Russian revolutionary. He was a representative of the moderate Labour Party in the Fourth Duma (1912) and joined the Socialist Revolutionary Party during the Russian Revolution.

Determined to continue the war against Germany, he failed to implement agrarian and economic reforms, and his government was overthrown by the Bolsheviks in the October Revolution. He escaped to Paris, where he continued as an active propagandist against the Soviet regime.
