Cancellation of the debts which the poor village population owes on account of loans granted them up to November 7 of this year, was ordered by the praesidium of the All Russian Wzik, Central Executive Committee to combat the famine and the former special section to promote agriculture among them.

Loans of 200,000 roubles granted in 1924 and 1925 through the Comzet, the Governmental commission for settling Jews on the land, for Jewish land workers in White Russia and Daghistan are also included in this general cancellation.
