Summary/Abstract: The Russian Consulate General in Ruse has contributed to the enrichment of Bulgarian literature. The results are not due to formal recommendations and instructions by the Asian Department and the embassy in Constantinople. Above all, they depend on the personal inclinations, beliefs and efforts of some of the Russian diplomats closely related to the Slavophile circles. Since its foundation, the Russian Consulate in Ruse, later General, is formed as a book-spreading centre for church literature and in the 70s of the 19th century plays an active role in the translation and publishing of Russian literature into Bulgarian language.
