ABSTRACT
The article provides information on the monument to Alexander II of Russia at the main square of Sophia in Bulgaria in May 2011, who helped free the Bulgarians from the Ottoman Empire by launching the Russo-Turkish war in 1877. It says that Alexander II and the Russian diplomats were not driven to start the war because of a desire to aid brother Slavs or a sense of altruism but the struggle of Russia for influence in the Balkans. The historical background of the relations between Russia and Bulgaria is also discussed.
