Migrant in Moscow

Fun in the winter sun

A quiet day.

Not so in Russia on this day in 1917.

The New York Times reported this view from Petrograd: 

"  German propaganda is busy in Russia. On the Nevsky Prospect, ten minutes from the Winter Palace, little arguing, expostulating assemblies can be found even as late as 3 o’clock in the morning. They are arguing about the war. Questions why Russia should shed blood in a new offensive to fill the pockets of Anglo-French capitalists can be heard.  Assertions that the Germans are the best friends of Russia resound. " 

How times change.
