P.N. Matkhanova
Keywords: the 1860s reforms, Eastern Siberia, administration, liberal bureaucracy
Pages: 3-7


The article analyzes attitudes toward the reforms expressed by the East-Siberian governor-generals and other high-ranking officials. Many of them, including N.N. Muravyov-Amurskiy and M.S. Korsakov, supported the governmental course of reforms. However the top administrators strove for greater independence and biger budget for the Far Eastern regions' development, while the liberal bureaucracy in the capital  opposed both of these initiatives.
