Case Cossack artillery

Nicholas Zharkikh

Question of the Cossack artillery is a bit on the side of our main themes. We need only determine whether the artillery was ever stayed in Terekhtemyriv. Therefore chronicle of cossack artillery we make simplistic – not after the original sources, but after Hrushevsky, specifically highlighting place names.

From the chronicle we can draw the following conclusions:

1. Cossack artillery quartered in different places near Dnepr – Kyiv, Korsun, Kaniv, Chygyryn – and in Zaporizhia.

2. In their petitions to the Polish and Russian governments Cossacks asked to determine where should be placed artillery, but they did not made any proposals on this place.

3. Ordination in 1638 was predicted staying artillery in Terekhtemyriv, but this has been turned impossible and artillery left in Korsun.

4. There are no evidence staying artillery in Terekhtemyriv.
