Russian Army Dance

This is a Cossack war dance performed by the Soviet Army in 1981. A little background on the Cossacks: they were a group of people who live near the Black Sea. They were renowned for their big red beards, style of dress, and their military prowess on horses. In fact they were so good that they were used by the Soviet government and the czars before that as shock troops and secret police.
