In 1923 the Sovnarkom of the USSR became the Union government responsible to the Central Executive Committee and its presidium.

 Europe-Asia Studies: Molotov and Soviet Government: Sovnarkom, 1931-1941. - book reviews   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The last two chapters deal with 'Sovnarkom and Politics' in the years 1931-36 and 1936-41 respectively, but their main subject is personnel change and institutional reorganisations such as that which occurred with the fragmenting of the industrial ministry, NKTP, in the wake of the Great Purges.
Watson does not dispute the conventional view that after Lenin's death Sovnarkom was always a secondary institution whose primary function was to pass legislation on policy questions already decided in the Politburo.
Watson's concluding claims for the significance of the institution are muted in the extreme: 'Sovnarkom failed to become a "cabinet" or the "government", but it did become a remarkably sophisticated body, the procedures of which compare favourably with governments and cabinets in contemporary Western countries.

 Kulak - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Both peasants and Soviet officials were often uncertain what constituted a kulak, and the term was often used to label anyone who used hired labor or had more property than considered "norm" according to some criteria.
In May 1929 the Sovnarkom issued a decree that formalized the notion of "kulak household" (кулацкое хозяйство).
Many peasants chose to slaughter livestock, even horses, rather than to pass it into common property, which caused Sovnarkom to issue a series of decrees to prosecute "the malicious slaughtering of livestock" (хищнический убой скота).
