Comrade Bryukhanov, People’s Commissariat for Food
Copy to Comrade Smolyaninov
There must be a speed-up in the shipment of sacks for Comrade Vladimirov, Ukraine’s People’s Commissar for Food, and also the shipment of goods for the Ukrainian commodity exchange fund. Please notify me of your subsequent instructions. Give me exact information today, and keep me informed daily, formally and in writing, about what is being actually done. This is Bryukhanov’s personal responsibility. Appoint persons responsible for detailed measures.
 The following text is in Lenin’s hand.—Ed.
 Written in connection with a complaint of the People’s Commissar for Food of the Ukraine, M. K. Vladimirov, over the unsatisfactory supply of the Ukraine with goods and the lack of sacks which slowed down the procurement of grain in the Ukraine.
On June 1, a telegram signed by Lenin was sent to Vyazniki (Shuya Uyezd, Ivanovo-Voznesensk Gubernia) on the dispatch of 500,000 food sacks to the Ukraine by uyezd factories within a week.
