This chapter presents a translation of the Russian-language transcripts of the interview with Nikolai VissarionovichNekrasov (1879–1940), the leading Left Kadet deputy to the last imperial Duma. During the February Revolution Nekrasov was one of the architects of the Duma Committee, and together with Kerenskii and Engel'gardt, he was among the most active and influential organizers of revolutionary forces in the Duma. He is especially credited with leading the efforts to manipulate the movement of the imperial train while on its way from General Headquarters to Petrograd (which led to Nicholas' abdication). In his interview, Nekrasovprovides many previously unknown details about his participation in the two historic negotiations with Grand Duke Mikhail: on the evening of 27 February for the transition of authority to the Duma, and on 3 March when the Grand Duke was persuaded to renounce the throne. The interview represents the earliest and most complete account of his activities during the February Days.
