USSR seeks recognition from the U.S.  By the time that the U.S. began negotiations to recognize Soviet Russia in 1933, the United States was the only major power that had continued to withhold official diplomatic recognition from the Soviet Union.

MacDonald Ministry downfall:  A bungled prosecution of J.R. Campbell, a communist newspaper editor, led to an adverse vote in the Commons. Because of that rebuff and various other factors, the Conservatives regained a majority, and MacDonald resigned Nov. 4, 1924.

Herriot Ministry:  In the elections of June, 1924 the group won a majority of the seats and Herriot became the new prime minister. Once in power Herriot attempted to improve relations between the European powers. He extended de jure recognition of the Soviet Union, which he had visited two years before. In April 1925 Herriot’s ministry fell because of his financial policies, and in July 1926 his second ministry lasted only three days.
