Russian nationalism is a form of nationalism that promotes Russian cultural identity and unity. Russian nationalism first rose to prominence in the early 19th century, and became closely related to pan-Slavism , from its origin during the Russian Empire to the Soviet Union and beyond. However, Russian nationalism in contemporary discussion is either viewed as a form of ethnic nationalism or multi-racial nationalism. The Slavophile movement became popular in 19th-century Russia. Slavophiles opposed influences of Western Europe in Russia and were determined to protect Russian culture and traditions.
Conventional Wisdom and Contemporary Russian Messianism. A Critical Verification
Russian nationalism is a form of nationalism that promotes Russian cultural identity and unity. Russian nationalism first rose to prominence in the early 19th century, and became closely related to pan-Slavism , from its origin during the Russian Empire to the Soviet Union and beyond. However, Russian nationalism in contemporary discussion is either viewed as a form of ethnic nationalism or multi-racial nationalism.
The Slavophile movement became popular in 19th-century Russia. Slavophiles opposed influences of Western Europe in Russia and were determined to protect Russian culture and traditions. Aleksey Khomyakov , Ivan Kireyevsky , and Konstantin Aksakov are credited with co-founding the movement. A notable folk revival in Russian art was loosely related to Slavophilia. Moscow and Peter's grad, the city of Constantine, these are the capitals of Russian kingdom. But where is their limit? And where are their frontiers to the north, the east, the south and the setting sun?
The Fate will reveal this to future generations. Seven inland seas and seven great rivers from the Nile to the Neva, from the Elbe to China, from the Volga to the Euphrates, from Ganges to the Danube. That's the Russian Kingdom, and let it be forever, just as the Spirit foretold and Daniel prophesied. Pan-Slavism , an ideal of unity of all Slavic Orthodox Christian nations, gained popularity in the mid- to late 19th century.
Among its major ideologists were Nikolay Danilevsky. Pan-Slavism was fueled by and was the fuel for Russia's numerous wars against the Ottoman Empire with the goal of liberating Orthodox nations, such as Bulgarians, Romanians, Serbs and Greeks, from Muslim rule. The final goal was Constantinople; the Russian Empire still considered itself the "Third Rome" and saw its duty as conquering the "Second Rome". In the beginning of 20th century, new nationalist and rightist organizations and parties emerged in Russia, such as the Russian Assembly , the Union of the Russian People , the Union of Archangel Michael and others.
Their motto was " Russia for Russians ". These parties remained monarchist and anti-Semitic ; they were organized by wealthy, powerful aristocrats such as Vladimir Purishkevich and Nikolai Yevgenyevich Markov.
The Bolshevik revolutionaries who seized power in were nominally "antinationalists" and "antipatriots". The newborn Soviet republic under Vladimir Lenin proclaimed internationalism as its official ideology using the Russian language—which was also the language of their party and government. They officially discouraged Russian nationalism and remnants of Imperial patriotism, such as the wearing of military awards received before the Civil War. Some their followers disagreed; in non-Russian territories, Bolshevik power was often regarded as renewed Russian imperialism during to After , a policy of nativization , which provided government support for non-Russian culture and languages within the non-Russian republics, was adopted.
Romantic Russian nationalist themes appeared in art, such as the historical epic films by Sergei Eisenstein and Vsevolod Pudovkin , as well as Sergei Sergeyev-Tsensky 's patriotic novels. The creation of an international communist state under control of the workers was perceived by some as accomplishment of Russian nationalistic dreams.
I am a patriot. I love Russian air and Russian soil. But we will reach the Ganges River, and we will die in fights, to make our Motherland shine from Japan to England. The Russian people did not achieve their ancient dream of Moscow, the Third Rome.
The ecclesiastical schism of the 17th century revealed that the muscovite tsardom is not the third Rome. The messianic idea of the Russian people assumed either an apocalyptic form or a revolutionary; and then there occurred an amazing event in the destiny of the Russian people. The Third International is not international, but a Russian national idea. The Soviet state called for its citizens to defend the " Motherland "; Stalin proclaimed the slogan " Not a step back! During the Second World War, the strong patriotism of Vlasov's army presented Russians with an alternative to the state-centered nationalism promoted by Stalin's government.
