  • 1. Pyotr Bagration

    Died: 1812 A.D
    Slogan: The Russian Army always has been success.

    Pyotr Bagration was a Russian general and prince of Georgian origin, prominent during the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. Bagration, a member of the Bagrationi dynasty, was born in Kizlyar. His father, Ivan (Ivane), served as an officer in the Imperial Russian Army, in which Bagration also enlisted in 1782. Pyotr Ivanovich Bagration began his military career serving in the Russo-Circassian War of 1763–1864 for a couple of years. Afterwards he participated in a war against the Ottomans and the capture of Ochakov in 1788. Later he helped suppress the Kościuszko Uprising of 1794 in Poland and capture Warsaw. During Russia's Italian and Swiss campaigns of 1799 against the French, he served with distinction under Field Marshal Alexander Suvorov. In 1805 Russia joined the coalition against Napoleon. After the collapse of the Austrians at Ulm in October 1805, Bagration won praise for his successful defense in the Battle of Schöngrabern (November 1805) that allowed Russian forces to withdraw and unite with the main Russian army of Mikhail Kutuzov. In December 1805 the combined Russo-Austrian army suffered defeat at the Battle of Austerlitz, where Bagration commanded the allied right wing against the French under Jean Lannes. He subsequently participated in a series of unsuccessful battles: Austerlitz (Dec. 2, 1805), Eylau (Feb. 7–8, 1807), Heilsburg (June 10, 1807), and Friedland (June 14, 1807); but, after Russia formed an alliance with France (Treaty of Tilsit; July 7, 1807) and engaged in a war against Sweden, Bagration marched across the frozen Gulf of Finland and captured the strategic Åland Islands (1808). He was then transferred to the south (1809) and placed in command of a force fighting the Turks in Bulgaria (Russo-Turkish War of 1806–12). When Russia and France renewed their hostilities (1812), he was given command of the 2nd Russian Army in the West. Although his troops were defeated by the French at Mogilyov and separated from the main Russian army in July, he saved them from destruction and rejoined the main force in August. On Sept. 7, 1812, at the Battle of Borodino, near Moscow, Bagration commanded the left wing of the Russian forces and was fatally wounded. A monument was erected in his honour by Emperor Nicholas I on the battlefield of Borodino.

  • 2. Vladimir Zhirinovsky

    Died: 2022 A.D
    Slogan: The more enemies, the more honor.

    Vladimir Zhirinovsky was a Russian politician and lawyer who founded and led the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR) from 1992 to 2022. He was also a member of the State Duma since 1993 and served as its deputy chairman from 2000 to 2011. He was known for his fiery Russian nationalism and broad anti-Semitic asides, as well as his provocative and often outrageous statements and actions. He ran for the Russian presidency six times, but never won more than 10% of the vote. He was also a delegate in the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe from 1996 to 2008, where he frequently clashed with other members over human rights and democracy issues. He died of a heart attack in 2022, at the age of 75. He was buried with state honors in the Novodevichy Cemetery in Moscow.

  • 3. Pyotr Stolypin

    Died: 1911 A.D
    Slogan: We need a great Russia, and a great Russia cannot be without order.

    Pyotr Stolypin was a Russian statesman who served as the third prime minister and the interior minister of the Russian Empire from 1906 until his assassination in 1911. He is best known for his agrarian reforms that aimed to create a class of prosperous and loyal peasant landowners. He also introduced a system of martial law to suppress the revolutionary movement and restore order in the country. He was a staunch monarchist and a supporter of Nicholas II, whom he tried to persuade to adopt a more constitutional form of government. He was regarded as one of the most capable and influential politicians of Imperial Russia, and his reforms had a lasting impact on the Russian society and economy. He was assassinated by a socialist-revolutionary terrorist, Dmitry Bogrov, at the Kiev Opera House.

  • 4. Grigori Rasputin

    Died: 1916 A.D
    Slogan: A man who suffers much will know much.

    Grigori Rasputin was born in 1869 in Pokrovskoye, a village in Siberia, to a peasant family. He had a religious conversion experience at age 18, and became a wanderer and a pilgrim, visiting various monasteries and holy sites. He claimed to have mystical visions and healing abilities, and gained a reputation as a holy man and a prophet. He also practiced a form of sexual mysticism, believing that sinning and repenting brought one closer to God. He arrived in Saint Petersburg in 1903, where he attracted the attention of some religious and social leaders. He was introduced to the imperial family in 1905, and soon became a trusted friend and adviser of Nicholas II and Alexandra, who were impressed by his charisma and his apparent ability to stop the bleeding of their son Alexei, who had hemophilia. Rasputin had a great influence on the decisions of the royal couple, especially on matters of religion, education, and foreign policy. He also had many enemies and critics, who accused him of being a charlatan, a spy, a debauchee, and a power-hungry manipulator. He was involved in several scandals and controversies, and survived several assassination attempts. He was finally killed in 1916 by a group of noblemen led by Prince Felix Yusupov, who lured him to his palace and poisoned, shot, stabbed, and drowned him. His death was seen by some as a sign of the impending doom of the Russian Empire and the Romanov dynasty, which collapsed a few months later in the February Revolution of 1917. Rasputin remains a fascinating and enigmatic figure in Russian history and culture.

