Communism and Russia Author(s): Robert C
Thus Tchitcherin, a pure Russian, is eclipsed by his nominal subordinate, Litvinoff, and the influence of Russians like Bukharin or Lunacharski cannot be compared with the power of Trotsky, or of Zinovieff, the Dictator of the Red Citadel (Petrograd), or of Krassin or Radek -- all Jews.
Soviet Leader Abandoned Communism After Walking Into a …
Francis, United States ambassador in Russia, warned in a January 1918 dispatch to Washington: "The Bolshevik leaders here, most of whom are Jews and 90 percent of whom are returned exiles, care little for Russia or any other country but are internationalists and they are trying to start a worldwide social revolution."
Russian used to have some letters, which we see at right, mostly borrowed from Greek and used for borrowed Greek words, that were eliminated in the Soviet period.

What is often ignored in the takeover of the Russian nation by the Communists is that it occurred only because of the moral failure of the Christian leaders and Church of Russia. The communists were an obscure political movement in Russia in 1913. In 1914 Czar Nicholas decided to go to war for no reason at all with the support of the Russian Orthodox Church. Within 3 years there were 2 million war dead, famine and economic collapse in the Russian empire. This was entirely self inflicted. The Kerensky government continued the same mistakes and met the same fate as the Czar. Lenin negotiated an unfavorably peace with the Germans which nearly cost him his life but he knew he needed to withdraw from the war because he wanted to eliminate all his opponents. The British and French were opposed to Lenin, not because of communism, but because he was unwilling to continue fighting the Germans. WW1 shows how far the Christian nations of Europe had strayed from the Gospel and were essentially Christian in name only. In an alternate universe the Russian Orthodox Church excommunicated the Czar, the Lutheran Church excommunicated the Kaiser, the Archbishop of Canterbury excommunicated the Prime Minister and the Pope excommunicated the Austrian Hungarian Emperor and the war ended because there were no Christian soldiers who were willing to fight in the war. The same happened in WW2. If the Catholics and Protestants of Germany and Italy had refused to support Hitler and Mussolini there would have been no WW2 and the Soviet Union would never have taken over Eastern Europe. It is the Christian refusal to obey the 5th commandment that allowed the communists to take over so many countries.
