- Rider(s):Suvorov, Alexander
(1881-1925) resisted tsarist rule, leading two Moldovan rebellions in 1905 and 1915. During the last part of World War I, Kotovsky was sent to the Romanian front. In 1918, he sided with the Communists in Tiraspol, taking command of a revolutionary battalion and helping the Bolsheviks gain control of Ukraine. He took an active part in the foundation of the Moldavian Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic.
Suvorov is highly esteemed among Swiss people as he saved their country from the invasion of Napoleon. His troops took Saint Gothhard pass and the famous Devil’s Bridge, guarded by the French troops. The Swiss campaign was Suvorov’s last glorious campaign. He died soon after that in 1800.
