Yuri drove Vsevolod of Pereyaslavl, but sitting here not more than eight days, as Yaropolk sent to Pereyaslavl another nephew Izyaslav Mstislavovitch.

The latter's brother, Sviatoslav, hunted from all sides, have sent Yuri to ask for help. Jury sent to Svyatoslav His son, Ivan. In 1147, Yuri arrived in Moscow to meet with Sviatoslav Olegoviches. The princes had agreed to act together against Izyaslav Mstislavovitch. But the war did not begin until the summer of 1149, . when Izyaslav fought Rostov and Suzdal land galloped expelled from the south Izyaslav Rostyslav, . who told his father: "I heard, . he wants you all the Russian land and black hoods; complain, . Izyaslav that they dishonored, . go for it ",
. Yuri gathered all his strength, hired Polovtsy and made the hike to his nephew. In the south, joined Yuri Sviatoslav II of Kiev and many Polovtsy. With these forces Yuri approached Pereyaslavl, waiting Izyaslav send him with a bow. But Izyaslav crossed the Dnieper and decided to fight with his uncle. At dawn on August 23 began wicked slaughter, Izyaslavovy soldiers broke and ran. Yuri entered Pereyaslavl, stayed here for three days and went to Kiev. Izyaslav left Kiev, not waiting for him. Jury entered the city, where many people came out to greet him with great joy, and sat on the desk of his father
. After the victory Yuri began settled with his nephew, but it stopped for so, . that Izyaslav really wanted the return of all daney Novgorod, . at that Yuri does not agree, especially trying to persuade him not to tolerate Yuri Jaroslawicz, . grandson Izyaslav Yaroslavich,
. Yielding to his entreaties, Yuri said: "Run Izyaslav take his parish - and moved with his brother Vyacheslav and his sons to Lutsk. Here princes stood six weeks and finally made it up: Izyaslav gave Yuri Kiev, and he returned to him all the tribute Novgorod. Negotiations continued in Peresopnitse, and here had agreed to return to each other all captured after Pereyaslavl battle, like the princes and the boyars of. After that, Yuri returned to Kiev and wanted to give this town elder brother, Vyacheslav, but the boyars dissuaded him.
In 1150 Izyaslav sent to Kiev and his boyars Tiunov so that they return the property and herds, captured by Yuri during the recent war. But Yuri did not give them. Izyaslav sent to the uncles with a complaint, they have not responded, and went to Kiev Izyaslav war. Yuri knew nothing about the movement Izyaslav, but when he heard that he had a black hood, ran out of Kiev, crossed the Dnieper and sat down in town Osterskom. This came to his aid and Olegovichy Davidovich, and from the west was his kinsman Vladimirka Volodarovich Galitsky. Hearing of these preparations, Izyaslav Mstislavich hastened to Kiev, and now uncle Slava promised to fulfill all his wishes. But then Kievites not want to fight for him. Yury all Chernigov came to Kiev, and immediately set Kyivers boat swam to him, while others were transported his retinue on this side. Seeing this, Vyacheslav and Izyaslav Mstislavich left town each in his parish, and Yuri sat down again in Kiev. While military action this summer is not continued, the princes had not made peace. Winter Izyaslav, meeting with the force, went to Kiev. Yuri again knew nothing about his movement, suddenly ran from Belgorod his son Boris to the news that goes army. Yuri was at this time on the main courtyard, in a fright, he did not know what to do, got into the boat, swam to the other side and took refuge in the town, and Kiev residents came up with joy to meet Izyaslav. There is very likely the news that George brought to their behavior in their strong indignation, angered and black hoods, which, together with Kyiv residents began calling to his Mstislavovitch. Like last time, gave Izyaslav Kiev Uncle Slava.
Yuri meanwhile sent word Davidovic and Olgovich Chernigov: Izyaslav already in Kiev, go to my aid ". Sviatoslav II of Kiev, Vladimir Davidovich made and came to town to Jury. Together with these allies, Yuri made out of town and stood in the Dnieper, at the mouth of the river Radun, which came to help him a lot of wild Polovtsy. At this time Izyaslav was cautious, did not give the battle to cross the Dnieper, and, therefore, both sides began fighting in the boat, from Kiev to the mouth of the Desna. In this river battle Yuri had no success and so decided to go to ford Vitichevskomu. But Izyaslav with allies walked alongside the western bank of the Dnieper, as his boat floated down the river, so that when the army reached Yuri Vitichevskogo ford, it is already there. was Kiev's Men, and again the battle for the crossing. Then Yuri invited to take an even more distant from Kiev Zarubsky ford. All agreed and released to a ford sons Yuri together with Sviatoslav Vsevolodovich. They suddenly seized the ferry and sent for Yuri. Yuri immediately went to Zaruba and also crossed.
