because Russia was actively entering the world market. Europe wanted to prevent this. America was on the rise at the moment, so they sent raiders to Russia in order to cripple her abilities to compete.

I'd offer you to leave here your opinion about this revolution: what it was for the World history and what it could be without the Civil war in Russia after it and without the Entente's pressure? What do you think about reasons of the revolution and could the western society to help to prevent it?
The October revolution wasn't a revolution--it was a coup d'etat. The revolution had already taken place in February and the anarchy and unrest was stoked by the Soviets despite "power-sharing with teh provisional Government. The Bolsheviks took control of key points of the Government (as far as it existed) just as elections were being held--they still lost only 175 seats out of 715. The Bolsheviks theoretically went into co-alition with the SRs, but didn't allow the Duma to meet until January 1918 FOR ONE DAY, then, when they lost a vote, they closed it down and Russia had no free election again until the end of the 20thC.

If the Tsarist autocracy was successful and victorious why did it get so badly beaten in WW1?

it didn't because the tsar had formed the Triple Entente with France and Britain that won the war. Russia in fact won WWI, it was Soviet Russia which lost it.
