The Kyivan Rusball, or the Kievan Rusball, was a mighty countryball in Eastern Europe. He sprouts EAST SLAVIC POWER! He was a somewhat loose confederation. He was destroyed by the Mongol Empire-icon.png Mongol Empireball.
Kievan Rus-icon.png Kyivan Rusball is also Ukraine-icon.png Ukraineball in his childhood and teenage years.


He was founded by Vikings from Scandinavia and the Slavs that lived in the area. He used to follow Slavic Paganism, but converted to Orthodox Christianity in 988 AD and became friends with Byzantineball. In 1054, Yaroslav the Wise died and the Kievan Rus-icon.png Kyivan Rusball began to weaken. In 1240, the Mongols from the eastern steppes of Mongoliaball invaded and killed the Kievan Rus-icon.png Kyivan Rusball.

Nowadays, all his clay belongs to Ukraine-icon.png Ukraineball, Russia-icon.png Russiaball and Belarus-icon.png Belarusball.

Russiaball and Ukraineball have a conflict because both of them recognize themselves as the only successors of Ancient Rus. In the past, all countryballs recognized Russiaball as the only successor of Kyivan Rusball through Vladimir-Suzdalball and Grand Duchy of Muscowball and that he had Rus' culture, but when Ukraineball became independent, he said that he is the only son of Kievan Rus-icon.png Kyivan Rusball because Kyivball and several other old Russian cityballs are on his clay. Ukraineball also says that Russiaball rewrote history and is the successor of Golden Hordeball because a lot of Russian lands are on Horde's old clay. Russiaball says that Ukraineball is not a real nation since the Rus' moving in East is historical was proof that Golden Hordeball's clay was conquered/peacefully taken by him. When Ukraineball was part of Russiaball his name was "Little Russiaball" and Russiaball called himself "Great Russiaball," because it is a traditional way to call old and new political centers. Also, Russiaball has many other old Russian cityballs, for example, Veliky Novgorodball, that was the capital cityball before Kyivball and Old Ladogababall, that too, was a capital before him and where Rus was founded as a state.

Belarusball wants peace and according to him, they all together are Rus. Let's hug!
