On August 21, 1940, death took one of the central figures of Russian Marxism, unable to stop the creation of a monster, a monster for Russia and not only, Joseph Stalin. On August 20, the sick Leon Trotsky is shot dead by a secret agent of Stalin. He had received blows that would bring his death the next day.

From us Albanians, Leon Trotsky should be remembered and honored, since in 1917, as commissar for foreign affairs, he found in the archives of Tsarist Russia and made public the document of the Secret Treaty of London, signed in April 1915, between Italy, England, France and Russia for the dismemberment of Albania. The document was made public, and Austria even translated it into Albanian, so that every Albanian could become familiar with it, with this shameful act.

We also owe Leon Trotsky gratitude for the denunciation he made in the Russian media of the monstrous Serbian massacres against the innocent Albanian population during the Balkan War.

Leon Trotsky, also known as a collaborator in several important newspapers of this time, in December 1912 finds him as a special envoy of the Russian newspaper "Kievskaja Misl" in Skopje and its surroundings, to do a war reportage. But, found in the middle of an organized massacre of Serbs against the Albanian population, he does not hesitate to write in accusatory tones about what he saw with his own eyes.

The newspaper "Kievskaja Misl", published in Kiev in the Russian language, at that time was the largest and most important newspaper published outside the capital, Moscow. Almost all the best writers of the time wrote about him, starting with the publicist Llunacharski, continuing with the writers Korolenko, Paustovski and Gorky, and ending with politicians like Leon Trotsky and others.

It is known that Leon Trotsky, of Jewish origin, was one of the two main contenders to succeed Lenin after his death. But he lost to Stalin and was then forced to leave the Soviet Union to die in faraway Mexico after an assassination attempt by political opponents. The time that Leon Trotsky brings in his reportage was one of the most difficult for Albanians and their survival.
