Date1915
DescriptionLetter dated March 3 1915, written from Stavka the General Headquarters of armed forces in late Imperial Russia and the Soviet Union. Dolgorukov reports that the German advance has been temporarily halted, and that there has been a lull at the front in the last few days leading to the general mood at Stavka to be good. He comments that the Myasoyedov affair is disgraceful and that there were agents in Vilna and Libau spying on both the army and the navy. The French Ambassador is expected any day to confirm terms, according to Sazonov, on which Dardanelles will be ceded to Russia.
