Kievlianin, newspaper («Кіевлянинъ»; The Kyivan). A conservative Russian newspaper published thrice weekly (1864–79) and then daily (to 1919) in Kyiv (interrupted from February 1917 to August 1919). Subsidized by the tsarist government, it advocated a rigid anti-Ukrainian and anti-Polish policy. It attacked any expression of Ukrainophilism as Ukrainian separatism. Its founder and first editor was Vitalii Shulgin (1864–78), who was succeeded by Dmitrii Pikhno (1878–1913) and then by his son Vasilii Shulgin (1913–19). In 1869–72 it published Anatolii Svydnytsky’s stories about everyday life in Ukraine.
