Here is another shocking report. Communism never fell. The Collapse of Communism: The Untold Story, a documentary — and book based on the documentary — are subjects of this Blog. See Blog 191 for a 2012 interview with Robert Buchar, maker of the documentary and author of the book.
You can see a 5-minute trailer of the documentary at: http://www.collapseofcommunism.com/wmatrailer.html
Note: The companion book to this DVD is: And Reality Be Damned…Undoing America: What media didn’t tell you about the end of the Cold War and the fall of communism in Europe, by Robert Buchar. http://www.collapseofcommunism.com/book.html
Many of the people who spoke and are quoted in the documentary “The Collapse of Communism….”, came from: “KGB defectors, dissidents, former CIA officials, and documents from secret files of KGB and the Gorbachev’s Library.”
This documentary speaks for itself. It presents information about what has really been going on with Russian Communism. It helps explain what we are witnessing in our country today.
The KGB took over, and hand-picked Russian leader Vladimir Putin (who is third-generation KGB), to rule Russia. As we have seen, Putin has continued toward their goal — destruction of the United States, and conquest of the world.
Following the link to the DVD movie trailer below is: 1) a report about the documentary from the www.collapseofcommunism.com website, and 2) a message from the author of the documentary (Robert Buchar).

The Collapse of Communism: The Untold Story
The Collapse of Communism: The Untold Story is a feature-length documentary film.
The great political upheaval of the late 20th century–the fall of communism in Eastern Europe and the collapse of the Soviet Union–is now generally regarded as the spontaneous product of long-accumulating social and economic pressures. The political confusion and economic disarray that followed is seen as nothing more than a passing phase in an inevitable march toward a more perfect democracy.
During the final phase of the Cold War the Soviet Union, under its dogmatic and visibly senile party bosses, was sinking into near-bankruptcy. Yuri Andropov, Chairman of the KGB, the only organization with both a full knowledge of the state of the economy and a mastery of strategic decisions, came to the conclusion that there was no cure for the grave illness of the communist system. To preserve the wealth that threatened to slip out of the leaders’ hands, he masterminded a nearly unthinkable program, throwing into the fire Moscow’s rule over the Eastern European bloc, and, as it turned out, the ruling party of the USSR itself. Though Andropov died in 1984, the signs of his hand in the events that followed remain visible, as well as the role of his handpicked successor Mikhail Gorbachev. Our witnesses testify that what appeared to be a spontaneous freedom movement in 1989 was in fact a coup d’etat orchestrated from Moscow in offices of the Russian KGB.
Perhaps for the first time in known history, we have walked through a revolution without realizing who are the real winners and losers.
The consequences are far reaching and people in the West seem to have a short memory. It’s clear today that development in Russia didn’t go the way the West anticipated. Russia became the perfect KGB state. 80% of government officials are former or active KGB officers, including President Vladimir Putin himself. The objective of the Soviet regime was to overthrow the United States as the world’s leading power. The Soviet KGB fathered state-sponsored terrorism. The PLO was dreamt up by KGB. In 1960s a new element was added to the Soviet/PLO war; international terrorism. Today’s international terrorism was conceived at the Lubyanka.
As Yuri Andropov once explained to Ion Pacepa, the Muslim world was a Petri dish in which the Russians might “nurture a virulent strain of America-hatred from the bacterium of Marxist-Leninist thought.” KGB General Alexander Sakharovsky once said to Pacepa: “In today’s world, when nuclear arms have made military force obsolete, terrorism should become our main weapon.” Americans and Europeans no longer remember the past and don’t realize that history is now repeating itself. No effective counter-strategy is likely to emerge from Washington because a regime predicated on economic optimism cannot accept the negative implications of ongoing Russian enmity. People will simply believe what they wish to believe. More people indulge their own ideas of the world rather than deal with its realities.
FROM THE MAKER OF The Collapse of Communism: The Untold Story
Being myself the political refugee from Czechoslovakia the story of the fall of communism in Europe became quite personal to me. When I defected to the US in 1980 I was aware that a change is in making and results will be not acceptable to me. I just didn’t believe it would happen so soon. When the collapse started I didn’t pay too much attention to it being busy with starting over my new life in the United States. However, later after dust settled down and I focused my attention on what actually happened, I was amazed how bizarre the whole stunt was. I realized that the collapse of the communism in Europe is one of the most incredible stories of the century and the public should know what really happened.
When I discussed this topic in Prague with the former dissident and political prisoner Petr Cibulka back in 2002, he said to me: “If you are not going to make this film, nobody else ever will.” His remark was pivotal in my decision to make this documentary. Using the old contacts from my previous life in Prague and tapping into resources in the US I started the long, rocky journey to tell this story — a story that nobody wants to hear. I collected an unprecedented body of interviews that, when edited together, paints the big picture of what really happened.
KGB defectors, dissidents, former CIA officials, and documents from secret files of KGB and the Gorbachev’s Library speak for itself. You may not believe what you will hear. But everyone should be aware of what these people have to say and take it into consideration. After all it may be useful for you to find out who framed Roger Rabbit. Because what happened yesterday helps us understand what is happening today and what may happen tomorrow.
