The most striking step yet taken by tbe Kremlin in this direction was the constitutional amendment of Feb. 1, which authorized tne 15 constituent republics of the So- viet Union to "enter into direct relations with foreign- states, to conclude agreements with- them and exchange diplomatic and con- representatives with Ehcm." This previously was re- served to the central Roverament. Thus, the first Soviet "domin- ions" were horn.: White Russia and the Ukraine. Both are members in their own right of the Na- tions Orcaoizauon. where the Ittt- tcr, in particular, already has prlaycd- a conspicuous role. Neither of thexc two enjoys a-n s Independence comparable to that of Canada or any other British Dominion. Empires like the Brit- ish Commonwealth grow orsask cally. They are not created by a stroke of the- pen. Hence tho difference between, the new Soviet setup and that of Great Britain is as- wi-de as Rusr sin's concept of democracy ia- apart from ours.
