Comrades! Fellow countrymen and countrywomen!
Today, September 2, political and military representatives of Japan signed an act of unconditional surrender. Utterly defeated on sea and land, and completely surrounded by the armed forces of the United Nations, Japan has admitted defeat and has laid down her arms.
Two hotbeds of world fascism and world aggression had been formed on the eve of the present World War: Germany in the West and Japan in the East. It was they who unleashed the Second World War. It was they who brought mankind and civilization to the brink of doom. The hotbed of world aggression in the West was destroyed four months ago and, as a result, Uermany was forced to capitulate. Four months later the hotbed of aggression in the East was destroyed and as a res1', Japan, Germany's principal ally, was also compelled to sign an act of capitulation.
This signifies the end of the Second World War.
Now we can say that the conditions necessary for peace all over the world have been gained.
It must be observed that the Japanese aggressors inflicted damage not only on our Allies - China, the U.S.A. and Great Britain. They also inflicted extremely grave damage on our country. That is why we have a seperate account to settle with Japan.
Japan commenced her aggression against our country as far back as 1904,during the Russo -Japanese War. As we know, in February 1904, when negotiations between Japan and Russia were still proceeding, Japan, taking advantage of the weakness of the tsarist government, suddenly and perfidiously, without declaring war, fell upon our country and attacked the Russian fleet in the region of Port Arthur with the object of putting a number of Russian warships out of action and thereby creating an advantageous position for her fleet. She did, indeed, put out of action three Russian first-class warships. It is characteristic that 37 years later Japan played exactly the same perfidious trick against the United States when, in 1941, she attacked the United States naval base in Pearl Harbour and put a number of American battleships out of action. As we know, in the war against Japan, Russia was defeated. Japan took advantage of the defeat of tsarist Russia to seize from Russia the southern part of Sakhalin and establish herself on the Kuril Islands, thereby putting the lock on all our country's outlets to the ocean in the East, which meant also all outlets to the ports of Sovfet Kamchatka and Soviet Chukotka. It was obvious that Japan was aiming to deprive Russia of the whole of her Far East.
But this does not exhaust the list of Japan's aggressive operations against our country. In 1918, after the Soviet system was established in our country, Japan, taking advantage of the hostility then displayed towards the Land of the Soviets by Great Britain, France and the United States, and leaning upon them, again attacked our country, occupied the Far East and for four years tormented our people and looted the Soviet Far East.
Nor is this all. In 1938 Japan attacked our country again, in the region of Lake Hasan, near Vladivostok, with the object of surrounding Vladivostok; and in the following year Japan repeated her attack in another place, in the region of the Mongolian People's Republic, near Khalkin-gol, with the object of breaking into Soviet territory, severing our Siberian Railway and cutting off the Far East from Russia.
True, Japan's attacks in the regions of Hasan and Khalkin-gol were liquidated by the Soviet troops, to the extreme humiliation of the Japanese. Japanese military intervention in 1918-1922 was liquidated with equal success and Japanese invaders were expelled from our Far Eastern regions. But the defeat of the Russian troops in 1904 during the Russo-Japanese War left bitter memories in the minds of our people. It lay like a black stain on our country. Our people believed in and waited for the day when Japan would be defeated and the stain would be wiped out. We of the older generation waited for this day for forty years, and now this day has arrived. Today Japan admitted defeat and signed an act of unconditional surrender.
This means that the southern part of Sakhalin and the Kuril Islands revert to the Soviet Union and henceforth will serve not as a barrier between the Soviet Union and the ocean and as a base for Japanese attack upon our Far East but as a direct means of communication between the Soviet Union and the ocean and a base for the defence of our country against Japanese aggression.
Our Soviet people spared neither strength nor labour for the sake of victory.We experienced extremely hard years. But now everyone of us can say: We have won. Henceforth we can regard our country as being free from the menace of German invasion in the West and of Japanese invasion in the East. The long awaited peace for the peoples of all the world has come.
I congratulate you, my dear fellow countrymen and country-women, on this great victory, on the successful termination of the war, and on- the ushering in of peace all over the world!
Glory to the armed forces of the Soviet Union, the United States of America, China and Great Britain which achieved victory over Japan!
Glory to our Far Eastern troops and our Pacific Fleet, which upheld the honour and dignity of our country!
