Summary/Abstract: The instauration of the communist regime in Romania required a long line of compromises on behalf of the Soviet authorities that had taken the power. These were transposed into a series of physical and moral abuses onto the inhabitants as well as into the legitimization of such practice. The orders from Moscow imposed that communist leaders in Bucharest should replace all their opponents that still held positions of responsibility in the state, even at the lowest levels, and that they should solve the issue of cohabitating nationalities in a friendly manner. The only feasible solution for accomplishing these requirements in dul time was to complete a new administrative, territorial, and implicitly constitutional reform.
