After the death of his brother Igor sent to Izyaslav Mstislavich, asking him whether he remains faithful to kiss the godfather. Izyaslav did not answer and did not even let the ambassador back because Kievites invited him to rule. Izyaslav moved to Kiev, and Igor summoned the chief of the Kiev boyars - ULEB, Ivan Voytishicha, Lazar Sakovsky, promising them the same honors as they had from his brother, Vsevolod. But Igor was too late: these nobles, together with others - and Miroslav Polochaninom Vasily Andreyevich - have already moved to the side Izyaslav.

Igor drove into a swamp, . his horse bogged, . but he could not go, . because he was diseased in his feet, his squad drove up to the Dnieper, . to the mouth of the Desna and the ferry to Kiev,

In prison, Igor just started to hurt and sent to Izyaslav say: "Brother, I am very sick and I ask for your vows, like I did when I was still a prince, but now I need much ache and did not think it'll stay alive '. Izyaslav compassion, and answered him: "If you had thought postrizhenii, then you are free, but I will already release a sake of your illness". Above Igor dismantled the top of the prison and made him sick to his cell, eight days, he did not drink or eat, but then he felt better, and he took the tonsure at the monastery in Kiev Fedorovsky schema.

Vladimir and Izyaslav Davidovich, . who wanted him to lure and catch, . Kievans already wanted to go to the aid of the prince against the apostate, . but this time someone in the crowd shouted: "For the prince, then we will go with your happy, . but before this is what must craft: as before with Izyaslav Yaroslavich evil men released from prison and placed Vseslav prince himself, . and for a lot of evil has been our city and now Igor, . enemy of our prince and our, . not in prison, . in Fedorovsky Monastery kill him and go to Chernigov for their prince; get it over with him ",
. The people heard it, rushed to the monastery Fedorovsky. Igor stood in the church at mass. People burst into the church and dragged him with cries of: "Beat!" Beat!
