Revolutionary Military Council 10
Chairman of the Gubernia Executive Committee
Copy to Revolutionary Military Council, Southern Front
I have been watching with joy the heroism of the 10th Army and the Tsaritsyn proletariat in the defence of Tsaritsyn. I am sure that Red Tsaritsyn, which has withstood winter sieges lasting many months, will withstand all trials now as well. Greetings to the defenders of Red Tsaritsyn! The promised reinforcements are on the way.
Chairman, Council of People’s Commissars
