This chapter analyzes the transcript of the November 27, 1932 joint session of the Politburo and Presidium of the Central Control Commission. It explains that the meeting was called to expose the Smirnov–Eismont–Tolmachev affair, an alleged conspiracy of members of the Communist Party unhappy with the failures of collectivization and the leadership of Joseph Stalin. The chapter discusses Nikolai Eismont and Vladimir Tolmachev's criticisms of Stalin's responsibility for the tragic state of affairs in the countryside, and highlights Stalin's fear of being removed by the opposition groups within the party.

Keywords:   Politburo meeting, Central Control Commission, failures of collectivization, Joseph Stalin, Nikolai Eismont, Vladimir Tolmachev, opposition groups
