I have been informed that the trip abroad by Grigory Semyonovich Petrov, a chemist and an inventor, is being, impeded.
Petrov has a mandate from the People’s Commissariat for Foreign Trade, signed by Voikov, dated 29/III–1921, No. 1554 (A) 012.
There is a decision by the committee for assessing inventions of 9/II-1921, awarding Petrov a prize of 15 million rubles, etc. (signed by Mikhailovsky).
I request the P.C.F.A. and the All-Russia Cheka to issue instructions to let him go abroad at once. If there are any obstacles to this, please inform me right away.
V. Ulyanov (Lenin)
Chairman, Council of People’s Commissars
