We prove that for an arbitrary function ρ of subexponential growth there exists a group G of intermediate growth whose growth function satisfies the inequality vG,S(n) ⩾ ρ(n) for all n. For every prime p, one can take G to be a p-group; one can also take a torsion-free group G. We also discuss some generalizations of this assertion.