Even when Vladimir Putin started to be in power during the s, he himself addressed that issue, besides being present on official documents Feklyunina The church became a common source of Russian pride and nationalism.
The ruling United Russia party said its view of Russia is that of a multi-national republic and calls for national tolerance one of its key platforms.
Many nationalist movements, both radical and moderate, have arisen in modern Russia. One of the oldest and most popular is Vladimir Zhirinovsky 's right-wing populist LDPR , which had been a member of the State Duma since its creation in Rodina was a popular moderate left-wing nationalist party under Dmitry Rogozin , which eventually abandoned its nationalist ideology and merged with the larger socialist party A Just Russia. One of the more radical, ultranationalist movements is Russian National Unity , a far-right group that organises paramilitary brigades of its younger members.
A rise of radical nationalism in modern Russia is considered to be a result of several factors; the humiliation felt after the fall of the Soviet Union; a response to the activity of ethnic criminal groups from the South Caucasus and Central Asia and ongoing illegal immigration from these regions;   and a reaction to modern, Russian-enforced national tolerance. It is also alleged that the FSB is selectively using nationalist extremism to drive sentiments in the society in desired direction.
Some parties like United Russia use the word as a pejorative synonymous with chauvinism regarding their right-wing opponents. The financial crisis starting saw the anti-immigration sentiment become more accepted in Russia because of an increased concern that immigrants—particularly illegals—would compete for jobs with the domestic workforce, and if not getting jobs, would turn to crime.
Outside Russia, with the fall of Soviet ideology of enforced internationalism, national clashes among the ethnic groups within its former borders erupted. Because of repressive Soviet occupation politics and the privileged status of Russians in Soviet society, some post-Soviet states rejected all things Russian and Soviet as a symbols of occupation, and particularly in the Baltic states and Georgia, with some embracing anti-Russian sentiment.
Following the Russian military intervention in Ukraine , United Russia has increasingly relied on Russian nationalism for support. Extremist nationalism in Russia refers to many far-right and a few far-left ultra-nationalist movements and organizations. Of note, the term nationalism in Russia often refers to extremist nationalism. However, it is often mixed up with " fascism " in Russia.
While this terminology does not exactly match the formal definitions of fascism, the common denominator is chauvinism. In all other respects the positions vary over a wide spectrum. Some movements hold a political position that the state must be an instrument of nationalism such as the National Bolshevik Party , headed by Eduard Limonov , while others for example, Russian National Unity resolve to vigilante tactics against the perceived "enemies of Russia" without going into politics.
Historically, the first prototype of such groups started with the Black Hundreds in Imperial Russia. More recent antisemitic, supremacist and neo-fascist organizations include Pamyat , Russian National Socialist Party and others.
In , the Moscow Anti-Fascist Center estimated there were 40 nationalist extremist groups operating in Russia. In spite of repression by governmental authorities, a far-right extremist movement has established itself in Russia.
The issue in regard to Russian nationalism's relationship with its ethnic minorities has been under subject of study since the rapid expansion of Russia from 16th century onward. Russian conquest of Muslim Kazan have been a significant part of understanding Russia's first step from a nearly homogenous nation into a multi-ethnic society.
Various ethnic minorities have become increasingly viral and integrated into the mainstream Russian society, and created a mixing picture of racial relations in modern Russian nationalist mindset. The work of understanding different ethnic minorities in relations with Russian state had to be traced from the work of Philip Johan von Strahlenberg , a Swedish war prisoner who became a geographer of the Tsarist Russia.
The concept is understood strongly by the learning of various minorities in Russia. The Volga Tatars and Bashkirs , the two main Muslim people in Russia, have long been lauded as model minorities in Russia, and has been historically seen more positive in the eyes of Russian nationalist movement; in addition, Tatar and Bashkir imams have worked to spread the Russian nationalist ideology in accordance to its Islamic faith.
