Transcript Just now an unparalleled revolution without precedent is takinng place in our agriculture, which is becoming col- lectivised and industrialised; the consummation of these great tasks will require great quantities of various raw materials in addition to the products of our heavy industries.

We are also faced with another great task — to complete the electrification of the country begun upon the initiative of Lenin.
