Abraham Dobry, famous Russian banker, died here today at the age of 68. Dobry negotiated the Ukrainian-German economic treaty of 1918, for which he was kidnaped by a dissatisfied Ukrainian Government. The kidnaping resulted in the sensational trial and conviction of the Ukrainian Premier Golubovitch, who was held responsible.
