In view of the extreme urgency of the question of measures to combat the drought, please at once call a conference of representatives of the People’s Commissariats concerned, so as to have a draft decree tabled, in elaborated and agreed form, at the Council of Labour and Defence not later than Wednesday, 27.IV.1921.

V. Ulyanov (Lenin)
Chairman, C.L.D.


[1] On April 27, 1921, the C.L.D. discussed a draft decision on measures to combat the drought, tabled by Deputy People’s Commissar for Agriculture I. A. Teodorovich. The three general points of the draft decision were adopted, it being decided that the other points, relating to concrete practical measures, should be immediately discussed with the departments concerned, and approved at the next C.L.D. sitting. On April 29, the C.L.D. adopted the whole decision. Us first point emphasised: “To recognise the struggle against the drought as being of primary importance for the country’s agricultural life and measures taken in that direction as highly urgent” (Izvestia VTsIK No. 95, May 5, 1921).
