In 1319, Michael of Kiev, was executed in the Horde and the Uzbek Khan gave the label on the great reign of Yuri Danilovich of Moscow. The following year, Yuri met crusade against Tver, but there was no war. Dmitry sent to Yuri in Pereyaslavl messengers and made peace, which paid the Prince of Moscow 2000 rubles in silver and pledged not to look beneath the great reign. Two thousand rubles were taken to the Khan, but Yuri did not go with them to meet the Tartar ambassador, and went to Novgorod, where he was summoned to martial affairs. Took advantage of Dmitri. He went to the Horde and procured a shortcut to a great reign. According Tatishcheva, he explained the whole truth, Uzbeks George and especially the Khan's Ambassador Kavgadyya, on a tip-off that was executed by his father. Uzbek ordered the execution Kavgadyya, and deprived of the great Yuri's reign, for the fact that he keeps in his tribute to the khan. Deprived Majesty, Yuri could no longer deal with Tver and the following two years spent in the Novgorod land, not daring to return to Moscow. In 1324 he was called the Khan of the Horde. Dmitri did not want to let a rival, and hurried to the Horde itself.
