A single glance at this map is enough to understand – the mythical border "S. Báthory's grant" fully comply actual possession of the Cossacks in the Russian Empire as of 1740th years. This is a top secret which could not parse historians over the last 260 years – from the onset of UBKh until the time of writing my article.
Conclusion: Borders of "S. Báthory's grant" outlined in the UBKh completely contrary to the historical realities of the 16th century. Instead they are fully consistent with the historical realities of the mid-18th century.
