Transcript serious and real counter-revolutionary force in the Soviet Union. M With regard to intervention, Braunstein declared that he was a member of the Left-wing of the foreign delegation and that for a long time he had been opposed to intervention, so long in fact as he had not finally convinced himself that the red imperialism of the Soviet Union was more dangerous to the interests of international Socialism than any possible complications which might arise out of intervention by Great Britain and France against the Soviet Union. . . . " On the other hand, Braunstein persistently drew my attention to the fact that even in the case of joint work with the ' Party of the Working Peasants,' and even in case of a positive solution in the question of the intervention, the ' All-Union Bureau ' would commit a great mistake if it completely ignored the work amongst the masses of the workers. The new principles of Menshevism did not exclude propaganda and agitation among the working class, and this could be seen clearly from the activity of the foreign delegation. " Braunstein pointed out that he was to take part as the representative of the foreign delegation in the activity of the ' All-Union Bureau ' as a member with equal rights in order to accelerate this part of the work of the ' All-Union Bureau,' to utilise his old connections with the working class, which had not yet been dealt with, and to establish connections between the ' All-Union Bureau ' and the Mensheviks in exile, in order in this fashion to build a bridge from the old Menshevism to the new." In this fashion the foreign delegation of the R.S.D.L.P. supported and directed the " All-Union Bureau " of the Mensheviks in the Soviet Union by direct personal journeys to the Soviet Union, by oral and written instructions, and finally by financial support, until quite recently. Further, the close connection between the two organisations can be seen from a series of documentary evidences which are now in the hands of the judge conducting the inquiry. Amongst these are : (a) The correspondence found during the search of Ikov's rooms which refers to the connections between the foreign centre and members of the " All-Union Bureau "; (b) The direct collaboration admitted by the accused in the " Socialist Messenger " with regard to the sabotage work in general and the trial of the members of the Industrial Party in particular; 79
