Comrade Chicherin,

It is necessary:

1) To put before the C.C. another draft of a precise decision: the C.C. prohibits acting in such-and-such a way, and demands so-and-so.

2) To lodge a protest against each violation concretely.

3) To put through the C.C. the appointment of a responsible person (not a very “high” one).

Otherwise the result is nothing but grousing.



[1] Written on a memorandum from Chicherin, who gave factual data on the violation by editors of Petrograd newspapers of the __PRINTERS_P_555_COMMENT__ 18*   regulations with regard to the publication of materials about the international situation and foreign policy.
