From the book <a href="http://oag.ru/library/hodos/js3-3.html">"The Jewish Syndrome" by Eduard Hodos</a>:
"Such of Lenin's utterances as: "Any religious idea, any idea of a deity... is indescribably vile, the foulest contagion" say a lot, don't they? This is how he browbeat Gorkiy for his "god-seeking". Lenin finished his tirade with the words: "devilishly annoying". And it's no accident that in the first years of the Soviet regime a monument to Judas was erected in the city of Sviazhsk. The children's writer Henning Keler, who witnessed the unveiling ceremony of this monument, described it thusly: "The local party functionary debated for a long time to whom the monument should be made. Lucifer was considered to imperfectly embody the idea of communism; Cain was too legendary. So they decided on Judas, as a completely historical figure. He was depicted full-height with his fist raised into the air..."
The breakneck pace with which the Second Khazaria was built was accompanied by a "shock wave" of destruction of Christian shrines. The country's new masters raged on the ruins of demolished churches; "Any religious idea, any idea of a deity..." was beaten out of the brains of the newly "conquered" people; a new era dawned, the era of atheism. The time had come for new "saints", to whom the "foolish Khazars" were to bow down.
Here's how the godless "iconostasis" looked, through the eyes of an unknown artist who produced an "Album of 30 photographs of Bolshevik commissars" entitled "The Ukraine's Butchers" (The captions under the portraits are the original ones given by the artist):

After the civil war, which passed like a destructive cyclone over the whole territory of the conquered Empire and the hungry years of "War Communism" the Second Khazaria's period of prosperity began. The "New Economic Policy" (NEP), which gave rise to a boom in trade and let loose the forces of private enterprise, marked the beginning of the the new state's meteoric rise.
I won't go into detail in describing this period, whose features are well-known, I'm sure, to anyone who knows their history. I'll only mention that NEP in essence completely contradicted the ideals of "freedom, equality and brotherhood", under which the proletarian masses were let into battle by the builders of the "bright future".
