However, in practice, the Menshevist organisation decided : " Not to announce its real position and not to work in the name of the Menshevist organisation. This is the explanation of the fact that Sukhanov published his proclamation in the name of an anonymous group," declared Gromann. The recognition of their weakness and their total lack of any connection with the masses did not prevent the Mensheviks from concentrating the main weight of their counterrevolutionary activity on the sabotage work which seemed to them to be the most suitable method of work, as they themselves have frankly admitted.
