To Comrade Molotov with a request to circulate it among all members of the Politbureau.
It is necessary (1) to find out who is “Kurzhnir”?
Could he be Kushner, the author of the pamphlet on electrification?
(2) There is need to devote more attention to Myasnikov’s agitation, and report about him and about it to the Politbureau twice a month.
(3) The Politbureau should have a special discussion on how to respond to this letter.
 Written on a copy of G. I. Myasnikov’s letter to engineer B. A. Kurzhner, a Party member in Petrograd, in which Myasnikov proposed to intensify, in connection with the forthcoming Eleventh Congress of the R.C.P.(B.), subversive activity against the Party’s policy.
The Politbureau of the R.C.P.(B.) Central Committee discussed G. I. Myasnikov’s case at several of its sittings, and on February 20, 1922, approved the proposal of a Politbureau commission to expel him from the Party for gross breach of Party discipline and anti-Party activity.