Glory to our great people, the victorious people!
Eternal glory to the heroes who fell fighting for the honour and victory of our country! May our country flourish and prosper!
J. V. Stalin

On September 2, 1945, in Tokyo, representatives of Japan signed the document of unconditional surrender of the Japanese forces.
The war which the Soviet people together with our allies made against the last aggressor - Japanese imperialism - has ended victoriously. Japan is defeated and has surrendered.
Comrades of the Red Army, sailors of the Red Navy, Sergeants (First Mates), Officers of the Army and the Navy, General, Admirals and Marshals, I congratulate you on the victorious conclusion of the war against Japan.
In appreciation of the victory over Japan, the whole of the capital of our Motherland, Moscow, will today, September 3,the day of the vie tory over Japan, salute at 21.00 hours, in the name of our country, the glorious troops of the Red Army,the ships and formations of the Navy, which have achieved this victory, with 24 artillery salvoes from 324 canons.
To the eternal glory of the heroes who fell in the battle for the honour and victory of our homeland!
To the life and progress of our Red Army and our Navy.
On December 27, 2000 "Rossiyskaya Gazeta" – the official newspaper of the current Russian government, published a package of federal constitutional laws on state symbols adopted by the State Duma on December 8, 2000 Since their publication, they acquired legal force.
The State Flag Day of the Russian Federation was approved in 1994 by the Decree of President Boris Yeltsin to commemorate the adopted on August 22, 1991 Resolution of the Supreme Council "On the national flag of the Russian Federation" –the Tricolour "of equal horizontal white, azure and crimson stripes." (The decree was signed by Ruslan Khasbulatov).
We offer our readers a fragment of an article by N.A. Andreeva dedicated to the flag, emblem and anthem of the Russian Federation. Read the full article on the website of the AUCPB in the "Library" in the book "For Bolshevism inside the communist movement" in part "Our attitude to the symbols of the Russian Federation", Ed. CC AUCPB 2001, L., p.137.
As you know, state symbols define the essence of the socio-political system, ideology and policy of the state.
On the State Flag of the Russian Federation.
The white-blue-red tricolour was approved as the State Flag of the Russian Federation. As you know, in August 1991, during the period of political upheaval in the country, the flag was pulled out of the caches by pathological anti-communists, became a symbol of bourgeois counter-revolution, to destroy our socialist fatherland, plundering our national wealth, throwing the country back a century in its historical development, by making it a beggar robbed by the West, and above all - the United States, acquired by robbing us of its budget surplus of 70 billion U.S. dollars.
By powerful brainwashing of the brains of the population, all the media all the time were trying to convince us that the placement of the country's white-blue-red tricolour is a "return to the historical national flag of Russia." For the Ivanov’s, who do not know the history of their state, we recall that the white-blue-red tricolour has never been a national flag of Russia, nor one under any of the Russian tsars, neither under Peter I, under Alexander III, or under Nicholas II.
According to the decree of Peter I in No 2021 January 1705, the first strictly defined national symbol of Russia, the status of the State Flag of the Russian State was designated for a black-yellow-white tricolour. Namely the standard of the Grand Duchy of Moscow, which was borrowed from Byzantium and the ancient Roman Empire, of the two-headed black eagle on a golden field with the added by Muscovites three crowns on the two heads of the eagle, under Peter I was transformed into the flag of the Russian Empire – the black-yellow-white tricolour.
According to the same Decree of Peter I, the white-blue-red tricolour was defined as the merchants' flag, which allowed the circulation of merchant sea vessels ONLY in the internal waters of Russia. "Whoever pokes his nose out will be severely punished" – was stated in the Decree of Peter I.
Under Nicholas II, the white-blue-red tricolour in 1905, during the period of the suppression of the First Russian Revolution, became a symbol created at the same time by the Black Hundred organization "Union of Russian people," the banner of bloody Jewish pogroms. We note that the first honorary members of the Black Hundred organizations was Nicholas II himself and his young heir to the throne, from that point, on his chest was adorned with white-blue-red ribbon.
