Transcript INDICTMENT INTRODUCTION. THE trial of the Industrial Party revealed to the whole world the actual danger of intervention threatening the Soviet Union and the working class of the whole world. The trial of the Industrial Party exposed at the same time the connections between this counter-revolutionary organisation and other similar counter-revolutionary organisations and the imperialist bourgeoisie in the European countries who have set themselves this same aim of an armed intervention. The Social- Revolutionary group around Chayanov-Kondratiev, representing the class interests of the kulaks, was one of these organisations. Without hanging out any Socialist sign, both these counter-revolutionary groups—the Ramzin and Chayanov-Kondratiev groups—set themselves the task of restoring capitalism by means of a victorious armed attack to be made on the Soviet Union by foreign imperialist armies. The same aim has been pursued by a third counter-revolu- tfonary organisation, the group of the Russian Social-Democratic Mensheviks, under the leadership of the so-called " All Union Bureau " of the Central Committee of the Russian Social Democratic Labour Party (Mensheviks). This counter-revolutionary organisation, consisting of the remnants of one-time Menshevist organisations and of individual Mensheviks taking up political activities again, was finally organised at the beginning of 1928. It renewed the old connections with the Menshevist centre, which had emigrated abroad (the group of Dan, Abramovitch and Garvy), and entered into a similar politico-organisational and material (acceptance of money) bloc with the Industrial Party as did the Chayanov group, but with the difference that it continued to cloak itself with Socialist phrases, and pretended to hold hypocritically aloof from intervention. The common platform of these three counter-revolutionary groups was the following :— (a) Restoration of capitalist conditions in the Soviet Union as the common aim of the counter-revolutionary conspiracy; (b) Acceptance of intervention as the sole and most rapidly effectual means of overthrowing the Soviet power; (e) Sabotage as the chief method of counter-revolutionary work in the Soviet Union; disruptive work in the army; (d) Receipt of material means, in part from one and the same source, the Trade and Industrial Committee;
