The Orthodox feared a German-Austrian reperssion of them after this so they appealed to the Czar if Russia for help.
Russia mobilized their armies, Germany and allies (Turkey) saw this as a provocation and declared WAR! In came Britain and France against Germany.
Interesting that the Kaiser, Czar and King of England were cousins, all grandsons of Queen Victoria.

I understand that it was the Czar's wife Czarina Alexandra, who was Queen Victoria's grandchild.
