Borodin, Mikhail (Markovich)

Borodin, Mikhail (Markovich)
orig. Mikhail Gruzenberg

born July 9, 1884, Yanovichi, Russia
died May 29, 1951, Siberia

Russian diplomat.

He joined the Bolshevik faction in 1903, was arrested (1906), and lived in exile in the U.S. He returned to Russia in 1917 and in 1923 was sent to China as an adviser to Sun Yat-sen. There he built the loosely structured Nationalist Party (Guomindang) into a highly centralized Leninist-style organization and helped the Chinese Nationalists develop their army. After leaving China (1927), he served as deputy director of the Tass news agency and editor of the Moscow Daily News (1932–49). He was arrested in a Stalinist purge of Jewish intellectuals and died in a Siberian labour camp.
