in the Kuban region in the years of the war there were fierce battles. One of the brightest pages in the battle for the Caucasus became famous Kushchevskaya battle – the last in the history of the world wars cavalry attack by the lava. Then, the hot summer of 1942, the Germans were eager to Stalingrad, Kuban bread and the Caucasian oil. Delay the enemy in any way for at least a day and allow the red army retreated behind don, to prepare the defense, was ordered Cossack cavalry corps. But they delayed the Nazis for three days. More than two thousand Cossacks were killed in Kushchevskaya battle, but the enemy suffered huge losses.

Established in 1967 on the outskirts of the village monument “Cossack guards” – the fourth of the Kuban Cossack cavalry corps – became the hallmark of the Kuschevskiy district. Sculpture of a rider on a rearing see all who is going on the Federal highway M4 “don”. And behind him now – the whole field of the Cossack Fame – a memorial history of the Cossacks, chapel, courtyard with subjects of the Cossack life and farm buildings. And in mid-April, the village of Kushchevskaya was awarded the honorary title of “Frontier of military valour”. The head of municipality Igor Guzeev immediately opened his account in the Instagram category with the same name. He publishes pictures of heroes, lived up to the 75-th anniversary of Victory. They are few, but each fate – the legend.

Andrei lazko from the village Kislyakovskaya fought in the legendary 4th guards Cossack cavalry corps in the position of squad leader. This is the 17-th Cossack cavalry corps, which for the defence and the attack under Kushchevskaya was awarded the title of the 4th guards. However, in the legendary horse attack Andrei Andreevich did not participate, having joined the corps in 43-m to year, after the liberation of the Kuban. On your favorite horse Orlik, who became his best friend, he walked hundreds of kilometers, liberating Ukraine, Romania, Hungary and Czechoslovakia. And the victory over the Nazis 20 years Kuban Cossack met in Prague.

And in the 14-30 the head of Kushchevsky rural settlement Evgeny Firsov together with a creative group of local DC will come up with a personal congratulatory message to the house No. 87 in the lane may day. Living here Vladimir Ivanovich Popov, the amazing destiny of which “RG” wrote. He was barely 15 when he came to funerals of his father. And the tall boy, attributing his age, ran away from home and went to the front. It happened that two medals “For courage” found it not even after years and decades after the war.

In 1983, Vladimir Ivanovich Popov found the first medal of the distant 1944. And his second “Bravery” sought out employees of the district Museum. They found that combat award many years ago was wrongly awarded full namesake – Popov Vladimir Ivanovich – from the neighboring region. The veteran received someone else’s medal, long dead. Who showed carelessness, now there is no point to find out. Much more importantly, the efforts of employees Kuschevskiy historical Museum unfortunate mistake was corrected. And on the ninth of December 2015 – the heroes of the Fatherland Day, Vladimir Ivanovich was awarded the second medal “For Courage”. We wrote about this in the framework of the campaign “Stars of Victory”, which is “RG” conducted jointly with the defense Ministry.
