Famous Ukrainian rebel warrior of 15-18th centuries. Correctly written from Ukrainian - Kozak

Also Ukrainian kozaks greatly influenced the formation of Russian cossacks (KAZAK in Russian).
Those had their share of fame much later on in 19-20th centuries.

Around half of Russian cossacks are Ukrainian by blood.
You'd be surprised to know that the famous Russian Cossack dancing is not russian at all. The cossack dance such as GOPAK is actually from Ukraine.

A Slavic warrior caste known throughout Russia, Ukraine and Northern Mongolia. The name Cossack probably originates from Turkic, "Kazakh" meaning either "horseman" or "free man" (i.e. not a serf or noble) depending on context. Both definitions hold true, as Cossack warriors were exclusively cavalry, and actively recruited freed or runaway serfs into their ranks. Going by the Turkic/Mongolian origin of their name, the Cossacks may have originated in Central Asia, and migrated into the Slavic lands as nomads, perhaps on the heels of the Mongol invasions.

Historically, the Cossacks were predominantly Russian Orthodox Christian, but there were a few, especially around Crimea, who were Muslim, and some were even Buddhists from Mongolia.

Most early accounts of the Cossacks come from those who fought them, and recount their brutality and the use of bull whips as a battlefield weapon. Later accounts come from Russian officers who fought alongside the Cossacks during Napoleon's invasion of Russia. The Cossacks fought alongside the Russian army as late as WWI. In the Revolution, the Cossacks aligned with the Czar, and committed numerous acts of brutality against anyone suspected of Communist sympathies. They also carried out pogroms against Jewish villagers, under the assumption that all Jews were Communists. After the Revolution, the Cossacks were persecuted by the Bolsheviks and finally crushed by Stalin.
The Cossacks raided the village.

The Cossack cavalry chased the Austrians down the embankment with their whips.

The Cossack cavalry chased the French into the marshes with their sabers.

A Cossack can kill three ninjas and seven pirates with one lash of his whip.
