Return to Krasnodar

On 15 September 2008, a remarkable, though little-publicized event took place in Prague at the Dormition Chapel, in Olšany Cemetery. There, in the heart of Prague's largest graveyard, Kuban Cossacks gathered to bring the remains of Fyodor Shcherbina, first historian of the Kuban Cossacks, home to Krasnodar, in Russia. A pannikhida (memorial service) was held, and Vova Pomortsev of Photo Polygon was there to capture it all on film.

I am not sure if you have any interest in Russia's history, but if so, General Anton Denikin's memoir 'The White Army' presents an interesting view of the Kuban Cossacks...
