Rykov and Bukharin under escort follow to the hall of the House of Unions at the trial
80 years ago, on March 15, 1938, the defendants in the case of the "right-Trotskyist center" were shot, including N. I. Bukharin, A. I. Rykov and others.
From prison Nikolai Ivanovich Bukharin wrote to Stalin (in December 1937, on the eve of the trial):
"There is some big and bold political idea of ​​general cleansing a) in connection with the pre-war time, b) in connection with the transition to democracy. This cleansing captures a) the perpetrators, b) suspicious and c) potentially suspicious. Without me there could not Some are neutralized in this way, others in a different way, and third in a third way. The safety moment is that people inevitably talk about each other and settle distrust for each other forever (judging by myself: how I became angry with Radek who beat me up and then went this way himself ). Thus, the management created a complete guarantee. For God's sake, do not get so that I am here hidden reproach, even thinking to himself.I have grown so much out of the children's diapers that I understand that big plans, big ideas and big interests overlap everything, and it would be petty to raise the question of your own person along with world-historical tasks that lie primarily on your shoulders. "
The reasoning about the “transition to democracy” sounds a bit naive, but at that time it was a question of competitive elections, Bukharin knew about this, there were even samples of bulletins for such elections:

March 12, 1938, uttering the last word at the trial, Bukharin said:
"In prison, I overestimated my past. For when you ask yourself: if you die, in the name of what will you die? And then all of a sudden, with amazing clarity, an absolutely black void appears."

80 years ago, the Soviet press announced the execution of N. I. Bukharin and other convicts at the trial of the "right-trotsky bloc"
Personally, I am much more sympathetic to the position of the revolutionaries who did not surrender to the end (there were, after all, such). (For example, they didn’t take Maria Spiridonov to an open trial, although she "could" show that, together with Bukharin, she was going to arrest or kill Lenin in 1918.But for some reason it did not work out, and the testimony against Bukharin in 1938 at the trial was given by several minor Left Social Revolutionaries. Of the Bolsheviks, not only Trotsky, Victor Serzh, Myasnikov did not surrender, but, for example, Raskolnikov). However, the motives of Bukharin and others are quite understandable. Anticipating the inevitable clash between fascism and the Soviet regime, they made an unequivocal choice in favor of the latter, for the sake of "world-historical tasks" and closed their eyes to their own destinies.
However, anyone who reads the transcripts of these processes with open eyes, and he himself will understand, for there it was said almost in plain text ...
