This responsible function could be fulfilled successfully upon condition of complete loyalty in its leadership, but it was just this loyalty which Stalin lacked. He had converted the Inspection like the party Secretariat into an implement of machine instrigues, of protection for "his and persecution of his opponents. In the article Better Less and Better" Lenin openly pointed out that his proposed reform of the Inspection, at whose head Tziurupa had not long ago been placed, must inevitably meet the resistance of "all our bureaucracy, both the Soviet and the party bureaucracy".
