This report, the Memorandum on Certain Aspects of the Bolshevist Movement in Russia, is an extensive report from the U.S. State Department originally made to the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations and to the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the House of Representatives by Robery Lansing, Secretary of State in the Wilson Administration.
The purpose of this report is detailed in its own Foreword as follows: "The memorandum has been prepared from original sources by the Division of Russian Affairs of the Department of State. As you will see, the statements are based almost entirely on translations from Bolshevist newspapers. These include the official organs of the All-Russian Central Executive Committee of Soviets, of local Soviet committees, and of the Russian Communist Party (Bolsheviks). The Bolsheviks' own statements are supplemented by the reports of American representatives."
This report, published here at Christogenea in December 2011, is is an internet first: this report has, so far as we can find, never before been made available to the general public until we were able to post it here.
