The February revolution is interesting in that all of Nicholas II repudiated: the grand dukes, the top generals, the church, the State Duma, and representatives of all the leading political parties. The Tsar was not overthrown by the Bolshevik commissars and Red Guards, as inspired by the inhabitants of Russia from the 1991 year, but by representatives of the then “elite” of the Russian Empire. Generals and ministers, masons of high degrees, industrialists and bankers. The educated elite of Russia, wealthy, wealthy people who dreamed of a “free Russia”, who want to make France or England out of Russia.
All of them were eager to overthrow tsarism, autocracy. Wherein almost all monarchist overthrowers lost in the end. Lord Rodzyanko, Milyukov, Guchkov, Lviv, Shulgin, Kerensky and others ascended to the top of the power Olympus, became the rulers of Russia, eventually destroyed a great power, lost everything, fled the country, many eked out a miserable existence. Many grand dukes will be destroyed. Grand Duke Mikhail Alexandrovich, who refused to accept the Russian throne and make an attempt to save the monarchy, was killed. Aristocrats, landowners, representatives of the industrial and financial elite, the highest bureaucracy, all those who were the owner of life in old Russia, the owner of property and capital, lost most of their property, wealth, emigrated, many ended up in poverty. The usual picture was that in the major cities of Europe, former Russian nobles and officers earned taxi drivers, while aristocrats went to the panel.
The old bourgeoisie (the Russian national bourgeoisie), who consistently opposed the Romanov dynasty, supported the revolutions and wanted to sweep away the Romanovs, they were considered persecutors of the Russian faith, they were swept away by the revolution. The whole separate Old Believer world that existed in the Russian Empire was simply destroyed.
The generals who took part in the overthrow of the tsar “for the sake of preserving the army and successfully continuing the war” will witness the collapse of the armed forces, the front and the country and become a participant in the new civil war. Some generals will become participants in the White movement, others will support various nationalists, and others will make the most sensible choice, stand for the Reds, for the people. The officers will also be split, a significant part will die on the sidelines of the Civil War. Thousands of officers will flee the country, become poor, or lay down their heads in all major and minor wars and conflicts around the world (they will again become "cannon fodder" in other people's wars). The church, which easily accepted the abdication of its head - the emperor, first won - restored the patriarchate. However, then her fate will be tragic, the church will also have to answer for their historical error.
Thus, the victorious February revolutionaries could not become a real power, cope with the chaos growing in Russia, only aggravating it with their actions and in less than a year the country was in complete disarray. During the spring-summer of 1917, the Februaryists were so bored by everyone that the Bolsheviks, in alliance with the Left SRs (supported by the workers and peasants), easily took the power that was actually falling, picked it up. None of the Provisional Government did not protect. They criticized the tsarist regime, blaming it for all sins, and they themselves simply destroyed the “old Russia”, a real civilizational disaster occurred. The Bolsheviks simply began a new chapter in Russian history.
The main driving forces of February
The ruling elite. The ruling elite itself became the main revolutionary squad in the Russian Empire. The grand dukes, the aristocracy, the dignitaries, the industrial and financial elite, and a significant part of the political elite (Duma and political figures) all opposed the autocracy. Many opposed personally Tsar Nicholas II, but in the end they came out against the “old Russia” and cut the bitches on which they themselves sat. Having destroyed the “old Russia”, the Romanov empire, they destroyed their “forage base,” the environment in which they were the “elite,” flourished.
The reason was that from the beginning of the 18th century, Western concepts and ideas dominated in the upbringing and education of the Russian elite. The native languages of the nobility were German, French and English. For years aristocrats burned their lives in Italy, Germany and France. Russia was only a source of income. Under Peter I, the Westernization of the Romanovs became irreversible. Russia began to turn into the ideological and raw materials periphery of Western Europe. In the XVIII century in Russia there was a cultural revolution. They literally drove into the social elite of Russia, etched out a new, European civilization. Russian people are artificially divided: on the nobility- "Europeans" and the rest, mostly peasant world, which retained the foundations of Russian culture based on folk traditions.
Thus, in the Romanov empire there would be a congenital vice, a split of the people into two unequal parts, the "people", the Westernized elite and the people themselves. And since the time of Catherine II, who abolished the compulsory service of the nobility, which more or less forced ordinary people to accept the privileged position of the noble landowners, an ever greater degradation (decomposition) of the elite of the Russian Empire began. More and more nobles lived the life of social parasites, burned through years in European capitals, and there they spent the wealth of the people who were squeezed out of Russia. By the beginning of the 20th century, the situation had already become unbearable. The Russian people could no longer tolerate this social injustice.
