Summary/Abstract: In the complicated path of elaboration of the “organic regulations” in the early years of the Russian occupation, the nobility (boyars) of Moldavia positioned in relation to the new statute according to internal institutional tradition and, especially, to specific interests. Reform was perceived as a necessity, but Russia wanted it to produce not only a change in institutions but also a redistribution of power within the nobility, that would facilitate his domination. If „the newer nobility” looked sympathetically to the new reform, the lineage nobility has felt threatened and tried to prevent the application of those ideas that harm its interests, especially on the structure of the Public Assembly and its social privileges.
