The Russian-Turkish Wars are collectively termed for the three related conflicts that took place around the turn of the nineteenth century. For forty years the border was in constant flux, competition over the stepp lands of the Caucasus and the Christian peoples under Turkish rule created the groundwork for the first Turkish Russian Wars.. These wars are remembered for becoming the backdrop for the future Rumelian conflicts and the backdrop for the War of Ottoman Dismemberment. As the Turks could not maintain balance against the Russians the wars mark the hasty decline of the Greater Ottoman Empire leading to the modern shrunken Ottoman state
