  Kuban Cossacks - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Kuban Cossacks (Russian: Кубанские кaзаки, Kubanskiye Kаzaki) were cossacks that were settled in the region around the Kuban River to protect the southern borders of the Russian Empire.

After the war the Cossacks were once again removed from the military, but not before they proudly marched on the Red Square in the famous victory parade of 1945 (only the Kuban Cossacks were allowed to march, being the largest group).
