Related to a benevolent revolutionary (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

kindred

Here is my best explanation:

'related' is the definition.

('kindred' can be a synonym of 'related')

'a benevolent revolutionary' is the subsidiary indication.

'a benevolent' becomes 'kind' (I've seen this before).

'revolutionary' becomes 'red'.

'kind'+'red'='kindred'

'to' is the link.

This clue was last seen in Evening Standard

(Other definitions for kindred that I've seen before include "Congenial", "Relatives", "Like", "Closely related", "[TRIBAL]", "Relatively", "Related (people)", "Affinity", "Related; similar in kind" and "clan".)
