Oral Answers to Questions — Russia. – in the House of Commons on 17 June 1920.

Alert me about debates like this


40 and 41.

asked the Prime Minister (1) whether he has any information concerning the destruction by the Poles of the electric power station, water service, and sewage system at Kieff previous to their evacuation;

(2) whether the St. Vladimir Cathedral at Kieff was destroyed or damaged by the Poles before evacuating the city?

The only information which I have received regarding the alleged damage done by the Poles to private property prior to their evacuation of Kieff has been contained in the Bolshevik wireless news. The hon. Member is evidently referring to the same wireless report. I have noticed that the Poles have officially refuted these allegations.


Are not these barbaric outrages sufficient to warrant discontinuing our support of Poland?
