Please send this round to the members of the Politbureau and return to me.
I propose this decision for the Politbureau.
The Politbureau impresses upon the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Ukraine that full, 100%, food collections in the Ukraine are of absolutely paramount importance to the R.S.F.S.R. Similarly the delivery to us of 57 million poods. Immediate and energetic measures are to be worked out for achieving this aim and all decisions are to be reported.
Brief fortnightly reports by telephone are to be made on the progress of food collection and delivery to the R.S.F.S.R.
 Lenin’s motion on food work in the Ukraine was adopted by the Politbureau on November 10, 1921.
