THE OGPU

It appeared that in addition to embezzling money from Ogpu construction enterprises, he withheld the very bread from the mouths of the Soviet rulers, selling Kremlin provisions to outsiders and pocketing the profit. He used these funds, according to court testimony, to stage extravagant orgies.
Like so many other "facts" exhibited at the Moscow show trials, this story of Yagoda's stealing bread and meat from Stalin's table had a tiny grain of truth at its foundation. During the period of acute food shortage, Yagoda did make a practice of ordering more provisions than the Kremlin rulers required. The surplus he distributed among his underfed colleagues of the Ogpu. For several years the upper officials of the Ogpu received secret food packages from Yagoda in addition to their regular rations. Some members of our Military Intelligence grumbled about this, and Yagoda for a time extended his almsgiving to us, so that I myself participated in these crumbs from the Kremlin's table. When Yagoda's accounts were examined, it was discovered that Molotov-to take a random examplehad been charged with about ten times as much sugar as he could possibly have consumed.
Besides charging Yagoda with an elaborate conspiracy to poison people whom he could have poisoned with a turn of his hand, and with selling Kremlin provisions for his personal profit, Stalin's tribunal also took note of the fact that he had given away those same stolen provisions, and on that ground accused him of buying popularity for the purpose of his intrigues a la Fouche.
I am not relating these fantastic facts, or rather nightmares, in order to entertain the reader. I want to prove to him my assertion that in the Ogpu, when Stalin's purge got under way, the very concept of guilt was lost sight of. The reasons for a man's arrest
