Changes in the rights of the Ruthenians under the influence of the byzantine empire in the period of the residency of Igor Rurikovich
AbstractHere, we research on the influence of the diplomatic activity of the princely authorities during the reign of Igor Rurikovich. To this end, we conducted a comparative study of the treaty concluded by Prince Igor in 944 with the Byzantine Empire. This treaty defined the rights that the Ruthenians could use in the territory of Byzantium and duties assigned to them. In order to determine the value of this arrangement, we compared it with the previous treaties concluded in 907 and 911 by the regent Oleg. This analysis would make it possible to find out whether this agreement is a victory or a defeat of the Russian diplomacy. The conducted research indicates that the rights of the Ruthenians were partially limited. In addition, additional obligations were imposed on them, not foreseen in earlier treaties of 907 and 911 years. This is not yet evidence of defeat, but of the beginning of weakening of the international authority of the Kievan Rus, caused by internal troubles in the middle of the country and external military failures. In order to stabilize the situation in the country, the successors of the Grand Duke Igor launched a series of reforms.
