Russia, 1905 - 1917, The Causes of Revolutionary Change
Q2. Using your knowledge of the events of 1917 (March - November) explain why the Provisional Government failed to hold on to power.
In February of 1917, an assortment of workers that totalled a number exceeding 200,00 came en masse to launch a strike on the Tsar's palace in Petrograd. In return, the Tsar ordered his troops to use force against the strikers; they refused, as they would be fighting against their own people. After over three hundred years of rule, the Tsarist system had finally come to a climax, leaving the Tsar with one possible option, which was to renounce his powers. However, the common thought was that the lower classes of society led to the abdication of the Tsar, but the higher members of society had pushed and cornered him into his final abdication. The legacy of the Tsarist system had finally come to a crashing end, in which Tsar Nicholas II left the country knowing of his unpopularity with the Russian people and fled into exile.
There was not a single reason why the Provisional Government failed to hold on
