      Kievan Rus which was founded in was made up of a loose knit alliance between small city states in what is today western Russia. The most powerful of these city states was Kiev. During the early thirteenth century the Mongol continued their march west until they conquered Kievan Rus in Kievan Rus’ legacy. Subsequently, two opposing, often competing, historical perspectives formed and exist until today, both claiming Kievan Rus’ heritage. But the “long historical” road Hrushevs’kyi took was not inevitable. Nor, as Tolochko argues, is the entire concept of “Long” vs. “Short”.

While earlier in his reign Vladimir attempted to organize a pantheon of Baltic and Slavic gods, he appears to have had an interest in the monotheistic religions of some of its neighbors..
