The development of large-scale industry in Russia was based first of all on the desire of the Government to emancipate the country from dependence on foreign supplies of manufactured goods. The various factors governing the localization of industry, such as proximity to raw material and power, and presence of suitable labour, capital and organizing ability were at work in Russia as in other countries. The prevalence of domestic or "kustar" industry in Russia was a factor which prevented large-scale industry from becoming assimilated into the general economic structure of the country as quickly as it otherwise might. The nature of the Labour movement in Russia can only be understood in the light of the paternal and despotic attitude of the Government. The admission of the principle of legal trade unionism was a concession granted by the Government as a result of the revolutionary movement of 1905.
