Krasnodar, 21 March – Yug Times. Five years ago, the Kuban Cossacks again performed their historical mission - to defend Fatherland - and helped return the originally Russian land of Crimea. On March 18, 2014, upon signing an interstate agreement, Crimea officially entered the Russian Federation. This fact became a real triumph of historical justice. Nikolai Doluda, Ataman of the Kuban Cossack Host, Cossack General: “Dear Cossack brethren, dear compatriots from Kuban and Crimea,
“We are now celebrating a jubilee of an important event that cannot be recalled without awe, without pain and despair, without fear for the lives of Crimean people and their children. But at the same time they felt sincere feelings of joy because of their land’s returning back to its native haven - to Russia. I am very glad that Cossacks of the Kuban Cossack Host were fully privy to this historic event.
