Transcript steps to make a complete change in the technical basis of agriculture. I should add that this year the assembling shop of the motor works being built in Nizhni Novgorod has begun operations. As a result, we shall this summer have already two or three thousand motors of soviet construction in the country districts. This is an example of how before one's eyes the radical reconstruction of living conditions in the country is taking place. The collectivisation of millions of peasant farms produces a radical change in the development of class relations in the villages. It is drawing more and more of the poor and middle peasantry into its scope. In the areas of wholesale collectivisation, this inevitably leads to the expropriation of the kulaks. The Central Committee resolution on January 5th pointed out that now "we have the material basis for replacing large-scale kulak production by large-scale collective production . . . not to speak of the soviet farms." Hence the Party was bound to review its attitude to the kulaks. The Party, in its resolution of January 5th, declared that it was necessary "to proceed in practice from the policy of limitation of the exploiting tendencies of the kulaks to the policy of liquidating the kulaks as a class." It is with the watchword of "liquidating the kulaks as a class" that the Party is now advancing its work in the villages, and rallying around this watchword very wide masses of the peasantry in a determined struggle against the kulaks. In view of the great differences in economic development existing between the various areas of the U.S.S.R., and also the totally different conditions under which agriculture has to develop, e.g., the central districts as compared with the soviet republics in the East, the Party's policy with regard to the kulaks cannot be applied without the necessary careful consideration of the peculiarities in the more backward districts. In the majority of the national republics in the East, our problem at the moment is to take the necessary preliminary steps through the co-operatives, Soviets and Party organisations in the villages with the object of effecting the mass collectivisation of the peasant farms at some time in the future. The main task here is constantly to apply and enforce those limitations on the activities of the kulaks which arise out of the very foundations of communist and soviet policy. Hasty collectivisation in these districts imperils our contact with the masses, and is therefore not to be thought of for a moment. To fail to reckon with the peculiarities of the backward districts means to ignore one of the main principles of Leninist policy. Mass collectivisation has fundamentally altered the productive basis of agriculture. Together with the development of the soviet farms, it means that socialist agriculture is growing up side by l7
