Transcript groups were operating in the Kuzbas to organize the assassination of visiting representatives of the national government, and tfiat such attempts were actually organized against V. M. Molotov, chairman of the Council of People's Commissars, and L. M. Kaganovich, People's Commissar of Railways. Another carrier of the "Trotsky line" was Livshitz, an old Trotskyite and formerly Vice-Commissar of Railroads. He had been doing his best to wreck the railway system. And in addition—espionage work for the Japanese intelligence service. He turned over information of great military value to the Japanese agents through Kniazev, another of the accused on trial. And Kniazov was the active link between the Trotskyites and the Japanese intelligence service. Kniazev confirmed that for a similar job the Japanese turned over to Turck, another accused, 35,000 rubles. The victims of the acts of wrecking and sabotage of the Trotskyite gangs were many dead and injured workers. It was in their name also that the prosecutor pressed his charges. Addressing the court in his closing speech, Vyshinsky said: "Not I alone am accusing. Alongside me, comrades and judges, I feel that here stand the victims of these crimes and of these criminals—on crutches, crippled, half-alive and possibly utterly disabled—like the woman switchman Comrade Nagovitsina at the Shustovo station . . . who lost both legs at the age of twenty in preventing the collision organized by these very people." What was Trotsky and his gang trying to accomplish? We will let Radek relate what Trotsky wrote to him. Radek said in Court: "I had three letters from Trotsky: April, 1934; December, 1935; and January, 1936. In the 19.34 letter, Trotsky raised the question in this way." And then Radek goes on: "The advent of fascism to power in Germany basically changes the whole situation. It means the near prospect of war. War is inevitable, all the more so because the situation in the Far East is becoming strained. Trotsky did not doubt that this war would cause the defeat of the Soviet Union. He wrote that this defeat would create real conditions for the bloc to come to power, and he drew the conclusion from this that the bloc was interested in sharpening the conflict." 6
