This chapter presents a translation of the Russian-language transcripts of the interview with Nikolai SemenovichChkheidze (1864–1926), a leading Georgian Social Democrat (Menshevik) of his day, deputy to the last two imperial Dumas, and the chairman of the Petrograd Soviet from 27 February to 9 September 1917. The interview represents Chkheidze's only known testimony on the February Revolution, in which he played a central role, and provides important glimpses into the mindset of a revolutionary leader, the establishment of the Petrograd Soviet's authority, and the workings of “dual power” in March-April 1917.

Keywords:   Chkheidze, Soviet Executive Committee, Petrograd Soviet, Russian Social Democracy, dual power
