Soviet of Deputies
Copy to Smilga, C.C. member
I have received a complaint from Stanislaw Palinski, an old Polish revolutionary who is recommended by Steklov. Palinski has been arrested at the Berezniki soda works, Verkhstiya post-station, Perm Gubernia, on a charge of counter-revolutionary activity and sympathy for the Czechoslovaks.
Palinski writes that the Legal Commission of the Usolye Uyezd Soviet found nothing criminal in his actions.
I urgently request you to carry out a strict check and impartial examination of the matter, and allow Palinski passage to Poland.
Chairman, Council of People’s Commissars
