Bandits have seized the Boldyrev (Rasskazovo) factories (Tambov Gubernia).
It is an absolute scandal.
I propose that the Chekists (and the Gubernia Executive Committee people) of Tambov Gubernia who were caught off their guard
1) be court-martialled,
2) that Kornev be severely reprimanded,
3) that extremely energetic people be sent there at once,
4) that a severe trimming and instructions be given by telegraph.
