Ukrainian Kozaks Rap Against Sultan Putin’s Invasion

In 1676, the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire, Mehmed IV, sent a haughty ultimatum to the Ukrainian Kozaks, commanding them to submit.

“This is a story of those who died for freedom and for their own country. It is still unknown how many people there are in the Heaven’s Hundred… It is not only those who were killed in the center of the Ukraine’s capital at the end of February. It’s also all those who protested against the regime in different parts of the country, and then went missing or had been murdered since the Euromaidan’s beginning,” is said in the description to the film.

EuromaidanPR invites all those that want to contribute to translating Babylon 13’s films to do so by translating, editing, and assembling subtitles. Please sign up by sending us a message in FB.
