The information of the Belofinns on the positions, movement, and state of our troops is increasing.
A number of facts confirm the existence of a wide net of the enemy's intelligent services working with impunity in the areas of our troops stationing and in the rear of our Armies. Both on the territory occupied by our Army and on the territory of the USSR the work of the spy radio-stations is recorded. Sometimes the radio stations are located in the immediate proximity to our major headquarters and inform the enemy of our troops` movement, take-offs of our air-forces, etc.
To prevent espionage the Main War Council Headquarters orders:
To inform of the measures taken and their fulfilment.
