The article analyzes assessments about the Crimean war given by the prominent historian and the conservative publicist of the XIX century Mikhail Pogodin: distri­buted in lists such as Pogodin’s “Historical and Political Letters” for which he had been actively working in 1854—1855, but, however could publish only shortly before death in 1874. Many Pogodin’s assessments about the condition of Russia, strategies of its foreign and domestic policy are still relevant.
