Out of these 22 "Sovnarkom" members, Wilton summed up, there were three Russians, one Georgian, one Armenian, and 17 Jews.
The Central Executive Committee, Wilton continues, was made up of the following members:
|Y.M. Sverdlov (Solomon) (Chairman)||Jew|
|L. Bronstein (Trotsky)||Jew|
Thus, concluded Wilton, out of 61 members, five were Russians, six were Latvians, one was a German, two were Armenians, one was a Czech, one was an Imeretian, two were Georgians, one was a Karaim, one was Ukrainian, and 41 were Jews.
The Extraordinary Commission of Moscow (Cheka)--the Soviet secret police and predecessor of the GPU, the NKVD, and the KGB--was made up of the following:
|F. Dzerzhinsky (Chairman)||Pole|
|Y. Peters (Deputy Chairman)||Latvian|
|J. Blumkin (Count Mirbach's assassin)||Jew|
|Alexandrovitch (Blumkin's accomplice)||Russian|
Of these 36 Cheka officals, one was a Pole, one a German, one an Armenian, two were Russians, eight were Latvians, and 23 were Jews. "Accordingly," Wilton sums up, "there is no reason to be surprised at the preponderant role of Jews in the assassination of the Imperial family. It is rather the opposite that would have been surprising."
