Siberia was annexed to the Moscow state after the legendary Yermak trip. After breaking of Kuchum Khan and took the capital of the Siberian Khanate Isker, Ermak in late winter 1583 sent a small detachment of Cossacks down the Irtysh. The detachment, led by Bogdan Pentecostal Bryazgoy (according to other sources - Cossack chieftain Nikita Pan), passing through the lands of the Konda-pelymsky Voguls, went to the "walls" Samara town. Caught by a sudden attack of the Cossacks, Ostyaks retreated.

A little later, after the death of Yermak, under the leadership of governor Ivan Mansurov, Cossack founded at the mouth of the Irtysh on the right bank of the Ob first Russian fortified settlement - Ob town. Thus, the Mansi and Khanty lands became part of the Russian state that was finally enshrined in the 1592 founding of the city Pelym, Birch, and in 1594 - Surgut.
