Transcript versations and in this speech, Abramovitch made perfectly clear the attitude adopted by the foreign delegation of the R.S.D.L.P. in all fundamental questions of the activity and tactics of the R.S.D.L.P. As Abramovitch pointed out, the chief basis of the activity and the tactics of the ' All-Union Bureau ' in the future was to be the work for the overthrow of the Soviet power. The fact that the attitude of the C.P.S.U. had now become absolutely clear in all questions concerning the economic and social constructive work in the Soviet Union, had caused the foreign delegation to come to the conclusion that on the field of the struggle for Socialism there could be no conciliation between the Social Democratic methods for the transformation of capitalist society and the policy of the C.P.S.U., and that only the destruction of the bulwark of international Communism in the shape of the C.P.S.U. and the Soviet power could save the international Social Democratic movement from bankruptcy and the final loss of its influence on the working masses.

The second basis of the struggle against the Soviet power was military intervention, declared Abramovitch. The foreign delegation of the R.S.D.L.P. was of the opinion that intervention must be supported as the only serious and practical weapon for the overthrow of the Soviet power. In view of this fundamental importance of intervention, the economic sabotage work—apart from its direct aim of disorganising the Soviet economic system—should also serve as a preparatory stage for the creation of favourable economic conditions in the Soviet Union for the carrying out of intervention. Abramovitch further declared that this attitude of the foreign delegation of the R.S.D.L.P. was not based solely on its own estimation of the situation in the Soviet Union, but that this standpoint was shared by the Ilnd International and by the most important Social Dempcratic Parties in Western Europe, and in particular by the leading organs of the Social Democratic Party in Germany. Of course, in the future also the Ilnd International and the S.D.P. of Germany would have to maintain officially their negative attitude to the intervention on account of a series of international and inner- party considerations (the opposition of the masses of the workers to intervention), but fundamentally their 76
