[We proposed] the elaboration of a prospective plan of struggle against the emigrant centers.

Dr. Chebrikov said that the idea was good, but that this was quite a difficult task. We need to take more active measures to penetrate the centers, publish materials, expose them, etc.

The proposal was accepted. […]
