This paper presents results of palynological studies of the Givetian Stage and of the boundary with overlying Frasnian deposits in the southeast of the Russian Plate. There are five palynological assemblages corresponding to five biostratigraphic zones. The upper boundary of the Givetian Stage in sections of the Russian Plate is discussed.
