The plundering of Russia in the 1920-ies. The first attempts to counter

The ruin in Soviet Russia brought a lot of misfortune to its inhabitants, but it is known that “to whom the war is, and to whom the mother is native,” it was then. Russia sold industrial goods at inflated prices, enterprises and deposits of various resources came under the control of American business. In 1920-ies, the West and its accomplices in Soviet Russia turned out a unique and unknowingly equal-scale operation to plunder Russia.


Even hunger was the subject of fraud, so, in the central committee of the party, the hunger line was headed by Trotsky. With its help, several agreements were concluded with the ARA, an association of charitable and religious organizations, led by the US Secretary of Commerce G. Goover with some businessmen, for example, the famous Armand Hammer. Through them, Russia bought grain, but what is most interesting is that grain in a number of Russian regions also had its own. Crop failure was not everywhere, this grain was sold abroad (!) And immediately carried another, supposedly bought to fight hunger. It is quite possible that this was the Russian grain, already “scrolled”.

In 1922, Roscombank was created for financial operations with Western countries, which was headed by O. Ashberg, who was "famous" for operations to export Russian gold. In January, the Cannes Conference was held on 1922, at which the Soviet government was actually recognized, in March - the Genoa Conference.

Trotsky was in charge of the distribution of concessions, he also managed the campaign for the seizure of church values ​​and led the work on the “realization of Gokhran values”. His wife, N. Sedova, a graduate of Sorbonne University, is an art historian by profession, and took the position of head of Glavmuzey. Thus, the priceless icons of the XV-XVII centuries were left at the “price” of 50-150 rubles. Helped Trotsky in the realization of his uncle Abraham Zhivotovsky, who had settled in Stockholm at that time. Trotsky's sister, Olga, Kamenev's wife, being the chairman of the international department of the All-Russian Central Executive Committee, arranged exhibitions for foreigners in Europe where they offered different values ​​to foreigners. She was assisted in this by Richard Crane, director of Westinghouse Electric, one of the organizers of the February Revolution, then the representative of US President Wilson.

The locking of Gokhran was helped by the head of it, Yakov Yurovsky, who was "made famous" by the murder of the Romanov family. Another member of the Romanovs, the Beloborodov, was also included in the commission for the seizure of church property. Other "Trotskyists": V. Gomberg - headed the Russian-German trading company and the All-Union Chemical Syndicate, Serebrovsky - was responsible for supplies to the Workers 'and Peasants' Red Army, then headed Glavneft and Soyuzzoloto. Through Benjamin Sverdlov, who headed the Supreme Economic Council, exported furs, antiques, oil.

Lenin was aware of this, but could do nothing, apparently, Trotsky had “compromising evidence” on him. In the summer of 1921, he attempted to remove Trotsky from the posts of the People's Commissar for Military and Maritime Affairs and send him to the Ukraine as Commissar of Food. Trotsky ignored the instructions, and then, after a private conversation, Lenin retreated. After that, Trotsky gained control over a number of enterprises of the national economy near Moscow - Moskust. After six months of the actions of the “effective manager” of Trotsky and his people, according to the inspection of Rabkrin (Workers 'and Peasants' Inspectorate), the enterprises were destroyed, turning into a “feeding trough” for pumping public funds into a pocket. But after that, Trotsky got away with everything.

It was the peak of his power, he lived royally, occupied the palace of the princes Yusupov, kept the staff of servants, excellent cooks, personal doctors. In the palace he held his meetings, receptions, and negotiations. During the war he did not forget to take holidays, went hunting, fishing, resorts.

Of course, Lenin could not simply cede all power "without a fight", since it did not work out directly, he began to strengthen Stalin's positions. Unlike Trotsky, he led a completely different life: he was not noticed in relations with foreign circles, he lived very modestly, one might say ascetic. He was constantly at work, was not afraid to take "current problems", showed himself well in the war as an organizer, skillfully brought order, and, unlike Trotsky, was not marked by mass terror - the elimination of the Kolchak breakthrough under Perm in December 1918, in May 1919, breakthrough of the army of A.Rodzianko near Petrograd. During the war with Poland, he oversaw the successful South-Western Front, and insisted on the undesirability of transferring military operations to Polish territory, opposed the idea of ​​"world revolution."

Lenin appreciated the qualities of Stalin and advanced him: Stalin became his closest practical assistant, a conductor of his ideas. He also received the posts of people's commissar for state control and the Workers 'and Peasants' Inspectorate for the post of People's Commissar for Nationalities Affairs. In March, 1922, he was introduced to the Secretariat of the Central Committee, where they come up with a special position - the general secretary. That is, gradually, the positions of statesmen strengthened.

