From 1659 to the time of his death, Sirko was 12 times elected by the ataman. In the fight against the Turks, Tatars and Poles, I.D. Sirko conducted more than 50 fights and won victories in all. In 1676 Sirko signed a letter from the Cossacks to the Turkish sultan Mehmet IV – this legendary moment is reflected by Ilya Repin on his canvases. The grave is constantly under the vigilant supervision of the peasants, but still the remains of the ataman were subjected to several reburials until they were transferred to the burial mound of Bab-Grave in 1967. This monument is a national property and is protected by the state.
