within the Institute of Party History at the Moldavian Communist Party CC
In connection with the propaganda which intensifies against the Moldavian SSR and with the necessity of adopting supplementary measures in the domain of ideological work in the ranks of the population of the republic, of the profound elaboration of the problems of the revolutionary movement and the victory of the socialist revolution in Moldavia, of the Marxist-Leninist treatment of the history of the communist movement in the Balkans, of the relations between the communist parties of the Balkan countries and the CPSU, Comintern, of the neutralization of bourgeois and imperialist revisionist propaganda and the unmasking of the falsifiers of the historical events and phenomena by Romanian sociologists, the Central Committee of the Moldavian Communist Party considers necessary and requests permission to open, within the framework of the Institute of Party History at the Moldavian Communist Party CC, a specialized sector of 8 persons (1 sector chief, 3 senior scientific collaborators and 2 junior collaborators, 1 laboratory assistant and 1 typist).
In order to organize such a sector, a group of specialists prepared with a stage of scientific activity in this domain, familiarized with the works of Romanian authors, knowing the languages of the countries whose parties made up the Balkan Communist Federation, has been created.
MCP CC Secretary, I. Bodiul (signature)
As part of the campaign to combat nationalist Romanian propaganda, the Moldavian leader informs the CPSU CC about the creation of a new section in the Moldavian Institute of Party History. This new section would include "a group of specialists... familiarized with the works of Romanian authors, [and] knowing the languages of the countries whose parties made up the Balkan Communist Federation."
