This chapter chronicles how the southwest's Russian nationalists once again successfully set an agenda, mobilized followers, lobbied officials, and shaped imperial policy by placing the Iushchinskii case in its local context. The murder of Andrei Iushchinskii garnered particular interest among the most radical of Kiev's nationalist activists, who had alleged that the murder had been perpetrated by Jews as part of a blood ritual. The case developed into imperial Russia's most notorious anti-Semitic show trial, mobilizing indignant liberals and militant Russian nationalist organizations on either side. Hence this chapter also explores how the flurry of civic activity surrounding the case simultaneously destabilized the Russian nationalist lobby and the empire that it claimed to defend.

Keywords:   Andrei Iushchinskii, Iushchinskii case, Russian nationalists, anti-Semitism, militant Russian nationalist organizations, Russian nationalist lobby
