Draft Resolution for the C.C., R.S.D.L.P.(B.), following an anonymous accusation concerning Y. S. Hanecki.
The C.C. establishes the principle:
that in all squabbles and personal accusations, the person who makes such accusations without bringing specific charges before a court shall be considered a slanderer;
that those who consider themselves affected by such accusations shall be invited to take legal action.
 This draft was written by Lenin following an anonymous accusation to the effect that Y. S. Hanecki had been in the employ of a German commercial firm. For Lenin’s letter on this question to the C.C. of the R.S.D.L.P.(B.) see Collected Works, Fifth Russian Edition, Vol. 50, pp. 14-16
