London Times, 12 February 1906, p. 5: ATTEMPTED ASSASSINATION OF ADMIRAL CHUKHNIN. ST. PETERSBURG, FEB. 10.*
Admiral Chukhnin, Commander of the Black Sea Fleet, was to-day wounded by an unknown woman in his office. The woman was shot dead by the sentry, who rushed to the assistance of the Admiral.
SEVASTOPOL, FEB. 10.*
Details of the attempt on Admiral Chukhnin show that three bullets passed right through his body without inflicting any serious injury, while the fourth lodged in his stomach. His condition inspires hope of his recovery. He continues to transact business.
(FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) ST. PETERSBURG, FEB. 11.
The attempt to murder Admiral Chukhnin is ascribed to revenge for the recent dismissals of officers.
