The Provisional government was very clearly Liberal and Democratic - and the political system was that of a dual power system between the Provisional government and the Soviets (Hence Lenin, 'All power to the Soviets' and all that). I changed the background a little, it seemed to read like a Marxists wet dream version of history. MarcusCicero 11:36, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

Good edit, but is it necessary to talk about the Cold War in the conclusion, or d'you reckon it should just be axed at the point after World War 2? SJ Debaser 13:46, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

In what sense was the Provisional Government "democratic"? It was not elected in any way, nor did it hold elections or referendums of its own. Furthermore, despite promising to convene the Constituent Assembly (which would actually be elected, and would decide on the form of government etc) at the earliest possibility, the Provisional Government had stalled implementing that decision for months - indeed, this was precisely the line that Bolsheviks used to support their own uprising in October, and why they were backed by many other forces.

They missed the 5th of November by two days[edit]

It would have been a real thrill for American teenage communists. Aleksandra96 (talk) 21:30, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