  • 5. Alexander Gorchakov

    Died: 1883 A.D
    Slogan: Russia is not angry, Russia is concentrating

    Alexander Gorchakov was born in 1798 in Haapsalu, a town in present-day Estonia. He was educated at the Tsarskoye Selo Lyceum, where he befriended the poet Alexander Pushkin. He entered the diplomatic service in 1817 and participated in several international congresses. He became the Russian ambassador to Austria in 1854 and played a key role in the negotiations that ended the Crimean War. He was appointed as the foreign minister of the Russian Empire in 1856 and held that position until 1882. He also served as the imperial chancellor from 1866 to 1882. He pursued a policy of restoring Russia's influence and prestige in Europe and Asia, and established friendly relations with France and Prussia. He renounced the restrictions imposed on Russia by the Treaty of Paris (1856) and formed a defensive alliance with Germany and Austria-Hungary (the Three Emperors' League). He also supported the liberation movements in the Balkans and the Caucasus, and opposed the expansion of the British Empire in Central Asia. He was involved in the negotiations that led to the Treaty of San Stefano (1878) and the Congress of Berlin (1878), which reshaped the map of the Ottoman Empire.

  • 8. Ivan Bagramyan

    Died: 1982 A.D
    Slogan: The railway is the main artery of civilization.

    Ivan Bagramyan was a Russian engineer and explorer who played a significant role in the expansion of the Russian Empire in Central Asia. He graduated from the Corps of Railway Engineers in 1856 and participated in the construction of several railways in Russia and Europe. He also served in the Russian army during the Crimean War and the Russo-Turkish War of 1877-1878. He was awarded the Order of St. George and the Order of St. Vladimir for his military achievements. In 1880, he was appointed as the chief engineer of the Transcaspian Railway, which was intended to connect the Caspian Sea with the Amu Darya river and secure the Russian control over the region. He supervised the construction of the railway from 1881 to 1886, overcoming many difficulties and challenges, such as harsh climate, hostile tribes, and lack of resources. He also conducted extensive geographical and ethnographic studies of the area, producing detailed maps and sketches, as well as scientific publications. He was the first European to explore the Karakum Desert and the Kopet Dag mountains, and he discovered several ancient ruins and monuments. He also established friendly relations with the local rulers and peoples, such as the Emir of Bukhara and the Turkmen tribes. He was honored by the Russian Geographical Society and the Royal Geographical Society for his contributions to the exploration of Central Asia. He later became involved in the planning of the Trans-Siberian Railway, which was his lifelong dream. He died of pneumonia in 1899, at the age of 63. He was buried in the Alexander Nevsky Lavra in St. Petersburg. He is widely regarded as one of the most prominent and influential engineers and explorers of his era.

  • 9. Vasily Vereshchagin

    Died: 1904 A.D
    Slogan: War is not pretty.

    Vasily Vereshchagin was born in 1842 as a serf of Count Munnich. He showed an early talent for drawing and painting, and studied at the Imperial Academy of Arts in St. Petersburg. He became one of the most famous Russian war artists and one of the first Russian artists to be widely recognised abroad. The graphic nature of his realist scenes led to many of them never being printed or exhibited. He travelled extensively and witnessed many wars and conflicts, such as the Turkestan Campaign, the Russo-Turkish War, the Balkan Wars, and the Russo-Japanese War. He painted many scenes of battles, sieges, and atrocities, as well as portraits of soldiers and civilians. He also painted some landscapes and religious subjects. He was a pacifist and a critic of war, and his paintings often conveyed a message of anti-war and humanism. He died in 1904 from an explosion on a Russian battleship during the siege of Port Arthur in China. He is regarded as one of the most original and influential Russian painters of the 19th and early 20th centuries.

  • 10. Aleksei Brusilov

    Died: 1926 A.D
    Slogan: The Iron General never gonna stop.

    Aleksei Brusilov was a Russian and later Soviet general most noted for the development of new offensive tactics used in the 1916 Brusilov Offensive, which was his greatest achievement. The innovative and relatively successful tactics used were later copied by the Germans. Born into an aristocratic military family, Brusilov trained as a cavalry officer, but by 1914 had realized that cavalry was obsolete against modern weapons of warfare such as machine gun and artillery. Historians portray him as the only First World War Russian general capable of winning major battles; his offensive strategy helped eliminate the Austro-Hungarian Empire as an independent fighting force. However, his victories resulted in heavy casualties that seriously weakened the Russian army, which was unable to replace its losses. Despite his noble status and prominent role in the Imperial Russian Army, he sided with the Bolsheviks in the Russian Civil War and aided in the early organization of the Red Army until retiring in 1924. Brusilov is one of the prominent Russian commanders in history, although not regarded as especially brilliant, he was pragmatic and open to change based on experience; his eponymous offensive succeeded in part from his willingness to properly train and prepare his troops, including in modern artillery and air reconnaissance.
