RESOLUTION ADOPTED AT A MEETING OF THE INTER-PARTY LEAGUE FOR THE RESTORATION OF FREE RUSSIA HELD IN NEW YORK CITY May 17. 1918.

The League greets the President of the United States and expresses its profound gratitude for his consistent democratic policy in regard to Russia -— the policy which expressed itself in not recognizing the so-called Bolsheviki Government as an organisation which has usurped and holds power in Russia against the will of the people, by sheer force, and which has brought Russia and the governmental apparatus in Russia into a state of utter disruption; in not recognizing the so-called Brest-Litovsk peace treaty as, an sct emanating, on Russia's part, from irresponsible elements who were not authorized to speak in Russia’s name, an act which is not recognized by Russia and which is treacherous in its nature; in repudisting the idea of peace at Russia’s expense, an idea dangerous for Russia as well as for the democracy of the world, and in defending the idea of Russia's sovereignty regarding her internal affairs.

The League recognizes the absolute necessity of concerted and united action of all parties affiliated with the League in the interests of Russia's salvation. The League decides to temporarily cease all internal party strife.

The League recognizes that Russis's salvation is bound up with and dependent upon the victory of the Allies.

The League is of the opinion that the best means for securing and speeding this victory is the restoration of the Russian front; that is, the practical rejection by Russia of the Brest-Litovsk treaty which the Bolsheviki treacherously imposed on Russia.

The League holds that this task can be fulfilled only if the Allies will render Russia active general and military help.
