The past and present

This show was held at the Red Square in Moscow in 2014. Kremlin Equestrian Riding School and the Cavalry escort of the Presidential Regiment presented program “Traditions of Russia” at the International Military Music Festival “Spasskaya Tower”. Russian Cossacks were warriors and defenders of the Fatherland at past. By the way, their descendants live in the East of Ukraine at present. In the past this territory was a part of the Russian Empire (before the USSR). That's why I wasn't surprised when residents of Eastern Ukraine did not support the «European choice» of the new Ukrainian Government. Yesterday the Government decided to name one of the streets the capital of Ukraine in the name of the Ukrainian officer who served in the Nazi army. Unlikely CNN reported about this.

Here is a video with a beautiful song.
