The Comintern Dissolved

Goebbel’s “Bolshevic Bogy” Robbed of its Sting

Russia Closer To the Allies

Washington. Hints at Likely Meeting with Stalin

It was announced in Moscow yesterday that the Comintern, the international Communist organisation otherwise known as the Third International, has been dissolved.

The first implication of the dissolution is to rob Goebbels’s “Bolshevik bogy” of its sting, but it has deeper significance. Messages from Washington last night suggested it is the first of a series of Russo-British-U.S. moves preceding a meeting of Mr. Churchill, President Roosevelt, and Mr. Stalin.

“One of the prime motives behind the dissolution,” cables the B.U.P. correspondent in Moscow, “is the desire to facilitate closer co-operation between Russia, Britain, and the United States after the war as well as at present, and perhaps to achieve some form of post-war collective security.”

The resolution bringing the Comintern to an end stressed the necessity of eliminating inter-labour factional strife in the interests of all-out support for the Allied war effort. All national Communist parties were urged to concentrate on the war of liberation from Fascism.
