The head of the Cheka informed the SNK that in the last five weeks of 1921, 20 fires had occurred in the railway workshops of the region. From his point of view, saboteurs were to blame for this, setting fires to throw explosives into the furnaces of locomotives, as well as saboteurs who paralyzed the repair of rolling stock.
During the stay of the head of the Cheka in Omsk on the Kulunda-Slavgorod branch, frequent wrecks were observed, which were assessed as acts of sabotage.
Soon, over 100 KGB officers were sent to Siberia from the European part of the country.
