POSITION OF THE AUCPB IN RELATION TO THE STATEMENT OF RUSSIAN PRESIDENT DMITRY MEDVEDEV, DEVOTED TO THE DAY OF MEMORY TO VICTIMS OF THE POLITICAL REPRESSIONS
The speech by President Dmitry Medvedev, (30/11/09) as expected, turned out to be along the lines of a pathological anti-Soviet, "weeping" over the liquidated by Stalin "fifth column" enemies of the Fatherland, the latest attempt to oppose, who fought to separate people from their leader - the Supreme Commander Stalin. History shows that no victory is impossible without the talented leadership of the leader. Under the leadership of Stalin, the people not only defeated Nazism, but also won a strong victory in the reconstruction in the shortest possible time, of the war-ravaged economy. Stalin made the country a world nuclear power, thereby eliminating the possibility of a third world war by the imperialists.
The illegitimate claim by the Russian President in his speech, are founded on unfounded arguments in their defence. Considering the "creative" pearls of Solzhenitsyn as a source of historically accurate facts – a more unserious argument of a person in position of head of state is difficult to imagine.
Everyone knows who Solzhenitsyn really is, - but not the president, unfortunately, following from his statement. Praising Solzhenitsyn is equivalent to glorifying the Biblical Judah (who, incidentally, has already been rehabilitated by Russia's mass media). The author, by anonymous denunciation of himself, written in order to escape from the front line, "snitching" on the "convicts" in the camp, a coward and a man without scruples, as he was regarded by close Jewish friends in school (being the same nationality as himself ), which he always betrayed and "looked down upon", regardless of his own national affinity with them.
Concerning the "creative writing" of Solzhenitsyn who had obviously not written in the style of fiction, but in the style of journalism, we should emphasize its plagiarised nature. Solzhenitsyn copied the plot for the opus ( "The Red Wheel") in libraries abroad with memoirs of an embittered Russian officer, who had fled abroad after the revolution. In his libel "One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich" he carried over fact about the destruction of "convicts" by tanks in a camp during the Khrushchev period over into the Stalin period, and, hence, Solzhenitsyn is also a forger. The drafts of another creation by the author - "The Gulag Archipelago" (also lampooning Soviet power) - "were edited and reported on the status of schizophrenic delusions until ready to print by a dozen experienced and talented editors of the CIA" (in the words of former U.S. Ambassador in Moscow, Mr. Bill - a prominent CIA operative). The utterly mendacious book gives no idea about the infamous "repressions" but only about the "zoological" anti-Sovietism and anti-communism of the author, who like other dissidents, was used in the U.S. for the collapse of the Soviet Union, and then thrown out as a worthless rag, back to Russia .
The youth of today (its 90%, as noted by the President) really do not know (and do not want to know), even the name now raised to the skies "popular" fame of the "repressed" and "the great and talented" real enemies of Soviet power. However, it is actively interested in J.V. Stalin, V.I. Lenin and Karl Marx, because they want to understand the postmodern "interpretations" of history: people are tired of "fables" of the Zionistic cosmopolitan media and their mentors abroad.
Now, in modern "democratic" Russia with a population of 141.9 million people (1.07.2009) annually as a result of homicide are killed up to a 100 thousand people, including those that died later in hospital after the attack on their lives and more than 70 thousand people disappear without a trace. Due to the sharp decline in living standards compared with Soviet times, poverty, unemployment, hopelessness in the future and banditry, the population of Russia by official statistics has decreased since the inception of "perestroika" by more than 500 thousand people every year (the official statistics underestimate). For comparison, despite the now lamented "repressions" in Russia under Stalin, there was steady growth in population every year. It turns out that now (without Stalin) Russia annually loses nearly a million of its citizens (in part going to fill the population at the expense of the citizens of Central Asia and Caucasus, moving to permanent residence in Russia and influenced the statistics of extinction of the Russian population). So who is the monster - Stalin, or modern Russia's bourgeois regime, which is leading the country towards self-destruction?
Now, not in wartime but in peacetime, by those in power, 100 times more people are subjected to death each year, peaceful and patient people, not even against the authorities and their handy thieves oligarchs. Stalin also cleaned the country from the avowed enemies of the people, who traded in our country, hindering the country’s movement forward. Note that the 677 thousand who had been sentenced to death, for a significant portion (about 300 thousand) the death sentence was commuted to various terms of imprisonment or were fully rehabilitated - according to the management reports of the repressive government. (It turns out that during the 30 years, the Stalinist leadership in the country, 10 thousand people were firmly purged).
Stalin created a powerful economy for 30 years. The “men of perestroika" have created nothing, but only destroyed almost everything and are parasitic on what had been built under socialism, or rather on what is left of socialism. Under socialism, we had created a powerful pharmaceutical industry. Where are our sturdy cheap domestic drugs now? We are now forced to buy foreign pharmaceutical counterfeits at high prices. Previously, under socialism, we paid rent at 3.4 rubles a month, but nowadays the salary is not enough to pay for it, and we are evicted by the bailiffs onto the street. So who's the monster? Stalin or the current powers that be? Socialism or capitalism? Previously, young people grew up, being confident in their bright future. Today it is mired in animal sex, drugs, crime. The "men of perestroika" have stolen from the youth all concept of morality, honour, ethics, and its future ...
President Medvedev has taken the utmost personal liberty, by placing himself above such a cunning and intelligent politician as Winston Churchill, the true enemy of the Soviet authorities, but nevertheless gave a very high character reference to Stalin, in contrast to Medvedev in his polluting address of Stalin in a statement on 30.10.2009. Dmitry Medvedev sought to position himself smarter than D.E. Davis – a far-sighted and refined U.S. diplomat who was able to understand the essence of the processes of 1937-1938. The president of Russia himself was unable to do so. Medvedev tried to surpass the mind of an adventurer and clever Hitler, who conquered all of Europe and also understood the essence and purpose of Stalin's purges, which disrupted his blitzkrieg. The president of Russia is not able to understand this. But from clever enemies much can be learned.
