Transcript this, and on the day of my departure he gave me a letter in an envelope without an address, saying that it was from ' political friends of Sher and Gromann.' I assumed that the letter was from the foreign centre of the Mensheviks. I made a pencilled note on the edge of the envelope, ' V.V.- V.G.,' took it with me to Moscow, and gave it soon after my return to Sher, in the Finance Commissariat, I think " .... (Statement, December 5th, 1930.) Petunin's statement on this point, finally, is as follows :— " Before the ' All-Union Bureau ' was founded and connections abroad established, I knew of the existence of Menshevist organisations in Centrosoyus, originating in the State Bank in 1925; I heard of these last from Sher at the end of 1926. Besides this, an initiatory group was formed around Sher, Gromann and Ginsburg in 1926. Petunin, Gladyshev, and Schweitzer were members of the Menshevist organisation in Centrosoyus, the basis of the association being formed by the reading of the ' Socialist Messenger,' which Gladyshev obtained. At this time the organisation did not do any other work, nothing of an active nature. ..." " It was not until later that I heard of the existence of Menshevist nuclei in the State Planning Commission, in the Supreme Economic Council, and in the Commissariat for Trade. " Communication was established with the organisation of the R.S.D.L.P. abroad in 1925 through the agency of Berlatsky, who conveyed to Sher the commission to act as the representative in the Soviet Union of the Menshevist organisation abroad. . . . Contact with this organisation was consolidated further by my journey to Germany in 1927. When undertaking this journey I was commissioned by Sher to meet Dan; I fulfilled this commission and at the end of 1927 I conveyed to Sher the directions sent him, in his capacity of representative, by the organisation of the R.S.D.L.P., with respect to two definite questions : 1. The giving of support to the Trotskyists in their struggle against the C.P.S.U., and 2, the organisation of sabotage work in the economic life of the country and the formation of sabotage organisations with the participation of the members of the Russion Social Democratic Labour Party. At the same time, Dan commissioned me to inform Sher that both party and sabotage work would be financed by the organisation abroad." (Statement made February 19th, 1931.) 15
