In actual practice, the decree was extended to many other categories of Jewish population. On 14 July, a secret order was issued allowing for the expulsions to commence but also stipulating the right for deferment for various time periods, with the maximum of one year.

From 14 August to 14 July 1892 3 (depending on deferment terms), Moscow railway stations were overcrowded with great numbers of Jews. Many of them departed to places beyond the “Pale of settlement,” predominantly to the territory of the former Kingdom of Poland (first of all, to Warsaw and †od◊), and to the south, namely to Odessa. According to an indirect estimation made by S. 4 Most of them headed directly abroad, primarily to German seaports. This event, though it seemingly affected only Moscow and was hardly statistically significant, nevertheless had a colossal aftermath, namely, it produced the decisive momentum for mass Jewish emigration from across the entirety of Russia to North America.

Koreans 62 constituted the key ethnic target (although not the only one) of this policy. 6 million Koreans were subjected by Japan to forced labor, primarily on Korean territory: starting from 1944, all children from the age of the fourth school year and older were obliged to work.
