Abstract. The article deals with the Proclamation of Neutrality issued 22 April, 1793. There is a considerable disregard of its significance in both the United States and Russia. The study throws light on the circumstances of its adoption and provides analysis of the text. The author believes that the Proclamation marked a significant step in the formation of the U.S. foreign policy doctrine, which showed a remarkable stability and continuity in the last quarter of the 18th century. The article is aimed at demonstrating the public debate, which was exacerbated by the Proclamation and played an important part in the formation of the first U.S. political parties – the Federalists and Republicans.

Key words: Proclamation of Neutrality, Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, Republicans, Federalists.
