Elected Cossacks (Ukrainian language: Виборні козаки ) were cossacks who were economically independent from various institutions and participated in military services using their own weapons. Following the reforms of the Russian government in 1734, cossacks were divided into two groups: Elected Cossacks and Cossack Helpers.
