In my opinion, until railway transport is fully restored, this is out of the question.
 Written on a letter from V. V. Kosior, Chairman of the All-Ukraine Council of Trade Unions, who reported on the difficulties of work in the Donets Basin and big industrial centres of the south (Kharkov, Ekaterinoslav, Taganrog, etc.) due to lack of personnel. To strengthen the work he proposed that some of the leading workers of Petrograd and Moscow should be transferred to the Donets Basin for restoring mines, pits, and metallurgical and processing factories.
