An Unpublished Communique
From Russia to the Entente
Ily RUSSIAN TELEGRAHII I AGE('Y.
On February 19, people's commis
saire for foreign affairs, Chicherin,
sent the following radio-telegram to
the governments of England, France,
Italy, Japan and the United States
of. North America:
"The government of the Russian
soviet republic, which has already
expressed in its note of February 4
addressed to the governments of the
allied powers its efforts to attain
peace, as well as its definite desire
for peace, has, toward the govern
ment of the Polish republic, an atti
tude which is just as peace-loving
as is its attitude towards the soviet
republics of Lithuania and White
Russia with which it now stands in a
relation of mutual friendliness. The
government of the I'olish republic in
its behalf proposed, in a note dated
February 7, and addressed to the
Russian soviet government, to send
to the latter government a special
delegate, commissioned to open
peace negotiations. In its note of
F'ebruary 10, the Russian soviet
government of the Polish republic,
that it will receive the latter's dele
gate, since the soviet government ar
dently desires to rebove all grounds
of conflict with the Polish republic
and to bring about normal commu
nications between the two republics.
In the matter of territorial questions
which require deliberations between
representatives of the republics of
Lithuania and White Russia, the
Russian soviet government states its
readiness to offer to the Polish gov
ernment its co-operation toward a
peaceful solution of these questions
The governments of Lithuania and
White Russia have in turn sent a
radio-telegram to the Polish govern
ment, containing a protest against
the attempts made by the latter to
settle disputed questions of territory
by force of arms, in so far as they
concern Lithuania and White Rus
sia, and have proposed to the Polish
government the formation of a
mixed commission to determine the
political boundaries between Lithu
ania and White Russia on the one
side and the Polish republic on the
In spite of this unmistakable indi
cation of the peaceful inclinations of
the soviet republic of Russia, as well
as of the soviet republics of Lithu
- ania and White Russia, the Polish
troops nevertheless persist inl their
attempts to invade these regions, and
continued concentrations of the arm
ed forces of the Polish republic, on
its eastern boundaries, are still in
progress, threatening both the soviet
republics of Lithuania and White
Russia, as well as the Russian soviet
republic, which is united with them
in immutable friendship. This move
ment of the Polish tre"ns is uncder
taken at the very moimnent when ex
entente powers have arrived at War