    Yes ... "and, unlike Trotsky, he was not marked by mass terror" ... At the beginning of the 20s, maybe he was not marked - he still did not have enough power. And then?

      And then?

      And then, in the late 30s, she came down with the red camisars and the undeveloped white Democrats, because they organized a civil war.
      The Westerners are still keeping quiet about the repressions of the 20s, and the fact that they have sheltered BLOOD Trotsky are also keeping quiet.

    In the 1920s, the West and its accomplices in Soviet Russia carried out a unique and unknowing operation on the plunder of RosKak, which is unmatched - and the 90s?

    penal battalion, I’m just saying that I don’t accept this author’s pathological desire to whitewash Stalin - he’s the only one who did everything as he should. And millions of repressed people - including (not all, of course) talented scientists, engineers, military leaders - were they also necessary? He always has some kind of flat view of history: they say that these are necessarily bad, and these are white and fluffy, without a single speck ...

      Do you look around and remember, or ask how the stones were in the 80s?
      In honor, in conscience and in fairness, half of them had to be repressed, and the rest flogged - cleaning party is called.

        That's it! And if you try to restore order now, how many creatures need to be “repressed”, and this is exactly what their burry degenerate descendants will call this retaliation in case of revenge.
        And I note again that it is not necessary to confuse the genocide of the Russian and other peoples until the age of 37, which was carried out by the Jews and the subsequent Stalinist purge.

      Apart from the Civil War, from 1922 to 1956 - 600000, many of them for economic crimes. It’s not serious to use the numbers of Conquest and Solzhenitsyn (I generally respect it, but where the numbers are sucked out - it would be nice to ask the State Department)

    Slan, such as the "genocide of the Russian and other peoples until the 37th year" is a crime, and the "subsequent Stalinist purge" is the right and true action ???

    the penal battalion, you’re probably right, but - fortunately or unfortunately, we live not according to “honor, conscience and justice”, but according to laws, which, moreover, are far from always fulfilled ...

      It's about what should be distinguished so-called Stalinist repressions for two periods: before the assassination of Kirov, after which Stalin actually came to power, and until when the Jewish kagal ruled the country. Trotsky-Zinoviev block. So, in the early thirties, millions of normal people were "dispossessed" (destroyed), precisely at that time there was a famine, which in Ukraine is proudly called the Holodomor. It is these innocent victims of the early 30s who like to cite the current burry defenders as an example, but they squeal at the same time and demand privileges for the “victims” of the 37th year, which is not surprising since During these years, the party was cleansed of the parents of these degenerate burry commissars. It is naive to imagine that good was suddenly defeated by evil in 37, but simplistically - in the second half of the 30s, Stalin cleared the country of kodla, destroying normal people in the 20s and early 30s, although he himself left them. And of course, innocent people suffered all the years, but the goals of the Stalinist purge of the party from the enemies of the people were correct and true — to destroy the instigators of the genocide of the peoples of the USSR.

    Slan, but in the early thirties, when collectivization began, Stalin took an active part in it. Yes, of course, before the defeat of Trotsky and Zinoviev, he did not have all the power, but it would be wrong to completely remove from him responsibility for the repressions of the early 30s.
    Now consider 1937 and later. Firstly, not only party members, but also many non-partisans drove to the camps. And secondly, by golly, I don’t understand where all of a sudden, at once, so many pests came from, many of which had already grown up under the “advanced, socialist system”? After all, the repressions of 1937 did not end, they continued in the early 50s, and during this time a whole generation of Soviet people grew ...
    And if we assume that we still have a certain percentage of “enemies of the people” - does this mean that a dozen or two million of our fellow citizens “rightly and rightly” will be sent for barbed wire?

    That's it! And completely blaming him is also not necessary. It's like blaming Putin for the collapse of the USSR on the grounds that he served Sobchak. Of course, the comparison is incorrect, the role of Stalin was not so insignificant., Well, the essence is that he acted in a system that he subsequently destroyed.

    Of course! Well, again, did Stalin personally send everyone there, or were there any kind of “excesses” on the ground? And yet, the bottom line is that in the early thirties, a hundred honest hardworking peasants accidentally destroyed one villain, then in the 37th it was the opposite.

    Excuse me, where are you writing from, from Israel? But the organizers of the flooding of the "Bulgaria" which are now repressed in essence, they are "enemies of the people"? How to call them that? So much filth has come to power now that it is possible to restore order without a “certain percentage” of convicts ... Or do you think that all this organized crime, in fact, can simply be fired and they will go to work and sit quietly at home?
