QUERY: V. D. Nabokov and the death penalty
From
Date
Body
Prompted by Andrea Pitzer's query, we found the text of V.D.Nabokov's
speech
made in Moscow on August 14, 1917. Contrary to the inaccurate memoir
that I have yet to locate, it doesn't contain any apology of death
penalty but in it VDN strongly supports the proposed policy of
Gen.L.G.Kornilov
aimed at restoring order in the country and firmly dismisses
the possibility of separate peace negotiations.
The source is:
Государственное совещание 12 - 15 августа 1917 года. Стенографический
отчет / Центрархив. 1917 год в документах и материалах под ред.
