Britain Sought to Stop Denikin’s Excesses

See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The British Government, while it supplied the White Russian leader and pogromist, with ammunition did not countenance his attitude towards the Jews and caught to prevent his excesses against them. Assistant Secretary of Foreign Affairs, McNeil, made this statement today in answer to a puery by Noel Buxton, member of Parliament, as to whether any protests had been lodged against Denikin’s Jew-baiting.

The British representatives were instructed to exert all their efforts in behalf of the Jews there and the High Commissioner Sir H. Mackinder upon his departure for Russia at the time was given specific instructions to investigate and report all excesses, McNell said.
