Vasilii Fedorovich Malinovskii (1765-1814) is a reputation which has hitherto lacked real resonance within the heritage of Russian tradition. Tt is naturally a reputation recognized to all scholars of Alexander Pushkin's biography, for Malinovskii was once the 1st Director of the hot Tsarskoe Selo Lyceum, if, unfortunately, for under the 1st 3 of the younger poet's years on the institution.

As regards the of his 'eighteenth-century' Malinovskii, who lived the 1st thirty-five years lifestyles predominantly within the reign of the nice Catherine, little details encumbers the reminiscence of even experts of the interval. certainly, his elder brother, Aleksei Fedorovich (1762-1840), is the likely to be remembered for his literary and translating paintings to boot for his later place as Head of the Moscow Archive of the Ministry of international Affairs, which introduced him into touch with Pushkin and, no longer abruptly, with Karamzin. Karamzin spoke of him as "one of my few previous and actual friends", yet one searches in useless for the same accolade for VasiIii Fedorovich.
