Kiev legend

Taking advantage of the fact that Prince Svyatoslav was in march they came upon the city. Sturm take strong Kiev strengthening pechenigs could not, so besieged city. They hid a lot of people from nearby settlements. Exit Kyiv nobody could. Besieged threatened hunger. The last hope was to call for help military garrison, which was on the other bank of the Dnieper.

Inform troops about the danger that threatened Kyiv volunteered lad, who knew Pechenegs language. He passed through the enemy camp by pretending that his horse is looking. Distavshys Dnieper, rushed into the water and swim to the other side. Catch brave Pechenegs failed. Learning about the situation in Kiev, the governor hastily Pretych to help Kiev. The city was saved.
