1) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decossackization 2) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Repatriation_of_Cossacks_after_World_War_II Now Cossack 'men' beat young girls with horse whips and some nationalists cheer that.

As long as some retard waves a plastic Russian Flag, the Putin retarded masses will salute it and follow it. That is not Nationalism. That is the antithesis of everything that Nationalism and Nationalists stand for.
