Transcript and armed intervention from outside forms the history of the •development of Menshevist Social Democracy in the period between 1924-1930. The organisation of the above mentioned " All Union Bureau " of the Central Committee of the Mensheviks, which went over from methods of political agitation to methods of sabotage and preparations for foreign intervention, was the turning point of this evolution. Ikov, a member of the Social Democratic Party since 1901, who never broke with the party of the Menshevists, who maintained immediate contact with the Menshevist centre abroad (Dan, Abramovitch and Garvy) and with the " All-Union Bureau," who has been an active functionary of the counterrevolutionary organisation and is one of the defendants in the trial of the Mensheviks—makes the following statement with regard to the leading factors determining this evolution, and to the basic forms and methods of counter-revolutionary Menshevist activities during this period :— " I spent the years 1924-1928 in banishment in the Urals and at Tula; at the beginning of 1928 the amnesty enabled me to return to Moscow.

The connection between these legal and illegal Mensheviks "was, however, by no means so harmless as might appear at first.
