      So much has been conveniently forgotten about the events from
      February '17 to July '18.

      On February 26, 1917 there were about 300 000 people on the streets
      of Petrograd calling for the downfall of the Tsar. Repression was
      impossible. All the Tsar's senior generals had told him this and - on
      the advice of M. Rodzianko the Speaker of the Duma - convinced him to
      abdicate.

      The 250 000 soldiers of the Petrograd garrison had gone over to the
      people's side on February 27, forcing the police in the capital to
      flee. People called for the Tsar and the Empress to be shot. "And
      they shouldn't spare the daughters" was a popular refrain. No armed
      force could have put down what became a national uprising against the
      monarchy. Perhaps someone such as yourself could've stepped forward
      and warned the people that it was a sin to rise up against the Tsar.
      If they failed to listen, what then?