At the same time, the Westernized "elite" itself sawed the branch on which she was sitting, destroying autocracy, sacred power, the last core of the empire. Many of the revolutionaries of the Februaryists were Masons, that is, members of closed clubs, lodges, claiming the role of "architects-masons" of the new world order. Freemasons appeared in the West, and Russian Freemasons followed the Western centers along the hierarchy. The interests of various groups and families of the ruling elite were coordinated in these boxes. They were going to create a matrix of Western-type societies in Russia, focusing on England and France (a constitutional monarchy and a bourgeois republic).
The ruling elite in Russia had strength, wealth, influence, but the "elite" was eager for full power. And autocracy was a barrier to true power. Over the emperor-king, they were not imperious. The Russian autocrat was so full of power that he could change the concept of the development of the whole civilization, like Peter Alekseevich, who turned Russia to the western path of development. Moreover, there were such examples. Pavel Petrovich, Nikolai I and Alexander III somehow tried to Russify the ruling elite, to return Russia to the original path of development. However, failed. The originality of Russia could for some time be returned only by the Russian communists headed by Stalin. Thus, the Russian autocracy was, in the opinion of the Westernized Russian elite, a relic of old times, which interfered with the final westernization of Russia. On the other hand, autocratic power was dangerous, since the Russian throne could have been a man who could turn the “Russian troika” onto a distinctive path of development, so that it was unacceptable both for Westerners inside the country and for external “partners” of Russia.
In addition, the archaic political system of Russia, in the opinion of the February-Westernists, prevented the country from finally moving to capitalist rails, that is, more effectively redistributing resources in their favor. Westerners wanted “market”, “democracy” and “freedom”. Yes, and the property of the royal family had to share. The Westernizers believed that if they lead Russia, they will be able to manage it more effectively, including the economic sphere. That in Russia it will be as good (for the social elite) as in “sweet Europe”. Russian masons liked to live in Europe, such a "sweet, civilized." The same orders they dreamed of inflicting in "backward Russia." They believed that "the West will help them" as soon as they eliminate the king. As a result, it became a terrible shock for them when the West did not help them. Rather, the West helped the various groups of fevlists to start a civil war between Russians and Russians, but the help was dosed out. The masters of the West at the same time supported a part of the Bolsheviks (revolutionists-internationalists) in order to exterminate as many Russians as possible in the civil war, to undermine their demographics, the gene pool.
Why did the Westernizers of the Februaryists perpetuate the February revolution, when only a little was left before the victory of the Entente? Otmashku gave the owners of the West. The masters of England, France and the USA did not want to see autocratic Russia in the camp of the victors. They could not give even an insignificant chance for the modernization of the Russian Empire on the wave of victory. The Russian Empire was sentenced long ago, and the wars with Japan and Germany were supposed to destabilize it first and then finish it off. Therefore, they allowed the Russian Freemasons to become the organizing force of the February revolution. At the same time, western embassies and special services also took the role of organizers, in every way supporting conspirators.
Russian Westerners bought into a “carrot” - hoping to build a “sweet Europe”, and hoping “for the help of the West” in this matter. They were simply used, and then "the Moor did his job, the Moor can leave." The fevralists were the first wave - they crushed the autocracy, we will launch a massive confusion. Then other waves of destruction were launched - revolutionaries-internationalists, nationalists, just bandits (criminal revolution). As a result, they should not have left a stone unturned from Russian civilization and the Russian super-ethnos. And the resources of Russia were to serve in the creation of a new world order (global slave civilization). The plans of our enemies were thwarted by the Russian communists, who began to build socialism in a single country, and significantly thinning the "fifth column".
Russian Westerners dreamed of establishing a Western-type regime in Russia. And they wanted to start the process of building a “new Russia” on the wave of victory over Germany, Austria-Hungary and Turkey. Hence the "war to the bitter end." That completely coincided with the interests of the owners of the West. Until the last moment, Russia should have been a source of “cannon fodder” and other resources in the struggle with the powers of the Central Bloc.
