Transcript to various branches of the economic system in a fashion which was not in accord with the interests of the branches in question. . . . " The supply of credit to the co-operatives was carried out with regard to the distribution of credit amongst the lower co-operative organisations in such a fashion that in reality the State Bank was not in control of its branches, but the administration of Centrosoyus in control of its finance departments. The State Bank fixed credit for a year or for a quarter. This sum was then confirmed by leading Soviet organs.

In a statement made on December 7th, 1930, the accused .Sher described the nature of the sabotage as follows : " The decisive factors of the work of sabotage were : incorrect distribution of credit, cutting down of credits for one branch of the economic system and the granting of exaggerated sums to the other.
