General Alexeiev Quotes in Nicholas and Alexandra (1971)
General Alexeiev Quotes:
General Alexeiev: Your majesty, I'm afraid it's too late. The Duma has appointed a provisional government, and all your ministers have been arrested.
Tsar Nicholas II: Order... your troops... to march...
General Alexeiev: At this moment, sire, if my troops knew the Tsar was here, there's every chance they would turn on you. And, sire, the Duma also insists on your abdication.
Alexander Kerensky: The Bolsheviks have taken over the station, the telegraphs, the banks? If we had loyal troops, how many would it take to dislodge them?
General Alexeiev: One regiment would be enough. But we haven't got a regiment! At least, not one I can trust.
