The Bryansk-Kursk-Voronezh intracontinental collisional orogen was formed by the juvenile Middle Paleoproterozoic assemblages in combination with Early Paleoproterozoic complexes and areas of reworked Archean crust. The crucial events fall in the time interval 2.1–2.0 Ga. The orogen includes a sequence of second-order, near-meridional orogens, which, in turn, consist of tectonic belts.
