The article is an attempt at a critical analysis of some discursive
practices of Russian historical public language belonging to the Russian and
Soviet political discourse. The construction of the language of official patriotism
was an important aesthetic intervention in the language. The success in pseudo-historical
texts can be attributed to a multi-faceted approach on the part of an ideological
writer, an self-taught philologist and an amateur historian. The patriotic dogma
has been elaborated through a quite fantastic linguistic theory and a no less
mythologized theory of Russian and Soviet history.
