The struggle against the Urals Cossacks is dragging out. I do not see any measures taken to finish with this front quickly, despite the fact that I demanded that you concentrate all your attention on this. I inform you that the enemy is gaining strength, using the respite you have given him, and trying to end matters by a truce only. Report at once what measures you have taken to rout the enemy.
