Transcript reduced possibilities were calculated with regard to the material and financial resources. . . . " The aim of sabotage work with regard to the food supply was to reduce supplies. This was done particularly with regard to the Astrakhan fisheries of Centrosoyus. The development of these fisheries was hindered on the pretext that they were not profitable. Schweizer was directly in charge of this work. With regard to the price policy in respect of foodstuffs, the aim of the work was to cause an increase of prices, which would lead to the non- fulfilment of the instructions of the government for the increase of real wages.

" All this led to the formation of commodity stores (for instance, in northern Caucasia in the spring of this year) to the reduction of the manoeuvring capacity on the commodity front, and to a general hindrance to commodity circulation as a whole and the means of this 50
