The adoption of Christianity as the official religion facilitated the unification of the Rus’ tribes and the establishment of foreign dynastic, political, cultural, religious, and commercial relations, particularly with the Byzantine Empire, Bulgaria, and Germany.
Relations with Poland improved after Volodymyr's, son Sviatopolk I, married the daughter of Prince Bolesław I the Brave in 992.
Volodymyr expanded the borders of Kyivan Rus’ and turned it into one of the most powerful states in Eastern Europe.
The Rus’ clergy venerated Volodymyr because of his support of the church, but he was canonized only after 1240. Thereafter he was referred to as ‘the holy, equal to the Apostles, grand prince of Kyiv.’A bronze statue of Grand Prince Volodymyr was erected in 1853 in Kyiv.
