Coin The Battle of Khotyn 5 UAH, market price 21.05.2022
This coin is dedicated to an important event in European history in the first half of the 17th century, which effectively decided the fate of Christian civilization – the 400th anniversary of the Battle of Khotyn, during which the Zaporozhian-Polish-Lithuanian army stopped the Ottoman army on the Moldovan border. In September 1621, the army of Sultan Osman II, many thousands strong, gathered on the battlefield against a much smaller force. The Ottomans attacked the Cossack positions seventeen times, and the positions of the Polish-Lithuanian forces about ten times. The role of the Zaporozhian army, led by the brilliant politician and commander Petro Konashevych-Sahaidachnyi, who employed night-fighting tactics on the enemy, was particularly significant. Due to huge losses (the army of Ottoman II lost about 40,000 soldiers), the Ottoman Empire was forced to abandon plans to conquer Europe and instead sign the Khotyn Peace Treaty.
