Russian submarines potential threat for Japanese shipping according to the Dutch magazine Marineblad 1934 no. 7

An item referred to the Jap. Chr. dated 15 November 1934 reporting that Japan always stated that submarine were defence and not offensive weapons for which reason she was against the disposal. However since the rumours that Russian stationed submarines at Vladivostok changed the Japanese opinion apparently while the press wrote that the submarines were a threat for the Japanese shipping.
