In the seventeenth - eighteenth centuries Ukraine was called the country of the Cossacks in Europe, and the Ukrainians - the Cossack nation. All segments of its population were imbued with the Cossack spirit. Catherine II's destruction of the Cossacks, which was the basis of the Ukrainian people, had terrible consequences for them, which we have not yet been able to understand and realize. The article is devoted to the analysis of the ideas of the era of the Ukrainian Cossacks (XV - XVIII centuries), which are still successfully used by scientists and practitioners in the specialty 19.00.09 – «Psychology of activity in special conditions».

Among the main Cossack  strateghemes that have not been lost during the centuries, the authors of the scientific publication highlight and discuss: military tricks on the battlefield and in combat areas; features of the formation of public opinion about the justice of the atamans and the discipline of the Zaporozhian army; propaganda of human attitude to prisoners of war and explanation of the conditions of transition to the ranks of the Zaporozhian army; use of psychological techniques in international contacts; moral and psychological factors for assessing the combat effectiveness of enemy troops; organization of intelligence and counterintelligence, ability to collect and analyze information, disseminate misinformation; system of Cossack physical education, physical and psychophysical training of Cossacks, etc.

 The authors hope that the data presented in the article will be useful to scientists and practical psychologists in the security and defense sector of Ukraine and, especially, during the Great Patriotic War of the Ukrainian people against Russian aggression.
