Transcript A Diplomatic Correspondence on the Red and the White Terror DIPLOMATIC NOTE SENT BY THE SWISS MINISTER E. ODIER IN THE NAME OF THE NEUTRAL STATES The representatives of the Diplomatic Corj in Petrograd, having determined that persons of every age and sex are being made the victims of wholesale arrests, that soldiers of the Red Army are daily passing summary sentence upon defenseless citizens requested the Commissary Zinoviev for an interview and were received by him on Monday, September 3. They declared that it was not their purpose to interfere in the struggle between political parties that is going on in Russia; that they desired merely, in the name of humanity, to express the deepest horror at the ■ regime of terror that has been established in Petrograd, Moscow, etc. Led solely by the desire to still their hatred against the whole class of bourgeois in Russia, without legal authority, armed men are breaking into private homes at all hours of the day and night, stealing, plundering and arresting, are throwing thousands of unfortunates into jail who have had nothing to do with the political struggle, whose only crime lies in the fact that they are members of the bourgeoisie whose destruction the Communist leaders are preaching in their newspapers and their speeches. Their desperate relatives are unable to discover the whereabouts of their nearest kin, they are refused permission to see the imprisoned men and women or to provide them with the necessary food. Such acts of terror are imcomprehensible in men who boast that they will bring happiness to humanity. Their brutality arouses the indignant horror of the entire civilized world. The diplomatic corps deems it necessary therefore to express its indignation to the People's Commissary, Zinoviev. It protested emphatically against these acts of brutal despotism that are occurring from day to day. The representatives of the neutral governments insist, in the name of their governments, upon the right to demand adequate redress and legal responsibility of per sons who have or will become guilty of such high-handed acts. The diplomatic corps requests that you bring this matter to the attention of the Soviet Government. Petrograd, September 5 (18). The Swiss Minister, (signed) E. Odier, Dean of the diplomatic corps in Russia. The Answer of the Soviet Government To the Gentlemen representing the Capitalist Neutral Nations: The note presented to us on the 5th of September by the gentlemen representing the neutral powers represents an act of gross interference into the inner affairs of Russia. The Soviet Government would be justified in ignoring this act. But the Soviet Government is glad to grasp any opportunity of explaining the nature of its political tactics to the masses in all countries, for it is the spokesman not only of the Russian working-class, but of exploited humanity all over the eartli. The People's Commissariat for Foreign Affairs therefore gives answer, hereby, to the matter in question. In their description of the treatment that is being accorded to the suppressed Russian bourgeoisie, the neutral powers are plainly trying to arouse the sympathy of the bourgeoisie all over the world. We do not propose to disprove the fiction of the gentlemen who represent the neutral nations. In their note they repeat all the slander that has been invented by the Russian bourgeoisie to discredit the Red Army. We will not refute individual occurrences, first of all because the gentlemen who represent the neutral powers have presented absolutely no concrete occurrences, secondly, because every war—and 2fi
