This article is focused on Lev Aleksandrovich Tikhomirov (1852-1923) and his reflections of the Russian revolution in 1904-1906. Once a famous revolutionary, a member of 'Narodnaya Volya', Tikhomirov changed his world-view and became an ardent supporter of autocracy and monarchy in the 1890's. He collaborated with the conservative newspaper 'Moskovskie Vedomosti', was a member of some rightists' organizations like 'Russkoe Sobranie' (Russian Assembly) after 1900 and partook the Congress of Russian People in 1906. Nonetheless he was not a typical 'black-hundred' (chernosotenets). In his diary, he was critical to the high bureaucracy including most of the ministers and even Nicholas II. He was deeply disappointed with the contemporary character of the Russian policy, because he was influenced by slavophilism and neoslavophilism and he was afraid of the future of Russian monarchy. Simultaneously, he refused the revolution like a 'non-Russian' revolution, some of his notes had xenophobic character (aimed mostly against the Jews and Poles). Last but not least, he was full of doubt about himself, about his chances to influence or to change the state policy.
