Will you give me some historical background on this event? I tried to find some information online, but it seems that there is little to find in English other than where the city is located.

James, Irenek was a cheef (khan) of some tribes of Enisey Kyrghys (aka Khakas) and Jungars who has offered quite strong resistance during Russian colonization in Middle Siberia. They led typical steppe wars against Russians and often assoulted their forts, including Krasnoyarsk (in 1679)
I could not find the information about those wars on English - just about the tribes and Krasnoyarsk itself.
