He became professor of Slavic studies at the University of Geneva (1951 - 1961). Subsequently, he continued his career in Washington, D.C. Soloviev concluded his doctoral studies in Belgrade in 1928, and his thesis was on the legislature of Serbia on Stefan Uroš IV Dušan of Serbia. For a short time, he also lectured at the University of Lvov, where he published his research on Dušan's Code in Polish. His father, Vasili Fyodorovich Soloviev, was a judge at the Appellate Court in Warsaw. His son Alexander worked at the Library of Congress in Washington D.C.
