It is not true that I “supported” Comrade Vorobyov’s statement that the Bolsheviks and Mensheviks cannot work together in one party. I did not in any way “support” such an assertion, and do not share that opinion at all. The sense of my statement: “I am glad Comrade Vorobyov was the first to say that,” was purely ironical; for the victors, having a majority at the Congress, only revealed their weakness by being the first to speak of a split.
I propose that the following note be added to the rules on amalgamation with the Bund:
The Congress instructs the Central Committee to give effect to these rules immediately after they are confirmed by the Bund.