The "Union of Russian people" enjoyed the special favour of the Russian tsar and privileges inaccessible to others, and constantly reported to the emperor on the number of victims of the pogroms carried out by the Black Hundreds. Nicholas II, who by then was a criminal canonized by the Orthodox Church, raised to the rank of a "martyr" and probably fooling around and showing off his sophisticated European education on the correlations of the Black Hundreds about the pogroms put his royal resolution in French: "I was tickled." (!)
The Black Hundreds, together with their white-blue-red tricolour were outlawed in the February bourgeois-democratic revolution. After that, the white-blue-red tricolour appeared on street demonstrations in June 1917 in the hands of extreme nationalists - members of the "Military League", calling for carrying on by Russia of the first imperialist war "to a victorious end."
After the Great October Socialist Revolution, the white-blue-red tricolour become the flag of the White governments on the territory of Soviet Russia. General Wrangel, who escaped abroad and gathered an army there to fight "Bolshevism", made the tricolour the banner of the struggle against the Soviets. Later, the white-blue-red tricolour became the symbol of the young Wrangelists who formed the People's Labour Union of Solidarists (NTS) and in 1933 actively cooperated with the punitive organs of Nazi Germany (SS, SD and the Gestapo), supplying them with cadres for reconnaissance and sabotage activities on the territory of the USSR. The NTS intensified especially in the Great Patriotic War. NTS members placed officers and ideological cadres into the so-called Russian Liberation Army (ROA), led by general-traitor Vlasov, created by the SS members under the personal supervision of the chief of the SS H. Himmler, traitors voluntarily coming to Vlasov, previously tested in punitive operations against the Soviet population. In November 1944, the Vlasov military formation received on the personal orders of Hitler as its battle flag the white-blue-red tricolour. Under this tricolour, the Vlasov military forces, being structurally incorporated into the Waffen-SS, they set fire to Soviet tanks on the west of the Oder bridgehead.
Thus the white-blue-red tricolour, being up ra-ised now as the status of the State Flag of the Russian Federation, has been and remains a symbol of the bloody Jewish pogroms in the years of the Tsarist autocracy, is a symbol of national betrayal and treachery in the Great Patriotic War, is an act of monstrous mockery of the blessed memory of the Soviet people, the best of the best of them, who gave their lives in the struggle against fascism, is an act of another provocation by Zionism, calling on actually to organize new pogroms (of course, of not the oligarchs, but of ordinary Jews) in Russia in order to encourage them to move to "the promised land", together with the young, who are so needed as cannon fodder in the struggle between Israel and the Arabs in the Middle East.
Walking today under this white-blue-red tricolour means not to understand its misanthropic essence, and who are not afraid to soil oneself in the blood that drips from this state symbol of "New Russia".

ON THE EVENTS OF 24 YEARS AGO - THE STATE OF EMERGENCY COMMITTEE (17-22 AUGUST 1991) (The so- called August putsch)
The attempts at dismissing Mikhail Gorbachev from the post of President of the USSR and policy change by them.
Firstly, let us recall the course of events of August, 1991.
- On August 17, in a closed residence of the KGB in Moscow, a meeting of the future members of the Emergency Committee was held. It was decided to introduce a state of emergency across the territory of the USSR.
- On 18 August, representatives of the Committee (State of Emergency Committee (GKChP)) flew to the Crimea for a meeting with Gorbachev, who was there with his family in Foros in the country house on holiday. The purpose of the trip was for the Committee to obtain the consent of Gorbachev to introduce a state of emergency in the country. Gorbachev refused to give his consent to it. As directed by Gorbachev at the presidential dacha, on 18 August 1991 at 16.32, all forms of communications, including the channel providing control of the strategic nuclear forces of the USSR were disabled.
- On August 19, the morning All-Union radio began broadcasting a message about the state of emergency in some regions of the USSR, the decree by Vice-President of the USSR, Yanaev, of his entry into office of the President of the USSR in connection with the ill health of Gorbachev, the Statement of the Soviet leadership on the establishment of the State of Emergency Committee in the USSR, and the State of Emergency Committee appeal to the Soviet people.
The State of Emergency Committee included Vice-president of the USSR Gennady Yanayev, Prime Minister of the USSR Valentin Pavlov, Minister of Internal Affairs of the USSR, Boris Pugo, Defense Minister Dmitry Yazov, Chairman of the KGB, Vladimir Kryuchkov, the first deputy chairman of the Defense Council of the USSR Oleg Baklanov, the chairman of the Peasant Union of the USSR Vasily Starodubtsev , president of the Association of State Enterprises and Industry, Construction, Transport and Communications of the USSR Alexander Tizyakov.
