An international knights tournament took place July 7-9 at Mamayeva Sloboda, an outdoor museum.

It marked the third time when cavaliers from Ukraine and other countries met to display skills in fancy riding and staged battles for the symbolic trophy called Saber of Cossack Mamay. A Ukrainian Cossack unit led by otaman (chieftain) Oleh Yurchyshyn achieved the triumph once again.
