Founded by Russian émigrés fleeing from the Bolshevik Revolution, Seminarium Kondakovianum faced the Communist regime's strong opposition during its years of publication. This article recounts the stages of this troubled story - from the journal's foundation with the support of the Ruská Akce (a policy developed in Czechoslovakia in 1920s to welcome middle-class Russian refugees), through its relations with Soviet scholars and institutions affected by Soviet policy in 1920s and 1930s until the late aftermath at the end of World War II, when the last remnants of the Kondakov Institute confronted the Soviet Army first, and, three years later, the Communist putsch in Czechoslovakia.
