From the speech CB Radek at the IX Conference of the RCP (b)
September 22, 1920, Mr..
The Central Committee was not a single friend, who basically spoke against the need to take up arms to help the Polish workers to organize workers and peasants' government. None of us is on the pacifist point of view. So I am saying that there were no fundamental differences regarding the admissibility of an offensive war is not. The differences were only exist in assessing the international situation, . and when I had to speak with his comrades of the decision of the Central Committee, . I have always proceeded from the position, . that neither in Germany, . or France, . nor in England, we do not stand so immediately before the revolution, . that if we invaded Poland, . then Germany will rise and so,
. No such measure, which would allow it to take into account exactly. But from what he actually said t. Lenin, it follows that the evaluation of the international situation was wrong (...) At the core of our error lay reassessment of maturity of the revolution in Central Europe. (...)
. The bayonet is good, if need be to help some of the revolution, but for the provisions of groping in a country, we have another weapon - Marxism, and for this we do not have to send the Red (...) I definitely think that the problem was.
