Transcript SABOTAGE WORK IN THE GOSPLAN.* The leading member of the All-Union Bureau, the accused1 Gromann, was the organiser and leader of sabotage group in the Gosplan. The following statement made by Gromann gives a characteristic description of the methods of sabotage work put into operation in the Gosplan : " The sabotage work of the Mensheviks in the Gosplan of the Soviet Union with regard to the control of the economic situation and the perspectives in its latter stage dating from 1928 was carried out by myself (Gromann), Bassarov, and also by those former Mensheviks who were allied with us : Selinger, Gutchmann, Shub, Pistrak, Brotmann and Vishnevsky, who was not a member of any party. These persons formed a counter-revolutionary sabotage group in the Gosplan of the Soviet Union. The counter-revolutionary group, led by Bassarov and I, began in 1928 to carry out the instructions given by the foreign centre of the R.S.D.L.P. for the new sabotage tactics, and by the All-Union Bureau of the Central Committee of the R.S.D.L.P., which was formed within the Soviet Union. Our work consisted in the following : In carrying through control figures and reports on the economic situation with plan constructions in opposition to the general line of the Communist Party, and obviously distorted economic appraisals (distortion of the tempo of Socialist construction, distortion of the class line, exaggeration of the difficulties, under-estimation of the existing resources); in announcing signs of a coming economic catastrophe (Gromann), or, similarly, in the announcement that the chances for carrying out the Party line and the development of the Socialist offensive were small (Bassarov and Gutchmann); in working out the perspective plans placing the genetic standpoint before the teleological standpoint (Gromann) or equalising them (Bassarov), instead of stressing the active aim of Socialist transformation in the historically given environment; in such a treatment of those agricultural problems which are regarded as the weak spots of the economic system that the basis for the two year plan with an agricultural deviation was given, which in essence was in contradiction to the plans of Socialist transformation of the productive relations in the Soviet Union." (Statement of December 31st, 1930.) Gromann declared further : " Since 1928, I and my croup, Selinger, Gutchmann, Brotmann, Shub, Pistrak (a former Menshevik with whom * Gosplan.—State Planning Commission. 62
