Transcript " I conducted concrete sabotage activity in the Trad©' Commissariat in the second half of 1927 and at the beginning of 1928 with regard to the distribution of industrial commodities of which there was a shortage at i the time, and later, during the course of 1928 and 1929 with regard to the organisation of trade. . . . The plans- included textile goods (cotton, wool, finished clothing),, leather, boots and shoes and metal goods (lead roofing, zinc-iron, etc.). According to the plans for the last quarter of the economic year 1926/27, and the first and second quarters of the year 1927/28, I distributed the above- mentioned industrial commodities in such a fashion that much too little was available for the use of the urban working population in comparison with what the industrial centres could have supplied from the existing stores^ Further, the despatch of the goods to the various districts was not carried out in accordance with the tempo of the supply of agricultural products, above all, grain, as provided for. Further difficulties in the way of the carrying out of the plans were to be created by supplying the co-operatives with goods not in accordance with their needs, and by causing a lack of proportion between their stores and the finances granted to them, and their actual needs. The aim of this sabotage was to cause considerable discontent amongst the working masses, but this aim was not successful. Similarly, the expected effects on the Soviet government also did not materialise.

However, sabotage work in this field was continued with the same methods which I had adopted. The only difference was that it was now adapted to the new tasks which the All-Union Bureau had set, i.e., the preparation of a counter-revolutionary coup d'etat. In my new position as Vice-Chairman of the Economic Administration of the People's Commissariat for Trade, I worked to delay the economic investigations into the state of private trade in the villages and to prevent the drawing-up of statistical material which resulted from the investigations. In this way I rendered it more difficult to work out concrete measures for the systematic elbowing-out of private trading in the villages by the Socialist sector. (Statement of February 20th, 1931.) In his statement of December 17th 1930, Yakubovitch describes a few of the methods of the sabotage work : " In the textile industry, sabotage work was carried out in the following forms and set itself the following tasks : 53
