(Enclose the Siberian telegram on the census and Popov’s comment.)
I suggest collecting the votes of the Politbureau members today, by telephone, for a decision such as the following:
the census in Siberia to be definitely carried out simultaneously with Russia; moreover, in place of the dubious local people suspected of supporting the Kolchak regime, workers to be called in from the famine-stricken gubernias of Russia.
If they do not agree, the Politbureau is to be called tomorrow, 5.VI, in the morning. Less than 1,000 workers are needed. They can easily be transported and will be of great use.