Thus, without having complete political and sacral power (autocracy), the upper Russian Empire, which included various forces, including grand dukes, the aristocracy, many dignitaries and bureaucrats, the industrial, financial and trading elite, the military elite, liberal politicians and the intelligentsia, wanted overthrow tsarism, get complete power in Russia and direct it along the western path of development. In this case, focusing not on Germany, but mainly on England and France. The pro-Western top of Russia went, was organized through the Masonic lodges and Western embassies, special services. The masters of the West solved the thousand-year-old “Russian question” with the hands of the Russian “fifth column” —for the destruction of the main enemy on the planet — the Russian civilization and the super-ethnos of the Rus. Therefore, instead of a triumphal victory, the February revolutionaries caused a catastrophe of "old Russia", in which they themselves flourished, and confusion, when centuries-old social ulcers broke out.
External forces interested in the collapse of the Russian Empire
Russian-Japanese War 1904-1905 was organized by the masters of the West as a rehearsal for the destruction of the Russian Empire. Japanese ram was used to test the "immunity" of the empire, its armed forces, to try to destabilize it and cause a revolution. The rehearsal was successful. The war showed the weakness and stupidity of the Russian supreme military and political leadership, which could not prepare for the war in the Far East and defeat the weaker adversary. The empire was destabilized, experienced various revolutionary groups - from liberals to revolutionaries and nationalists. However, it was obvious that the royal power still has a powerful support - the army and the so-called. “Black Hundreds” (right-wing, conservative part of the population), with the help of which the revolution of 1905-1907 was suppressed.
A detonator was needed, a fuse that would destroy the last support of the autocracy and cause the collapse of the empire. It was the First World War, which was unleashed by the masters of the West and dragged Russia into it. The war revealed all social, economic and national problems that had long been accumulating in the Romanov empire. Russia began to fight for the interests of France and England, saving them from the Germans. Russia during the war regularly supplied "cannon fodder", rescuing the "allies" and was a "cash cow", which sucked gold from them. Personnel imperial army was killed on the battlefields. Millions of peasants, who saw no point in the war, were put under the gun and dreamed only of leaving the front and starting the redistribution of landlordism. They rotted in the trenches, died during meaningless attacks, and knew that at that time their parents and children were living in the rear on the verge of starvation, and bourgeois gentlemen were living in pubs and restaurants. Thousands of representatives of the liberal intelligentsia joined the officers and dreamed of overthrowing tsarism and building a “free Russia”.
Right (Black Hundred) forces during the war were completely discredited. In addition, the government before the war did not think of creating a full-fledged support in the person of right-wing, conservative parties and movements, although during the first revolution of 1905-1907. traditionalist conservatives had a huge social base, all of which was lost. The generals, seeing the weakness and mistakes of the tsarist regime, wanted a “firm hand” that would bring order to the rear and bring the war to a victorious end. As a result, the generals agreed to “surrender” the king, so that the new “responsible government” would bring the war to victory. As a result, the war completely destabilized the empire, knocked out the last support from under it, created conditions for a revolution (coup).
The hosts of England, France and the United States successfully conducted an operation to set Russia on Germany, Austria-Hungary, and Turkey. The war had to solve several strategic tasks at once:
- to destabilize Russia, to cause a revolutionary situation; push the ruling "elite" to overthrow the autocracy, which hinted at the "help of the West" in creating a "new, free Russia";
- to bleed and decompose the Russian armed forces, so that they, from the pillars of the empire and autocracy, themselves become a source of unrest;
- The war was supposed to lead to the destruction of the Russian Empire, the Russian army. Power passed to the liberal-bourgeois Provisional Government, which would lead Russia along the Western path of development. What led to even greater chaos and confusion, the complete collapse of Russia into national, "independent" republics and bantustans. As a result, the masters of the West obtained control over the resources of the entire Russian civilization, which should have allowed them to build a new world order.
- The aristocratic empires collapsed - Russian, German, Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman, in order to free the way for a new, "democratic" world, where all power belonged to the "gold elite" (or "financial international");
- the destruction of Europe in the flames of a big war allowed the old elites of the Old World to be crushed under the United States, which took the place of the leader of the Western project. The United States (together with England) gained dominant positions in the West and in the world as a whole. In fact, it was a war for absolute power on the planet: the owners of the United States and England planned to destroy the old world and build a new world order, where it would be possible to plunder and parasitize on the body of humanity.
