Actually, Kiev is the ancient capital of Rus, going back to the 8th century or so. But, I'm surprised that you are so supportive of Turkic Muslim invaders in Europe.The Tartars were in Crimea back as far as the 1400s.
At that time Russia was a fraction of the size it is today and it was hundreds of years after the Tartars were established in Crimea that the Russians invaded for the first (but not last) time.
