Cable, Mao Zedong to Filippov (Stalin)

24 июня 1952 г.


Товарищ Филиппов!


По прибытии в Пекин делегация Международного комитета по расследованию фактов бактериологической войны, созданного Всемирным советом мира, советский делегат Жуков, ознакомившись с организованной нами здесь выставкой и материалами, предложил пригласить члена-корреспондента Академии наук СССР Петричеву, паразитолога Теплова, специалиста по вирусным заболеваниям Левковича и одного специалиста по инсектологии прибыть специальным самолетов в Пекин для оказания нам помощи в подготовке доклада Международному комитету о фактах бактериологической войны.


Надеюсь, что эти четыре специалиста будут в ближайшее время посланы в Пекин. Как только работа закончится, они смогут возвратиться в СССР.


Прошу Вас рассмотреть возможност1, их командировки и сообщить Ваше решение.


Мао Цзэдун

Comrade Filippov [Stalin]!


Upon arriving in Beijing [with] the delegation of the International Committee to Investigate the Facts of Bacteriological Warfare, created by the World Peace Council, the Soviet delegate Zhukov, having become familiar with the exhibits and materials organized here by us, proposed to invite the corresponding member of the USSR Academy of Sciences Petrichev, the parasitologist Teplov, the specialist on viral diseases Levkovich, and a specialist on entomology to arrive specially in Beijing by air to provide assistance to us in preparing the report of the International Committee to Investigate the Facts of Bacteriological Warfare.


I hope that these four specialists will be sent to Beijing as soon as possible. As soon as the work is completed, they will be returned to the USSR.


I request that you consider the possibility of their trip and that you let us know your decision.




Mao Zedong writes to Stalin about inviting Soviet specialists to continue investigating the bacteriological warfare allegedly carried out by the United States.
