Nationalism movements that began in Europe after the French Revolution gradually became effective among the Slavic nations. Panslavism that started as languistic and culturel unity among the Slavs turns into a political unity with the effect of 1848 Revolution and Cremean War. After 1960s Panslavism spreaded quickly among the Rusian intellectuals. Tolstoy and Granovsky in their writings criticised Panslavism as apposed to Pogodin Katkov, Khamyakov and Danilevsky who defended Panslavism and provoked Tsar against Turks. Dostoyevsky who questioned Christian theology throughout his life and was exiled Siberia because of rebelling Tsar, becomes populist, Tsarist and Orthodox at the end of his life. He has negative point of wievs towards Turkish people and Muslims in his works called “Memoirs From The House of The Dead”, "The Brothers Karamazov" and "A Writer’s Diary". Social and political events of the era prevented him to remain objective on the current events of the era. The more Dostoyevsky is a realist writer in narrating human nature the more romantic writer he is in evaluating social and political affairs of the era.
