Transcript an illegal organisation and an incompletely formed broad ' legal cloak,' which rendered the illegal organisation a certain not inconsiderable service. As I became better acquainted with life in Moscow and got to know the position, I realised that this ' legal cloak ' played a muoii gieater and more important part, that its sphere of activity was immeasurably greater, its aims more profound and far- reaching than those of the ' illegal ' elements, and that its path diverged most decidedly from that of the latter. The penetration into Soviet institutions involved the task of controlling important economic centres in the country and of influencing their activities in the direction of the plans of this ' legal cloak.' " With respect to the leading personages, Gromann, Ginsburg, Stern, Sokolovsky, Sukhanov .... these were surrounded by whole groups of persons sharing their standpoint, groups not actually members of the organisation, but whose work and political attitude were such that they were under the influence of these persons and carried out tlieir directions. ..." (Ikov's statement, February 18th, 1931.) At this time, this group of legal Soviet workers, adherents of the Mensheviks maintained direct contact with the centre abroad. With reference to this, Ikov states :— " The return to Moscow from exile of F. A. Cherevanin in the spring of 1929 (Cherevanin being in close sympathy with the Gromann-Sukhanov group), and especially the consultations and meetings with the representatives of the Central Committee of the R.S.D.L.P., Braunstein- Valerianov, coming from abroad for the party work, brought about an exact and direct connection between ' Abroad,' the illegal organisation of the Mensheviks, and the ' All Union Bureau.' I am, however, unable to say exactly when and where this centre, which was given the name of the ' All Union Bureau,' was formed, as I did not know the precise composition of this bureau (and saw no special necessity to do so) and never took part in its sessions. Oral directives received from Berlin through the agency of Duker suggested that those who did not join the ' All Union Bureau ' personally should at least maintain close contact with it." (Ikov's statement, February 18th, 1931.) This alteration in the external form of organisation was accompanied by a fundamental alteration of the former tactics. Entirely different methods were now employed in place of political propaganda and agitation. 10
