The study of A.Zakaryan is focused on the relations of the late XIX – early XX century Russian writers (Konstantin Balmont, Valery Brusov, Alexander Kulebyakin, Sergey Gorodet-sky, Boris Lazarevsky) with Hovhannes Tumanyan, the classic of the Armenian new literature. They got an indelible impression of Tumanyan, treated him with love, respect and honour. Russian writers characterized the Armenian poet as a most noble personality with extraordinary human qualities. H.Tumanyan highly estimated the input of Russian writers and intelligentsia in the human history. This was mostly conditioned with the fact that Tumanyan was a convinced adherent of the Russian orientation among the Armenian people.
