Transcript New Statesman and Nation London, England The Moscow Trial The confessions of Zinoviev and Kamenev are too abject and too well staged to be convincing. Trotsky, in exile an increasingly bitter enemy of the Stalin regime, denounces the whole trial as a fraud and denies having engaged in any kind of political activity in Russia. On the face of it the story of the plot to assassinate Stalin and install Trotsky in his place seems, for many reasons, unlikely. Such a plot could have little chance of success; the G. P. U. is extremely efficient as well as ruthless, and Stalin would seem to be more firmly than ever established in the saddle. His policy of "Socialism in one country" as opposed to Trotsky's policy of stirring up revolution in outside states would seem, at least from the Russian point of view, to have been fully justified and is certainly accepted as a success by the mass of Russian citizens. But there is, of course, another side. In any dictatorship there are intrigues, and the murder of Kirov was a reminder that Stalin is not immune from the ordinary risks of dictatorship. Since that murder every element of discontent in Russia has been described as Trotskyism and connected in the minds of the rulers of Russia with the foreign Trotskyist movement which reached considerable proportions in pre-Hitler Germany, is active now in France and the United States, and had a small following—and only a small following—in Spain. But we doubt whether Zinoviev and Kamenev could possibly have been conspiring with those revolutionaries abroad who accept the theories put forward in articles by Trotsky. The real puzzle is why the G. P. U, which has long been preparing this trial, should have been permitted to hold it at the present juncture. A commonly advanced and not impossible reason is that they wished to show their importance and activity before the introduction of the new constitution which may curb their power. August 22, 1936. 16