By 2020, according to the plans of the West - the best of friends and advisers to the Russian authorities with whom the president of Russia is behaving like a lackey, Russia's population should not exceed 45-50 million people, that is, in 10 years Russia's population must be reduced by 90-100 million people! Is it not a genocide of the Russian people by the country's leaders - President Medvedev following his predecessors, the Presidents of Russia, on the instructions of the West (the U.S., specifically). So who is the real monster? The presidents of Russia (Yeltsin, Putin, Medvedev) or Stalin? Judge a person according to his deeds.
In our view, all together the presidents of Russia are not suited to Stalin – they are too limited, too dependent, too bend towards the West, too quickly and easily change their principles, i.e. too unprincipled. They have forgotten about the people and only think about their new billion-dollar villas, their accounts in foreign banks and the welfare of thieves and oligarchs.
President Medvedev acted very short-sightedly, having rejected the Iskander complexes on his own territory in Kaliningrad, and "swallowed" the deceit by the United States, renouncing the stationary ABM systems, replacing them with a mobile air defence system on ocean warships. Is this the level of thinking of a Supreme Commander? Here the president of Russia Dmitry Medvedev is very far from Stalin.
The current regime is characterized by universal venality and unthinkable corruption in all state structures from top to bottom, which is openly talked of by the friends of the president - the oligarchs at meetings with the leadership of the country. The continued destruction of the army (almost destroyed), the breakdown of defence, the once-advanced science brought to degradation, and the destroyed agriculture, etc. The result of this is a complete dependence on food supplies from the outside (the loss of the country's food). Socialism provided all the people with quality domestic food products. Now we eat something that is not consumed by the WEST, which is dropping onto us harmful products. The authorities are responsible for the amorality of much of society, for the complete lack of protection of citizens against crime and the misery of life, for the collapse of medicine and fees for education, for being unable to buy housing on the earnings (not stolen) money (and there is no work), etc.
In other words: the current state is not fulfilling its basic function - to protect its citizens. Such a state naturally moves to his death, to which has always been sought by the West against Russia. Therefore, those figures of the political processes of 1937-1938 - are like-minded people and friends of the presidents of Russia bent on the collapse of Russia. And because all you, those in power, bursting at the seams, so that together with the opportunistic, media accountable to you, swear at Stalin's Soviet past, quickly burying all the old people, because you are all at the same time with those who are bent on destroying the Russian people, to eradicate it historical memory.
For the "service" in the collapse of the state in the interests of a foreign state in any "democratic" country in the world, organizers and accomplices of this have "life" imprisonment or the death penalty.
People despise the current government and its servants, but is still silent. Beware of this silence ...

SOME FRAGMENTS OF THE BIOGRAPHY AND WORK OF J.V. STALIN
by N.A. Andreeva, General Secretary of the AUCPB
Translated by Kevin Cain, leader of the For Bolshevism-AUCPB group in the UK.
A revolutionary, a Bolshevik, a builder, architect - these are words that characterize the essence of J.V. Stalin’s life.
Under the influence of Russian and Georgian Social Democrats, J.V. Stalin still in the seminary was actively involved in the revolutionary movement. In twenty years he became a professional revolutionary. Pre-revolutionary years for J.V. Stalin – were hard revolutionary work, numerous arrests, exile, escape, and continued return to the main thing in life - the revolutionary struggle. While in exile in Irkutsk region after the first spell in in prison, he learned about the differences between the Bolsheviks and the Mensheviks at the II RSDLP (Russian Social Democratic Labour Party) Congress (July 1903), firmly sided with the Bolsheviks and remained a consistent, staunch Leninist Bolshevik his entire life.
During the first Russian Revolution, 1905-1907, J.V. Stalin, being one of the leading party figures in the Caucasus, conducted extensive organizational and ideological work. In his articles, published in the Bolshevik newspapers and pamphlets, he defended the Leninist ideas about the hegemony of the proletariat, the armed uprising, and spoke out against the opportunist tactics of the Mensheviks and anarchists. In January 1912, at the Prague Conference J.V. Stalin was elected a member of the RSDLP (b) and head of the Russian Bureau of the Central Committee. The work written by J.V. Stalin (the end of 1912 – start of 1913) "Marxism and the national question", was praised by Lenin and made J.V. Stalin a major theorist of the Party on the national question.
After the February bourgeois-democratic revolution of March 12, 1917, J.V. Stalin returned from exile to Petrograd. He was introduced into the Bureau of the Central Committee, and also a member of the editorial board of the newspaper “Pravda”. At VII (April) All-Russia Conference of Bolsheviks, J.V. Stalin supported Lenin's policy of socialist revolution and made a presentation on the national question. In the summer (26.07 - 03.08) of 1917 in Petrograd at the VI congress held illegally RSDLP (b), J.V. Stalin read out a report of the Central Committee of the Party and a report on the political situation. In the summary, J.V. Stalin gave a rebuff to the assertions of the Trotskyists E. Preobrazhensky, Bukharin and others who thought the victory of socialist revolution in Russia is not possible without the victory of a revolution in the West. "It is possible” - said J.V. Stalin –“that Russia will be the country that will lay the path to socialism ... We must abandon the antiquated idea that only Europe can show us the way." The VI RSDLP(b) party Congress adopted the policy of preparing for an armed insurrection.
Stalin was directly involved in preparing an armed uprising under the leadership of Lenin, who was in hiding. On 16 October 1917, at a meeting of the Party Central Committee, the Party Center was elected to direct the uprising led by Stalin. This Party Centre was the core of the Military Revolutionary Committee (set up a little earlier) of the Petrograd Soviet and led virtually all the uprising.
