CENTRAL COMMITTEE. COMMUNIST PARTY OF THE SOVIET UNION [TsK KPSS]
Additional Measures To Expose Imperialist Policies
We intend to make use of concrete facts to expose capitalist
reality, political and ideological diversions of imperialism, the
totalitarian character of a bourgeois state, and the strengthening
of reactionary thought in the bourgeois apparatus and in
capitalistic society as a whole.
The realization of such measures will permit us to coordinate
the Soviet press, radio and television in such a way that the
public's attention will be directed to the concrete manifestations
of the anti-popular nature of imperialism.
Such propaganda campaigns will help the press agency Novosti,
and politically oriented radio programs transmitted abroad to force
our idealogical enemy onto disadvantageous paths in the ideological
A calendar of this type of events, mainly pertaining to the
USA is attached. Similar plans pertaining to other imperialistic
states could be developed in the course of work.
We request your review.
