It is a well-known fact that those who came to Constantinople, one of the most important cities in the 9th and 10th centuries, for trading carried political, cultural and religious motifs to their country. Russians, too, began to recognize Byzantine in this way and while they were advancing towards their own national state, they headed for Byzantine due to its generous soil and strategically important geographic location. Though they succeeded in coming up to the front of Constantinople by their military expeditions, they could not achieve a significant result on account of the power of imperial army and diplomacy. However, these attempts led Byzantine to deal closely with Russians. Therefore, the activities of the patriarchs and rulers intending to use religion as a part of the political power of the empire achieved result and Russians slowly began to be Christianized.
