Sovnarkom and Politics 1936–41
In February 1936, Molotov, Ordzhonikidze, Chubar’ and Mikoyan appeared with Mezhlauk at a ceremonial meeting celebrating the fifteenth anniversary of Gosplan, at which Mezhlauk announced that from 1 February Gosplan had begun to compile the Third Five Year Plan. If the absence of commissars, except Ordzhonikidze, from industrial commissariats very much under attack as a result of the Stakhanovite movement, is understandable, the absence of Stalin to whom greetings were sent, and of Kaganovich, one of the major commissars who had won acclaim for fulfilling the plan in 1935, reflects the fact that economic control was increasingly passing from Sovnarkom to party bodies.1
