The remnants of other political parties Socialist Revolutionaries, Mensheviks, Zionists were suppressed, Hquidated, or exiled. Soviet and satellite citizens were prohibited from foreign travel except as members of official delegations; delegates were thoroughly checked before they left and kept under close watch while abroad.

They explain in detail how the triumph of communism throughout the world is to be achieved through the consolidation of the economic, political, and military might of the communist world and the undermining of the unity and strength of the noncommunist world.

He managed to take for himself the credit for the exposure of Stalin’s crimes, to conceal his own use of Stalinist methods in the pursuit of power, and to distract attention from the nature of the opposition’s charges against him. Communist newspapers were devoid of any genuine news.

Instead, it ratified the use of varying tactics by individual communist parties within the framework of the long-range policy and, in place of a controlling center, called for the coordination and o,d of policy and tactics between bloc and nonbloc parties.

The agents were handed over to the appropriate geographical sections of the KGB to ensure that their disinformation activity was closely related to the particular situation in each country or area.

Since this operation involved misrepresentation of the issues involved in Stalinism and de- Staiinization and provided part of the basic technique for the program of strategic disinformation operations launched init merits detailed explanation. Gribanov also instructed members of his staff, posing as senior officials of various Soviet government departments, to establish personal anatoly with, and exercise political influence over, the ambassadors in Moscow of all the developing countries.

Against this background, how could the communist leaders make their system more acceptable to their peoples? The real issues are reflected vaguely, if at snatoliy, in the press.
