People’s Secretary Luganovsky
Today Podvoisky, People’s Commissar for Military Affairs, sent the following telegram to Kudinsky:
“In accordance with the plenary powers given to you, you are to carry out the following: on the territory of the Ukrainian Soviet Republic your activities must be exactly co-ordinated with those of the Ukrainian Soviet authorities, hence your extraordinary plenary powers as regards the subordination of particular organs of power apply exclusively to the gubernias of Bryansk, Smolensk, Vitebsk, Orel, Voronezh and Tula.”
I hope that you will be satisfied with this and that Kudinsky will comply.
Chairman, Council of People’s Commissars
