info: Not the official programme of the Russian Communist Party, but Nikolai Bukharin’s proposition, printed in 1918 by the left-communist “Kommunist” publishing house in Moscow and translated into several languages. More a fiery manifesto than a party programme, it was ridiculed and rejected by Lenin at the 8th Party Congress in March 1919, and subsequently a much more pragmatic programme was adapted. The international outreach of this pamphlet was very impressive – in German language alone, at least three different editions exist.
