Summary/Abstract: The article analyses different ways the Russian autocratic power uses to suppress the free ideas circulation in Russia. Throughout the first half of 19th century and even later the Russian Government shows great intolerance to any opinion that differs from the national ideological doctrine developed under the reign of Emperor Nicholas I. Official authorities believe that criticism undermines the Emperor’s power and thus threatens the stability of the state. That was the reason why Russian Autocracy does not allow even a hint of different point of view to be expressed without royal permission. The Government presents variety of measures to control public opinion – from censorship to arrests and exiles in distant parts of Russian empire.