- Around 7.00 am on the orders of Yazov, the second Motorized Infantry Taman Division and the Fourth Armored Division Kantemirovskaya began to move towards Moscow. The 51 th, 137 th and 331 th Parachute Regiment also began to move to the capital on military equipment.
- 09.00. At the monument to Yury Dolgoruky in Moscow, began the rally in support of democracy and Yeltsin.
- 09.40. Russian President Boris Yeltsin and his associates arrive at the "White House" (House of Soviets of the RSFSR), in a telephone conversation with Kryuchkov, he refuses to recognize the State of Emergency Committee.
- 10.00. Troops occupy their assigned positions in the centre of Moscow. Directly at the "White House" is the armoured battalion of the Tula Airborne Division under the command of Major-General Alexander Lebed and the Taman Division.
- 11.45. The first column of demonstrators arrive at the Manezh Square. No action to disperse the crowds had been taken.
- 12.15. By the "White House" had gathered several thousand citizens who Boris Yeltsin came to meet. He read from the top of a tank, an "Appeal to the citizens of Russia", which described the actions of the State of Emergency Committee as a "reactionary, anti-constitutional coup". Appeal was signed by Russian President Boris Yeltsin, chairman of the RSFSR Council of Ministers Ivan Silayev and acting Chairman of the RSFSR Supreme Soviet, Ruslan Khasbulatov.
- 12.30. Yeltsin issues decree No.59, where the creation of the State of Emergency Committee was characterized as an attempted coup.
Then in August 1991, from the first hours of the State of Emergency Committee, the All-Union Society "Yedinstvo (Unity) - for Leninism and communist ideals" and the "Bolshevik platform in the CPSU", which I chaired, supported the introduction of the state of emergency in the country. At that time we supported their first and only political document. The document stated that the development of the country should not be built on the fall in living standards, and that any attempt to speak the language of our country by dictate should be prevented and that any attempt to undermine our sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity must be opposed. Who can object to such completely correct positions?
By August 1991, events in the country began to develop very rapidly in a negative direction. We believed that the actions by the State of Emergency Committee were intended to renounce the vicious course of perestroika. In fact, their actions were directed at correcting Gorbachev's perestroika without changing its restorative essence, essentially a capitalist essence. We realized this three days later after 19 August.
How did we evaluate those events and how do we evaluate them now? We then characterized the confrontation of the anti-communists - democrats * with the State of Emergency Committee as the beginning of an open resolute offensive by the forces of internal counterrevolution on the socialist achievements of the Soviet people. The events of those days were in fact volte-face, when behind the screen of the State of Emergency Committee, the "democrats" implemented, or committed, a true political anti-constitutional coup in the country. The coup was carried out not by the State of Emergency Committee, but by namely the anti-communist democrats, when the term "reconstruction" (perestroika) was almost dropped, which by them had already become unnecessary, and which there is a change or replacement of the leaders of the counter-revolution, a change of the major players in this tragedy the country, a change of Gorbachev over to Yeltsin. As it is now known to all, and we knew it back then, Yeltsin was chosen by Academician Andrei Sakharov for using Yeltsin as a battering ram to destroy the Soviet Union, for the destruction of the communist ideology, and the destruction of socialism. At the direction of Andrei Sakharov, the "democrats", who before held a negative attitude to Yeltsin, recruited Yeltsin into the higher echelons of power to perform the designated mission of counter-revolution.
