In XVI-XVII centuries the city flourished as one of the main points of trade routes between East and West and from north to south. In 1654, the city's residents agreed on a peace agreement with Russia, if the Jews were expelled, and their property was divided among the inhabitants of Mogilev. Tsar Mikhailovich agreed. However, instead of expelling the Jews, the Russian troops destroyed them after being led to the outskirts of the city. The city was set on fire by Charles XII in 1708 during the Great Northern War. After the First partition of Poland (1772) Mogilev became part of the Russian Empire and became the center of the Mogilev province.
