Having finished with Novgorod, Ivan rushed to Moscow. His position was very difficult - from all sides came the news that Russia is moving in the Khan Big Horde. In fact, Russia is independent of the Horde for many years, but technically the last word has not yet been told. Russia grew stronger - Horde weakened, but remained a formidable force. In 1480 Ahmad Khan, when he heard of the revolt of the Grand Duke and the brothers agreed to act in concert with Casimir of Poland, spoke at the Moscow prince. After receiving news of the movement Akhmat, Ivan sent troops to Oka, and he went to Kolomna. But Khan, seeing that the Oka placed strong shelf, took the direction to the west, to the Lithuanian soil, to penetrate through the ownership of Moscow Ugra; Then Ivan told his son Ivan and his brother Andrew Lesser rush back; princes executed orders came to Ugra first Tatars robbed fords and transfers. Achmat, did not start up for Ugra, all summer boasted: "God will give you the winter, when all the rivers will, many roads will be on Russia." He was standing on the Ugra until 11 November, apparently waiting for the promised Lithuania's assistance. But then we began severe frosts, so it was impossible to endure; Tatars were naked, barefoot, ragged over the summer. The Lithuanians did not come, the abstract attack Crimeans, and Ahmad decided not to pursue the Russian farther north. He turned back and went back to the steppe.
