Vladimir Konstantinovich Bukovsky, a Russian writer born in 1942 but educated at Cambridge, was a dissident in the Soviet Union of the 1960s and 1970s. Because he exposed the Soviet practice of jailing political prisoners in psychiatric institutions, the young Russian was sentenced to twelve years (1964-1976) in prison, labor camps, and psychiatric wards under the brutal Soviet regime that did not allow any dissenting opinions. He was released to the West in 1976.
After the fall of the Soviet empire, the Russian government invited him in 1992 to testify against the criminal actions of the Soviet Communist Party. According to Paul Belien, who interviewed Bukovsky in 2006, in order to "prepare for his testimony, Bukovsky was granted access to a large number of documents from Soviet secret archives. He is one of the few people ever to have seen these documents because they are still classified. Using a small handheld scanner and a laptop computer, however, he managed to copy many documents (some with high security clearance), including KGB reports to the Soviet government."
The documents Bukovsky was able to read and copy, allegedly confirm "the existence of a 'conspiracy' to turn the European Union into a socialist organiz
There are no Soviet style Gulags in the EU but "political gulags" called political correctness. PC stifles freedom of speech installing a self-imposed gulag in which you are not allowed to speak of race, of ideology, to criticize Islam or the massive influx of illegal immigrants and refugees.
How did the European Union come to be? In his opinion, the turning point occurred in 1985-86 when the Italian communists and German Social-Democrats visited Gorbachev complaining about the onslaught of 'wild capitalism.' The left-wing parties of the West feared the loss of influence and prestige to capitalism which coincided with the communists' fear. To avert this evil, they decided to "introduce the same socialist goals in all countries at once."
"The Soviets came to a conclusion and to an agreement with the left-wing parties that, if they worked together, they could hijack the whole European project and turn it upside down. Instead of the open market, they would turn it into a federal state."
Bukovsky described, in his interview with Paul Belien, a meeting that took place in January 1989 between Gorbachev and a delegation of the Trilateral Commission composed of the former Japanese Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakasone, French President Valery Giscard d'Estaing, American banker David Rockefeller, and former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. The goal was to convince Gorbachev to "integrate Russia into the financial institutions of the world, such as GATT, the IMF, and the World Bank."
