Sankt-Peterburgskiia Vedomosti is a valuable source for the study of Russia's eighteenth century. Under the editorship of such men as Mikhail Lomonosov and Gerhardt-Friedrich Muller, the paper's coverage was diverse, ranging from domestic and foreign affairs, science, art, industry, and other fields. During the period of Alexander II's Great Reforms, the daily was leased to an editor of pronounced liberal views, Evgenii Korshe, and it became one of the more prominent fora for progressive thought in the empire. Although its importance declined when Sankt-Peterburgskiia Vedomosti reverted to government control, during its last two decades, when it was edited by the Orientalist Prince Esper Ukhtomskii, it gave extensive coverage to Russian involvement in Asia.
