We need at least 200-300 people, it's the only thing that can save us. Otherwise, we won't pull through.
A Provisional Government session is beginning. Konovalov reports on the events of last night and relays news of Kerensky’s departure and of the current defense situation. The ministers express their displeasure at the insufficient protective measures in place around the Winter Palace.
The Petrograd Soviet of Workers’ and Soldiers’ Deputies has declared the government deposed and demanded the transfer of power under the threat of bombardment of the Winter Palace by the canons of the Peter and Paul Fortress and battleship “Aurora.” The government can only hand over the power to the Constituent Assembly and has decided not to surrender and to give itself up for protection to the army and the people. Speed up the troop dispatch.
