(UP)—Germany will supply Russia with armaments under the new Russo- Germau trade agreement and will get In return raw materials which might have gone to the allies, the newspaper Izveslln. official government organ said today. This was the first mention that under the agreement Russia would get anything but commercial industrial supplies from Germany, mrther the question which foreign trade experts had asked ns to what material Russia could spare for Germany was implicitly onswer- cd by the statement that Russia had prepared to send such material to the allies. It was explained that the allies had cancelled contracts to supply Russia before the war and that therefore Russia could not send them the gcods which were to have been the return. lous areas of the country.
