The Chairman of the Special Trade Delegation of the Far Eastern Republic to the United States (Yazikoff) to the Secretary of State

Sir: I am. enclosing herewith a memorandum73 regarding the present situation which has arisen since the Washington Conference in the relations between the Government of the Far Eastern Republic and the Japanese Government.

The present situation in the Russian Far East is once more very critical and may result in more bloodshed. I believe that only immediate [Page 849]action in accordance with the declaration of the Government of the United States at the Washington Conference regarding the withdrawal of the Japanese troops from Eastern Siberia may prevent the Russian Far East from once more being plunged into chaos.

I beg [etc.]

A. Yazikoff
