Abstract
The 'Russian issue' was one of the overriding for President of Czechoslovakia Tomas G. Masaryk. He was well acquainted with works of F.M. Dostoyevsky, I. V. Kireevsky, met with L.N. Tolstoy and V.I. Lamansky. He had initiated Czechoslovakia's substantial aid to the first-generation Russian immigrants in his republic and viewed the developments in October 1917 as disastrous for Russia. The series of his articles "Our problems and the Soviet Russia", written during the 1920s, cautions Czechs against illusions of the Soviet Russia's experience and against following the example of Marxism established in Russia.
