In 1173 at the height of the siege Vyshgorod host of the Russian princes, sent here by Andrei Yurevich Bogoliubsky, Yaroslav was under Kiev with a huge army, wanting to get seniority among the princes of southern Russian. But Svyatoslav II Vsevolodovich not want to give him Kiev. Then Jaroslav entered into negotiations with the besieged Rostislavich: they gave him to Kiev and Yaroslav went to Rurik Rostislavich in Belgorod. When news of this reached the besiegers, they fled in panic from Vyshgorod.
Rostislavich after victory fulfilled his promise to recognize the seniority of Yaroslav and gave him Kiev, Yaroslav but not for long sitting here quietly: Svyatoslav began to demand his townships in South Russia. Jaroslav denied. Then, Svyatoslav, connecting with his brothers, suddenly approached Kiev.
