      As late as 1665, the Crimea's demand for continued and increased tribue from Moscow was one of the conditions leading to a peace treaty between a khan and tsar („kaznu v Krym prodolzhat' prisylat' s pribyl'iu“). Notwithstanding Moscow's rhetorical exercises, the Russian government was acutely aware that as long as Russia's military force remained ineffective against the Crimea, peace with Crimea could only be purchased.
