1911-02-10 THE DUMA AND THE NAVY

  
London Times, 10 February 1911, p. 5: THE DUMA AND THE NAVY. ST. PETERSBURG, FEB. 9.*

            The Duma last evening debated an interpellation dealing with the accident to the battleship Slava last year. After the Minister of Marine had made a statement on the subject the Duma adopted a resolution declaring that the accident to the Slava did not stand alone, was the result of negligence and carelessness on the part of individual officials, and reflected on the whole service and on the system in force at the Admiralty, where the organization was altogether wrong and there was a lack of trained and experienced specialists.
