For the third year in a row on October 14, we celebrate the Day of the Defender of Ukraine, honoring famous warriors who desperately defy the borders of our state. This tradition is rather young, but it has a much deeper background and a long history. And we decided to make a small excursion into the mysterious past of the Ukrainian military affair until this holiday.
On October 14, the whole Christian world celebrates POKROVY – a day of gratitude to the Blessed Virgin Mary, who, according to legend, took over the conquerors of Constantinople and saved them from hostile invasions in the distant Xth century.
Together with the Day of Protection, the Day of Ukrainian is celebrated Cossacks Such an interesting coincidence, in fact, is no accident at all. The fact is that from ancient times the Mother of God is the protector of the Cossacks and all Ukrainian armed formations – because they, as well as the Mother of God, under our PAKROV, kept our peace and tranquility. It was on the Victory Day in Sich that the Great Council was taking place, or, as it was called, the Cossack Council, which chose the Hetman and determined how the Cossacks lived further.
In Ukraine, everyone knows the history of the Cossacks – these powerful glorious warriors. They are depicted in money, postage stamps, appear as characters of films, scientific books, and works of art. Even the anthem of our state did not go without mentioning the famous Cossack family. Cossack in the representation of an ordinary Ukrainian is a brave and respected warrior, a defender of the Fatherland, a defender of the faith, customs and dignity. The Cossacks were proud of their homeland, neighbors were counting and cooperating with the Cossacks, and the Cossacks were not afraid of their enemies jokingly. There were many legends among the enemy about the Cossacks and their extraordinary power.
But were there really only legends? …
Among the Zaporozhian Cossacks, there was a mysterious, legendary phenomenon – a characteristic. Characters were soldiers who possessed supernatural abilities, were strong sorcerers, able to stop the bleeding, catch bullets bare hands, walk in the fire, spend hours under water, see the future, manage the weather and cause terrible horror among the enemies.
It is worth mentioning that Ivan Sirk, whose name was signed by the famous letter to Turkish ruler Muhammad IV, who even after his death helped his brothers in the battles against Osman and the Tatars.
Of the characters, there are many recorded references to eyewitnesses – who met with them in battle, he remained forever impressed with the power and supernatural abilities of the Cossack army.
Characteristics masterfully owned the Kozatsky Spas (the rules of mastering the art of the Cossack battle and the way of life of the Cossacks), and especially its most powerful component – psycho-energy techniques. With his help, they were able to bring to the enemy the so-called “gloom” (in the type of hypnosis). There have been cases when, after experiencing a Cossack darkness, a hostile army could either kill its soldiers, or pass by the Cossack group without noticing it, or stop in front of a natural obstacle (river or mountain), which was not really there.
Characters in the Zaporozhian Sich also served as spiritual mentors and healers, who were engaged in the treatment of wounded Cossacks, engaged in their psychological and physical training.
According to legend, Character Cossacks were cooked from childhood, and the moles were already known to us for this. They chose the most potential boys and worked on developing their supernatural abilities by transferring their knowledge and skills, including: treating herbs, owning martial arts, and using natural forces for the benefit of their people and the earth.
It is no coincidence that the ability to find vitality in nature, the use of its resources as a source of energy, health and longevity was valued almost the most in the Molfar tradition – in the art that even from the ancient magi carried through the generations of moles.
In place of the Cossacks came soldiers of our time – the Armed Forces of Ukraine. And it is not surprising that today’s heroes have been resolved exactly on this day.
Remembering glorious ancestors and devoted warriors, we are pleased to congratulate you on an important state holiday – the Day of the Ukrainian Cossacks and the Day of the Defender of Ukraine!
May you and your families always feel safe under the protection and protection of our soldiers, and our low bow to our advocates – the former, the present and the future!
