Comrade Nikolayev
People’s Commissariat for Posts and Telegraphs

I propose that you urgently appoint a commission of three radio specialists to carry out the final trials of the results achieved at the laboratory in Bogorodskoye Village, of which you are aware.[1]

It is desirable to have at least one responsible Communist on the commission.

V. Ulyanov (Lenin)
Chairman, C.P.C.


[1] A reference to S. I. Botin’s experiment in the remote control of powder explosions in 1920 and 1921. In October 1921, a specialists’ commission gave a negative opinion on his trials and proposed that they should be stopped because, of inadequate preparation. See present edition, Vol. 36, p. 526; Vol. 44, Documents 623, 630, 721 and 740; Collected Works, Fifth (Russian) Edition, Vol. 51, Documents 477 and 532.
