Comrades Rykov and Tsyurupa
I request you to call a conference of deputy commissars this very day to work out practical and most vigorous measures for getting the Kashira Station to start supplying electric current to Moscow. It is quite an intolerable outrage when a ready station, with all the lines strung up, is unable to supply the current because of our administrative muddle.
 On April 21, 1922, the C.L.D., having recognised “the need, in the interests of supplying electric power to Moscow, to have the Kashira Power Station switched into Moscow’s general power supply system as soon as possible”, instructed the Supreme Council for Transportation and the People’s Commissariat for Railways urgently to provide the Kashira Power Station with fuel to ensure its uninterrupted operation (Central Party Archives of the Institute of Marxism-Leninism of the C.P.S.U. Central Committee). See Collected Works, fifth (Russian) Edition, Vol. 54, Document 92.
