The Great Eastern War, or Polish-Russian War, was an armed conflict between the Polish–Lithuanian-Ruthenian Commonwealth and the Russian Empire.

After the Russian Civil War of 1825 and the ascension of Constantine I as Emperor, geopolitical apprehensions grew on the non existent that influence that Russia had on Eastern Europe over the one the Three Nations had. There was also the treat of the spread of subversive ideas of liberalism and republicanism to Russia that the Imperial Court saw has intentionality promoted and exploited by the Three Nations in the western Russian governorates. The Aegean Crisis (1827-1833) had given rise to Slavic patriotism that Constantine and the Imperial Army wanted to exploit in their interests and to defeat the intervention of the Three Nations with the allies and in the Russian spoils of the Balkans.

The war started as a rebellions of the Lithuanian, Ruthenian and Belorussian patriots sponsored by Russian in their demands for more self government from the Polish majority. A civil war escalates in favor of the armies of the Three Nations that the patriotic societies called for help from Russian.

The victory of Russia led to the dissolution of the Three Nations and being replaced by Poland, Lithuania, Ruthenia and Belarus, the later three closely aligned to Russian interests and diplomacy. The Great Eastern War marked the end of the Three Nations and its influence in Eastern Europe being replaced by Russia. it also gave uncontested access to the Baltic Sea to Russia.
