8th Administration of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the USSR

CIPHERED TELEGRAM No. 100319


To Comrade RAZUVAEV.

You did not understand my telegram of January 30 about the Korean divisions. This telegram is not a directive, but my proposal for discussion together with Korean comrades. I asked you to communicate to me the opinion of the Korean comrades and your own opinion. You answer me that my order will be fulfilled by you. You did not understand my telegram. Once again I ask you to familiarize KIM IL SUNG and his friends with my telegram and after my proposal is discussed, communicate to me the opinion of the Koreans.

FENG XI [FYN SI; Stalin]

3 February 1951.
No. 81/sh
