I have received the telegram concerning the appointment of Falkovsky by you. I insistently ask you to act only in full agreement with Luganovsky and in compliance with his directives as People’s Secretary of the sovereign Ukrainian Republic. If disagreement with him arises, settle it through Skrypnik, Zatonsky, Bosh, in the last resort wire me, but never gainsay Luganovsky. The rich stores of the Rumanian Government must be very strictly guarded so that they can be turned over intact to the Rumanian people after the overthrow of the Rumanian counterrevolution.
