ABSTRACT
The article discusses the history of the perception of Russians in Great Britain. A set of favorable circumstances gave rise to successful attempts to change the attitudes of the British public towards Russians during the period of about 1885 to 1917. The Russians trying to cultivate a following in Great Britain had a ready-made, willing and expanding audience among British socialists, radicals and certain liberals. Russians had an interest in the reform or even replacement of the autocratic regime in Russia by a regime called "Free Russia." The "Free Russia" regime grew strong among the educated public in Great Britain before the outbreak of the Great War. This led to an embracing of all things Russian by the British: culture, style and politics.
