Alexander Alexandrovich Fadiejew (1901-1956) was a Russian writer. His surname is sometimes spelled, Fadayev or Fadeev. He served as the secretary general of the secretariat of the Union of Soviet Writers.
The Moscow Pravda of August 29, 1948 quotes Fadiejew's speech at the World Congress of Intellectuals which was held in Wroclaw (Breslau), Poland, August 25 - 28, 1948. In the speech he stated that Eugene O'Neil, Henry Miller, John Dos Passos, and other American writers were of the "motley literary crew of reaction" of the warmongers. He also went on to state:
- "After the Second World War, the entire world was divided into two camps: the democratic, antifascist, anti-imperialist camp led by the Soviet Union, and the antidemocratic, reactionary, imperialist camp led by the ruling circles of the United States of America."
