The announcement in Russian reads: "From the Military Revolutionary Committee of the Petrograd Soviet of Workers' and Soldiers' Deputies. To the Citizens of Russia.

State power has passed into the hands of the organ of the Petrograd Soviet of Workers' and Soldiers' Deputies, the Military-Revolutionary Committee, which stands at the head of the Petrograd proletariat and garrison. The cause for which the people have been fighting: the immediate offer of a democratic peace; the abolition of land ownership, workers' control over production, the creation of a Soviet government.
