  History of St. Petersburg, Russia: Petrograd during WWI and the Revolution
Petrograd stepped into the New Year with its inhabitants infuriated by the long lines in front of food shops.
While the fit men were leaving the city for the fronts of the Civil War, a significant portion of the population migrated to the countryside, where families found it easier to provide for themselves.
By the beginning of 1918 the German troops were so close to Petrograd that the Bolshevik government of Vladimir Lenin decided to move the capital to Moscow, which was still far from the front.

 Ayn Rand [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
At the University of Petrograd, Rand concentrated her studies on history, with secondary focuses on philosophy and literature.
At university, she was repelled by the dominance of communist ideas and strong-arm tactics that suppressed free inquiry and discussion.
Rand graduated from the University of Petrograd in 1924.

Meanwhile, internal unrest grew in Russia, as the Tsar remained out of touch at the front, while the Empress's increasingly incompetent rule drew protests from all segments of Russian political life, resulting in the murder of Alexandra's favourite Rasputin by conservative noblemen at the end of 1916.
Petersburg culminated in the abdication of Tsar Nicholas II and the appointment of a weak centrist provisional government, which shared power with the socialists of the Petrograd Soviet.
This division of power led to confusion and chaos, both on the front and at home, and the army became progressively less able to effectively resist Germany.

 Bakhtin Circle [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
Pumpianskii, it is known, never finished his studies at Petrograd university, while it is doubtful whether Bakhtin had any formal higher education at all despite his claims, now disproven, to have graduated from the same University in 1918.
Nikolai Bakhtin had a solid classical education from his German governess and graduated from Petrograd University, where he had been a pupil of the renowned classicist F.F. Zelinskii.
Bakhtin had therefore been exposed to philosophical ideas since his youth.
