Historical note: In the difficult time of the Turkish War, the military forces of Russia were also required to suppress the Pugachev uprising. The nobility, frightened by him, pushed the tsarina to conclude peace as soon as possible, but the Russian proposal, even with great concessions, was rejected by Turkey at the talks in Bucharest.Then Catherine II granted Rumyantsev "all powers", so that only he would force the Sultan to persuade him to peace. Using this right, the army commander began to act at his discretion and inflicted a number of crushing blows on the Turks in 1774: A.V. Suvorov defeated the 40,000th Turkish army near Kozludzhia, Kamensky M.F.blocked the main forces of the Turks near Shumla and approached the headquarters of the vizier; P.S. Saltykov dealt a strong blow near Turtukai and surrounded Ruschuk, at that time Zaborovsky’s detachments advanced far beyond the Balkans and defeated the enemy’s four thousandth grouping.Such swift actions of the Russian troops caused a panic in Constantinople and forced the Sultan to request a truce. But Rumyantsev did not want to hear about it. He demanded that the peace treaty be signed "within five days," ... and not to interpret the articles about which so much has already been interpreted ... ". Arriving in KyuchukKaynardzhi of Turkish diplomats, he warned that he would not stop the offensive until the proposed peace treaty was signed. So Rumyantsev solved the problem of ending the war, "... holding in one hand a pen for signing peace, and in the other with a sword to force the enemy to do it his own way," wrote the Russian envoy in Constantinople.The peace treaty was signed on July 10, 1774, under the terms of which the Black Sea lands were returned to Russia up to the Southern Bug, as well as the city of Kerch, Yenikale and Kinburn fortresses. Russian ships could now freely navigate the Black Sea, pass through the Turkish Straits into the Mediterranean Sea, "... approach the Turkish marinas,sail along the Danube ", and the merchants began to enjoy the same rights as England and France. In honor of such achievements made by the courage of Russian soldiers, Catherine II generously rewarded the command and officers of the army. Suvorov was first introduced personally to the Empress and awarded a gold sword showered with diamonds .Army commander General Field Marshal Rumyantsev was especially noted, and the rank and file were “granted” a diamond-shaped medal, which was the first award of the lower ranks worn on the ribbon of the new military order of St. Great Martyr George the Victorious.
