Jews are expelled from the Ukraine on the orders of Empress Catherine I of Russia.

This ukase (a formal Russian proclamation), promulgated through the Supreme Secret Council, decrees that

"the Jews, both of the male and the female sex, who have settled in the Ukraina and in other Russian cities, be deported immediately from Russia beyond the border, and in no circumstances be admitted into Russia, of which fact they shall in all places be strictly forewarned."

The Jews being exiled are forbidden from taking gold or silver coins with them.
