Tsar Nicholas II:
The Russia my father gave me never lost a war. What shall I say to my son when the time comes? That I had no pride? That I was weak? I've always thought God meant me to rule. He put me here. He chose me, and whatever happens is His will. We shall fight on until victory.
Count Witte:
There will be no victory. Only strikes and riots. You must give your people a little of what they want, sir. Not all. Just, a taste.

Transcript:
...while there's time.
The Russia my father
gave me never lost a war.
What shall I say to my son
when the time comes?
That I had no pride?
That I was weak?
I've always thought...
...God meant me to rule.
He put me here.
He chose me, and whatever
happens is His will.
We shall fight on to victory.
There will be no victory.
Only strikes and riots.
You must give your people
a little of what they want, sir.
Not all...
...just a taste.
The English have a parliament.
Our British cousins
gave their rights away.
The Habsburgs and
the Hohenzollerns too.
The Romanovs will not.
What I was given...
...I will give my son.
These comrades want a larger movement
that will embrace...
...all politically-minded people
who can subscribe to a wider dogma.
They wish to join hands...
Excuse me.
May I?
