Transcript of development or a reduced and very limited tempo). My sabotage work took place in the following directions : "1. With regard to the setting up of the Five Year Plan projects. The sabotage work consisted in finding a common denominator for the growth of all branches of production for the period of the Five Year Plan (1927/28 to 1931/32) and to set it considerably lower than necessary and possible, and lower than it afterwards appeared in reality despite our sabotage. For instance, the growth of production for 1927/28 as compared with the previous year was set roundly at 16.3 per cent. lower than the real level possible. In fact, despite our sabotage work it reached from 23 to 24 per cent. The growth of production in 1928/29 as compared with the previous year was set considerably lower than necessary, i.e., at 13 per cent, whereas in reality it reached 22 per cent., despite our sabotage. The increase of production for 1929/30 was also set considerably lower than it should have been, i.e., at 13.7 per cent., whereas in reality, despite our sabotage, it reached approximately 24 per cent. The increases we proposed would have led to an intensification of the commodity shortage and to the undermining of the defensive capacities of the Soviet Union. The final figures for the growth of production were deliberately and harmfully planned so that it should be reduced almost every year. For instance, the growth of production in the various years was to have been as follows : 1927/28, 16.3 per cent.; 1928/29, 13.1 per cent.; 1929/30, 13.7 per cent; 1930/31, 10.5 per cent.; 1931/32, 10 per cent. This plan would have led to an intensification of the commodity shortage in accordance with the growth of the Soviet economic system, although the development of industrial production from 1927/28 to 1931/32 according to the figures of the Five Year Plan and according to the balance in practice was to have reduced the commodity shortage towards the end of the Five Year Plan period. " Very obvious sabotage is seen in the projects which I worked out with the assistance of the sabotage organisation for the most important branches of the economic system (metal, coal, oil, chemicals, electricity), branches of production which are of first-rate importance for the material supply of the Soviet Union. " For instance, in the case of coal, production at the end of the Five Year Plan (1931/32) was deliberately fixed at 57,000,000 tons, although a considerably higher figure could and should have been set. This can be seen alone from the fact that production in the year 1929/30 was 58
