All Nikolaev officials ignored Day of the Ukrainian Cossacks. Probably, it is almost only holiday which is absolutely not popular at fashionable дядь from offices. Petrovsky on October 14 I came to park that the mayor, the governor, or at least their deputies, but there were no officials even from "cultural" or "sports" managements.
Probably, taken place recently under the auspices of Party of Regions and others the meeting in support of Russian so brainwashed representatives of local authorities that they don't try to show at all respect for the Ukrainian culture and the nation.
But from their absence the holiday lost nothing - without officials with their tiresome the necessary speeches it was much more interesting to nobody. Especially as children in shape arranged the real show. After hand-to-hand fight, performance with the weapon about a bayonet - knifes, the Cossack fights on sabers and other martial arts 11 graders from Ochakovo too showed to that learned. And school students of 6 - 8 classes sang the Cossack songs.
