This research paper is devoted to the topic “The Image of Russian Policy in the Far East in the British Press (1905–1907)". It is assumed that it will study the end of longstanding rivalry between Great Britain and the Russian Empire for international influence, territories, markets (so-called "Big Game"). However, the focus will be on the reaction of English society to the completion of this rivalry and the conclusion of the agreement in 1907, which formed the Entente bloc (which included England, Russia and France). Of course, this topic is quite extensive, so the study of public reaction will be based on an assessment of the political events in the British press. The purpose of the work will be to study the reaction of society to the end of the "Big Game" and the rapprochement of Great Britain and Russia. Concerning the structure of the research paper, it will be divided into several parts. The introduction will describe the relevance of the study, its object and subject, as well as purpose and tasks; the problem will be designated, and the geographical and chronological limits of the study will be determined; finally, the characteristics of the used sources and the research literature will be given. In the first chapter, the reaction of society to the end and outcome of the Russo-Japanese war will be studied. In the second chapter the evaluation of English press of Russian politics in the Far East will be reviewed. The third chapter will examine the public reaction to the conclusion of the 1907 Anglo-Russian agreement. In conclusion, the results of the study will be summarized.
