Considered texts had no luck in the historiography. Historians are very willing to use the Polish works, choosing from them the details for the light the battle, and thus in no way interested in the origin of these reports and their degree of reliability. All of them en masse are considered quite credible, as reports from the scene.

This lightness in the assessment of the source values of news have extremely negative impact on the whole historiography of the Battle of the Vorskla.
