Transcript " Kondratiev, who conducted the meeting, declared! that he had called this meeting of the representives of the three groups for the purpose of an exchange of ideas on possible joint action in the struggle against the Soviet power. Kondratiev gave a brief outline and general formulation of the standpoint of his group, described the connections and nuclei existing in the central and provincial organisations of the People's Commissariat, pointed out that, thanks to these circumstances, the possibility existed of exerting influence in the desired direction (i.e.,, in the direction of sabotage) on the drawing up and execution of the plans and measures relating to agriculture, and at the same time referred to the contact with the population which the tens of thousands of agricultural experimental stations ensured.

According to Sukhanov's statement, the question of reciprocal relations and of an understanding with the " Industrial Party "— " . . . . was raised in the spring of 1929.
