I would like to thank the Ukrainian Free Kozaks of Australia for inviting me to take part today in the Blessing of their Kish Flags and the commemoration of the Blessed Sviato Pokrova (Agia Skepi- The Theotokos-Protection). I was honoured to receive the 100 year of Kozaks anniversary commemoration pin but more so the prestigious Ukrainian Kozak Medalion of the Theotokos Sviato Pokrova! Honoured to be a 'adopted' Kozak and officially it's Orthodox Chaplain! Glory to God! Slava Ukraina! Slava to the Kozaks!
