Painting of the Salt Riot on Red Square by Ernest Lissner in 1938. It began in 1648 when the Russian government replaced taxes with a single salt tax that hurt the serfs who could not afford it, to rebuild the state treasury. Salted fish was a diet staple & the people faced starvation.Tsar Alexei I Mikhailovich Romanov (Aleksei & Aleksey) (29 Mar 1629- 29 Jan 1676) Russia was able to end the violent riot by temporarily exiling Boris Morozov who the people blamed for the tax.
