Austro-Hungarian Red Book: The Russian Chargé d’Affaires to Count Berchtold, 25 July 1914

On 25 July 1914, the Russian Chargé d’Affaires (the defacto Ambassador) to Austria-Hungary, sent a telegram to the Austro-Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Leopold Count Berchtold (pictured) as he was travelling to meet the Austro-Hungarian Emperor at Ischl. In his short telegram, the Russian Chargé d’Affaires asks for a prolongation of the terms of the Austro-Hungarian ultimatum to Serbia.
