Why have you not sent from Kursk 4 regiments + Asarkh’s regiment (?)
+ Sluvis’s division?
Delay is disastrous for us on the Czechoslovak front, and you are late!
 In reply to Lenin’s inquiry, Podvoisky, a member of the Supreme Military Council, reported that the units which were to be sent from Kursk to the Eastern Front were still being raised and that a brigade of three regiments with three batteries would be entrained on July 23.
