Cossacks

Cossacks are a nation of predominantly East Slavic people who originally were members of democratic, semi-military communities in Ukraine and Southern Russia. They inhabited sparsely populated areas and islands in the lower Dnieper and Don basins, and played an important role in the historical development of both Ukraine and Russia. Lately, territories, which were inhabited by Cossacks, were occupied by Russians and then Cossack culture was suppressed by Russian attempts for complete destroying.
