Kuzma Bublyk (1901-1925) - Red cossack, 1924

The Red Cossacks (Ukrainian: Червоне козацтво, Russian: Червонное казачество) was military formation created on 27 December 1917 by the government of the newly born Ukrainian People's Republic of Soviets. The formation was an opposing force to the volunteer militia formations of the "Free Cossacks" that appeared earlier in Ukraine in 1917 as part of a nationalist movement. The first regiment of the Red Cossacks was created in Kharkov under the command of Vitaly Primakov.
