Lenin, Chairman of the Council of People’s Commissars

The position in the Don as regards food organisation is impossible. The Don food agencies have boon set up on paper, but the appointed food officials are working in the Tambov and Saratov gubernias, and not where they should be. The district food agencies, set up in amateur fashion and not connected with the Don Executive Committee, are receiving no directives and instructions, and for that reason are not capable of working, and cannot counteract the army food agents who frequently commit outrageous excesses.

Deputy Chairman, Don Executive Committee
