This a picture of men who were declared anti-revolutionary and deserving of extermination. The officers of the troops in Petrograd gathered in the square of the Winter Palace before marching to the Duma to take their oath of allegiance to the Revolution. These are the men that the Bolsheviki called "bourgeoisie" and for the last year have been tortured and killed by the anacharists, who have sezed control of Russia.
