Kuban Cossacks - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (621 words)
Kuban Cossacks (Russian: Кубанские кaзаки, Kubanskiye Kаzaki) were cossacks that were settled in the region around the Kuban River to protect the southern borders of the Russian Empire.
In 1933 the Kuban was hit by the massive famine (see Holodomor) and many of the Cossacks descendants have died of starvation.
After the war the Cossacks were once again removed from the military, but not before they proudly marched on the Red Square in the famous victory parade of 1945 (only the Kuban Cossacks were allowed to march, being the largest group).
