The Ukrainian-Polish-Lithuanian crew was called in honor of the hetman who betrayed the Russian tsar


At an evening meeting of the Verkhovna Rada deputies ratified creation of military unit of brigade type and assignment of a name of Konstantin Ostrozhsky, joint with Lithuania and Poland, by it - the Lithuanian hetman (in Kiev it is called "Ukrainian" now), whose army together with Poles inflicted defeat of the Russian army in fight near Orsha in 1514.

the Lithuanian prince Konstantin Ostrozhsky in 1500 during fight with the Moscow army for Smolensk was taken prisoner, several years was in exile, however in 1506 agreed to swear to the tsar Vasily III. However, in a year Ostrozhsky changed the oath - under the pretext of a review of troops left Moscow, and then through the woods fled to Grand Duchy of Lithuania.

In the next years opposition between VKL and the Moscow kingdom proceeded.

Fight near Orsha terminated in a tactical victory of the Polish-Lithuanian army and retreat of the Russian army, however the strategic importance of fight was modest. The purpose of the Polish-Lithuanian campaign - return of the lost Smolensk - was not reached, and progress was limited only to occupation of several small boundary fortresses. Nevertheless, fight was widely a raspropagandirovana the king Sigismund I for strengthening of the authority on Europe which reeled after loss of Smolensk.
