Youth Svyatoslav Vsevolodovich was stormy. Early left without a father, he spent twelve years in the service of various princes, participated in all usobnyh wars, changed several counties, but nowhere could not resist for long. In 1157, he received Novgorod Seversky, and in 1164, after the death of his uncle Svyatoslav Olgovich - Chernigov. In 1173, after an argument with Andrew Bogolubsky Rostislavich Smolensky, Svyatoslav sent to Andrew to say on behalf of the Chernigov princes: "Who gave you the enemy, that to us, we are ready to go with you". Andrew took his help and sent a huge army of Rostislav. All the princes who took part in the campaign, was more than twenty. Svetoslav was the eldest among all the alliance of princes, why and semi-ill command of the entire Ratiu. Trezhde all, he turned pro-Yves Mstislav Rostislavich, who locked himself in Vyshegorod besieging it for nine weeks, but did not: he could knock out of the city. On top of failures under Kiev was Yaroslav II of Kiev Lutsk (brother of the deceased in 1170 Mstislav Izyaslavich) and began looking for a great reign. Svyatoslav refused to give him Kiev, gathering, ocheidno, leave it for a. Then Jaroslav started negotiations with Rostislavich: they gave him to Kiev, and he went to Rurik in Belgorod. When news of this at Andreevs allies attacked the great fear. They said that Rostislavich necessarily be connected with Galicians and black hoods and attack them. In the army, came the terrible tumult, and without waiting for the dawn, all rushed to cross the Dnieper, and many people drowned. Mstislav seeing a general flight, left with his retinue of Vyshgorod and struck at the enemy camp, where he took many prisoners.
Rostislavich after victory fulfilled his promise to recognize the seniority Yaroslav Izyaslavich and gave him Kiev. But he barely had time to establish itself here, . Svetoslav in 1174 sent to say: "Remember our old bargain, . on what you tell me to kiss the cross, you said to me: if I sit down in Kiev, . or I'll put, . But if you sit down, . then you put on me, now you got - right there, . asked whether - put me ",
. Jaroslav ordered to answer him: "Why do you want my paternal? You have the party does not need you". Svetoslav sent again to tell him this: "I am not Hungarian, and Lyah, we all have the same grandfather, grandchildren, and what have you to do it the same to me: if you do not want to perform the old contract, then your will".
In the words followed the case. Svyatoslav, uniting with the brothers, suddenly came to Kiev, Yaroslav, afraid to shut in one run in Lutsk, and Svetoslav drove in Kiev, Yaroslav seized all the property of his wife, son, all the squad and sent to Chernigov. But he could not long remain in Kiev, because his cousin Oleg Svyatoslavich attacked Chernihiv parish, wishing, as seen here to be the successor of Svyatoslav. But Svyatoslav, occupying Kiev, did not expect final approval here and therefore would not yield to the former parish cousin. Throwing Kiev, he went to Oleg and, as usual, Pozega his parish. Meanwhile, Jaroslav returned to Kiev. In order to separate the enemies, Svyatoslav refused until the reign of the great and made peace with Yaroslav. Then, having met with all the forces, he besieged Oleg of Novgorod Seversky. Oleg went was to meet him, . but did not have time to put his squad on the boom, . How to apply to flee, the prince himself had to run into the city, . but half of his troops were captured, . other - slaughtered, . fort is burned; Oleg the next day asked for the world and received,
. While Svetoslav settling affairs in his parish, in Kiev sat Roman Rostislavich. But he also could not long to reign peacefully. In 1176 Polovtsians attacked Russia, took six cities and smashed Berendey Rostislav at Rostov. This happened through the fault of Davyd Rostislavich, who started a quarrel with his brothers and prevented the progress of business. Svetoslav hastened to take advantage Trouble Rostislav. In the same year he sent a message to Roman: "Brother, I'm not looking at you, all right, but we have such a number: if the prince is guilty, then pay a municipality, a lord - his head; Davyd fault, Take away his parish".
The novel is not obeyed, then Svyatoslav sent the brothers to take Trepol, and he rose from the shelves at Viticheva, which came to him with black hoods Kyivers and announced that the novel went to Belgorod. Svyatoslav went to Kiev, and sat there, but again not for long: the rescue of his brothers was Mstislav of Smolensk, and Rostislavich announced that the next day will battle Svyatoslav. Svetoslav scared and ran across the Dnieper, because Polovtsy, for whom he had sent, had not yet arrived, and with his retinue odnoyu oppose Mstislav he did not dare.
Despite this, Rostislavich thought it best to give Kiev Svyatoslav. Roman knew, . that he will be in Kiev in constant fear of Svyatoslav, . which has just survived his, . and, . sure, . not abandon further attempts to seize the capital, . therefore be ceaseless strife; allies Svyatoslav - Polovtsians - already appeared to Torchesk and captured a lot of people,
. And Ro-stislavichi, not wanting to ruin the Russian land and shed Christian blood, according to the chronicler, thought, and gave in 1177 Svyatoslav of Kiev, while Roman went back to Smolensk.
Svetoslav felt very constrained in Kiev, surrounded on all sides township Rostislav. In 1180, he suddenly attacked Vyshgorodskiy Prince David Rostislavich, . hoping to seize him by surprise, . but his plan failed and after several bouts princes reconciled on the same terms: Kiev Svyatoslav went, . and the whole Russian land remained in the hands of Rurik Rostislavich,
. Thus, 35 years after the death of his father, Vsevolod managed to establish themselves in Kiev, but the power of the Grand Duke over the years so has weakened, not only in Russia, but also in the parish of Kiev, he could no longer manage on their own. Without the consent of Rurik Rostislavich and Vsevolod the Big Nest Svetoslav not dare to start a single campaign, and understood it. He ruled quietly and calmly, earning the reputation of the wise prince, who are concerned about the welfare of the Russian land. That is it draws a chronicler and so it appears in "Lay". When Svyatoslav Second strife subsided, but then resumed, interrupted by the death of Monomakh, an offensive war with Polovtsy.
