Truce of Jam Zapolski

Truce of Jam Zapolski

The Truce of Jam Zapolski was a treaty of truce for ten years, which, following the Siege of Pskov, concluded the lengthy Livonian war (1558-1582), and in a larger picture, the 16th century series of Russo-Lithuanian Wars. It was concluded with help of papal legatus Antonio Possevino and was signed in January 15 1582 for the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth by King of Poland and Grand Duke of Lithuania Stefan Batory and for Russia by Tsar Ivan the Terrible, and established a 20-year truce. In the terms of the treaty, Russia renounced its claims to Livonia and Polotsk but conceded no core Russian territories as Batory returned the territories his armies had been occupying (particularly, he gave up on the siege of Pskov and left the town of Velikiye Luki. The truce was extended for twenty years in 1600, when a diplomatic mission to Moscow led by Lew Sapieha concluded negotiations with Tsar Boris Godunov. The truce was broken when the Poles invaded Muscovy in 1605.