In the Caucasus, Russia gained significant supports from the Ossetians , one of the few Christian-based people in the mountainous region. The Koreans have also been regarded as model minority of Russia, and has been used to colonize in sparsely less-populated part of Russia, this was inherited from the Tsarist era and continued to even today, since Koreans are seen not hostile to Russian nationalism.
Russian geographical adventurer Nikolay Przhevalsky was an ethnic Pole who helped Russia to expand to far east and Central Asia; he also regarded himself as a Russian and developed a racist opinion on non-Russian peoples in the far east and Central Asia. Georgians in Russia have been not very positive of Russian nationalism, with some maintain a neutral or negative opinion.
Soviet Union 's transformation into a superpower was the work of yet another Russified Georgian, Joseph Stalin , whom had a complex relationship with Russian nationalism. Some of Dagestan's revered figures have long been respected by Russian nationalists, such as Rasul Gamzatov , who is one of Russia's most respected poets despite his Avar origin. Germans in Russia have long been treated with privileges under the Tsarist government and many Germans dominated Russian politics, education and economy, including the Tsarist House of Romanov , which also included many German-based figures.

A Crisis of Diverging Perspectives: U.S.-Russian Relations and the Security Dilemma
The article offers a critical overview of nine views common in academia related to Russian messianism. The main premise of messianism which is important for its political dimension, is: Providence has a plan along which History unfolds, and in this plan the chosen one individual or collective has a special role to play mission. The first two components of mission express exceptionalism of the mission-beholder, while the third component refers to the universalistic nature of the calling. This selection of nine views is not a complete catalogue but it does include the core concepts that may be encountered while reading about Russian messianism. The article seeks to verify and put in order the existing body of knowledge on this topic.

Like us, all the European nations have experienced abrupt turning points in their histories, sometimes more than once…. But neither pre-revolutionary France nor pre-revolutionary Germany is separated, in the eyes of Frenchmen and Germans, from their reality by a wall as impassable as that separating ancient Russia, according to our perception, from modern Petrine Russia…. To this day we Russians are deprived of a unified national consciousness. Theoretically, abstractly, we understand that…Peter and his reforms were prepared…but all this somehow seems dry to us, bookish and dead; it comes into our heads somehow without emotion, like the result of a mathematical calculation. In our immediate living consciousness we continue to be split in two, and this half-heartedness lies like a heavy stone on our whole being and on all our endeavors. Kavelin 1. The apparent success of the United States and other English-speaking countries convinced an array of thinkers ranging from Hannah Arendt to Charles Taylor that the acceptance of a common political formula can create a successfully functioning polity with no reference to either ethnic or cultural nationalism.

18. Nationalism in Postcommunist Russia: From Resignation to Anger
John B. Dunlop is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution. His current research focuses on the conflict in Chechnya, Russian politics since , Russia and the successor states of the former Soviet Union, Russian nationalism, and the politics of religion in Russia. One perceptive observer of the Russian political scene, Francoise Thom, noted as far back as that fascism, and especially its "Eurasianist" variant, was displacing Russian nationalism among statist Russian elites as a post-communist "Russian Idea," especially in the foreign policy sphere.
Russia had abandoned its empire in Eastern Europe, the country was transitioning toward a market-oriented, democratic system, and Moscow no longer presented a military threat to American security. But over the past 30 years, each period of optimism has been followed by a significant worsening of relations. The warm personal relationship between U.

Мы вводим ключ и спасаем банк данных. Добро пожаловать, цифровой вымогатель. Фонтейн даже глазом не повел. - Каким временем мы располагаем. - У нас есть около часа, - сказал Джабба.
Лифт, соединяющий шифровалку с основным зданием, получал питание из главного комплекса, и оно действовало, несмотря на отключение питания шифровалки. Стратмору, разумеется, это было хорошо известно, но даже когда Сьюзан порывалась уйти через главный выход, он не обмолвился об этом ни единым словом. Он не мог пока ее отпустить - время еще не пришло. И размышлял о том, что должен ей сказать, чтобы убедить остаться. Сьюзан кинулась мимо Стратмора к задней стене и принялась отчаянно нажимать на клавиши. - Пожалуйста, - взмолилась .