After the victory of the proletarian revolution in Russia, at the II-th All-Russia Congress of Soviets on October 26 (November 8), 1917 J.V. Stalin was elected member and approved by the All People's Commissar for Nationalities. From March 1919, J.V. Stalin was also People's Commissar for Stateof control, later reorganized into the People's Commissariat of the Workers’ Peasants Inspectorate (Rabkrin).
J.V. Stalin's role in securing the victory of the "reds", the Bolsheviks in the Civil War was enormous. The Party and V.I. Lenin sent him to the hardest areas of struggle, and he consistently performed brilliantly the tasks set by the Central Committee. These tasks were in the defense of Tsarina, and the Eastern, Southern and South-western fronts, and the defeat of the White Guard mutinies in the forts at Petrograd.
After the XI Party Congress (March 1922), the plenum of the RCP (B) (Russian Communist Party (Bolshevik) on 3 April 1922, (name of the party changed at the VII Congress, March 1918.) elected J.V. Stalin, as General Secretary of the CC RCP (b). On 30 December 1922, at the I All-Union Congress of Soviets on the proposal of Lenin and Stalin, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics was formed.
After the defeat of the imperialist interventionists, and the end of the Civil War, the construction of socialism which began was carried out under conditions of acute class struggle which did not stop for a minute. The Leninist Party of Bolsheviks under Lenin and after his death under the leadership of Stalin had to wage a fierce struggle with the remnants of the exploiting classes (the bourgeoisie, landlords, kulaks, Whites) defeated by the revolution, and the representative of various anti-party factions and fractions who represented their interests (Trotskyists, Bukharinites, Zinovievists and other "Democratic Centralists", Workers' Opposition, and others), which launched an active struggle against the Party line with the full support of global capital.
The building of socialism, which was carried out in a fortress in the country, from all sides surrounded by a hostile imperialist world, demanded from the leadership of the country, continuing and tireless vigilance and skillful diplomacy, the development of the theoretical propositions of Lenin in a new environment, building a strong defense industry, building armed forces, relying only on upon the strength of the young Soviet state.
The most important thing for the chose of the country and the party of the right course of socialist construction after the death of Lenin was the work of J.V. Stalin “The Foundations of Leninism" (1924), which outlined the basic issues of Leninism, and revealed something new that V.I. Lenin contributed to Marxism. In the fight against the Trotskyites of particular importance was the defence by J.V. Stalin of Lenin's theory of the possibility of victory of socialism, first in one single country, the possibility of victory of socialism in the USSR in conditions of capitalist encirclement. During the difficult ideological struggle against all sorts of deviations on the questions and methods of industrialization, collectivization, the Bolshevik Leninist position prevailed, brilliantly advocated in numerous reports and discussions by J.V. Stalin. His reports at the XV party conference (November 1926) "On the social-democratic deviation in our party” and at the VII extended plenum of the Executive Committee of the Communist International (December 1926) "Once more on the social-democratic deviations in our party, "Industrialization of the country and the Rightist Deviation in the AUCP(b)" (1928) (the name of the RCP (b) was changed to AUCP (b) changed at the XIX Congress in 1925), "On the rightist deviation in the AUCP(b)" (1929), and others played a huge role in uniting the party ranks, to expose Trotskyists, their capitulation to capitalism and their disruptive activities.
It was namely J.V. Stalin who was the creator of the great successes of the Soviet people in the country's industrialization and collectivization of agriculture, building the foundations of a socialist economy in the USSR. In the late 30's, in the tense international situation, the country continued to develop its economic potential and strengthen defenses. In 1936, the Soviet Union came in first place in the world for the production of combine harvesters and the collection of sugar beet, into second place - on the total production in the third - in steel smelting and production of superphosphate, and the fourth - in coal mining. According to the U.S. ambassador to the USSR (period 1936-1937). Davis, carefully examining the situation in the USSR, "the Russians managed to do for 7 years as much as America for 40 from the 80-s of the last century".
With a good feeling and understanding of the international situation, Stalin the USSR was intensively preparing for the inevitable coming war with Nazi Germany. One of the overriding issues was the strengthening of the rear of the country, stripping the country of "fifth column". Asked about the 5-th column before the war Davis replied that "there is no 5th column in the USSR anymore... The purges restored order to the country and freed it from traitors. Here should be highlighted, albeit briefly, the question of the so-called "Stalin's repressions," which nowadays our cosmopolitinised "democrats", "memorialists”, Zionistic media inflate by tens of times and are scam fiction angry anti-Soviets, freely juggling with the numbers, adding tons of zeros using a lie invented by them as a "slaughter" with compromising evidence against Stalin.
Opposition in the Soviet Union had a diverse nature, but almost all of its branches had one aim - the elimination of the country's leadership, the dismemberment of the USSR and subordination of the country to the West. Since the fight against the Soviet Union headed by J.V. Stalin, the opposition was ready to trade openly the national sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of the USSR, so the historical dispute could be resolved only on the principle of "either – or”. No other in specific historical circumstances were given. Note that before 1945 and after, the main task of the West was not simply the destruction of the USSR, but the destruction of its ideological base - Bolshevism, first and foremost. It is namely in Bolshevism that the West saw and now sees the essence of its main ideological geopolitical enemy. In all its secret decisions to destroy the Soviet Union in the first half of the twentieth century the West operated by the term "Bolshevism", and, putting it in purely geopolitical terms, had decided - "Bolshevism must be destroyed." The slogan was put on the agenda by the ideologist of Gorbachev's counterrevolution Yakovlev, and still is the principal activity of international organizations of imperialism today. For example such as PACE (Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe) (one of the recent resolutions of the PACE - from 06/07/2009 equated Stalinism to Nazism, or equating the same thing - Bolshevism to Nazism, fascism).
