Summary/Abstract: In Russian and international circles, two lawyers, professors at Saint-Petersburg University – Michael Pavlovich Tchubinskij (1871 – 1943) and Vladimir Dmitrievich Pletnev (1878 – 1954), who emigrated to Belgrade in 1920, gave certain contribution to the later realization of the “Yugoslav principle of uniting”. In 1912, “Slavic Committee” in Petrograd (founded in 1909) was transformed into “Association of Slavic Scientific Society”, which in 1913, because of the war in the Balkans turned to politics. Their activities were met with immediate condemnation of the Government. Then, another “group of progressive scientists, professors and public workers interested in Slavic questions” was formed. Professor M. Tchubinskij was a regular chairman at these meetings. Both M. Tchubinskij and V. Pletnev published their texts in “Interests in Balkans and Government Report” collections of articles (1913). Prof. M. Tchubinskij’s report titled “History of Serbo-Croatian Relations and Intended Union” was published in “Collection of Articles Proceeding Dedicated to A. Shakhmatov” (1916). Yugoslav Committee reissued it in French (“L’Union serbo-croate”, Paris, 1917). For this work, prof. Tchubinskij was awarded St. Sava decoration of the 3rd order by H.R.H. Crown Prince – Regent of the Kingdom of Serbia.
