Union of Russian People[edit]

Alexander Trishatny was one of the founders of the Union of the Russian People, who had set up their organization on November 8 [O.S. October 26] 1905 in Petersburg. Trishatny was chosen as one of two deputy chairmen of the URP, and was an organizer of an extensive regional network of URP local branches throughout the whole Russian Empire. It was on December 6 [O.S. November 23] 1905 when Trishatny with I. N. Katzaurov set up the first URP peripheral city branch in Yaroslavl. Alexander Dubrovin, the URP chairman says about 60 peripheral party branches set up at the start-up period through the country due to the efforts of Trishatny.

On January 4 [O.S. December 23] 1906 Alexander Trishatny attended, in a delegation of his party, the reception of czar Nicholas II. At this reception Trishatny gave a speech having read out a letter to the czar from the URP members of Yaroslavl, as a leader of this branch. The central point of this address to Nicholas II was a question, whether he shall preserve the foundations of autocracy in Russia. It is said, that the czar answered that "soon the sun of truth will shine over Russia and new laws will be issued that shall soothe everybody and dispel all doubts."

Alexander Trishatny is also named among those who wrote the Charter of the URP. In October 1906 Trishatny developed a guidance document Programme of organizational activities for the members of the Union of Russian People (Russian: «Программа работ по организации членов Союза Русского Народа»).

The organizational structure he proposed (and later, introduced) was a paramilitary network. Each 10 members composed desyatka ("ten") which was a primary unit under the command of desyatnik. Each 10 "tens" constituted a sotnya ("hundred") subordinated to sotnik; each 10 "hundreds" constituted a tysyacha ("thousand") subordinated to tysyachnik (modernized word tysyatsky).
