    Zamiatin, the director of TASS, writes to the Moldavian leader suggesting the creation of a new office, the Special Editor of Information for Abroad. This editor would help with the propaganda campaign to "counteract the more active attempts by Western means of information to misrepresent the past and present of the Moldavian people, [and in] combating certain tendencies of Romanian propaganda."

Esteemed Ivan Ivanovich,

As V. N. Ignatenko reported to me, you are in agreement with the opinion regarding the necessity of intensifying the activity of the Moldavian Agency of Information [ATEM] in the preparing of materials about the life of the republic for the foreign press. This was conditioned by the necessity of counteracting the more active attempts by Western means of information to misrepresent the past and present of the Moldavian people, of combating certain tendencies of Romanian propaganda.

We believe it would be opportune to organize, within the framework of the agency, a Special Editor of Information for Abroad whose collaboration could prepare material, both qualitatively and operationally, with a propagandistic character. TASS requests the Moldavian CP CC to assist the agency in the formation of this editor’s office.

With respect

General Director of TASS, L. Zamiatin (signature)
