The author examines how the history of the French Revolution is presented in modern Russian textbooks, and how these interpretations correlate to the current state of the correspondent academic studies. The author comes to the sad conclusion that a huge conceptual gap between the educational literature for schools and the works of professional historians of the French Revolution, which had stated even in the 1980's., increased further. Except some school textbooks written by university professors, the most of such editions are full of various anachronisms and factual errors caused by a lack of knowledge of the modern academic literature on the subject.
