Transcript correctness of this information, and utilised K. G. Petunin's journey abroad for this purpose. I gave him the password for a meeting with Dan : ' Peter Petrovich is well and everything is going on favourably.' I asked at the same time for information on his (party) work in Centrosoyus. When Petunin returned from abroad, he reported that he had met Dan in a cafe and that at this meeting he had been helped by Shurygin, who was employed in the Centrosoyus agency in Berlin. The reply which Dan sent me through Petunin was equally definite in advocating disorganising work, and Dan left the matter of practical information in my hands. After this, which must have been about the end of 1927, I, too, adopted this standpoint, and began to issue directions accordingly and to carry out these directions myself in my work in the State Bank. . .■" The final organisation of the centre of the Menshevik organisation in the Soviet Union, according to Sher's statements, took place, however, somewhat later, in 1928, after another journey abroad, undertaken by a member of the Working Peasants' Party, Yurovsky, who brought back with him both oral and written approval of the formation of such a centre.

(Statement made November 30th, 1930.) Questioned on this point, Yurovsky made the following statement :— " When travelling from Moscow to Paris, I spent a few days in Berlin, where I met Professor V. V. Leontiev. In the course of conversation with him I learnt that he had been living in Berlin since 1926 or the beginning of 1927, and that he was meeting White emigres, especially the Mensheviks—Abramovitch, Dalin, and, it appeared, Dan. . . .