The events (the so-called "repression") of 1937-1938 in the Soviet Union were due to the uncompromising and relentless struggle against the subversive anti-state activities of the opposition, mainly Trotskyist. Moreover, the necessity of this struggle and its mercilessless, Stalin warned the opposition even within two years. This was the ruling o the Politburo of the AUCP(b) of 15 May 1935, which, in particular it stated: "To call on all party members and candidates with a private letter on the need to improve Bolshevik vigilance, and ruthlessly expose the enemies of the people and eliminate them." With this, Stalin most openly and explicitly warned all domestic opposition, including, of course, and the generals, in connection with the impending threat of war, he would no longer tolerate any kind of opposition whatsoever.
Stalin proposed that all opposition stop their conspiratorial activities. Stalin had openly warned the generals that he knew well, how they "threatened to overthrow the current leadership, threatening to kill some of the top leadership.” Stalin not only made it clear that, if not all, but much of their plotting came to his knowledge, he also gave them a real chance - to stop their conspiratorial, subversive activities. And Stalin did it, they say, "with an open visor”. Opposition leaders, including generals, were perfectly aware of that ruling by the Politburo of the AUCP(b), but ignored the warning of Joseph Stalin. By the way, this was not the first time Stalin pre-warned the opposition. Even during the first "war alert" in 1927, he likewise set the goal: "... to strengthen the rear, it is necessary to curb the opposition."
In 1936 – 1937, the opposition went to redouble their subversive activity. Davis, who was present at all court proceedings in 1937, which were open to all those present, in an article in the newspaper the Sunday Express (November 1941) concluded: "The conspiracy existed and the defendants are guilty."
By November 1941 it became clear that the Nazis invaded the countries in Europe, having all around it fifth columns. German entry into Prague was accompanied by active support of military organizations Henlein, Norwegian (Quisling), Slovakia (Tiso), Belgium (de Grell). Davis, in the same article wrote that a few days after Hitler's attack on the USSR he (Davis) was asked: "What have you to say about members of the fifth column in Russia?" The answer: "They have none, they have been shot. Davis further wrote: "Much of the world believed at the time that the notorious traitors and purge processes of 1935-37 are outrageous examples of barbarism and ingratitude and a manifestation of hysteria. Now, however, it became apparent that they showed the remarkable vision of Stalin and his close associates. Declaring that the Soviet resistance would have been reduced to zero, if Stalin and his cohorts had not removed the treacherous elements, Davis points out: "... it is such a lesson that other freedom-loving nations should be thoughtful of." Davis, listening to Hitler's speech on shortwave radio on November 3, 1941, noted the rather remarkable admission by Hitler: "The Germans made a serious mistake by misjudging the strength of the Red Army and its degree of readiness.” "For the first time, this man with paranoid self-confidence, writes Davis, has admitted to committing mistakes. However, the main mistake was the decision to invade Russia." Hitler in his speech, not wanting this, outlined the essence of the historical necessity of the trials against the opposition in the Soviet Union that led to the failure of their so well-planned blitzkrieg.
Returning to the processes of 1937-1938, it should be noted that the defendants acted improperly in relation to their own friends and acquaintances, and themselves tried to make it so that the number of defendents grew several times. The defendants persuaded certain people they knew (the so-called “initiation slander of innocent people without any need and without any compulsion on the part of the investigation"), trying in this way to increase the number of defendants and thereby create hysteria in society, with the aim: "the more in prison, the faster an end to repression against the true conspirators." Bukharin's widow, Anna Larina blabbed about it in his memoirs. In an interview with Moskovsky Komsomolets" in 2006, the widow of Marshal Katukov told how this happened in practice. According to her, the inmates returning from interrogation, almost with a sense of accomplishment pronounced: "Today I sent off another seventeen people to prison!". And such statements, almost word for word, can be found in quite a number of published memoirs, of former of political prisoners. Well-known theatrical figure V. Meyerhold, slandered over a hundred people, whom he called, ostensibly, accomplices.
Under the conditions that occurred of a most acute class struggle, the counterintelligence was obliged to check every contact identified by the arrested person. This resulted in increased prosecutions, often because of unfounded denunciation, because of the complexity of the political situation and the confusion of the connecting threads of the accused.
Operating in the country was the so-called "new opposition". Repressed in 1937, the brother of the famous artist Boris Yefimov - Koltsov (Friedland) at one of the interrogations explained the plans of the new opposition as follows: "... don’t count on the Trotskyists and Bukharinites, because all these people are doomed along with the ruinous connections with them, but in the country ... there is a new cadre of disaffected people and eager to make contact with Western Europe, young intellectuals ... The new constitution will radically change the climate of political struggle, will make it much easier and legalize it, so it will be safer to achieve our objectives by using parliamentary forms to put pressure on the government . The Peoples Commissariats and whole governmental departments will be overthrown and new ones proposed from the parliamentary rostrum. From this rostrum, we will pursue true freedom in the bourgeois sense of the word, the abolition of the monopoly over foreign trade, the restoration of the concession - that require foreign powers ... ". It seems that other organizations of the opposition were operating in the country.
Myths that “Stalin deliberately initiated the repressions in the Soviet Union in 1936, 1937.", "Stalin intentionally agreed to the illegal repressions in 1937-1938.", "Stalin deliberately created the GULAG as a machine to destroy people" were put into active propaganda turnover after the death of Stalin, personally by Nikita Khrushchev, the partocrat and hidden Trotskyite avid organizer of te repressions. In his libel against Stalin, Khrushchev repeated the hateful fabrications of Trotsky.
Trotsky, when abroad, after his expulsion from the Soviet Union had close contact with the opposition in the Soviet Union, frequently acting as a provocateur, pointed out for the repression individual people close to the Leadership of the country, giving provocative derogatory misinformation about them in his journal which was published entitled “Bulletin of the opposition". Trotsky, according to N. Bukharin, was "the main engine of the opposition." It was namely from him that activity for terror, sabotage, subversion, and dismembering the USSR was carried out.
