Posted on July 28th, 1914 by admin

3.00 P.M.: Sazonov sees Buchanan. Sazonov says Russia is no longer satisfied by Austria-Hungary’s statements regarding Serbian independence.
In response to Buchanan asking what Russia would do to prevent further escalation of the crisis Sazonov says the only way to avert war is for Britain to say it will side with Russia and France. This would have the necessary deterrent effect.
Buchanan urges Russia to refrain from any measures that would provoke Germany into taking military preparations.
