From today’s perspective, the history of Russian-Serbian contacts, especially migration, looks very much like a pendulum of sorts. Before the beginning of the 20th century, there were massive relocations of Serbs into the Russian Empire. Serbian refugees served in the Russian army, had a great impact on Russian culture, and contributed to the building of the Russian state (especially true with respect to the era of Peter the Great). Russia’s presence in the Balkans was primarily indirect in nature – in the form of spiritual and educational materials published in Russia for Orthodox subjects of the Ottoman Empire, financial...

On February 19, the “American Artists from the Russian Empire” exhibition opened in the Benua Wing of the Russian Museum. The exhibition is part of a series devoted to the “Art of Russian Emigres.” The exhibition includes works by painters and sculptors who emigrated to the United States from the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union up until the late 1930s. The names of many of them have virtually been erased from the history of our national art, and their creative legacy is unknown to many of our fellow countrymen. The exhibition includes approximately 100 works from 40 museums, galleries and private collections in...

The reaction of Russian emigres to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979 was relatively dispirited. This can partly be explained by the indifference to politics that characterized the new generation of emigrants. Despite the large number of “dissidents,” the third wave of emigration was far less ideological than the first two. During the 1960s and 1970s, many people left the Soviet Union not so much for political or ideological reasons as for economic ones. Or they left due to life’s circumstances, for example, for the purpose of family reunification. Incidentally, the difficulty of family reunification became the...

The Middle East continues to be one of the most important regions for Russian foreign policy. The famous Eastern Question, which Catherine the Great sought to resolve once and for all, was, contrary to popular belief, never reduced to a simple struggle for control over the Balkans, the straits and Constantinople. Beyond these regions lied Palestine – the Holy Land – as well as the only indigenous Christian country in Africa – Ethiopia. Beyond the Black Sea region, Russian influence also extended to these lands. The Eastern Question meant that Russian economic and political interests took on a religious and ideological...