Modern-day Trotskyists continue to praise Trotsky as the allegedly head of the Great October Socialist Revolution, which is absolutely untrue. Trotsky never was a Bolshevik, only occupying a Menshevik position in the Party Central Committee, having got there by chance (in the summer of 1917.) and seeking only personal authority and unlimited power. To him belongs the thesis: "The forest is cut – the chips fly", has always characterized the handwriting of Trotsky himself, who called for terror and organized it everywhere.
Opposition to Stalin and the Politburo was in the party itself, not only among careerists, but also because of pollution of the ruling party at the expense of counter-revolutionary elements, including such phenomena as "self-dekulakization”. The children of kulaks (middle peasant-farmers) were leaving the village, changed the family name, got jobs in factories and did everything they could to gain the credibility of a revolutionary, and climbing the corporate or the party ladder, began to their subversive activity against the Soviet country.
This part of the party apparatus was most relevant to the conducting of forced collectivization in perverted form, the search for harmers and saboteurs, the use of extremely harsh measures during grain production, the persecution of the opposition and the ministers of religion and the destruction of the Russian intelligentsia. It is they, directly or indirectly, together with their assistants who are guilty of violating the law and grew up on this in their party and official status. All these figures were also active Trotskyists and members of opposition groups who tried to blow up the country from the inside, cause a dull dissatisfaction with the policies pursued by the Bolshevik Party. The most typical representatives of this group were Khrushchev, Postnikov, Rudzutak, Stetskii, Yakovlev (Epstein), Goloshchekin, Vareikis, Sheboldayev, Eiche, etc.
Khrushchev and Eiche (first secretary of the West Siberian region) out of the number of Party apparatchiks were at the forefront of attacks on Stalin, and, in general, the Politburo. Note that in his youth Khrushchev was a Trotskyite, worked as secretary of one of party cells in the Donbass, in 1923-1924, and supported the Trotskyists in their struggle against the Party Central Committee, headed by Stalin. In 1925, Khrushchev "realized his mistake” and with the support of L.M. Kaganovich, gained access to big politics. (Since 1924, Khrushchev was occupied in party work in the Donbass and Kiev. From 1931, he was Secretary of the Baumansky, Krasnopresnensky district Party committee in Moscow. In 1932-1934, he was Second Secretary of the Moscow State Committee of the Party, 1934-1935, First Secretary and Second Secretary of the MSC of the Moscow Party Committee, 1935-1938, the first secretary of the MC and the MSC of the party. In 1938 - March 1947 and December 1947-1949, he was the first secretary of the CC of the Communist Party (Bolsheviks) of Ukraine, etc.).
Eiche, when questioned about the organization of trials of the, "three", on 10 October 1934, Stalin replied: "I can not understand what was happening. If you can, better to do without the three, but the sentences can be argued in the usual order." That is to say in court! If the court finds the sentence appropriate.
But the party apparatchiks enthusiastically took up the case. Khrushchev suspiciously quickly found in the Moscow region 41305 "ex-kulaks" and "criminals", of which he demanded 8.5 thousand be sentenced to death, and 32805 people - to exile. Eiche demanded the sentencing to death by shooting of 10.8 thousand people, and did not indicate the number designated for exile, reserving the right to decide that for himself. (Not surprisingly, the first in the list of rehabilitated by Khrushchev after the Twentieth Party Congress, was Robert Indrikovich Eiche). According to the “commission on the rehabilitations” by Yakovleva during the period beginning of" perestroika", Khrushchev personally designated 161,860 people as "enemies of the people” on the lists submitted to them. Of these, 55,741 persons during the period 1936-1937 when Khrushchev was first secretary of the Moscow State Committee and regional party committee, and 106,119 people during his work in Ukraine. Not unimportant to note is that the lists of "enemies" were mainly specialists. They, as a rule, were not ordinary workers.
Stalin, getting lists of "enemies of the people" from Khrushchev replied - "Calm down, Nikita", and demanded a detailed justification to bring to justice the individuals from the list and a sharp reduction in the number involved.
Concerning the rehabilitation of convicts, it should be noted that it was Stalin who was the initiator of so many pardons, including the replacement of capital punishment – execution by firing squad – to more lenient sentences. It is a known fact that Stalin replaced death sentences to ten years of prison term of the five main suspects of the huge trial of the Industrial Party (1926-1930). Moreover, one of the main defendants in the case - Russia's outstanding technique engineer L.K. Ramzin while in detention in particularly improved conditions for "behind barbed wire" was brought into design work. In 1943, he received the most prestigious in those days, Stalin Prize, was awarded the Order of Lenin and Red Banner of Labor, was elected as a corresponding member of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR. There are many such examples.
The political thuggery of Yakovlev’s Commission during the Gorbachev rule, the blanket rehabilitation of all the real enemies of the people and all criminals - from smugglers and Basmachis to spies and saboteurs, etc. - has nothing to do with a thorough examination of the events of those years, but only commodity manipulation and political triumph of angry anti-communists who had triumphed in the Soviet counter-revolution in collusion with the West. This applies to the rehabilitation of "martyrs" who were shot (or maybe not?) in the early period of Soviet power under Lenin, and the current rehabilitation of Kolchak, and the other odious rehabilitation of real enemies of the people.
It should be noted also that the ranks of the Cheka of the NKVD in the 1930-s were very polluted (more than 70%), by "Communist-internationalists" who acted with particular zeal. Thus, deservedly, they ultimately were often repressed. The lunacy of the anti-Stalinist opposition often stemmed from the fact that the "Communist internationalists" were openly replaced by Russians. Survivors at the time from the opposition, even decades later made no secret that their entire zoological anger at Stalin emanated from the fact - that since the mid 30-s "people with Russian names were chosen for government." Incidentally, not only for government. (Nowadays, a Russian passports the "nationality" of the passport holder has been removed, presumably to disguise the nationality of the modern internationalists).
