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 February Manifesto, Nicholas II endorses a program that suppresses the established traditions and culture of Finland. Russian laws are 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.
