How were the Russians linked to the byzantine empire?

Byzantine missionaries spread Orthodox Christianity, the religion of the Byzantine Empire, to Russia. The Grand Prince of Kiev converted to this form of Christianity and promised to Christianise the Russians in order to negotiate for the hand of Anna, the sister of the Byzantine emperor Basil II. This was a bold move as never before had a Byzantine princess married to a foreigner. After his baptism he took on the Christian name in honours of his father-in-law. This was the beginning of good relations between the Russians and the Byzantines. Sophia Paleologue, the niece of the last Byzantine emperor, Constantine XI, married Ivan III of Russia in the 1472, after the fall of the Byzantine Empire to the Turks. Ivan III was also known as Ivan the Great for his expansion of Russian borders. In 1510 a Russian monk argued that Russia should be the Third Rome. Constantinople, the Byzantine capital, had been called the Second Rome. Now Russia should become the Third Rome as a Christian Tsardom and the bastion of Christianity in Eastern Europe. The title for the Russian Emperor, "tsar" is actually a corruption of the Latin name "Caesar."
