Copy to Comrade Gorbunov
I have been informed that the lift will not work on September 20, 21 and 22.
This is utterly scandalous. There are people with ailing hearts for whom it is harmful and dangerous to walk up. I have repeatedly ordered to have an eye kept on the lift by appointing a responsible person.
I hereby issue you a strict reprimand, and order you to find out who has been guilty of failure to give a timely warning; let me have again a list of responsible persons and the measures of punishment to be applied to them.
V. Ulyanov (Lenin)
