Shortened text of the section. Full text in ukrainian version.

The Sofia 1st Chronicle older recension (S1LSI) reached us in two copies from the 1480s [PSRL, 2000, vol. 6, no. 1]. This important chronicle was the basis of almost all subsequent chronicles of northeastern Russia in the 15th and 16th centuries.
