RUSSKOE SLOVO, (The Russian Word), a monthly journal, founded in 1859 by Count G. A. Kushelev-Bezborodko. In 1859-60 had a reputation as a moderate liberal publication and was co-edited by Y. P. Polonsky and A. A. Grigoryev. Among its staff writers were А. А. Fet, А. N. Maykov, V. V. Krestovsky, L. А. Mey, М. L. Mikhaylov. In June of 1860 publicist G. E. Blagosvetov took over the editorship of the Russkoe Slovo, turning the periodical into a radically oriented publication, with D. I. Pisarev as the journal's leading critic (most of his articles were written during his confinement in the Peter and Paul Fortress). The staff body was comprised among others of publicists and critics P. N. Tkachev, V. A. Zaytsev, N. V. Shelgunov. The fictional section published works of F. М. Reshetnikov, А. K. Sheller-Mikhaylov, N. F. Bazhin et al. The journal was repeatedly harassed by censorship, and enjoyed significant popularity within radically-spirited youth; its circulation went up from 1,200 copies (1859) to a high of 5,600 (1865). In April 1866, following the assassination attempt of D. V. Karakozov on Emperor Alexander II, the journal was suppressed. Blagosvetlov then embarked on publishing the journal Delo. The editorial office of the Russkoe Slovo was accommodated in Kushelev-Bezborodko's house (today 24/1 Kutuzova Embankment), from 1863 - in Blagosvetlov's flat in Dmitrovsky Lane.
