Transcript v and the fact that they had become thoroughly habituated to pre-revolutionary methods of work, would not permit these people to reconcile themselves to the existence of the soviet regime. A complicated combination of diverse motives prompted them to fight for the restoration of capitalism, and they fought by those methods which were facilitated by their special technical knowledge, namely, sabotage and the endeavour to prevent the industrialisation of the country. The guiding nucleus of the organisation was fully conscious of the fact that in order to swell their ranks, by winning over engineers of more modest position and the young engineers, it was necessary to carry on preliminary propaganda of an anti-soviet character among the engineers ; to destroy their confidence in socialist construction, to make use of the esprit de corps, of the scientific authority and the influential positions of the leaders of the sabotage, and so on.

The capitalist world lost all hope of overthrowing the soviet government by means of armed force. At the same time 7
