Russian Tsar Nicholas II had appointed Nikolay Bobrikov as the
Governor-General of Finland, who was hostile to the Finnish people,
seeing them as a threat to Russia. Now with the signing of the

given precedence over those of Finland, and the imperial Russian
government claims the right to rule the country without the consent
of the local legislative body.
