Summary/Abstract: This paper will tackle the Russian New Right’s thinking about the “Near Abroad”. Renowned political comparativists compete in theorizing the Russian Right wing’s ideas and ideologies, and arrive at novel definitions for “reactionaries”, “conservatives”, “nationalists”, and “imperialists” as applied to the Russian right-wing intellectuals. In place of adding a new drop to an already sophisticated taxonomy of the Russian New Right, I will focus on the virgin lacuna within the Russian ideational space by bringing to light a plethora of intellectuals who, thus far, escaped categorization as belonging to the New Right but rather received scholarly attention within the framework of the tradition of Russian liberalism.
