The People’s Commissariat for Foreign Trade shall be instructed to make arrangements with the People’s Commissariat for State Control and the Vecheka for combating hoarders of stocks and goods likely to serve, among other things, as exportable merchandise.
 This draft was adopted at the meeting of the C.P.C. on March 2, 1920, during the discussion of Krasin’s report on the question of foreign trade. It is connected with Point 17 of the theses on foreign trade, reading: “A commission consisting of representatives from the Commissariat for Foreign Trade, State Control and the Vecheka shall be set up to ascertain and reserve the Republic’s stocks of commodities suitable for foreign trade“ (Central Party Archives, Institute of Marxism-Leninism of the C.C., C.P.S.U.).
