Odessa Ukraine
Odessa was not until a couple of centuries more than a formidable natural fortress that allowed the Turks to reject until four times the assault of the fearful Cossacks sent by Catherine the Great . The fate was that after years of unsuccessful sieges, it was a Spaniard, Jose de Ribas, who managed to finally take that Ottoman bastion at the head of the Russian imperial troops. The ear of Barcelona had arrived in St. Petersburg ten years ago, with only 22, to join the Imperial Navy in search of glory and adventure. At that time he achieved the rank of general and the tsarine entrusted the command of his troops in one of the most difficult missions of the time: take the fortress of Jadzibei, hitherto unassailable.
