Comrades Tsyurupa and Panyushkin
From Panyushkin’s report it is evident that he is working splendidly, but is incredibly squandering his energies, taking on a hundred things at once.
This is impermissible.
Panyushkin must be given a strictly defined, precise assignment, laid down in writing:
(1) to seize and requisition all grain surpluses from the kulaks and the rich of the whole Tula Gubernia;
(2) to dispatch all this grain immediately to Moscow;
(3) no other fob whatsoever to be undertaken until this assignment has been completely fulfilled.
For carrying out the work use as many motor-lorries as possible.
