Imperiia: a spatial history of the Russian Empire


There were 59 orchards and 72 vineyards at Kozy, previously owned by Greeks and Tatars.

According to Vladimir Bronevskii, Kozy had been emptied by emigration. A few Tatars remained and a few Mariupol Greeks had returned. “The Greek church," he wrote (page 126),

standing in between two mosques (the best example of religious tolerance in Russia), the ruins of an ancient Goth khram, the cracked walls of the remaining homes, vacant plots of land, broken pieces of marble which once decorated the fallen buildings, give the village a sepulchral aspect: one might think that it was not long ago seized and destroyed by enemies.