Learning of this, Izyaslav retreated to Kiev. Yuri turned to the shelf and went to meet matchmaker Vladimirka Galitsky, 'a Izyaslav trace. River Ruta Izyaslav caught Yuri; peace talks initiated by it again, has failed because Olegovichy and Cumans not let Yuri tolerated. Started slashing evil, and there Yurev Polovtsians without firing even a single arrow from the quiver, burst into flight, followed by ran Sviatoslav II of Kiev, followed by Yuri with children a lot of their men were beaten, taken prisoner, drowned in the muddy Rute. With the remnants of the troops Yuri moved Dnieper at Trepolya and stopped in Pereslavl. Izyaslav approached Pereyaslavl. Princes fought for two days, on the third day of the besiegers stormed the city and lit the suburbs. Then Vyacheslav with Izyaslav sent Yuri said: "I bow to you, go to Suzdal, and his son planted here, in Pereslavl; with you can not be here, bringest us again Polovtsy". Jury at this time could not wait for help from anywhere quickly, and therefore sent a message to his brother and nephew: "I'll go to town and, . After spending some time there, . go to Suzdal; those ordered to respond, . that Yuri can stay in town a month, . then must go to Suzdal, but if not go, . they pulled him in town the same way, . it is now in Pereslavl,
. Yuri had nothing to do, unwillingly kissed the cross with his sons, he would go through a month in Suzdal and will not search for Vyacheslav of Kiev and Izyaslav. Leaving Pereyaslavl son Gleb, he went to town. Hope, however, did not leave, Yuri, and he could not completely withdraw from South Russia. A month later Izyaslav with allies, as promised, came to besiege the Jury in town. Yuri struggled for a long time, finally he got hard, there was no help from nowhere, he had to kiss the cross, that he would leave in Suzdal, and this time really went.
In 1152 Izyaslav captured the town and burned it to ashes, along with St. Michael's Church. Hearing this, Yuri sighed from his heart, in the words of the chronicler, and began to collect an army. Allies of his Svyatoslav Olgovich he sent to say: "They burnt my Gorodets and the church, so I told them otozhgu for it" - and headed straight to Chernigov. (New Izyaslav Davidovich Prince of Chernigov since Rutskoy battle was unchanged ally Izyaslav Mstislavovitch.) Yuriev Polovtsians rushed to the city, broke jail, and lit all the suburbs and began to fight with Chernigov, which were kept tightly. Two weeks later came the news that Izyaslav Mstislavich rushes to the aid of his namesake to Chernigov. Polovtsi frightened and began to move off the steppe. Yuri and Sviatoslav II of Kiev were forced to retreat. Yuri went to Novgorod Seversky, and from there - to Suzdal.
In 1154 Yuri again gathered in South Russia, but on the way to his troops to open a strong horse deaths. Yuri sent his son Gleb Polovtsy the steppe, and he returned to Suzdal. Soon, one after the other died Izyaslav Mstislavich and Vyacheslav Vladimirovich. In Kiev, sat for a while Mstislavich Rostislav of Smolensk, but it drove Izyaslav Davidovich. Chernihiv. North in Kiev, he gave Pereyaslavl Gleb Yurevich. But Yuri Dolgoruky was impossible to satisfy one Pereyaslavl: only he heard about the death of Izyaslav Mstislavovitch were immediately made in the campaign, went to Smolensk, reconciled with Rostislav and rushed to Kiev. Izyaslav Davydovich he sent to say: "I paternal Kiev, but not for thee". Izyaslav was forced to go back to Chernigov, and Yuri for the second time sat on the Grand Table.
In 1157, Yuri went to the son Izyaslav Mstislavovitch, Mstislav, pulled him in Vladimir Volynskoye, stood for ten days, but left, so anything and not having achieved. Returning to Kiev, Yuri May 10, 1157 at feasting Osmyannika Petrily, the night fell ill and died five days later. On the day of the funeral (May 16) happened a lot of evil, . The chronicler says: Kievites looted yard Yurev and another of his yard across the Dnieper, . which he called "paradise", . as the yard of his son Vasilko in the city, . Suzdal killed in cities and villages, . and their property looted,
. All this shows that George fell very much to the liking of the southern population, since the prince was commanding and devoid of any goodness (for which he is very fond of Izyaslav Mstislavovitch). Even the body Yurev Kievites not 'allowed to be buried beside the body of his father Monomakh, and Yuri was buried in the monastery of the Savior Berestovskii. Much more friendly attitude to Yuri in the north, where he earned a good memory base of many cities and ordering of churches. Decoration Rostov land he devoted the best years of life. They were based in the future such famous cities as Moscow, Yur'ev Polish, Pereyaslavl Zaleski, Dmitrov, when it grew and matured Vladimir on the Klyazma.
