HC Deb 28 May 1868 vol 192 c955

said, he would bog to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether he has any information of a proposed renewal of Russian hostilities against Bokhara; and, if so, whether he can state the aim and object of such hostilities?


Sir, in the Journal de St. Pétersbowg of the 22nd of April there is a statement that a small Russian force had been sent across the Bokharian frontier to put down some tribes who had given trouble and annoyance to the population within the Russian territory. It is said that the force has been effectual for its object, and I am not aware that there have been any subsequent military operations.
