Soldiers, commanders, commissars!
The White Guard regiments of the new autocrat, Kolchak, have set themselves the task of destroying your army and opening a road for themselves to Kazan.
Thereby, a great and honourable task has been entrusted to your army: to give a ruthless rebuff to the enemy of working people’s Russia, the hireling of the American capitalists. Your army has already rendered great services to the Soviet Republic. I do not doubt that, this time too, each one of you and all of you together will prove worthy of your task. All Workers’ and Peasants’ Russia looks to you with hope and confidence.
Second Army, close your ranks!
Death and destruction to the bourgeois and landlord bands!
Death and destruction to the Kolchakite autocracy.
Death and destruction to the foreign imperialists!
Long live the Red Second Army!
Long live Workers’ and Peasants’ Russia!
