The Social Democracy of the Kingdom of Poland and Lithuania (SDKPiL) and the Polish Socialist Party – Left (PPS Lewica) – as well as the party which originated as a merger of them – the Communist Workers’ Party of Poland (KPRP) – exposed the idea of revolutionary internationalism in their manifestos. In their programs these parties consequently evolved towards Bolsheviks’ policy of communism, which resulted in disregard for Polish aspirations of independence. Such geopolitical conceptions professed by the radical left led to its alienation on the Polish political arena. This alienation was reinforced by close cooperation of both circles with Russian Bolsheviks. It was clear to the majority of public opinion that all actions undertaken by Polish communists aimed to establish a Soviet government system in the territory on the Wisła river. Trying to fulfill this goal, the Communist Workers’ Party of Poland took some steps to prevent the formation of Polish military forces capable of opposing the Red Army, and, simultaneously, made preparations for installing a “proletarian government” on the ethnically Polish area.
