Abstract

In the article the author analyzes the events of 1914 associated with the attempt of the Ukrainian public to honor the memory of his prophet Taras Shevchenko and the ban on this by the Government of the Russian Empire and the Holy Synod. On the basis of the verbatim report of the II session of the IV State Duma in February 1914 the process of considering the request of deputies to the government regarding the prohibition is traced. As a result of this analysis, it was possible to find out the position of the political forces represented in the Duma regarding the "Ukrainian question", which aggravated before and during the Shevchenko’s anniversary. It was concluded that the prohibition of honoring Taras Shevchenko’s memory was the logical step of the empire in the struggle against the Ukrainian national movement, accused of separatism and subversion of the integrity of the "united Russian people."
