Comrade Tsyurupa or his deputy
The bearers are comrades from the Maltsev factories (about 20,000 workers, about 100,000 in their district). The food situation is catastrophic.
Please hear them out and
(1) take urgent measures to help them at once, at least to a minimum extent, but help immediately;
(2) draw representatives of the Maltsev district into the Narrow Food Council;
(3) make efforts to organise detachments of the Maltsev workers.
V. Ulyanov (Lenin)
