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.
It is desirable to have at least one responsible Communist on the commission.
V. Ulyanov (Lenin)
 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.
