Restoration of military censorship and other outcomes of the July 1917 uprising in Petrograd

Cover Page


On July 3-5, 1917 the Bolshevik propaganda triggered an armed uprising of the Petrograd garrison units. It led to forming a new Provisional Government which launched a campaign against the Bolsheviks and their press organs ending with imposing restrictions on the freedom of the press in general and restoring of military pre-censorship. Other results of the uprising were the loss of the Provisional Government authority, the rising popularity and number of Bolsheviks in the Council, which played a crucial role in the success of the coup on October 25.
