The friends of Semion Petlura, Ukrainian chief who was assassinated by Sholom Schwartzbard, are making efforts to enlist the support of noted Frenchmen for the forthcoming trial of Schwartzbard, it became known here when it was learned that Alexander Millerand, noted French statesman and former Premier, was asked to appear at the trial as counsel in behalf of the late Petlura’s interests.
M. Millerand, however, refused to accept the proposal of Petlura’s friends, it was announced.
