russo-Jap war were vandalizing railways in anger. These events lead to more political terrorism in Russia, along with the killing of unarmed, peaceful protestors by the Russian Imperial guard on Bloody Sunday. Russia's foundation of absolute monarchy is challenged as new opposition parties rose.
The Russo-Japanese war (1904-1905) was a competition for control of Manchuria, Korea and ports in northern China. The Russians wanted a warmer Pacific port because theirs woul…d freeze in the winter. The Japanese had learned the value of imperialism from the Europeans, and were staking out Eastern Asia as their own sphere of influence. The war cost Russia most of their most powerful naval vessels, not to mention their international prestige, and it also weakened them militarily in Europe.
In the Russian revolution the Communists lead by Lenin took control of Russia and stopped fighting the Germans which allowed the Germans to focus all their power on the wester…n front.
Russia and Japan were arguing over territory in Korea and Manchuria (a region in northern China).
There were three major effects: 1. Establishment of the Japanese Imperial Navy as a major naval power. 2. Removal of the Russian Navy from the European n…aval arms race, which allowed Germany to compete against Britain without competition. 3. Britain's approval to lay the keel of HMS Dreadnought in October 1905. The number one effect was the construction of HMS Dreadnought four months after the Battle of Tsushima, which had validated the concept of an all-big-gun battleship. The launching of Dreadnought in 1906 commenced a new world naval arms race which led directly into World War I

For the Russians their battlefleets had to travel 18,000 miles one way just to get there. Their armies had to march or railroad a long distance to get to the front. Transporta…tion was the problem. For Japan, they were running out of money and men. Resources were the problems.
