The RUSSIAN REPUBLIC (also known as RUSSIA) (Russian : Российская республика, tr. Rossiyskaya respublika; IPA: ) was a short-lived state that controlled, de jure , the territory of the former Russian Empire
Russian Empire
between its proclamation by the Russian Provisional Government on 1 September in a decree signed by Kerensky as Minister-President and Zarudny as Minister of Justice.

Less than six weeks later, the Republic was overtaken by the October Revolution beginning on 25 October 1917 and the establishment of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic (Russian SFSR).

Officially, the Republic's government was the Provisional Government, although de facto control of the country and its armed forces was divided between the Provisional Government and the Petrograd Soviet .

The term Russian Republic
Russian Republic
is sometimes used erroneously for the period between the abdication of the Emperor Nicholas II on 2 March 1917 and the declaration of the Republic in September. However, during that period the future status of the monarchy remained to be resolved.
