Let us know without fail and keep us regularly informed on what trends there are and to what extent they are represented   in the St. Petersburg League generally and its centre in particular, whether there are active and authoritative people, etc. It is imperative for us to be always fully informed on the St. Petersburg League.[2]

Rubinchik, who had been sent from Berlin to arrange for the circulation of Iskra, and also members of the Sotsialist group in St. Petersburg. The group was led by V. P. Nogin until his arrest on October 2, 1901. Contact between the group and the League in St. Petersburg was maintained by S. I. Radchenko. All members of the group were arrested on December 4, 1901.
