HC Deb 17 July 1919 vol 118 c572
8. Lieut.-Colonel MALONE

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, seeing that M. Sasonoff was Minister for Foreign Affairs under the Czarist Government in Russia, and is now Minister for Foreign Affairs under the Kolchak Government, he can state if the policy of the Kolchak Government is similar to that of the Czarist regime?


I do not think I can do better than to refer the hon. and gallant Member to the Notes exchanged between the Allied Governments and Admiral Kolchak, in which the views of Admiral Kolchak in regard to the reconstitution of Russia are fully explained. It will be seen that they are in no way similar to those of the old regime.

Lieut.-Colonel MALONE

Is it not a fact that Sasonoff is anathema to the other Russian representatives in Europe, and that his views do not always agree with the views of Kolchak?


I cannot express any opinion as to the effect of Sasonoff's views.
