Legends of the Odessa Estuary: “Ant Etkenmen”


The fourth episode of the “Legends of the Odessa Estuary” project. The events take place in the first half of the 18th century with the Cossack Hetman Pylyp Orlyk.


“Legends of the Odessa Estuary” is a new cycle of fairy-tale animated stories that take place against the background of real historical events in the vicinity of Hadzhibey-Odessa over the past 700 years.

The fourth episode will tell the audience about the Cossack Hetman Pylyp Orlyk and how he concluded the first Ukrainian constitution. Then the Ukrainian Cossacks and Chumaks settled on the lands of modern Odessa and Nikolayev regions and lived a peaceful life near the villages of the Crimean and Nogai Tatars. Against the background of these events, a romantic love story of a Ukrainian nobleman and a Crimean Tatar unfolds.
