About this deal
After that, Khmelnytskyi began to conduct active negotiations with representatives of the Moscow tsar. However, from the very beginning of the negotiations, Moscow gave a special place to the subordination of the Ukrainian church to itself. Moscow viewed the Pereiaslav agreement not only as a political but also as a religious union, and began measures to gain full control of the Metropolitanate of Kyiv. Despite the insistence of Moscow representatives, the hetman did not include in the Pereiaslav Treaty on the subordination of the Metropolitanate of Kyiv to the Moscow patriarch. In addition, the higher Ukrainian Orthodox clergy were wary of the new treaty and rapprochement with Moscow. Referring to their duties before the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople, Metropolitan Kosiv and the bishops present at the council refused to swear allegiance to the Tsar of Moscow. But Moscow officials continued to pursue their policies. On the day of the arrival of the tsar's envoy Buturlin to Kyiv, 16 January 1654, Metropolitan Kosiv conducted a prayer service in St. Sophia Cathedral. After the prayer, Buturlin reproachfully asked the metropolitan why he "never beat or wrote to His Tsarist Majesty's forehead about the accession of Ukraine, and did not seek His royal mercy for himself." Most Mets games are carried by SportsNet New York (SNY), a joint venture of the Mets and NBC Sports Regional Networks.  The team's terrestrial broadcast home is WPIX, where the team has broadcast games since 1999.  In their inaugural season, the Mets posted a record of 40–120, the worst regular-season record since MLB went to a 162-game schedule. The team never finished better than second-to-last in the 1960s until the "Miracle Mets" beat the Baltimore Orioles in the 1969 World Series, considered one of the biggest upsets in World Series history despite the Mets having won 100 games that season.  The Mets have qualified for the postseason ten times, winning the World Series twice (1969 and 1986) and winning five National League pennants (most recently in 2000 and 2015), and six National League East division titles.
