The Fall of Tsarism

This chapter presents a translation of the Russian-language transcripts of the interview with Mikhail Ivanovich Tereshchenko (1886–1956), the deputy chairman of the all-Russian Central War Industries Committee and a key figure in the A.I. Guchkov-led plot to depose Nicholas II. Tereshchenko was also a leading participant in the February Revolution, and served in every cabinet of the Provisional Government from 2 March to 25 October 1917. This interview represents his only known testimony. With its focus on the first day of the February Revolution and the preceding developments, the interview sheds new light on such usually taboo topics as the preparations of a plot to remove Nicholas II. It also suggests previously unknown connections between some of the main personalities of the February Days, andhelps explain Tereshchenko's appointment to the first revolutionary government.

Keywords:   war industries committee, Guchkov-led plot, A.I. Konovalov, A.A. Brusilov, N.I. Ivanov, A.A. Manikovskii
