The CC resolves:

(1) to recognise the priority importance of the Petrograd Front and to be guided by this in allocating troops, etc.;

(2) to dispatch two-thirds of the division withdrawn from the Eastern Front to Petrograd and one-third to the Southern Front;

(3) to instruct the Organising Bureau to adopt the most rigorous emergency measures to step up the removal of Communists from work in the Soviets (central and local) and their transfer to war work, especially in the hinterland and directly behind the front line (combating desertion, army supplies, stores, accelerating mobilisation, etc.);

(4) a similar instruction is given the Council of Defence and the Council of People’s Commissars.
