Russian government policy in Kalmykia in the second half XIX – early XX century

The author considers the trustee system of Kalmykia management that was formed since the mid XIX century. It was a reflection of the Government's policy that was directed to replace national authorities by unified empire-wide authority and control. It is concluded that the produced then in the second half of the XIX – early XX century transformation isn’t the radical reconstruction and was the continuation and development of state traditions  in the non-Russian management.
