Komsomol on the world stage

A former member of the communist youth organization Freie Deutsche Jugend, Angela Merkel, lobbied for the release of another former communist youth organization member, Mikhail Khodorkovsky. A former colonel of the KGB, Vladimir Putin, released Komsomol member Khodorkovsky couple of days ago. The West has not learned the rules of the Soviet/Russian spectacles yet.

Communist youth organizations members were to become future leaders. There was no such thing as being simultaneously a democrat and a member of the communist youth.
