Grand Duke Wladimir to visit Germany

December 15, 1938

Grand Duke Wladimir of Russia, who is considered by many to be the Czar in exile, left London for Paris today en route for Germany, where he is expected to spend Christmas with his sister, Grand Duchess Kira and her husband, Prince Louis Ferdinand of Prussia.
However, the grand duke's friends have told an Associated Press reporter that they "decline to take seriously published reports that he might have a plan in Hitler's ambitions to set up a Ukrainian state."
The Grand Duke's spokesman said that Wladimir "might or might not" make a courtesy call on Hitler during the four days that he will be with his family.
