  RUSNET :: Encyclopedia :: C :: CPSU
The Communist Party of the Soviet Union arose from the Bolshevik wing of the Russian Social Democratic Workers' Party (RSDWP).
In 1918, when the Bolsheviks became the ruling party of Russia, they changed their organisation's name to the All-Russian Communist Party; it was renamed the All-Union Communist Party in 1925 after the founding of the USSR and finally to the Communist Party of the Soviet Union in 1952.
Constitutionally, the Soviet government and the CPSU were separate bodies, but virtually all high government officials were party members, and it was this system of interlocking dual membership in party and governmental bodies that enabled the CPSU to both make policy and see that it was enforced by the government.

Soviet ambitions in China as early as 1921 were to transform all northern China — Sinkiang, Mongolia and Manchuria — into outright Russian dependencies and to convert what remained of China into a Communist satellite.

The Party saw that the hollow speeches of these gentry were in reality meant for their supporters outside the congress, to serve as a lesson to them in duplicity, and a call to them not to lay down their arms.
However, the Party did not yet know or suspect that while these gentry were making their cloying speeches at the congress they were hatching a villainous plot against the life of S. Kirov.

The General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (First Secretary in 1953-1966) was the title synonymous with leader of the Soviet Union after Lenin's death in 1924.
However, the access to and authority over the party bureaucracy which accrued to the position allowed Stalin to increase his power during Lenin's illness and particularly after his death.
Once Stalin came to dominate the Politburo, the position of General Secretary became synonymous with that of party leader and de facto ruler of the USSR.
