His dilemma was nicely caught by a famous cartoon in Pravda which showed a nervously perspiring Chicherin clutching his forehead in dismay as Gregory Zinoviev, the Comintern's president until 1925, ranted his fiery message to the world. The Comintern, its Executive Committee (ECCI), Presidium and Secretariat had their headquarters in Moscow and were Soviet-dominated through their lifetime. In the early years, the Comintern and its several agencies gave an extra dimension to the conduct of Soviet foreign relations, by means of which the novelty and radical ambitions of the revolution could much more easily be expressed than via the Narkomindel.

In 1935, following the Soviet entry into the League of Nations, the Narkomindel secretariat acquired a four-man section to supervise League questions. 22 The new Foreign Commissar was a founding member of Soviet diplomacy and a splendid example of the cosmopolitan revolutionary intellectual on whom the pre-Stalin Narkomindel relied so heavily. A party member since 1900 and an exile from Russia since 1907, Litvinov had been active in émigré party politics and later was able to boast that he had been arrested in almost all the countries of Europe.

Since 1930, he had been chairman of the Council of People's Commissars (thus the nominal head of the government), and proved himself at all times to be a zealous apparatchik of the new Stalinist order. It was he, for example, who gave the long report on Soviet foreign policy to the seventh Congress of Soviets in January 1935. Emphasizing the nation's growing international weight, he boasted that only three states remained in Europe which still refused to recognize the USSR: the Netherlands, Switzerland, and Portugal.
