After Briukhovetsky's execution he supported Demian Mnohohrishny as a new hetman and swore allegiance to the Russian tsar.

Samoylovych's principal ambition was to control the Right-bank Ukraine, where two rival hetmans, Petro Doroshenko and Mykhailo Khanenko, were active.

Zgon

In 1677 the Turkish sultan proclaimed Yuri Khmelnytsky a successor to Doroshenko, invaded the right bank, and laid siege to its capital Chyhyryn. Although Samoylovych and Romodanovsky were generally successful in their operations against the Turks, the Russian army unexpectedly withdrew to the left bank on behest of the Tsar Alexis. By that time, the Muscovite government decided to depopulate the right bank altogether and to resettle its Cossacks in the areas controlled by Samoylovych. His son Semion was put in charge of these policies, known as zgon.

Conflict with Galitzine

In 1679 Poland invited Vasily Galitzine (prime-minister of Russia) to join the Holy League against the Turks. The Eternal Peace Treaty between Poland and Russia ran contrary with Samoylovych's plans to annex the right bank of the Dnieper, which still remained under Polish dominion. Samoylovych attempted to persuade Muscovite boyars in the Polish treachery but, failing in his design, sent an angry letter to the king of Poland. Despite subsequent apologies, this incident would eventually contribute to his downfall.

In 1687 Galitzine and Samoylovych failed in their Crimean campaigns against the Tatars on account of steppe fires. It was rumoured that it was Samoylovych who had set the steppe on fire, because he preferred the Tatars to the Poles. Galitzine, meanwhile, was exasperated at Samoylovych's friendship with Prince Romodanovsky, his old political rival, and finally resolved to replace him with a more tractable Cossack.

For their part, the Ukrainian Hetmany [7] (Pylyp Orlyk, Ivan Skoropadsky, Pavlo Polubotok, Petro Doroshenko) were constantly attempting during their successive leaderships to gain autonomy for Ukraine, to unite with the Sich for this purpose and establish good relations with the Crimean Khanate.
