The paper formulates the Eurasian loan words’ problem as juxtaposed that of West European ones for the first time. It also defines some Eurasian Loan words’ features attributed to the general Near East lexical fund as well. The author makes an attempt of explanation of Russian cultural type by means of its correspondence to Russia’s Eurasian geographic situation. Linguistic facts are being interpreted in the context of Westernism and Slavophilism conceptions, which had been most popular in Russian intellectual circles.
