I don't think so, Michael. He saw the Soviet Union as a beachhead for
the world revolution in contrast to Stalin who began to look inwards.
At the very time the USSR was in full swing with the NEP, the Soviet
Union was sending Comintern agents to help the German Communists
overthrow the government. Of course, this backfired on them but
that's another story altogether. Perhaps the best analogy is with
Cuba during the OLAS years, in more ways than one unfortunately.
