The Bessarabia press, especially the one printed in the Russian language, reacted swiftly against the introduction of the new calendar in the Church. The reactions are produced, first of all, the ignorant and faithful conservative mass up to fanaticism -„new style” represent the betrayal of true faith.

Priesthood and secular press did not showed convinced of the justness of the appeared „stylist” movements.
