    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We visited Holy Assumption Cathedral where all the famous and brave Cossacks were baptized.
    It is a Russian Don Cossacks' cathedral indeed.
    The erection of Holy Assumption Cathedral was requested by the Cossacks and approved by the Czar Nickolas I on November 24, 1852.
    I was told the cathedral altar had been commissioned in Italy and its side wings were made in St.Petersburg.
    Also, I was shown the place at the column opposite the altar where the banner of Gundorovka Regiment was fixed. The old banner clutches are still there.

    Cross of Gundorovka, Cossacks Museum

    by hunterV Updated Oct 26, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I heard about this cross and saw it in the folk lore museum in the town of Donetsk.
    The inscription reads, Gundorovka Cossack Regiment
    and there is the date: 1920 when the Cossacks Army began its counterattack in the fierce battles with the Red Army to liberate the Cossack lands that had been plundered and devastated by the Bolsheviks at the end of 1919.
