Memorandum of Conversation, by the Under Secretary of State (Stettinius)

Ambassador Gromyko called this afternoon at his request.

He stated that the purpose of his call was to take up again the question of the deserter, Captain Kravchenko. He told me that he had submitted a communication to Mr. Hull on the 6th of May on this subject and that he had never received an answer and he felt it was now time to follow it up with a further request. He then presented an aide-mémoire32 which was in Russian, and I assured the Ambassador that the subject would receive the Department’s most prompt consideration.
