Addressed to the head of the Vodniy water-mine of the Ukhta Industrial Complex of the MVD of the USSR, D.V. Burov. Kaze reports that his term of imprisonment ended in May, 1942 and he was attached to production of the water-mine until the end of “military operations”.

According to Joint Directive No. 21 of the NKVD and the Public Prosecutor of the USSR of the 22.06.1941, release “from camps, prisons and colonies of counter-revolutionaries, armed robbers, recidivists and other dangerous criminals” was stopped. According to the later Joint Directive No.185 of the NKVD of the USSR and the Public Prosecutor of the USSR (29.04.1942), prisoners who had already served their time, but were detained in camps and colonies (on 1 January 1942 that meant 50,296 individuals) were released (except for those convicted of “betrayal of the Fatherland, terrorism, espionage, sabotage, Trotskyists, Rightists and armed robbers”, to whom it was decreed “that they would remain under guard until the end of the war”). The results of this application cannot be found. The document was transferred to the Museum from the archive of the “Progress” factory, the successor to the OGPU water-mine [Promysel] No.2 (Settlement Vodniy).
