A member of Komsomol; derived from the Russian colloquial denotation of the organisation commonly known as Komsomol, which is the shortened form of the full official name Vsesoyuznyi Leninskiy Kommunisticheskiy Soyuz Molodiozhi, VLKSM - Всесоюзный Ленинский Коммунистический Союз Молодёжи, ВЛКСМ - the All-Union Leninist Communistic Union of Youth, operating in the former Soviet Union.

(Context: Dr∙ Barton and his aides helped a foreign student called Buba. In return, indoctrinated with communistic political propaganda during his pre-first-year curriculum, Buba is thanking for this help. He uses soviet-style compliments that sound comical, given Dr∙ Barton's libertarian spirit and liberal attitudes. Source: J∙ Okram - The Mystery of the Rammed Key.)
