no beards for men, no long sleeves for men, changes Russian calendar to west calendar, newspapers about non Russian events, similar economic policies to west as he began to depend on agriculture of crops, started mercantilism in Russia set up government limiting power to the nobles similar to France (Senate and administrative colleges) Holy Synod set up which is similar to England
