This abstract analyses mutual political status of the Golden Horde and Muscovite Grand Principality in the beginning of the fifteenth century. The main goal of abstract is to delineate the real role of Muscovite principality in political history of Central Eurasia in the beginning of the fifteenth century. The author examines the arrival of Tokhtamysh khan’s sons, namely Jelal ad-Din and Kerim-Berdi, to Muscovite principality. Among states that were members of the Golden Horde polity we find so called “Russian ulus” — an alliance of principalities of Northeast Russia, which were conquered by Batu khan. The Moscow Grand Principality became the strongest one among other Russian principalities. It took the leading position in contacts with Tatars. Nevertheless, how influential was the Moscow Grand Principality among other actors in political life of the Desht-i-Qipchaq in the beginning of the fifteenth century? The author concludes that the influence of Moscow was minimal and only began to be seen.

Keywords: Golden Horde, Grand Duchy of Moscow, Jochids, Tatars’ aristocracy in the Muscovian military service, political relations
