No, not exactly, as the charge was most often and most specifically made
against the Bolsheviks themselves; the charge was made in response to
the actions, not of individual Marxists, or groups of Marxists, but the
actions of the working class as a whole, i.e the development and triumph
of the soviets, actions that caught the Bolsheviks by surprise.

Nothing was grafted or imposed upon the Russian workers.
