The article is an attempt to reconstruct events of 968-971 in the mouth of Danube, what was then the land of the First Bulgarian Kingdom. A careful research of records, including rarely referred to ones, sheds light on particpants (the Russian knyaz Svyatoslav, the Bulgarian king Boris II, Byzantine Emperor John Tzimisces, and the Pechenegs) and relations between them; attention is focused on Svyatoslav and what were his actual intentions in his tentative against Bulgaria. An interesting connection is made between these events and consecutive fall of the First Bulgarian Kingdom.
