The Congress had determined the priority directions of the work, in particular ideological, propaganda and publicist activity with accent on the explanatory work among the wide masses of citizens to counterbalance the narrow-directed polemics inside the left movement. This approach would be promoting the decision of the chosen magistral task having allowed to give answers to the most sharp and actual questions of our life from the Marxist point of view in an accessible form. Besides that, some practical steps of the Central Committee in that direction were outlined.

<@subeheader>On the attitude of the RCYL(b) to the Russian United Labour Front (ROT-Front)
The project of the ROT-Front launched three years ago, has been called to ensure the unification of the advanced class and progressive forces in the struggle for common interests. Like any living, acting organisation, for this time it had suffered certain successes and failures, successfully decided some domestic problems, clearly determined its ideological and political positions. The ROT-Front has been executing its task on the unification of all the most advanced and progressive forces having existed in the communist and labour movement of Russia.
For the time having gone from the moment of the project`s start the Front has been grown strong politically and organisationally, succeeded in displaying itself both in the mass protests and out of them, and lastly had recently got the official registration. Thus all the participants of the Front can state with pride — it had become impossible not to consider us, and this fact is recognized even in the lofty authority`s studies. The voice of our proletarian class has been sounding louder and louder over Russia and it is having been embodied both in public measures and in the less visible but no less necessary daily work in labour collectives, in the points of the highest social strain, on the formaton of alternative mass-media that would express the positions of Russia`s workers but not of their oppressors, etc.
The RCYL(b) being a Marxist revolutionary organization considers that only organized proletariat is able to not only stand upon its current interests but also to come out as the vanguard in the struggle against stagnancy, obscurantism, backwardness, reactionary and fascist forces, for social and technical progress, and, ultimately, for socialism — sensiblely and justly organized society. And only being an organized mass proletarian party our class would be able to achieve the victory having done its great historical mission and released itself and the whole humanity of the horrors of capitalist epoch.
In the ROT-Front we see the origin of the force that in not very far persrective will be able to unite separated single fighters, local initiative groups, the Marxist circles, the fighting class trade unions and communist organtsations that stand firmly on the ideological positions of the scientific communism. In short, in the ROT-Front we see the force that will be able to gather at fist all those people who are ready to struggle for their future, for the future of their country and people. And therefore exactly we, the Revolutionary Communist Youth League, express our unconditional support to the ROT-Front and pledge ourselves to assist to its work actively.
