Transcript nients in due time; by not revealing potential underground wealth, possible sources of raw material, etc., but on the contrary concealing them; and moreover, by means of direct sabotage, by directing the work in such a way as not to produce the desired effect; by rousing the dissatisfaction of the workers with measures of the soviet government which were designed to raise the productivity of labour; by wilfully misinterpreting all the measures carried out to effect improvements in the national economy." We will quote another deposition by engineer Rutkovsky, which is significant in that it shows that the members of the organisation in the course of their sabotage in industry were always pursuing definite and far-reaching political aims.
