Russia most definitely did participate in World War I. Russia was defeated by Germany in 1917. Rusia suffered a huge defeat in the Battle of Tannenberg in 1914, and by the time Russia signed a peace treaty with Germany in early 1918 nearly 4,000,000 Russians are estimated to have been POWs. Lenin's Bolshevik government agreed to peace on German terms, as the Bolsheviks by 1918 were more concerned with consolidating their power.
