In 1240, namely on July 15, a battle took place on the Neva River between the Russian squads and the Swedes. The Novgorod detachment was commanded by Prince Alexander Yaroslavich, and the Swedish detachment was led by Jarl Birger. This battle was won by the Novgorodians, thanks to which Prince Alexander Yaroslavich was called “Nevsky”. The victory in the Battle of the Neva helped to stop the Swedish aggression on the lands of the Novgorod and Pskov principalities, and also helped to preserve Rus’ influence on the coast of the Gulf of Finland.
