I agree with Bryukhanov.
I propose a vote: suspend the work of the commission. This is a game of commissions.
 A reference to the commission of representatives of the All-Russia C.E.C. of the R.S.F.S.R. and the C.E.C. of the Ukrainian S.S.R., with the participation of representatives from the People’s Commissariat for Food of the R.S.F.S.R. and the People’s Commissariat for Food of the Ukraine, set up to inquire into the slate of food supply work in the Ukraine. Objecting to the formation of this commission, N. P. Bryukhanov wrote to Lenin: “It is not likely that, the commission will propose any new measures. But there is no doubt at all that it will divert some of the food workers’ energy and attention from the fulfilment of their work, which is urgent and brooks no delay” (Central Party Archives of the Institute of Marxism-Leninism of the C.P.S.U. Central Committee).
