Transcript counter-revolutionary organisations by bribes.

The nuclei in the People's Commissariat were led and given organisational aid by the corresponding members of the ' All-Union Bureau ' representing the given nuclei in this Bureau. I know of the following central nuclei in Moscow: In the State Planning Commission (leader Gromann), in the Supreme Economic Council of the Union (Ginsburg, Sokolovsky, Stern), in the Trade 36
