At this point it must have been obvious to many within the MEI, including its director Ryazanov, that their time at the institute was coming to an end. ” In a next step the Central Committee of the AUCP(b) sent “trustworthy” party members to the MEI in order to change its “right-wing” political line from the inside. However, in 1931, the leadership of the Soviet Union finally seized the time to use peaceful methods to bring the MEI under its direct control. This “island of persistent resistance within the ocean of social-sciences,” as Rokityanskii (2001) calls the Ryazanov Institute, could only be conquered by getting rid of its director completely.

Or did he have other propaganda projects on his mind? The view that Ryazanov had a significant share in the editorial preparations of volume I/5 of MEGA1, and that Adoratskii had done relatively little, is not shared by Koltan (2002: 134) and other commentators. However, what would substantiate this thesis? Rokityanskii maintained that Adoratskii “privatized” many projects that Ryazanov had been working on earlier. Manuscripts that were waiting for publication were later on simply published under Adoratskii’s name, while the names of other contributors were not mentioned anymore.

The first document, by Ryazanov himself, was published as a “Vorwort zur Gesamtausgabe” (Preface to the complete edition) in the first volume of MEGA1 in 1927. In his preface, Ryazanov provided a short overview of the contents of the first volume and, furthermore, informed the reader about the planned sequence of future editions. The first and second volumes (in “Division I”) of the “historical-critical” MEGA1 edition were supposed to contain works and manuscripts up to the Deutsch-Französische Jahrbücher (German-French Annals) of 1844.
