The orders were issued seven days after the war began

Some orders sent from Moscow to indicate the strategy of its related parties

There are very revealing documents. Today I am going to show you one sent by Georgi Dimitrov from Moscow with very specific orders.

The extreme left reactivates against Ukraine the strategy it used against Poland in 1939
United by hatred of democracy: a revealing telegram about the Nazi-Soviet pact of 1939

Dimitrov's orders refer to communist parties. The original was written in German, was issued seven days after the start of the war and reads as follows:

The strategy of Communist parties in all warring lands at this stage of the war is to oppose the war, to expose its imperialist character; where Communist deputies are available, to vote against war credits, to explain to the masses that the war will not bring them anything but adversity and ruin.

Dimitrov's orders add:

Communist parties, especially those of France, England, Belgium, and the United States of America, which have proceeded in opposition to this view, must immediately correct their political line.

I have hidden certain facts about this document, to highlight the extent to which history repeats itself. Those orders were sent on September 8, 1939. The USSR and Nazi Germany had signed the Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact on August 23 of that year, including a secret protocol by which Poland, the Baltic republics, Finland and Bessarabia (a region of Romania that is mostly modern-day Moldova) were divided up. The document of that protocol was found by the British in 1945. Moscow continued to deny it until 1989.

The texts I have cited appear at page 117 of Dimitrov's diary, published by Yale University in 2003. Georgi Dimitrov was the general secretary of the Communist International, who led the communist parties loyal to Stalin, among them the Communist Party of Spain (PCE), which justified the German-Soviet invasion of Poland obediently following Dimitrov's slogans. Along the same lines, the PCE also justified the Soviet invasion of Finland on November 30, 1939.

Remembering those events, two questions can be asked: Does Moscow continue to issue slogans to related political parties in the rest of the world to justify their actions? The question seems to have a clear answer in the actions of certain parties, including the communists, in relation to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Secondly: if such orders exist, how long will it take us to discover them this time?
