Transcript On this point Ikov states :— " The political line of the All Union Bureau, as expressed in its activities during all these years, was directed towards the disorganisation of the national economic life of the country, the destruction and undermining of Socialist reconstruction, and particularly the retardation of the tempo of reconstruction. The other side of these tactics was the orientation towards intervention as the sole possible path to be taken under the existing inner and outer political conditions and, in consideration of the comparative strength of social forces, the orientation towards intervention, which, freeing the country fronrthe dictatorship of the Communist Party, would create simultaneously the possibility and the pre-requisites for the development of the energies of Russian democracy in its struggle for political liberty and for Socialism."

Another of the defendants in this case, Sher, an old Menshevik and leading organiser of the Menshevist group in the U.S.S.R., relates in even greater detail the history of the pre- 11
