Vsiakaia Vsiachina

Vsiakaia Vsiachina


(All Sorts of Things), a Russian weekly magazine, published in 1769. In 1770, 18 issues appeared under the title Baryshek vsiakiia vsiachiny (Out of Plenty of All Sorts of Things). The anonymous editor was Catherine II. Vsiakaia vsiachina ridiculed the ways of the dvorianstvo (nobility or gentry), but it came out against opposition sentiments, defended moderate and moralizing satire, and sharply attacked the progressive satirical magazines of N. I. Novikov.
