Project Summary

The appearance of a military paradigm of the Russian imperial myth under Catherine II’s rule was a part of her general imperial strategy. The war proved to be the main and the best way to confirm a domination of a newly established Russian empire over all other powers. The project touches upon one of the most relevant topics in the history of the 18th century as the Russian imperialistic war on the southern borders went out at the same time when the war of England’s North American colonies for independence burst out.
