What would Russia's foreign policy look like in a scenario where there was no World War I (at least not yet) and Russia nevertheless experienced a revolution as a result of Tsar Nicholas II's unwillingness to successfully deal with issues that were important to his population?

Would a post-revolutionary Russia led by moderate socialists (I'm assuming that there is much less chance of the Bolsheviks coming to power in Russia in this TL due to the lack of WWI) have maintained its alliance with France--both for security reasons and also for reasons of republican solidarity?

Also, what about a post-revolutionary Russia's attitude towards Germany, Austria-Hungary, the Ottoman Empire, Persia, Afghanistan, China, and Japan? Would a post-revolutionary Russia continue with Tsarist Russia's policies of Pan-Slavism and territorial expansion or would it have a different agenda?

In addition, while a post-revolutionary Russia led by moderate socialists might very well be willing to allow Poland to secede in exchange for a military alliance between it and Russia, is it going to fight to the death to preserve the rest of its territory? Or is it going to be willing to allow other territories of its to secede as well, and if so, which territories?
