The Mensheviks (officially a 'minority,' the Mensheviks were in fact the majority among Russian Socialists) were a Marxist group in Russia around the time of its communist revolution, which brought about a socialist state via garnering and maintaining popular support - in short, a social democracy. The Mensheviks lost out to the more radical Bolsheviks.

The chief Menshevik was Julius Martov.
