Summary/Abstract: The purpose of this text is to explore the way in which the theme of Slavdom was present in the agenda of Russian society in the 19th century, to analyze the specificities, which the idea of Slavic unity received in Russia and the evolution of the interest of Russian public towards it. The idea of Slavic unity did not have its own development but remained part of the various socio-political concepts formulated within the imperial society. The interpretations it received were most often related to the striving of the Russian elite to elaborate an ideological framework of the Russian politics towards the Slavs as whole and Balkan peoples in particular.
