Ilyich was right. Who made up the new government?
Landowners and capitalists.
They still sent workers and peasants to the war, and did not want to give up land and factories.
Peasants all over the country rallied together.
And in Leningrad, near the Tauride Palace, workers and soldiers organized a demonstration and demanded:
“Power to the Soviets!”
