Engels on the national question.

Perhaps Engels was the one of the founders of Marxism,who wrote on the national question more than others and laid the basics of the Marxist theory of the national question.And it is important to remember these basics,because nothing thrusts people away from Marxism in Russia, as a vulgarization of the national question on behalf of Marxism.
