The Centre for Historical Research received a grant from The “Fund of Boris N. Yeltsin

The “Fund of the First Russian President Boris N. Yeltsin” generously awarded a grant to the Centre for Historical Research to hold a research project on diaries of Teimuraz  Georgievich Stepanov-Mamaladze.
The “Fund of the First Russian President Boris N. Yeltsin” was founded in 2000. It aims to provide historical and political analyses of reforms in Russia at the end of the 20th century, popularize Boris N. Yeltsin’s activity in Russia and abroad, contribute to international humanitarian work and support of educational, social, cultural and sport and charity projects.

About the project.
The project proposes to publish the historical source, namely the diaries and working notes of Teimuraz  Georgievich Stepanov-Mamaladze. He was the former personal assistant of Eduard Amvrosiyevich Shevardnadze – the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the USSR. A dedicated research team will work on providing detailed commentaries to this source and on its introduction into scholarly activities.

These historical documents have never been published and their location remained unknown even by E. A. Shevardnadze himself. The Steanov-Mamaladze's diaries raise interest not only because they can explain the ways the key decisions were made in the USSR Foreign Policy throughout its last six years of its existence, but they can also show the same processes from a different perspective. The work is planned to be submitted for publication in September (October) 2015.

The research group.
Professor Semyonov Alexander (PhD, Head of the Department of History, HSE Campus in St. Petersburg). Research Assistants and Graduate Students: Ms Kitayeva Yana, Ms Orlova Sofia, Ms Pavlova Margarita, Ms Sokolovskaya Irina.
