Could there be any connection between the Zulus and the Kazakhs as early as the 19th century? Between remote parts of Russia and South Africa?

And this led to contacts direct or indirect. The available evidence is fragmentary, often contradictory and sometimes difficult to interpret. But it is there.
Императора Александра I, несомненно, можно назвать самой загадочной и противоречивой фигурой среди русских государей XIX столетия. Республиканец по убеждениям, он четверть века занимал российский престол. Победитель Наполеона и освободитель Европы, он вошел в историю как Александр Благословенный - однако современники, а позднее историки и писатели обвиняли его в слабости, лицемерии и других пороках, недостойных монарха. Таинственны, наконец, обстоятельства его ухода из жизни. О загадке императора Александра рассказывает в своей книге известный писатель и публицист Александр Архангельский.

The present issue covers the years 2008 to 2009 and consists of three sections and an appendix. The first section outlines some main contents of conceptual articles on Africa published in authoritative Russian journals. The second one offers synopses of books by Russian authors on history, economics, cultural anthropology, social and political development, and international relations of African countries. The third section contains information on the most significant events in African Studies in Russia (conferences, symposia, etc.). The appendix provides a bibliography of publications on Africa published in Russia in 2008–2009. The main objective of the series of compilations, which come out every 2–3 years, is to introduce new findings of Russian Africanists to interested foreign scholars who do not speak Russian.
