This appeal, printed above the names of A. Kerensky, Victor Tchernoff [Chernov], and other Russian Social Revolutionaries for the 32 former members of the Russian Constituent Assembly, protests the hardships inflicted upon Russia by communism. They accuse the Bolshevik government and its New Economic Policy of selling Russia's natural resources to the greed of international capitalism. The NEP was announced by Lenin in March 1921 and inaugurated an interim policy guaranteeing freedom of trade in internal commerce and a system of concessions for the investment of foreign capital. European states and busineses were pleased with the NEP and saw in it Lenin's capitulation to capitalism. However, what they considered a weakness eventually turned out to be a mark of strength and flexibility of Bolshevik policy.
