The journalistic paper by Dmitri Filosofov presented here was written during his long stay in Poland. It clearly shows ways in which this brilliant editor and a ‘political thinker’ referred to literary texts crucial for Poles, their culture and self-awareness. In this paper he dealt with stereotypical ways in which Mickiewicz’s poem “Do Przyjaciół Moskali” (“To Our Rus- sian Friends”) was treated in this period. Filosofov, returned to the poem’s primordial meaning and asked questions, still valid today, about possibilities of Polish-Russian dialogue, but he also warned his readers that a dialogue with Bolshevik authorities would never be identical with a dialogue with Russians of anti-Bolshevik social, cultural and political views.
