His nomination for the Grand-table could be considered and not legally sound: Will Dmitry Donskoy, his grandfather, contained the words, a valid claim Uncle B., Yuri Dmitrievich, at a great reign. Solution of the dispute between the uncle and nephew was dependent on the case from the Grand Duke of Lithuania Vytautas, guardian of the family of Basil I. Based on it, the Metropolitan Photius Yuri bowed to the peace treaty (1425), in which he pledged not to seek the great reign of force, only the Khan Award was recognized authority in the event the Jury resumed its claims. Dependent Vitovta, the Moscow government did not protest held in 1425, Mr.. appointment of a special from western metropolitan. It was not difficult to obtain Vitold abdication (in 1428), Grand Prince of Moscow from an independent policy in Novgorod and Pskov. Yuri had formally (Collection of the State Literacy and treaties, t. I, N 43 - 44) to limit their possessions Galich and Vyatka, to renounce claims to the great reigning undertake not to take on his service in Moscow otezdchikov and t. n. In 1430, Mr.. Vytautas died; in Lithuanian great reigning sat Svidrigailov and property associated Yuri was quick to repudiate the contract in 1428, Mr.. In early 1431, Mr.. Yuri and Basil II were already in the Horde; litigation dragged on there for more than a year and ended in favor of Basil II. By chronicle story, Yuri was motivated by the will of the Don, Moscow boyar Ivan Dmitrievich Vsevolozhskiy protivostavil testament sovereign will of the khan, denying the legal value of "dead" letters. Basil II was put on the table Ordyn ambassador - the first time in Moscow. Yuri Khan was given a town of Dmitrov, soon (1432) taken away from Basil. In this. a critical moment Vsevolozhsky promise to marry his daughter was violated, and in 1433, Mr.. Basil II took the marriage with the daughter of Prince Yaroslav Vladimirovich specific. In addition, at the wedding of Grand Duke, his mother, Sophia Vitovtovna roughly cost his son Yuri, Vasily skew.

In April 1433, Mr.. 20 miles from Moscow Vasily II was defeated and took refuge in the fire, where he was captured. Of all the possessions left behind him one Kolomna. But disagreement among the winners of the Jury was forced to cede the great reign of Basil II (Collection of the State Literacy and treaties, t. I, N 49 - 50). Sons, Yuri did not lay down their arms and soon reconciled with them and Yuri. Basil II suffered defeat after defeat. In 1434, Mr.. he had to take refuge in Novgorod, Moscow was occupied by Yuri. The sudden death of Yuri again split the opponents of Basil II; younger brothers are not stuck to the eldest, Basil Kosomu, and declared itself the Grand Duke with the help of Basil II regained the great reigning. In 1435, Mr.. Kosoy was defeated on the river Kotorosl and associated contract. Regulation of Basil II was not, however, firmly. Strife, a few years in a row disrupted economic life of the Moscow Center, Moscow shaken fidelity of trade and industry, to seek peace. In Tver Shemyaka began to lean toward Kosoy (and was under suspicion in this cloistered). Kosoy himself in 1436, Mr.. breached the contract and spoke against Basil II. In an open battle, he was defeated and in captivity he was blinded, Shemyaka released and complained to preserve. Until now, going purely dynastic dispute, the second attack occurred feuds with both sides under the flag of the national principle. This is facilitated by two factors. Florentine union in 1439, Mr.. created a distinction between the Uniate (at first) and the Catholic Lithuania - and not changed the Eastern Orthodox Rus', at the same time strengthened the aggressive policy vostochnotatarskih hordes, . and Tatar element was to penetrate into the ruling circles of the Moscow Society,

At the same time was not accepted by the union concluded a Florentine Metropolitan Isidor. Khan Ulu-Mahmet, ejected from the Horde to the Russian border, sat down in 1438, Mr.. in Belyov; Moscow troops besieged there, he was ready to accept any conditions, giving the rein to Basil II. But Moscow's military governor wanted to win - and was defeated by treachery sent to their aid Lithuanian governor. Ulu Mahmet seamlessly passed to Nizhny Novgorod, and in 1439, Mr.. made a devastating raid on Moscow, the Grand Duke managed to escape, the stone "city" had survived, but Posada and surroundings (up to Kolomna inclusive) is strongly affected. Nizhny Novgorod, he founded the Horde have Ulu Mahmeta, under siege. We Murom and Vladimir had to keep reinforce the garrison; between them wandered the residence of Grand Duke.

Using the weakness of the garrisons, Mahmet surprise attack on the Basil II at the city of St. George and took him prisoner. Terms of liberation - a heavy ransom (200,000 rubles) and demanding suite Tatar elite - have created soil, . favorable to rise again Shemyaka: relying on the discontent in various segments of society, . He drew on his side of the princes of Tver and Mozhaisk,
. In February 1446. Basil II was captured in Trinity Monastery Prince Mozhaysk: Moscow busy Shemyaka. This brought Basil II and blinded. Supporters found him honorable reception in Lithuania. With the mediation of Bishop Iona of Ryazan, which promised Shemyaka Metropolitan, the new government managed to cause deception in Moscow children of Basil II; together with their father was imprisoned in Uglich. This massacre is not a firmer footing Shemyaka; focus on Lithuanian territory dissatisfied threatening major complications. At the church boyar council at the end of 1446. Shemyaka, influenced especially compromised Metropolitan Jonah, has agreed to release the blind Basil II (1447). Vologda was given to him in paternal and became a base immediately began the movement in his favor. Center it was moved to Tver, .

The degree of stimulation of Novgorod can be judged from the fact that one of his visits Vasily in Novgorod (1460) in the Chamber discussed the murder of Grand Duke (Complete Collection of Russian Chronicles, t. VI, Sof. 2-I). In 1458 - 9 years and Vyatka, in strife 30-ies was standing on the side of George and his sons, was forced to "finish off my forehead on the whole will of the Grand Duke".
