The paper deals with the history of Russian poetry in the Harbin of the 1940s. The author argues that the creativity of the last generation of Harbin poets echoes with the lyrics of their mother country, with the innovative search of Soviet authors. One of the major themes in Russian poetry of China in those years is the theme of the Native Land (N. Vokhtin, E. Vladi). A typological convergence is found in verses of constructivists (I. Selvinsky, V. Lugovsky) and texts of V. Kondratovich, the Komsomol lyrics and verses of young activists of Harbin (R. Kolberg), and the poetry of N. Svetlov, E. Bagritsky and creative works of N. Zavadsky's.
Key words: Russian expatriates, literature of Russian China, Russian lyrics of Harbin, parent state (homeland), the Soviet poetry, Patriotic motives, typological ties, literatures influences.
