Battle of Balaclava
Regarding the Battle of Balaclava, which took place on October 25, 1854 during the Crimean War, the Russian Ministry of Defense said in the statement: “But the thing that entered the history of the Battle of Balaclava much more brilliantly was the legendary destruction on the same day of an entire English aristocratic general of light cavalry under the command of Lord Lord A cardigan at the hands of Russian artillery and in just 20 minutes.”
The ministry indicated that this “precisely the exploit of the English” during the Crimean War “influenced all the languages of the world and military textbooks with the concept of war fuel”, in response to the British Defense Minister’s reminder of the defeat of the Russians against the Russian army in the nineteenth century.
British Defense Warning

We can always repeat that.” .

According to Wallace, the Scottish Guards regiment “defeated Tsar Nicholas I in 1853 in Crimea and could always do so again”.