We at the time, a few days after the State of Emergency Committee, identified the events of those days as a spectacle, whose script was written by professional US intelligence services abroad, and carried out by the conductor Gorbachev. Actors were, on the one hand the members of the State of Emergency Committee who did not understand the role written for them, and on the other hand - Yeltsin and the democrats anti-communists. Gorbachev, who has always expressed himself vaguely, wagged it and can be understood in different ways, and Gorbachev did not understand, did not recognize that in this spectacle, he cast the slaughter in the last act. Therefore, not realizing until the end what he was destined for, he calmly directed this play, written by his Western benefactors. He, with interest directed the events. The question is, what interest did Gorbachev have in the State of Emergency Committee? We recall that on August 20, there was the scheduled signing of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). The name itself was subject of quite a long discussion. The latest wording was Commonwealth of Independent States. In fact, on August 20, an agreement had to be signed under which the Soviet Union as a state would be liquidated, to dissolve the Union and Gorbachev as President of the USSR to be removed, (which is indeed what later happened). Next, he was appointed in November under pressure from the Party masses of the XXIX Congress of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union with the adoption of a new party program, which was proposed by Gorbachev's entourage. In the case of the adoption of the new Programme, the Communist Party would have turned into a neo-Menshevik liberal bourgeois party with the recognition of the rule of all forms of property ownership. The party General Secretary could easily have lost his status at this congress. This we were told at the All-Union Conference of the Bolshevik platform of the CPSU, which was held in Minsk on 13 July 1991.
One of the paragraphs of the resolution of the conference was about how to reject perestroika as an anti-people’s policy of capitulation, which had already led the country to a national catastrophe with a near term dismemberment of the Soviet Union into separate sovereigns and the transformation of the Soviet Motherland into a semi-colony of the West. Specifically Gorbachev at the upcoming XXIX Congress of the CPSU threatened to be held liable by the party with the wording (our formulation of the resolutions of the Bolshevik platform of the CPSU) "for the collapse of the CPSU, the Soviet state, for the betrayal of Lenin, October, the international communist and workers' movement." We know from reporters that Gorbachev after receiving information on the decision of our Conference about him, asked his assistant to clarify the wording of the punishment coming to him by the party.
The "democrats" as the main charge against the State of Emergency Committee imputed capture, ostensibly, they have power, which is absolutely untenable. Before the State of Emergency Committee, each member of the committee formed by them already possessed unlimited power, for This committee as a whole was indeed the entire Security Council of the USSR, with deputy prime minister, then acting president, Prime Minister, Chairman of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR, chief ministers of departments. They one and all had no need to expand their authority, because they already had unlimited power.
Events August 19 by the State of Emergency Committee cannot be called a putch (coup) since, as with any coup, first of all, political opponents are completely neutralized. This was not done by the committee members. Yeltsin and Sobchak (Leningrad) were freely talking in the media and in public squares with no restrictions on their public activity. Troops were brought to the capital only as a sham, a show of force to intimidate the crowds: the troops did not have any ammunition or any clear orders from the State of Emergency Committee to take any action. The committee members were hostages of the situation. Let us remember, if only, the trembling hands of Yanaev at a press conference where the committee said that Gorbachev should return (!). In the course of events it was evident that they were waiting for instructions, instructions (from Gorbachev, of course), and because none followed, then the committee became confused. But Gorbachev isolated himself from the State of Emergency Committee by arranging only one-way communication with them: only he could connect the phone with the committee when he wanted to. They were deprived of such a connection. Gorbachev "in limbo" peacefully swam about in the Black Sea with his family. Security around Foros in those days was the same as usual when the president was there.
The farce in the situation of the State of Emergency Committee was that among its members , there were no figures that could take over full responsibility for the development of events.
All the members of the State of Emergency Committee were not competent enough for the job at hand. This also applies to Kryuchkov and Varennikova and Lukyanov and Yazov and others. And Starodubtsev, well he was a decent honest farmer, a good leader of the collective farm, but no more than that, and certainly not a politician.
The media has information available, as if Leningrad came out almost entirely against the putsch, maybe even more cohesively than Moscow. The troops were brought to Moscow but none went into Leningrad. It is alleged that in Leningrad there were a lot of supporters of Yeltsin. In fact, not at all. And the rally on Palace Square of anti-communists and democrats in support of Yeltsin did not indicate its mass support. Palace Square holds a (completely filled) only 110 thousand people. 110 thousand in an almost 5-million strong population city - some 2-4% of the population in all. There were no other demonstrations or rallies by "democrats" in those days in Leningrad, except on 19 August. But we should not forget that the main anti-communist "democratic" elite is based in Leningrad, and not in Moscow. And therefore even if there were 110 thousand people, although there were a lot less, this is very few to talk about mass support of Yeltsin in Leningrad. And then we must not forget that the "democratic" intellectual elite of mostly descendants of repressed people by Soviet power, those who actively opposed Soviet power and the people. And among these "repressed" many of those were imprisoned on criminal charges, and not political charges. Take, for example, "honorary citizen of St. Petersburg" Academician Likhachev, who was interned during the war in a camp and therefore, perhaps, lived almost to 90 years old.
