Please have this map hung up here and on the premises of the Narrow Council and (the rest of the copies) distributed to workers’ clubs in Moscow, but before doing so ask N. P. Gorbunov whether it is possible to have the present boundaries additionally drawn on this map at least in green lines and green shading:
(α) Western “front” (Finland, Estland, Latvia, Poland and Rumania)
(7) Georgia, Azerbaijan, Armenia
(8) Central Asia, Bukhara
(e) Far-Eastern Republic
(C) boundaries of the Far East
all these as they are at present.
 A reference to the “Outline of the Administrative Map of the R.S.F.S.R.” Lenin’s instructions were fulfilled on February 7, 1921. There were two printings of the map in 1921, the first in monochrome, and the second with the additional data and in various colours. Copies of the maps are at the V. I. Lenin State Library of the U.S.S.R.
