First week of November 1962 / Enciphered cable from Malinovskiy to Pliyev
TROSTNIK to Comrade PAVLOV
As regards the warheads for the Luna, FKR, and Il-28 aircraft, there has yet to be talk about removing them. We need to leave them in Cuba, at your disposal.
Translator Note: TROSTNIK was the pseudonym used by Minister of Defense Malinovskiy, and PAVLOV was that used by Commander of the Group of Soviet Forces in Cuba Pliyev.
