It is a downright invention to say that Frederik Str\"om, allegedly contrary to the wishes of the Russians, had prevented a representative of Socialdemokraten{1} from attending the conference. To Str\"om’s question, Lenin replied:

We have absolutely no trust in Mr. Branting. If you have trust in him, you are free to invite his representative.
