1. The government of Kerenskiy-Miliukov, likewise the Tsar regime of Russia continued oppressing the national minorities residing in a former Russian Empire.
2. But after the victory of the October Revolution, in the center of Russia the power was taken by workers and peasants and bourgeoisie started to strengthen their position in the provinces manipulating with the national feelings of the trans-frontier nations. Using the national movements, the bourgeoisie led the government and created the republics in the remote territories, which were fully dependent to the world imperialism (the Entente).

The next step will be the close union with the Soviet Federation.
