The paper discusses the possibility of argument raising in Russian. Although Russian is not a canonical raising language, as English, some phenomena are reminiscent of raising. These are constructions where an element of the main clause can only acquire a plausible interpretation if we suppose that it is generated in the subordinate clause. In the analysis, I use data of previous works focusing on one particular construction. However, in my study I focus on the behavior of pronouns: scope of negative and indefi nite pronouns and possibility of replacement of the subordinate clause with the pronoun èto.
