Between War and Terror : Tomáš G. Masaryk, Boris V. Savinkov, and Mikhail A. Muravyov
Languages of publication
This study summaries and evaluates reflections on the relationship between T. G. Masaryk and the Russian politician Boris Savinkov in the Czech literature on Masaryk. It mainly focuses on two key stages: first, the period of the First World War, when Masaryk was financially supporting B. Savinkov’s terrorists and was therefore assigned a share of the responsibility for the assassination of V. I. Lenin; then, after 1918, when T. G. Masaryk acceded to the leadership of the Czechoslovak Republic and supported the exile activities of Savinkov and his family. In the analytical part of the study, there is an examination of the historical-military, political, and ideological context of Masaryk’s relationship with Boris Savinkov, as well as suggestions for other possibilities of ways to interpret Masaryk’s relationships with the SR (socialist-revolutionary) circles in the first half of 1918, with particular regard to the officer Mikhail S. Muravyov.
