Members of the Politbureau
I think we should agree with the Commander-in-Chief, adding: until the armistice becomes an actual fact.
Written on a report from Commander-in-Chief S. S. Kamenev
to the Chairman of the Revolutionary Military Council of the
Republic. He proposed that the armistice with Poland should
be utilised for the speediest rout of Wrangel’s whiteguard forces.
At the end of point 2 of Kamenev’s practical proposals—on
using part of the forces and resources of the Western Front for
military operations in the south of the country “without touching
those of the South-Western Front”—Lenin made an insertion mark =
with a footnote: “Add =
until the armistice becomes an actual fact.”
Under Lenin’s proposal for approving the report of the Commander-in-Chief is a note by Krestinsky: “Agreed. N.K.” and the signatures of Stalin and Bukharin.
