Ivan Sergeyevich Aksakov (Russian: Ива́н Серге́евич Акса́ков; October 8 [O.S. September 26] 1823, Nadezhdino, Orenburg Governorate - February 8 [O.S. January 27] 1886, Moscow) was a Russian littérateur and notable Slavophile.
Ivan took part in the Crimean War, and promoted the ideas of Pan-Slavism in the Russian press during the Russo-Turkish War, 1877-1878. D.S. Mirsky considered him the finest Russian journalist, after Alexander Herzen. Aksakov also wrote the first biography of his father-in-law, the Slavophile poet Fyodor Tyutchev.
