Transcript "But the fascists receive the following compensation for this. A generally favorable attitude by the bloc to German interests and ^he German government in all question of international policy. "Certain territorial concessions. This was called 'non-resistance to Ukrainian national bourgeois forces in the case of their attempt at self determination'. This means, in concealed form, what Radek spoke of here when he said 'If the Germans set up their Ukrainian government, which, of course, they would not control through a German governor-general but perhaps through a Hetman, but in any case Germans would self-determine the Ukraine' and the Trotsky-Zinoviev bloc would in any case not oppose this.

It would proceed simply from the practical interests of the fascist governments and from what we promise to do for them if we received power." Thus Piatakov related his interview with Trotsky near Oslo. Sure, there is little love lost between Hitler and Trotsky. We 8
