Transcript According to his evidence, Sukhanov took part in from twenty to twenty-two sessions, and at no less than ten of these sessions the tactical attitude and the practical instructions for sabotage work in connection with the approaching intervention were discussed. Sukhanov gave the following example for the way in which the concrete forms and methods of the sabotage work were dealt with : " The grain difficulties in the spring of 1929 were the occasion for raising the question of the balance for the future grain purchase campaign, with a view to lowering as far as possible the grain purchase plans for the coming year (1929-30). The instructions in question were forwarded to the State Central Administration to be carried out. Gromann undertook to carry them out in connection with persons, some of whom were members of the R.S.D.L.P. and some of whom were not, but who were in agreement with the organisation in this question (Kond- ratiev, Oganovsky and Selinger)." Sukhanov declared further : " This measure brought no desirable results. In August, 1929, the sabotage activity in this question was exposed. The Committee of Experts of the State Central Administration was dissolved and a new committee formed. The grain purchase plans were increased by about a third and carried out successfully on time. ..." (Statement of January 22nd, 1931.) From all this it can be seen that the practical sabotage activity of the All-Union Bureau as the leading organ was carried out systematically and on a wide scale, and that its role as a sabotage centre which had penetrated fairly deeply into the leading planning organs of the Soviet Union may be compared with the corresponding centre of the Industrial Party for sabotage to undermine the planned constructive work in the various branches of industry. Sukhanov also gives an extremely important piece of evidence concerning the question of the role played by the foreign delegation in the sabotage work and the preparation for an intervention. He reveals the direct and leading role of the foreign delegation in this question. He declares : " In one of the first discussions I drew attention to a document which was lying before Sher, and which looked like a normal letter written in close writing on paper of large format. The letter began, « Dear Comrades,' and had, if I remember rightly, no signature. In one corner of the paper was written ' Foreign Delegation ' in blue 27
