The Cossack revival

Cossacks never forgot who they are, and always waited for a chance to restore their pre-soviet status. Currently there are hundreds of Cossack organizations with hundreds of thousands participants in Russia. Current Cossack movements seek the revival of the Cossack traditions and structures, and bringing up new generations of Cossacks as their most important goals .

There is a good description of one of the Cossack communities written by a Western European expert on Imperial Russia, Baron August von Haxthausen. I am glad I can use an extract from his book, because I love Cossacks I am of Cossack blood and my opinions are probably biased. But one can not say that the German baron loves Cossacks because he is one of them. I hope that the extract I suggest here is quite impartial and objective. So, if you want to read about the Ural Cossack community, click here. Cossacks are also briefly mentioned in the same book in the chapter "The Mission Of Russia". If you decide to read this chapter, remember that the book was written about Imperial Russia, and it was something quite different from the Soviet Union, which had nothing to do with The Mission Of Russia, and was rather the manifestation of the opposite.
