Kodak

 

a fortress in the Ukraine, on the right bank of the Dnieper at the Kodak rapids (the present-day village of Starye Kaidaki, near Dnepropetrovsk). The Polish government built Kodak in 1635 in order to strengthen its hold over the Ukrainian territory along the Dnieper and to consolidate its military and economic control over the operations of the Zaporozh’e Cossacks. In 1635 the Zaporozn’e Cossacks headed by I. M. Sulima took the fortress by storm and destroyed it. Kodak was rebuilt by the Polish feudal lords in 1639. In the fall of 1648, Colonel M. Nesterenko’s cossack detachment, which had been sent by Bogdan Khmel’nitskii, seized Kodak, which then became a cos-sack base. Kodak was among the fortresses pulled down in 1711 in fulfillment of the terms of the Peace of Prut between Turkey and Russia.
