The Cossacks actively cooperate with the Tiraspol Suvorov Military School, the Republican Cadet Corps, and the Makarenko School, said Igor Nebeygolova. Cooperation has been established with the Pridnestrovian State University and the Military Institute of the PMR Ministry of Defense.

The President touched upon some aspects of the history of the Cossacks, including its tragic pages. He mentioned the inclusion of the Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Cossack Repression to the calendar of memorial dates, recalling what caused the Cossack genocide. According to Vadim Krasnoselsky, the Cossacks were seen as a threat, since they were highly organized, capable and ready to defend the Fatherland and the Orthodox faith.
