STALIN'S HAND IN SPAIN

Stashevsky had no use for dissenters or " Trotskyists" in Russia, and approved the Ogpu method of dealing with them, but he thought that the Ogpu should respect the regular Spanish political parties. Cautiously he intimated that Stalin might perhaps change the Spanish policy of the Ogpu. The "Big Boss" pretended to agree with him, and Stashevsky left the Kremlin quite elated.
Later he had a conference with Marshal Tukhachevsky, in the course of which he called attention to the disgraceful behaviour of the Soviet officials in Spain. This conference caused quite a lot of talk in the inner circle, partly because of Tukhachevsky's already shaken position. The Marshal was fully alive to the need of curbing those who behaved in Spain as though it were a conquered country, but he was already without the authority to discipline them.
Stashevsky and I had several talks. He was awaiting the early fall of Caballero and the rise of Negrin, the man whom he had groomed for the premiership.
" Big fights are ahead of us in Spain," he remarked more than once.
This was plain to those of us who understood Stalin's policy. Stalin had consolidated his successes in the plan to make Spain a dependency of the Kremlin, and was ready for another push forward. The Comintern was fading out of the picture altogether. Berzin now held the reins of the Spanish Army in his hands. Stashevsky had transferred most of the gold reserve from the Bank of Spain to Moscow. The Ogpu machine was going full steam ahead. The whole enterprise had proceeded in accordance with Stalin's instructions: " Stay out of the range of the artillery fire! " We had avoided the risks of an international war, and yet Stalin's goal seemed within grasp.
The one big obstacle in the way was Catalonia.
