  18. 18. The peaceful protest achieved its goal four days after the demonstration, on 12 April 1917, when the Provisional Government issued an order on the provisional autonomy of Estonia. The Livonian counties of Tartu, Võru, Viljandi, Pärnu and Saaremaa were united with the rest of the country to form the autonomous Governorate of Estonia. There was another achievement – for the first time, an Estonian, Jaan Poska, was appointed as the provincial commissioner of Estonia. On 8 April 1917, 40,000 Estonians held a demonstration in St Petersburg in support of the self- governing autonomy for their country.
