MANYURIN-BROVARSKY shows about the wrecking work carried out by the Trotskyists, along with terrorist activities, in the Ukraine in the development of the cotton crop, as well as about the opposition to Academician LYSENKO for the vernalization of agricultural crops.
According to GOLUB's participant, MANYURIN-BROVARSKY knows that "the international orientation common with the Ukrainian nationalists" towards Hitler was carried out by the Trotskyists in opposition to the international relations established by the Soviet Union with anti-fascist governments.
