Russian Communists
Program of the Russian Social-Democratic Workers Party (Bolsheviks):
Russian capitalism is underdeveloped – but it is already bankrupt, unviable
The Russian state is unreformable
The only solution to the Russian crisis is to move directly to socialism, bypassing the capitalist phase
Overthrow of the old ruling classes
Establish a new state run by workers and peasants

But Russia is backward: how can it go socialist when Europe is still capitalist?
The Bolsheviks were convinced that the disaster of the First World War was bound to produce socialist revolutions in major European countries – in Germany, above all

However…….
As the year progressed the increasingly contrasting political makeup of the 2 bodies began to lead to disagreements. The Provisional Government moved further to the right politically and the Soviet moved to the left. This made cooperation much more difficult and tension between the 2 increased. The main issues of disagreement were Russia’s involvement in the world war and the land question.

The April Theses
On the 4th of April Lenin issued his ‘April Theses’. The ‘Theses’ set out Bolshevik policy and expressed Bolshevik support for the Soviets (he certainly recognised their importance as an established powerbase). Lenin stated that the February Revolution was only the first stage of the Revolution. He refused to compromise on his belief in the power of the worker. 
Began to use slogans – ‘Peace, Bread and Land’ and ‘All power to the Soviets’.

Strikes occurred to protest against the war.

July Days continued…..
Even though the Bolsheviks didn’t claim responsibility for the July Days fiasco, the Provisional Government saw it as a Bolshevik challenge to its authority and had many Bolsheviks arrested. Lenin fled Petrograd. The failure of the July Days severely hurt the reputation of the Bolshevik party as a serious revolutionary prospect.

The Kornilov Affair– a right-wing coup? 
Kornilov was an army officer who hated Lenin and the Soviets and had not fully accepted the February Revolution.
Kornilov made the decision to move troops to Petrograd to protect it against advancing German soldiers and growing unrest in the city itself.

Continued….
Kerensky publicly condemned Kornilov’s action saying that he was bringing the troops to overthrow the government.
Kerensky asked the people of Petrograd to fight against Kornilov – he gave weapons to ‘loyal’ people and released many Bolsheviks from prison so they could fight.
No fighting occurred in the end because Kornilov’s train was stopped on its way to Petrograd and he was arrested.
Bolsheviks claimed that they had ‘saved’ the revolution and that the Provisional Government and been shown to be vulnerable.
