After the end of the Second World War, Russian refugees in Yugoslavia (including Montenegro, which became one of the six parts of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia) had to face the new reality of Tito’s Communist regime. The new authorities closed all йmigrй institutions, including schools, hospitals, and newspapers. It is not surprising that many White йmigrйs decided to leave for other countries. In 1948, Russians living in Yugoslavia had to endure a new challenge when disagreements between the Stalin and Tito reached their peak. Eventually relations between the two countries were severed, which had a direct (of course,...

When Natasha Mozgovaya, a well-known journalist, was asked what she, a Russian-speaking Israeli, thought about the state of affairs in Russian Palestine, she replied without hesitation, “the country we live in is Israel” and “‘Russian Palestine’ most likely means the Russian wives of Palestinians.” Israelis generally do not reflect on how this Palestine lives. On the one hand, since the beginning of the intifada, Israelis generally do not enter the Arab towns in the West Bank and the Gaza strip, save for those on active military duty. The Russian wives of Palestinian Arabs are hardly ever employed in...

The history of Montenegro dates back to the end of the 5th century and the beginning of the 6th century when Slavic tribes began to settle the Balkan Peninsula. In the Middle Ages, the Principality of Zeta became one of the hotbeds of Slavic culture. It was here, for example, that the first book in Cyrillic was printed in 1493. At the end of the 15th century, the plains of Zeta were seized by the Ottoman Empire, which forced the local Orthodox population to leave for the impregnable mountain areas called Black Mountain (literally “black, dense forests”). Since then, the name Montenegro has stuck, replacing Zeta. Taking shelter in...

The very phrase “Russian Africa,” in contrast to “Russian America” or “Russian London,” sounds very unusual, to say the least. Nevertheless, our compatriots began to settle in what was then known as the Dark Continent at the end of the 19th century. To this day, South Africa remains an important area for Russian emigres. History is silent about when the first of our compatriots settled in southern Africa. Numerous legends exist. According to one, the famous and influential Iloffs, a Boer family, had Russian roots. One of its pioneers was supposedly a Russian defector who had been sent by Peter I to study...

To the Holy Synod of the Russian Orthodox Church, Moscow Patriarchate Your Eminences! On behalf of the Russkiy Mir Foundation and from me personally, I would like to express my sincere and deep condolences at the untimely death of His Holiness Patriarch Alexy. His death is a huge loss for us all – not only for the clergy and the laity, but for the multiconfessional, multiethnic and multicultural Russian world in its entirety. Despite its diversity, the Russian world is nevertheless united by its connection to the great Russian civilization, which is inconceivable without the spiritual and ethical direction based in Russian Orthodox...

After the turbulent events that took place in Russia between 1917 and the early 1920s, Russian political йmigrйs certainly remained in Switzerland, but a full-fledged Russian diaspora ceased to exist. The attitude in Switzerland toward Soviet Russia, and later toward the Soviet Union during the interwar period, was extremely negative. For example, in 1939, the head of the Swiss Foreign Ministry began a movement to have the Soviet Union expelled from the League of Nations (the only case of this happening in the history of this organization). In 1943, after an indigenous fracture ensued during the Second World War, the president of...
