It is not clear when new Slavic people apart from Brodnici and Berladniki started settling in the lower reaches of major rivers such as the Don and the Dnieper after the demise of the Khazar state. It is unlikely it could have happened before the 13th century, when the Mongols broke the power of the Cumans , who had assimilated the previous population on that territory. It is known that new settlers inherited a lifestyle that persisted there long before, such as those of the Turkic Cumans and the Circassian Kassaks.
Early “Proto-Cossack” groups are generally reported to have come into existence within the present-day Ukraine in the mid th century as the influence of Cumans grew weaker, though some have ascribed their origins to as early as the tenth century. In some Slavic people living in the area between the Dniester and the Volga were mentioned in Ruthenian chronicles. Historical records of the Cossacks before the 16th century are scant, as is the history of the Ukrainian lands in that period for various reasons.
As early as the 15th century a few individuals ventured into the proverbial “Wild Fields”, the southern frontier regions of Ukraine separating Poland-Lithuania from the Crimean Khanate, which was a naturally rich and fertile region teeming with cattle, wild animals and fish. These ventures went on short-term expeditions to acquire the region’s natural wealth and this mode of existing—farming, hunting, then returning home in the winter or perhaps remaining permanently—came to be known as the Cossack way of life.
In the 15th century Cossack society was described as a loose federation of independent communities, often forming local armies, entirely independent from the neighboring states of, for example, Poland, the Grand Duchy of Moscow or the Khanate of Crimea. There, Cossacks may have served as self-defense formations, organized to defend against raids conducted by neighbors. The Cossacks of Zaporizhia , centered on the lower bends of Dnieper, inside the territory of modern Ukraine, with the fortified capital of Zaporozhian Sich.

In talking to them, I learned that a majority of the guys using the sites are in their late 30s, have a few kids, and are looking for a wife to settle down with. Overall, my experiences with the sites were varied, with one emerging as a clear winner. Since I find the notion of paying for online dates a little too similar to paying for sex, I gave up on the site. After a week on this site with seemingly no coherent mail, I quit it too.

Two-finger salute in Poland[ edit ] A two-fingers salute. The Polish two-finger salute is only used while wearing a headdress with the emblem of the Polish eagle such as military hat rogatywka or without this emblem such as Boonie hat or helmet. The salute is performed with the middle and index fingers extended and touching each other, while the ring and little fingers are bent and touched by the thumb.

Another legend attributes the salute to the remembrance of Battle of Olszynka Grochowska in , when a soldier who lost in the battle all his fingers but the middle and index ones, saluted his superior with the wounded hand, and died after it.

Posted on January 20, by J. Updated Perhaps the most commonly asked question I receive on Twitter is which veterans organizations people should donate to. There are billions of dollars donated every year in the name of helping veterans. But which ones are the best? Which ones are trustworthy? Are people really to believe those flashy, expensive commercials during the nightly news? As a wounded warrior, I have experience with many of these organizations and can help wade through the decision making process.
As I travel the country interviewing military personnel for various stories, I always make it a point to ask which organizations helped them. By using that information, and my own personal experience, in addition to the publically available charity rating statistics, I composed the following list of organizations.
While this list is by no means all-encompassing there are hundreds of organizations , it will serve as a short safe list. A word of warning though.
