Thank you for today's drops. I do not yet have any information about their content. Some of them fell into the hands of the Germans, some of them fell in Praga district (into the hands of ) the Soviets, but the very fact of help from the Allies had an extremely positive effect on the population and the army. People jumped for joy. However, it cannot be a one-off operation, it must be long term, then its real and political impact will be enormous, otherwise the Soviets will have a monopolistic position. The most needed articles are: food other than sugar, ammunition and medicines, without this we (our efforts) will collapse.
