Baturyn Articles

Baturyn Articles. The 1663 agreement between Hetman Ivan Briukhovetsky and the Muscovite government. The Baturyn Articles confirmed the provisions of the Pereiaslav Treaty of 1654 and supplemented them with three new conditions: the hetman agreed to return escaped peasants to Russian landowners, to forbid Ukrainian merchants to sell whiskey and tobacco in Russia (the tsar had a monopoly on them), and to feed the Russian troops in Ukraine. In 1665 the Baturyn Articles were superseded by the Moscow Articles of 1665.
