According to wikipedia:

 

'One of the factors that led to the beginning of World War I was close bilateral relations between the Kingdom of Serbia and the Russian Empire. While Russia and Serbia were not formally allied, Russia openly sought political and religious influence in Serbia.'

 

This suggests there was no formal treaty.

Prit Buttar discusses this in his book Splintered Empires, I don't have my copy to hand but it is worth reading.

Thank you both very much. I will get a copy of Slintered Empires. From what I've read so far the nearest to Russian treaty obligations (as opposed to territorial ambitions) I've found is the Treaty of Berlin in 1878. I am fascinated by the lack of clarity post 28th June. The authors I've read so far variously put the blame on Austria, Russia, France,Germany, Serbia and England!
