Transcript In Centrosoyus. One of the organisers of sabotage work in Centrosoyus (the Central Co-operative Association), Petunin, described the development and activity of the sabotage group in Centrosoyus as follows : " In carrying out the sabotage directions of the R.S.D.L.P. in Centrosoyus, I utilised my position as a member of the Board of Directors. Under the conditions which existed in the apparatus, this offered great possibilities of work .... " The organisation of the group took place at a session at the end of 1927 or the beginning of 1928 (probably the latter) in the home of Nekrassov on the first floor of the corner house of Deneshny and Glasgovsky streets.