Stalin attempted to minimize the practice of unfounded accusations and false accusations of ordinary citizens, particularly professionals, even with less than a perfect party history. However, in situations where Stalin and his supporters could scarcely hold back the onslaught of repression demanded by the party nomenklatura, like Khrushchev and Eiche, at the same time, the elimination of the top military conspiracy led by Tukhachevsky, as well as a clean-up in the ranks of the NKVD was still taking place. Perhaps in other circumstances, in other circumstances the decision of Stalin would have been quite different, but the information coming before him indicated that a delay in purging of the "fifth column" in the Soviet Union would have been an unforgivable mistake ...
On August 22, 1938, Beria was appointed as first deputy of the People's Commissar of Internal Affairs. On 29/09/1938 concurrently, he was appointed Chief of the General Directorate of State Security of the NKVD of the USSR. From 25/11/1938 - People's Commissar of Internal Affairs of the USSR. With the arrival of L.P. Beria to the Lubyanka, the scale of repression fell sharply (10 times) with respect to military personnel - more than 61 times compared with the peak of the officers' arrests in 1937 (from 4474 up to 73 people). The execution of previously issued death sentences was immediately banned. Cases of those arrested en masse were sent for review and investigation. During 1939 and 3 months in 1940, Beria helped release 381,178 people, and the beginning of the war - is about 130 thousand people, not to mention the tens of thousands of rehabilitated. The party nomenklatura continuosly wrote denunciations of Beria to Stalin. However, the absolute legitimacy of Beria was twice confirmed by the then acting authoritative party-state commissions.
L.P. Beria brought everything into line according to the laws of that time.
L.P. Beria was murdered by the party nomemklatura shortly after the murder of Stalin, in the summer of 1953.
Errors made in 1937-1938 by the NKVD and the Prosecutor were analyzed at the January plenum of the Central Committee of the AUCP(b) in 1938. The decree of the Council of People's Commissars of the USSR and the Central Committee of the AUCP(b) of 17 November 1938, were instructed "address the deficiencies noted in the organs of the NKVD and the Prosecutor and the exceptional importance to the organization of all investigative and prosecutorial work in new ways." Employees of these structures were warned that "for the slightest violation of Soviet laws and directives of the Party and the Government each employee, regardless of the person who will be subjected to severe justice."
In 1938, after checking the validity of the charges, about 300 thousand prisoners was released from GULAGs (prior to L.P. Beria working at the Lubyanka). Their place was taken by those who had been convicted of violating the law. The head of the NKVD N.I. Ezhov was arrested on 10 June 1939. The Military Collegium of the USSR Supreme Court on 3 February 1940 sentenced him to death "for repressions against the Soviet people" and executed on February 4 1940.
Despite the magnitude of the unfolded Yezhov campaign, people were NOT convicted in the tens of millions, like the "democrats" lampooners now scream. Andrew Rayzfeld writes in the newspaper "Sovyetskaya Rossiya", based on the published "Memorial" (!) fundamental reference: "The system of labor camps in the Soviet Union, in 1923-1960", M., 1998 - "DURING ALL the reign of Stalin, the number of prisoners whilst in areas of deprivation of liberty never exceeded 2 million 760 thousand.
Notorious anti-Soviets Polikarpov and Adamovich said at the time that Stalin just from 1935 to 1940 alone, killed 18 million Soviet citizens, i.e. one in eleven of the 194 million people then living in the USSR. Roy Medvedev, "clarified" this figure to 38-40 million, Antonov-Ovseyenko already brought it up to 60 million. Western Sovietologists Conquest and Cohen "modestly" lowered that figure to 20 million repressed. Our "democrats" are not satisfied wth that, and feel that’s not enough, and they once again brought this figure to 80 and then to 107 million people. Television across the country announced the figure - 130 million. The "Great Writer" of democratic Russia, Solzhenitsyn, who wrote during the war about himself to his superiors about his defeatist attitude, to avoid involvement in combat on the front lines, and because he was captured (he was "repressed," as he termed it), an informer on the cons in the camp because Solzhenitsyn, relatively at ease alive and who concocted the spoof "Gulag Archipelago", the drafts of which (according to former U.S. ambassador in Moscow, Mr. Bill - a prominent CIA operative) "were edited by dozens of experienced and talented editors of the CIA and taken from the status of schizophrenic delusions until ready to print.” Solzhenitsyn was stopped at the figure of "victims of repression" at 66.7 million people. This figure is still exaggerated by the press and television in Russia. The press noted that all the information of Solzhenitsyn about "reforms" are given by the author not from eyewitnesses, but "by transfer of other persons", in other words – I will say what I want. The utterly mendacious book gives an idea not of "repressions" but about the pathological anti-Sovietism and anti-communism of Solzhenitsyn.
In fact, in the period from 1921 to February 1, 1954, there were 3,777,380 people, of whom 2.9 million (76.7%) - non-judicial bodies convicted of counterrevolutionary crimes under Article. 58 of the RSFSR Criminal Code and similar articles of the penal codes of the union republics. From 1921 to early 1954 for political reasons, 642,980 people were sentenced to death, 2,369,220 imprisoned and – 765180 exiled. Note that not all sentences are carried out. In the period 1934 – 1940, many of the death sentences were replaced by imprisonment. From 1921 to 1954 were shot not 642 980 people, but about 300 thousand, by a decision of the Plenum of the Central Committee of the CPSU (B) (January 1938) after checking the litigation, more than 25% of the convicted or under investigation were fully rehabilitated. These data on Feb. 1, 1954 were officially reported to Khrushchev by Prosecutor General of the USSR R. Rudenko, Minister of Internal Affairs of the USSR, S. Kruglov, and Minister of Justice of the USSR K. Gorshenin. Considering that at the time of submission of these data, almost a year had passed after Stalin's death, but conviction under Art. 58 of the Criminal Code was still continuing, from the above figures must be subtracted from this total number convicted of counterrevolutionary crimes the average number of convicts amounting to 114,466 people during the period, because these 114,466 people were personally Khrushchev’s "share". Also must be deducted even those convicted under V.I. Lenin. According to various sources the number ranges from 47 thousand to 114 thousand people. It should be noted also that in terms of legislation and judicial practice from 1936 – 1946, criminals made up 80-88% of the total number of prisoners, and the share of "political" prisoners in different years amounted from 12 to 20% of prisoners in places of deprivation of liberty. (In modern criminal code "counter-revolutionary" crimes of those years are now classified as criminal).
