All subjects have theiritself for sale, they are told to carry on the Mansion, buy on the lowestprices and sent to the city ... There, they send and their products.

3.   Urban development. In thisperiod, as in the second half of XVI century., in the Ukrainian lands increasedold city and town and appeared new. In particular, during the second halfXVI - first half of XVII century. were established dozens of new cities and hundreds ofTowns: Konotop, Fast, Kremenchug, Gadyach, Mirgorod, Yagotin, Uman, Borispoland many others. In 40-ies XVII century. in Ukraine were aboutthousands of cities and towns that have lived at least 20% of the population. The largestof population were Lions (15-18 thousand people), Kyiv (15 thousand)Medzhybizh (12 thousand), White Church (10,7 thousand). However, typical of the cities with 2-3thousand people. From the city or state mahnatyvlasnyky received substantial income -Meeting of the artisans and traders fare through the city, a place in the marketetc..

As a result, the peasant turned into an appendage completely deprived of rightsmanor, the subject of gift, sale and purchase.
