Best Answer

Leon Trotsky was part of the Bolshevic party during the early years of the USSR. After Lenin (the previous leader of the USSR) died in the 1920's, Trotsky and Joseph Stalin both fought for the power of ruling the USSR. Stalin won, and then exiled Trotsky, afraid that he might organize a military coup to overthrow Stalin.

he left because he was expelled from the communist party. He was later assinated by an ice axe

Trotsky left Russia because he was ordered to. He had already been expelled from the Communist Party but it was not until later that he was ordered to get out of the country.

Trotsky was expelled from the country first to Turkey, then France, then Norway, finally to Mexico. In 1940 he was assassinated by KGB ordered by Stalin. A Russian agent plunged the pointed end of an ice ax into Trotsky's skull killing him. The assassin was able to reach Trotsky by pretending to be interested in some of the articles written by Trotsky.

Why was Trotsky exiled from Russia?

Leon Trotsky posed a threat to Joseph Stalin's hold on the power in Russia after Lenin's death. Many Bolshevik leaders supported Trotsky's philosophy of "permanent revolution" while others supported Stalin's policy of "socialism in one country." Stalin allied himself with Grigory Zinoviev and Lev Kamenev against Trotsky and eventually had enough people loyal to him to expel Trotsky from the Communist Party. Trotsky continued to criticize Stalin and tried to line up support against Stalin. Stalin knew the only way to completely eliminate Trotsky as a rival would be to get him out of the country entirely, so Trotsky was exiled to Turkey.Trotsky was exiled because of his opposition to Stalin.The excuse Stalin gave for the exile of Trotsky was that he did not go to Lenins funeral-but Stalin idid not invite him to the funeral.