The actions of the authorities against the conspiracy of the generals (Tukhachevskogo and others), against the Trotskyists were substantiated, their guilt was proven in open court sessions with the presence of Soviet and foreign press. Evidence of the crimes carried out by the repressed generals is contained in their personal legal cases and no one has yet officially to this day refuted them.
Tracking down and bringing to justice of spies, saboteurs, landed in the USSR foreign intelligence agents for espionage and sabotage, is necessary protection of the state. In the period from 1921 (then the RSFSR) until 22 June 1941 alone, the number of violators – spies detained, that landed on Soviet territory by foreign intelligence agents for espionage and sabotage amounted to more than 932 thousand people (almost 10 armies). In addition, during the same period, more than 30 thousand spies, saboteurs and terrorists, more than 40 thousand armed bandits, formed out of 1319 abolished armed gangs were detained. The total - 1 million people. In the Soviet Union until 1941, this contingent was neutralized. May they be considered unreasonably "repressed"? - NO! All states do the same. For example: the president of the "the most democratic in the world" USA, Roosevelt in 1941,after Pearl Harbor, exiled 400 thousand Japanese-Americans simply because they had Japanese ... eyes, not to a new place of temporary residence, but to concentration camps, where their numbers declined sharply. In the UK, 150 thousand people without charge or trial were sent to death camps with very poor conditions, because the authorities viewed them as "suspicious".
In the early postwar years in the Soviet Union, traitors like Vlasov and various other collaborators of the fascist occupiers, agents of the Gestapo, etc were very harshly dealt with. Naturally, the active struggle against armed gangs, including those left by the Nazis, but defected to the service of the U.S. and British intelligence continued. The latter gangs of various "forest brothers" in the Baltics and western Ukraine were dismantled in the late 50's of the last century. So, to be completely objective, from the number of people convicted of counterrevolutionary crimes under Art. 58 of the Criminal Code during the period of Stalin in power, we must subtract at least another one million people. With these types of violators of criminal law in any country in the world no country stands on ceremony, otherwise there is no sovereignty, territorial integrity or inviolability of borders. (For the period 1941-1945 war and after, until March 1953, the number convicted for counter-revolutionary and extremely dangerous crimes against the state amounted to 559,909 people and 379,823 people respectively.)
Were there errors in cases of arrested under Stalin? Yes, there were and they were caused by the following factors:
1. The NKVD was clogged with Trotskyist elements, deliberately carrying out the false arrests to discredit the party and its senior leadership.
2. Excessive zeal of some party careerists and repainted Trotskyists who tried to make a career out of the repressions.
3. Often, lack of professional qualifications of investigators.
From "luxury" of sitting about today making judgments of that period, it is easy to judge, besides engaging in the falsification of data, not taking into account all the circumstances of this vast intricate tangle of interrelated events and facts of the time when decisions were made, which were often simply impossible to determine who is his one of his own, and who is not. But one thing is clear, that without those purges of 1937-1938, it is unlikely that we would have victored in the Great Patriotic War, and then there would have been noone now who would condemn Stalin for his hellish work for the good of the Fatherland and shed crocodile tears over fake commemorative stones of a "memorial”. The current prosecutors would simply not have been born because the ashes of their parents would have been flown out of the pipe through the Nazi crematoria ... Note that in modern "democratic" Russia, with a population of 142 million people, just as a result of criminality, each year up to 100 thousand people die and 70 thousand more disappear without trace. Every year, Russia's population decreases due to the rule of the "democrats" by 1 million people. Why are the democrats not screaming about today's repression, that are many times greater than the numbers in the period of Stalin's rule? ….
In March 1939, the XVIII Congress of the AUCP(b) was held. In the report of the Party Central Committee at the Congress, J.V. Stalin set out the program developed by the Central Committee of the struggle of the party and the Soviet people for completion of building a socialist society, with a gradual transition from socialism to communism. In his report, Stalin said: "It is a fact that in terms of production techniques, in terms of saturation volume of industrial production of new technology, our industry occupies first place in the world ... What we are lagging behind? We are still lagging behind in economic terms, i.e. the size of our industrial production per capita. Speaking about the tasks of the Party's internal policy, Stalin set the task: "To expand on the rise of industry, growth of productivity, improved production techniques, so that after having already surpassed the main capitalist countries in the field of technology production and growth industry - to overtake them economically over the next 10-15 years.”
In 1938 and in subsequent years, in the country there was simultaneously an intense preparation to repel an imminent attack on the USSR, by Nazi Germany. According to the same Davis, - “the USSR alone in 1938 had planned to spend on defense 10 times more (in terms of gold) than the French in 3 years”, and that " ... in case Germany attacked the USSR, the world will be surprised at the size of the resistance, which Russia will impart.”
On May 6, 1941 J.V. Stalin became Chairman of the Soviet o People's Commissars of the USSR. At the beginning of the Great Patriotic War of the Soviet Union, J.V. Stalin was appointed Chairman of the State Defense Committee, People's Commissar of Defense, Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces of the USSR and remained in these positions until the victorious end of the war.
