The Response to the Outbreak of the War

Beattie, Mikayla, Natasha, Julia


Response 1 public support

  • Popular discontent with the political and economic circumstances forgotten.

  • People prayed, shouted, carried flags – Long Live Russia.

  • Bowed to Tsar. Repaired division between Tsar and people.

  • Bruce Lockhart, British vice-consul in Moscow – ‘Revolution was not even a distant possibility’.

Response 1- Public Support


Response 2 durnovo s warnings

  • Durnovo was a member of the upper class through his role in bureaucracy.

  • Later became a minister of the interior under prime minister Witte.

  • Durnovo provided the clearest warming to Nicholas of the grave dangers involved in war.

  • In February 1914 he argued that Russia would be irreparably damaged whether it won or lost.

  • He said “If Russia lost, the financial and economic consequences of defeat can be neither calculated or foreseen.”

  • It will undoubtedly spell total disintegration of our entire national economy.

  • If Russia won the war the only benefit would be the easy defeat or the socialist movement.

Response 2- Durnovo’s Warnings


Lenin s condemnation

  • Lenin declared the war to be merely another example of the wealthy bourgeois upper class manipulating the toiling masses for their gain.

  • “We summon you to a social revolution.” –Lenin

  • He called for the immediate formation of socialist groups that would go to the front to win over their fellow workers.

  • Lenin’s approach received little support.
