  • The author emphasizes the importance of the historical research of the civil officialdom in
    the Ukrainian lands during the period of the Russian Empire. The range of the most underinvestigated
    aspects of this subject has been specified: social structure of Ukrainian
    officialdom; the process of Ukrainian service elite’s joining into the bureaucracy of the
    Russian Empire in the end of the eighteenth century; education level of the state officials in
    the Ukrainian lands; types of violations and abuses and their reasons; officials’
    encouragement system. The conclusion is made that during the second half of the eighteenth
    century – first half of the nineteenth century Ukrainian civil se rvants managed to save a
    number of specific features of sociocultural nature which distinguished them against the general
    background of the Russian Empire bureaucracy.
