RUSSIAN MISREPRESENTATION

LONDON, March 26

■Prince Wiudischgratz, a former Hungarian Food Minister, interviewed at vie:i«va, declared that Count Karolyi's following consisted mostly of nobles who had been ruined by gambling. Count Karolyi made many concessions to the Communists until the latter overthrew the Government. The present Government only represented iiudapest. it consisted mostly of jews, but was a more logical arrangement than Karolyi's phantom rule. Two thousand ' British and French troops would be sufficient to restpre order m Hungary now, but the situation, might be very different six months ■iiei.-ie. It would be unwise to send Czech, Roumanian, and Serbian troops, whose presence would arouse the national antipathies. ai. Leiaiiun, the Foreign Minister, was a journalist. He had been a prisoner of war in Russia, where he oecame intimate with Lenin. It was stated that the latter provided the runcts for Uelakun to puolish a rampantly Communist newspaper in Budapest. • . " Karolyi offered to serve the new Government as a private, to assist the Red revolution, and destroy the capitalists, whose representatives in Paris were ready to reduce Hungary's innocent population to beggary. _ iho ixussian Bolshevist, M. Ichitcherin, sent a message to M. Belakun saying that Germany, in obedience to the entente, had formed new detachments for a general offensive. The French general, Neissel, was at Warsaw, forming a junction with the Polish Army, which was the centre of tlie new invasion. The right flank conTisted of General Petlura's troops. Ihe German left iiank had taken Tukkum, aud was now approaching Nponevrj. | The Poles were progressing towards 1 Viina and Minsk, and had occupied Baranovitchi. The Ukrainian right was completely disorganised. ; Simultaneously with the upheaval m Hungary, General Kolchak, 'with the Siberian ■irmy, had commenced a rapid offensive in the East, penetrated through Perm, and occupied Ufa. Ihis advance had been stopped, and rapid progress was being made against General jfetlura's forces.
