Boris Kustodiev. Stepan Razin. 1918

Stepan Razin

Boris Kustodiev



Stepan Razin is one of the colourful rogues of Russian history. He and and his merry crew of Cossack cut-throats are the Russian equivalent of the jolly buccaneers of the Spanish Main. By the way, Stepan Razin’s a Russian figure, and if you hear Galician Uniate claims that he was “Ukrainian“, that’s ridiculous. I can’t understand why those people steal from our history. Oh, well… consider the source.
