The article analyzes the causes of dual power formed in Russia as a result of the February 1917 Revolution, which mostly were an expressed anarchy and people's and political groups desire for getting free from social obligations. Confrontation between Petrograd Soviet and Provisional Government was supported by comparative assessments of the situation by Bolshevik leader Vladimir Lenin, as well as by obvious practices of printed media regulating by both centers of power e. g. the policy of liberalization on the part of the Provisional Government and the policy of control over newspapers content on the part of Petrograd Soviet. The protracted opposition has resulted in usurpation of power by Bolsheviks.
