Borodavka (Nerodych), Yatsko

Borodavka (Nerodych), Yatsko, ? – 1621. Hetman of the Zaporozhian Cossacks, elected in late 1619 by the unregistered Cossacks. When war began with Turkey in 1620, Borodavka made a temporary truce with Petro Konashevych-Sahaidachny and the leaders of the registered Cossacks. At a general council in June 1621 the registered and unregistered Cossacks entrusted Borodavka with the command of a Cossack army of 40,000 men. Blamed for a defeat in Moldavia, Borodavka was deposed and beheaded at Khotyn in 1621. Sahaidachny was chosen as the new hetman.
