1918 – Diplomatic ties between the U.S. and Russia were severed.



Diplomatic relations severed between U.S. & Bolshevist govt. / Berryman.
Summary
World War I cartoon shows Uncle Sam talking to the Russian bear who is on a leash held by a scruffy little man labeled “Bolshevism.” Uncle Sam says, “You’re all right! It’s your leadership I can’t accept.” In November 1917, the Bolsheviks seized power in Russia and made peace with Germany. Although efforts were made to effect a rapprochement between the new regime and the United States, the U.S. government eventually joined with the British and the French in various unsuccessful military actions against the Bolshevik government.
