Orgbureau of the CC

In my opinion, Frunze asks too much. We must first capture the whole of the Ukraine, Turkestan can wait and make the best of it for a time.[1]


  1. In a conversation by direct line with members of the Turkestan Commission, Frunze said: “The refusal to send top-level political workers is due to the big demands of the Southern Front and the Ukraine.... By our efforts we have succeeded in getting... a few people for both the political and the technical jobs.” = (M. V. Frunze na frontakh grazhdanskoi voiny. Sbornik dokumentov, Moscow, 1941, p. 259.)
