SOVIET OPPOSED. Frontier Revision. PEACE SUPPORTED. (Australian Cable Service.) LONDON. August 29. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 31 August 1933
SOVIET OPPOSED. Frontier Revision. PEACE SUPPORTED. (Australian Cable Service.) LONDON. Auuust 29. The Moscow correspondent of the "Manchester Guardian" telegraphs that M. Karl Radek, the Soviet leader, in an article in the Soviet journal, "Izvestia," announces the .Soviet's un- compromising opposition to any warlike revision of European frontiers. This view echoes those of Prance and its East European Allies, and coincides with the presence of M. Herriot (the ex-Premier of Prance) at Dnieprostroi. M. Radek adds: "A world war can only increase the suffering of human- ity. The Soviet greets any country sup- porting Russia's struggle for peace. It fully sympathises with Poland's fight to retain her independence." Tills announcement, 'the correspon- dent points out, indicates the repudia- tion of the German dream of Russo German action against Poland.
