4.00 A.M.: Sazonov sends instructions to Shebeko

Posted on July 23rd, 1914 by admin

4.00 A.M.: Sazonov sends instructions to Shebeko to see Berchtold and “cordially but firmly” to warn him of the dangerous consequences of making demands of a character unacceptable “to the dignity of Serbia”.
Austria-Hungary should do nothing to compromise Serbian independence.
The French have agreed to send similar instructions to their ambassador in Vienna but in both cases the instructions are too late.
The Austro-Hungarian ultimatum to Serbia has already been delivered.
