MOSCOW, Aug. 19 (AP).---Denying the charge by Cardinal Innitzer of Austria that millions have died of starvation in Soviet Russia in the past few months, a Foreign Office official tonight said, "There is no cannibalism and, I may say, there are no Cardinals in Soviet Russia."

He described Cardinal Innitzer's report of starvation and "accompanying horrors of infanticide and cannibalism" as "pure fabrication."

It is generally known, however, that there has been some suffering in Russia, even to the extent of malnutrition in many cases, because of last year's poor harvest. This year's bumper crop is expected to alleviate conditions.
