Transcript Bureau the organisations which had sprung Up at different times, and also the counter-revolutionary Menshevist groups which were formed by them in the various institutions and People's Commissariats of the Soviet Union. They continued to form such groups whose activity they directed towards the same aim, i.e., the overthrow of the Soviet power; 2. By sending individuals from amongst their ranks on journeys outside the Soviet Union, and by giving instructions to other persons who maintain relations with the Menshevist counter-revolutionary organisations abroad, and with the foreign delegation of the Central Committee of the Russian Social Democratic Labour Party, they agreed with the latter body concerning their activity, received from this body written instructions and financial support, and took part in joint sessions with members of this body who had journeyed illegally to the Soviet Union for counter-revolutionary purposes, namely, with Abramovitch, a member of the C.C. of the foreign Menshevist organisation, with Braunstein and with other persons; 3.

The accused carried on the whole of the counterrevolutionary activity mentioned above in order to create the most favourable conditions possible for an armed intervention against the Soviet Union which they expected to be carried out by the imperialist capitalist States, whereby they co-ordinated their activity with, on the one hand, the Industrial Party and 86