Why was he "repressed"? From the archives of Pushkin House (Russian Research Institute with a huge library of literature which has a rich collection of manuscripts and other relics that belonged to our great compatriot, A.S. Pushkin in particular) before the war a valuable part of the archive went missing, which then suddenly appeared on sale at one of the European auctions, it seems in London. Likhachev, then a junior researcher was responsible for preserving the relics. Likhachev got 4 years in a camp - he was given a minimum period, taking into account his young age. His stint during the second world war, when at the battle fronts best of our Soviet people bled and died, began in the years of Gorbachev's perestroika and subject to speculation on the part of the mass of anti-Soviet elite intellectuals. Thus the "conscience of the nation" is not a victim of "Stalinist repression".
It is also known that those who were imprisoned for specific criminal offenses have been rehabilitated and are recognized as innocently convicted under Stalin by the Commission on Rehabilitation, headed by Alexander Yakovlev. In particular, the known case (discussed in the press) when a man was imprisoned for the murder of his wife, has been rehabilitated as a "victim of Stalin's repression."
With regard to the August events that took place 24 years ago, I want to note that over the past 24 years, there have been so many very bright events in the life of the party which I chair since its inception that the events of the State Emergency Committee have somehow gone by the wayside, have become dull. But perhaps the most striking was how the counter-revolution revealed itself - highlighting the acting forces and those ordering the events of those days. Somewhere on August 20, 1991, in "Komsomolskaya Pravda" was published an article by the journalist that "the money to the barricades was being carried in suitcases. 13 suitcases of money alone!" I literally quote this from memory - it is clearly etched in my memory.
The "Patriots Democrats" were very well funded. To the barricades, which in addition there very few in Moscow, in those days were carried "suitcases" and even car loads of not only money, but also all the over-deficit – smoked sausage and salami, brandy, as well as expensive imported cigarettes, etc. etc. All this was handed out to whoever turned out to be near or at the barricades. One member of our All-Union Society "Unity - for Leninism and communist ideals" in those days was in Moscow and out of curiosity was at the barricades. He was offered money and pointed the way to where it was being distributed. The newspaper also wrote that the trucks, dump trucks, and various construction equipment, from which the barricades were constructed, "was bought with the money of entrepreneurs", in other words by those who had already plundered much of national wealth and were happy to have spared the plunder, in order to maintain "perestroika" and not turn events on 180 degrees. We need to understand that the money received by Gorbachev for "perestroika" in the form of IMF loans were involved in this as well. This was part of the so-called "debt of the Soviet Union."
Returning to the events of 24 years ago, yet again I emphasise, that the number of supporters of Yeltsin at that time was very, very small. Only the failure of the State of Emergency Committee, their own cowardice, and their fear to speak directly to the people whom I think they themselves feared, failed to allow them to stop the counter-revolution, and gave it a chance to succeed. According to that same Igor Gaidar, the number of defenders at the barricades was very small.
Even from the events of August 1991, there follows a simple conclusion, that one of the main causes of the destruction of the USSR was the de-generation of the top echelons of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, its leadership incompetence after J.V. Stalin, its treacherous, conciliatory position with anti-communists, unscrupulous promotion to higher posts in the Leadership of untrustworthy people, the last of whom was Mikhail Gorbachev. Later it turned out that he was an agent of influence. I believe that Gorbachev had been recruited by the US secret services during the period of his study at the Moscow State University of Lomonosov (1950-1955). Then, in the university dormitory he shared a room with Mlynarzh - one of the leaders of the Prague Spring of 1968.
The CPSU Central Committee could not but know that back in the 70s, Gorbachev, working in the Stavropol region (since 1966 – 1st Secretary of the Stavropol GK CPSU), together with Shevardnadze discussed the issue that "the communist system should be changed from head to toe". This was written by Henry Kissinger in his book about a conversation with Gorbachev in 1989. (Henry Kissinger’s book "Diplomat", pub.1997., p.727). Henry Kissinger was US Secretary of State from 1973 to 1977, and National Security Advisor to the US 1969-1975.
