Cossacks In The Occupation by Temerev

When Cossack genocide is mentioned today, we usually remember the well-known executive order of January 24, 1919, followed by the practice of the physical extermination of the Cossacks. Prior to the adoption of this directive, and after its abolition, the flywheel of terror rotate, taking innocent lives of our people, even when it was not so apparent. Seeing the destruction further mobilized Cossacks to give their struggle a new purpose of surviving. This is the exact reason that the current Russian government has become more cautious in their statements in regards to the Cossack people.

Edward Daniel Clarke's first impression of the Don Cossacks in the 18th Century

There is something extremely martial, and even intimidating, in the first appearance of a Cossack. His dignified and majestic look; his tall elevated brows and dark mustaches; his tall helmet of black wool, terminated by a crimson sack, with its plume, laced festoon, and white cockade; his upright posture; and ease and elegance of his gait—give him an air of great importance. We found them in considerable number at Kasankaia, lounging about their houses, and conversing in such large parties, that it seemed as if we were entering their capital.

Were the Cossacks a social estate class? By Alexander Piven Cossack historian.

In the modern day there is much mention of Russian and Ukrainian history, but genuine Cossack history seems to be of limited interest among historians. This lack of interest allows Russian historians such as Ilovaisky, Platonov, and others, to publish conclusions of Cossack history, which is then accepted as genuine Cossack History. Thus, people tend to believe that Cossacks are a social estate class.
