Best Answer

Lenin and the Bolsheviks came into power on October 26, the culmination of the two day October Revolution. Prior to that, the Russian Provisional Government was in power. Arrest warrants were out for Lenin since July, 1917 and he had to flee the country to Finland to avoid capture. He snuck back in under disguise to organize the October insurrection which brought him and the Bolsheviks into power.
