Mamontov’s principal successes have been due, up to now, to the extreme slowness of our armies’ advance. The result has been: seizure of towns- shooting of workers, destruction of stations and so on. Every hour that we gain saves the lives of thousands of workers and public property worth millions.
I call upon the Commanders, commissars and Red Army men to redouble their efforts Wherever you are, on wheels, on horseback or on foot – forward, without stopping! The Soviet Republic will judge the merit of different units, and of their commanders and commissars, by the speed of their advance. Everyone will be rewarded according to his deserts. Do not allow Mamontov’s thugs to rest, hit them on the back of the head, cut off their baggage-trains, destroy their rear bases!
To the rescue of Voronezh! Forward!
