At the time, when the World War forces were already gathered, there lived in Russia one happy family, in which husband and wife doted each other, and children were surrounded by care and love. Perhaps there were quite a lot of such families. But we shall talk about only one, the family of Nicholay Alexandrovich and Alexandra Feodorovna, the Emperor and the Empress.
We begin to publish fragments from the new book by S.Y. Rybas “They are the first to enter the Hell, or the total plot”. This is a book about the February 1917, about secret circumstances and figures of the coup d’état, accomplished by political, financial and military top of the Russian Empire. The author examines the nature of the plot as a problem of relations between society and the power on the background of intra-collision of economic and political interests, as well as international competition for access to resources and communications.