Gorbachev surprisingly quickly moved up the corporate ladder to the party post of General Secretary of the CPSU. In 1978, he became secretary of the CPSU Central Committee, in 1980, - a member of the Politburo and on March 11, 1985, he was appointed General Secretary of the CPSU Central Committee. An analysis of his career indicates that his pathway is CLEARED towards supreme power. After the death of Brezhnev, Andropov took the post of General Secretary (from 10.11.1982), who suddenly dies in less than 1.5 years (February 1984). His successor, Chernenko "directed" for even less that time (13.02.1984 - 10 March 1985). I think Gorbachev path was cleared by the very top party leadership of the Communist Party, and not without "consultations" with the higher intelligence agencies and the leaders of the West, in particular with Margaret Thatcher and the US President.
In ancient Rus, there is a well-known adage that a fish rots starting at the head. The CPSU - the leading force of society, "the mind, honour and conscience of the era", began rotting from the top echelons of power - from the Politburo of the CC CPSUI, infecting by rot and bureaucratic degeneration the entire apparatus of the CPSU. The collapse of the CPSU predestined the collapse of the USSR. Thus the collapse of the state and the elimination of socialism we must put down to the decomposed structures of the CPSU, the party apparatchiks and gradual transference over into business. And it is not the millions of communists loyal to the people, and who worked hard honestly all their lives and did not betray the ideals of Leninism. It was not socialism and the communist idea that failed as liberal democrats keep whining on about. It was the "party structures" de-generated by opportunism, rotten and dead to the core that revealed its inconsistency. The ruling CPSU broke away from the people, divorcing itself from the rest of society.
We have no doubt that socialism, sooner or later will cleanse itself from defilement, will overcome the crisis of its growth and reveal the limitless possibilities of self-improvement. Objectively, only the international working class and socialism can salvage mankind from military, economic, environmental, demographic, information and other global crises. Only socialism fully reflects eternal human interests, human values and the results of creativity of the masses.
The future is with socialism and communism! Our duty is hasten and bring forth their triumph.

* "democrats" is what the current "liberals" called themselves at the time

WHILE LONDONERS braved the rain to attend the Notting Hill Carnival or the many other fairs and festivals held across the capital on Bank Holiday Monday, supporters of the Korean revolution picketed the south Korean and US embassies to demand the withdrawal of all imperialist forces from south Korea.

The protest began outside the south Korean puppet embassy at 2.00 pm to condemn the joint American-puppet regime war-games that have heightened tension on the Korean peninsula and denounced the recent arrest of a number of pro-reunification patriots in south Korea.
KFA Chair Dermot Hudson said that a war was narrowly averted in Korea last week thanks to the patient and peace loving efforts of the DPR Korea. In order to avert war permanently US troops must be withdrawn from south Korea and there must be an end to exercises such as Ulji Freedom Guardian.
The picketers then moved on to the US embassy in Grosvenor Square at 4.00 pm to continue the protest and denounce the human rights violations by the US and its crimes against the Korean people.

Comrades, including NCP leader Andy Brooks and Daphne Liddle and Theo Russell from the Central Committee, took part in the KFA demonstrations together with other supporters of Democratic Korea.

KOREA’S liberation day was marked in style last week by comrades and friends at a seminar in central London on Thursday 13th August. NCP leader Andy Brooks joined other Korean solidarity workers in stressing the importance of the Workers Party of Korea and great leader Kim Il Sung’s guerrilla army in ending 35 years of Japanese enslavement in August 1945.
Other speakers included Dermot Hudson, Theo Russell and David Munoz from the Korean Friendship Association that organised the evening meeting at the Cock Tavern in Euston to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Korea.
The meeting was honoured by the presence of Hyong Hak Bong, the DPRK’s London Ambassador, who said that the liberation of Korea was the greatest gain of the Korean people and the greatest exploit achieved by the great leader President Kim Il Sung. And many in the audience took the golden opportunity to ask the Democratic Korean ambassador about the current situation and the DPRK’s nuclear deterrent during the discussion that followed.
After a round-table discussion the seminar formally concluded with the unanimous agreement to send a congratulatory message to Democratic Korean leader Kim Jong Un. But it continued informally during the party that followed to celebrate the anniversary of Korea's liberation.
