Narva[edit]

I'm removing the picture of the Narva fortress, since Narva was neither a part of Sweden nor Russia at that period and was not involved in this war. 217.159.166.173 19:29, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

Viipuri blast[edit]

Is Viipuri blast, 1495, really a part of this war, as suggested by Abakharev through a merge request. ?? Shilkanni 22:48, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

It seems that now User:Ghirlandajo has merged this blast to the 1496-99 war. I still do not understand how an incident, containing an attack, that took place in 1495, can be a part of a war 1496-99. Better reasons and more solid evidence than now given are needed. Shilkanni 17:44, 13 November 2006 (UTC)

Russia did not exist in 1495[edit]

Sorry? Russia? How could a non-existent nation participate in a war? You correctly refer to the belligerents as Muscovites in the text of the article, but not in the title. Ivan III was Grand Duke of Muscowy, not czar of all Russia (or "Rus", as it would have been known at the time).89.16.85.59 (talk) 21:56, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

Your comment is correct. I have changed the reference from "Russia" to "Moscow" meaning the Grand Duchy of Moscow. I have also added a link to the wikipedia-article on the Grand Duchy of Moscow which lasted until 1547 when the Grand Dukes started to refer to themselves as "tsars".
