Transcript of incorrectly drawn-up plans, with the assistance of complicated plan methods, and by withholding credits for the urgent demands of industry, behind the pretext of this or that formal excuse. The main part of the work of sabotage began with the discussions for the preparation of the credit reform." The same evidence was given by the accused Berlatsky : " The carrying out of the instructions of the All- Union Bureau of the Central Committee of the R.S.D.L.P. for passive resistance, inactivity, and in particular the instructions for disorganising activity, resulted in a state of affairs in the State Bank in which the statistical department was not sufficiently provided with material and this made it difficult to observe accurately the economic organs and the state of their work. This also made it •difficult for the bank to maintain its elasticity and its struggle against those who disturbed the plans. The beginning of this state of affairs goes back to 1928. Leshnev, Kassatzky, Mescheriakov, and others, were directly engaged in this work of sabotage. . . . The instructions of the All-Union Bureau regarding passive resistance affected the Accounts Department in such a fashion that instructions concerning the settlement of accounts and the drawing-up of the balance were sent to the local branches too late, and no measures were taken for a timely revision of the state of affairs in accounting and balance work. The result was that the balances were published too late and instructions were not sent out in time to the operative departments. Taken as a whole, this sabotage work decreased the elasticity of the State Bank and lowered its efficiency as the centre of accounting for the economic system of the Soviet Union. " In the second half of the year 1929/30, Sher put forward in the State Bank the question of a credit reform for the trades co-operatives. At that times these cooperatives were very weak, both with regard to their financial state and their planned work. " Sher informed me that they estimated that the artisan and trades sector would be particularly favourable in consequence of its special conditions, and that a series of prospects would open up for the All-Union Bureau from this work. " Preparations in the Bank were made in all haste and the result was that the artisan and trades co-operatives received from the State Bank within three or four months about 30 or 40,000,000 roubles more credit than originally laid down in the plans of the State Bank." 61