The great victory over the Hitler coalition was won by the Soviet people under the leadership of the AUCP(b) and its Central Committee, headed by J.V. Stalin. During the war, J.V. Stalin as head of the Soviet Government participated in the conferences of heads of the three powers - the USSR, the USA and Britian in Tehran (October 1943), in Yalta (February 1945) and Berlin (Potsdam, July-August 1945). During the war, J.V. Stalin corresponded daily with the U.S. president and prime minister of Britain, in which he consistently defended the national interests of the peoples of the countries affected by Nazi aggression.
The Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945 ended with a brilliant victory of the Soviet people over fascist Germany and brought home to the world the advantages of the socialist system over the bourgeois, imperialist system. The fundamental factors in the victory of the Soviet people in the Great Patriotic War over the Nazi invaders were:
- The superiority of the Soviet state system (the dictatorship of the proletariat), providing democracy for the vast majority of working people over the bourgeois state system (the dictatorship of the bourgeoisie), with its stripped-down democracy of the minority, democracy of the money-bag;
- Advantages of the socialist planned economy, which gives priority to the working man with his needs and demands over a capitalist economy, with its unrestrained pursuit of maximizing profits and super profits, based on the ruthless exploitation of workers of their own country and indigenous peoples;
- The superiority of the socialist proletarian humanistic ideology and culture over bourgeois ideology and culture, with its cult of power, money, and unshared profits;
- Friendship and brotherhood among the peoples of the USSR, which were further strengthened and cemented during the war;
- The unity of the front and rear, and an unprecedented feat of workers labor at factories and collective farms;
- The superiority of Soviet military science over the vaunted bourgeois Prussian military school and the outstanding talent of Soviet commanders.
The decisive factor of the Great Victory was the leading role of Lenin's Bolshevik Party, headed by Stalin. The Leninist party and its leader Comrade J.V. Stalin were connected with the people by indissoluble bonds. "For the Motherland, for Stalin!", "Communists - forward!" - These were the slogans of the Great Patriotic War, which battalions rose to the attack, as well as boundless loyalty to the Soviet people, the cause of Lenin and Stalin, the Bolshevik Party and the ideals of socialism and communism, and heroism at the front and rear.
In the postwar period under the leadership of Stalin, the Soviet Union was the first to abolish the ration card system and by early the 1950-ies in the country’s pre-war economic potential was restored. The country ravaged by war continued the path of building socialism. The creation of an atomic bomb on the orders of Stalin led by Beria (the first test conducted on August 29 1949) made the USSR a world nuclear power.
After the Second World War, with the a growing prestige of the Soviet Union and its leader – Stalin, the formation began of People's Democracy in the countries of Eastern Europe liberated by the Soviet army. On 1st February 1949 work began, created at the initiative of Stalin, on the Council for Mutual Economic Assistance (CMEA) as a body coordinating the economic activities of the socialist camp (or - globalization on socialist principles). It was proletarian internationalism in action!
When at full height, before the party and the proletarian state faced the task of the gradual transition from socialism to building a communist society, the answers to questions about how this transition who proceed was given in the outstanding works by J.V. Stalin entitled “Economic Problems of Socialism in the USSR "(1952)," Marxism and Problems of Linguistics” (1950).
Stalin had lived a bright, very hard life. A poor childhood in a family of a poor cobbler. A decade of violent revolutionary struggle - arrests, exile, escape. And at the same time everyday studying hard, working on himself, a student of an Orthodox seminary turned into a person, to whom the descendant of the British dukes stood up and saluted. All who encountered him were amazed at his memory, his knowledge, his ability to immediately identify the essence of the situation. The iron-hard will-power of Stalin saved the Soviet country in a dire situation at the beginning of the Great Patriotic War and led the Soviet people to the world-historic victory of 1945. The personal modesty of Stalin was a shining example for every Soviet Communist - Bolshevik, for every Soviet citizen.
Happiness of the Soviet people was the fact that for three decades at the head of the party and the state stood Joseph Stalin. He brought people to the sun and the light from out of the oppressive darkness. For that he has our profound gratitude and our low bow to the ground.
GLORY TO GREAT STALIN!

GENERAL STRIKE IN IRELAND INVOLVED 250 THOUSAND PEOPLE

As the site www.novopol.ru., reports, in Ireland on November 25, a general strike took place. It was attended by 250 thousand people, NTV reports (one of the central television stations of Russia). Officials, health workers and teachers were protesting against government plans to reduce the cost of salaries to state employees by 1,3 billion euros next year. Participants of the strike say they can not agree on a new reduction of their salaries after the transition to the anti-crisis budget, the newspaper notes K2Kapital with reference to BBC News.
Despite the ban, police also went on strike (by contract they have no right to participate in such actions). The guardians of order, in protest, decided not to penalize violators of traffic rules.
We, the All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks (AUCPB) welcome the courageous struggle of the Irish workers for their social rights against the bourgeoisie, which seeks not only to cover their expenses during the world crisis at the expense of workers, but also to obtain additional profits by stealing from employees. The current crisis was created artificially by the bourgeoisie itself and they have used it to increase their profits at the expense of workers forced to intensify their work, not only without having to raise wages, but also to directly reduce them.
The handwriting of imperialism throughout the world is the same. In Russia, Ukraine and other republics of the Soviet Union, the nouveau riche fabulously rich at the expense of stealing government financial injections in the production and assignment (theft) of unpaid salaries of workers. In Russia, in most regions the workers do not receive salaries for several months in a row and at individual enterprises - more than six months. There is an artificial bankruptcy of enterprises and workers are thrown into the street. Their families are left without any means of livelihood.
WE, the All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks, fully support your just struggle for your social rights, dear Irish workers.
There must be unity in actions of all workers in the world in the fight for their rights.
Hang on strong, our brothers and sisters! We are with you!
Long live proletarian internationalism!
Down with the power of capital! The benefits on Earth should belong to those who have created them!
