Export of revolution

Export of revolution is actions by a victorious revolutionary government of one country to promote similar revolutions in unruled areas or other countries, as a manifestation of revolutionary internationalism of certain kind, e.g., the Marxist proletarian internationalism.[1]

Fred Halliday[1] analyzes the traits of the export of revolution by case studies of French Revolution, Soviet Russia/Soviet Union, People's Republic of China, Cuba of Fidel Castro, and Iran of Ayatollah Khomeini.
