LOMZA, Poland, September 1 (Itar-Tass) — The Moscow-Paris Cossack cavalry march devoted to the 200th anniversary of the 1812 Patriotic War reached the Polish town of Lomza on Saturday evening, having covered 62 kilometers of the route.
On Sunday, they will move towards the Polish capital of Warsaw.
The 65-year-old Cossack captain Georgy Kovalenko is the oldest participant in the march. He believes that people should live in peace, joy and happiness.
“War is very bad. Life is given to people to live rather than die. The main message behind our march is to show to people that it’s necessary to life in peace. That’s why we lay wreaths both to the graves of our heroes and to the graves of our former enemies,” Kovalenko emphasized. He himself is a hereditary Cossack. His grandfather was a colonel in the tsarist army. He served in the Caucasus in places like Khasavyurt, Kizlyar and Vladikavkaz. He died during Stalin’s purges.
Kovalenko has been working with horses since the age of 19.
This is Kovalenko’s second foreign trip. The first was to Bulgaria a long time ago. Naturally, the tour of European countries leaves lots of impressions.
“I like the order here and the people whom we met on our way. I look around and see that the people here are simple and hard-working. They don’t live in idleness. They work and achieve excellent results with their work,” Kovalenko said in conclusion.
