9404. Am[erican] mission’s 5558, December 5, 4 p.m.

Department of State regrets sale of supplies to Ukrainians by Liquidation Committee and would welcome any action to annul its effects which would not embarrass American authorities. Department concurs as to undesirability of Ukrainians obtaining funds in France through sale of supplies. See Department’s 3749 November 13, 2 p.m. to Am[erican] mission.36 Distribution of that portion consisting of medical supplies by Red Cross now under consideration and will be discussed with Polk. Can you devise method to prevent Ukrainian use of other supplies?
