The causes of the Russian Revolution start with the problems, when the duma declared the provisional government it took into hands not only the country but its problems as well, because the government inherited the economic problems it put a great strain on the country's resources thus affecting its performance to run the country properly. The decision by the government to continue the war effort was not like by the people, the reason why Kerensky wanted to keep Russia in the war was so that when they won the war he would be re-elected. During this time many of the political parties that had been working underground finally came to the surface, the main contenders were the Bolsheviks and the Mensheviks. The Mensheviks want a social reform but wanted it to be done in gradual way with each change being looked at by the government and then implemented democratically, but the Bolsheviks had a different idea and wanted to take control of the government and cause a revolution.
