Abstract
The article examines Russian-Finnish relations on the eve of the XX century. Author regards the description of Russian-Finnish relations by the official historian and politician M. M. Borodkin as a part of the imperial narrative. The article studies the cases of “lese-majesty” and the issue of possible ideological role of publications, judicial reports on the cases of lese-majesty in Finland in the scenario of Russian power in 1907—1910. Author concludes that the ideological construction of the conflict between the metropolitan area and outskirts of the Empire shaped the pumped political pressure and national hostility.
