Chapter Summary

The Ottoman direct engagement in the Ukraine led predictably to a limitation of the Crimean zone of political influence. Even a Crimean khan like Adil Giray, regarded as the creature of the Kprls and detested in the Crimean society, tried to prevent the Portes meddling in his affairs and ultimately paid with his throne for this insubordination. The Polish king was surely humiliated, but the Crimean khan did not fare much better. The Cossacks, who had enjoyed the Crimean protection since 1648, now entered direct relations with the Porte and shifted their allegiance from Baghchasaray to Istanbul. The king preferred a rapprochement with Baghchasaray, or even an exotic alliance with Isfahan, to an alliance with Moscow as he knew that the latter would imply the Commonwealths final resignation from the lands lost to Russia by 1667. The Russo-Ottoman conflict was resolved in 1779 by the Convention of Aynali Kavak.
