It is the source for an alleged quote from Leon Trotsky whose source claims to be from the memoirs of Aron Simanovitch,[5] Rasputin's secretary.

“The main ally of Lenin, Bronstein-Trotsky did not hesitate at all to talk about plans and goals, We must turn Russia into a desert inhabited by white negros, whom we will give such a tyranny that the most terrible despots of the East never dreamed of. The only difference is that this tyranny will not be on the right, but on the left, and not white, but red. In the literal sense of the word, red, for we will shed such streams of blood, before which all the human losses of capitalist wars will shudder and pale. The largest bankers overseas will work closely with us. If we win the revolution, crush Russia, then on its burial debris we will strengthen the power of Zionism and become such a force before which the whole world will kneel. We will show you what real power is. By terror blood baths, we will bring the Russian intelligentsia to complete dullness, to idiocy, to an animal state ... "
