There is conflicting information about whether the Makhnovists allowed freedom of speech/press for Bolsheviks in the territory that Makhnovists held in the Ukraine.
Both these quotes are from the same source: "Nestor Makhno and Rural Anarchism in Ukraine, 1917–21" by Colin Darch https://theanarchistlibrary.org/library/colin-darch-nestor-makhno-and-rural-anarchism-in-ukraine-1917-21
So on the one hand this quote indicates that there was freedom of the press for Bolsheviks / the Communist Party:
The makhnovtsy permitted Right and Left SRs as well as the Bolsheviks to publish newspapers, and even published a proclamation on socialist freedom of the press and of association:
"1. All socialist political parties, organisations and tendencies have the right to propagate their ideas, theories, views and opinions freely, both in speech and in writing. No restriction of socialist freedom of speech or of the press will be permitted, and no persecution may take place in this respect."
Datelined Ekaterinoslav, 5 November 1919 (Arshinov, Istoriia makhnovskogo dvizheniia, pp. 151–2).
And this indicates the opposite:
Berkman was also busy making contacts with southern anarchists. In August he visited Iosif Gotman at the Vol’noe Bratstvo (Free Brotherhood) book shop in Khar’kov. Gotman was better known under his penname, Emigrant, with which he signed articles in Nabat, and had also worked as a teacher in Makhnovite camps. Gotman disliked the Bolsheviks: ‘I consider Makhno’s povstantsy movement as a most promising beginning of a great popular movement against the new tyranny’, he told Berkman, while another anarchist who was present added that ‘there isn’t enough left of the Revolution to make a fig-leaf for Bolshevik nakedness’. Gotman believed that makhnovshchina represented ‘the real spirit of October’ and that kulaks were a minority in the movement. While he admitted that there was no freedom of speech for Communists in Makhnovite-controlled areas, there certainly was for Maximalists and Left SRs.

So which is true?
The seeming contradiction could merely be due to different policies at different points in time. I admit I've only read a few excerpts of this text so the question I'm asking may be found in the text but it's very long and I'm hoping someone here will already know the answer.
