Comrade Sklyansky,

The international situation, particularly Curzon’s proposal (annexation of the Crimea in exchange for a truce with Poland, the Grodno-Byelostok line),[1] demands a furious acceleration of the offensive against Poland.

Is it being done? Everything? Energetically?



[1] This refers to a Note from Lord Curzon, British Foreign Secretary, sent to the Soviet Government on July 11, 1920, from Spa ( Belgium), where a conference of the Entente countries was being held together with representatives of Germany. To the decisions adopted at the Spa conference, Lord Curzon added a proposal that the Soviet Government should conclude an armistice with General Wrangel.
