Cossack protecting peasants and modern Ukraine

with a sabre.

this little fantasy video is like a short romp through Ukrainian history with a lot of symbols and artefacts generously thrown in for a good measure.


the instrument the boy is playing is called bandura. it is a versatile instrument fit both for folk and classical music — or pop, if you are into that kind of thing.

the video was shot in the Kyiv skansen Pyrohovo.

what the braid on the oligarch means — sorry, have no idea.

also, note that the lyrics are in Russian and kinda rap, and the chorus is in Ukrainian and sung by a literal chorus.


still, I liked the swordplay most.
