HC Deb 11 December 1919 vol 122 c1606
33. Mr. SWAN

asked the Prime Minister whether he has any information to the effect that from the 18th to 20th October, immediately after the evacuation of Kiev by the Bolsheviks, some Cossacks and a corps of the volunteer army perpetrated a pogrom on the Jews in that city, killing some hundreds of Jews in the suburb of Podol alone; and whether His Majesty's Government will instruct the special British mission to South Russia to Make a full inquiry into this and other reported pogroms?


A report has been received tending to corroborate the first part of the question. His Majesty's High Commissioner has been instructed to report fully on alleged pogroms in South Russia, and the British Military Mission has already received instructions to do all in its power to prevent such excesses.
