The issue addressed by Russia’s top diplomats, generals, and naval admirals on 8/21 February 191471—a meeting convened by order of His Majesty Nicholas II, under the chairmanship of Sazonov himself—was, according to the original transcript, “the possibility of the Straits question being opened, even quite possibly in the near future” (byit’ mozhet’ dazhe v blizkom budushchem).
