I don't think they would call themselves cossack. I seem to remember Jan mentioning that they split off from russia at one point. --Marc Pasquin 18:14, 28 January 2006 (PST)

If it is so, then mayb eit should be changed. Could Jan comment more on this? Abdul-aziz 16:41, 14 February 2006 (PST)

I don't have a problem with the name "Cossack". There are all kinds of Cossacks, some of them in Russia, others in Ukraine. Indeed, the Don Cossacks did split off from Russia, establishing the Don Republic, and the Ukrainian Cossacks are in Ukraine. But there are several other concentrations as well in Russia proper, for example in Qazaqstan IIRC. Besides, the people of the "Cossack Force" are obviously no réal cossacks, but merely (ab?)using the name because it's a nationalist icon. I can imagine that the réal Cossacks are far from satisfied with the actions of the CF! —IJzeren Jan Uszkiełtu? 02:03, 17 February 2006 (PST)

problem solved then. --Marc Pasquin 07:20, 17 February 2006 (PST)

The Cossaks were (originally) the Kazakhs, although later it simply meant a part of the army. --Sikulu 03:35, 17 February 2006 (PST)
