Who, according to a probable legend, sent a letter to the Ottoman Sultan with the words "kiss our a**e"?

Mongols
Cossacks
Habsburgs
Greeks
Cossacks were deeply Orthodox and formed highly demo­crat­ic mil­i­taris­tic com­mu­ni­ties. In 1676, they recevied a letter from Mehmed IV, who demanded that they submit to Turkish rule. The letter was full of sultan's titles, which the Cossacks parodied in their reply, calling the sultan "Baby­lo­ni­an scul­lion, Mace­do­nian wheel­wright, brewer of Jerusalem, goat-f****r of Alexan­dri­a, swine­herd of Greater and Lesser Egypt, pig of Armenia, Podolian thief, catamite of Tartary, hangman of Kamyanet­s, and fool of all the world and un­der­world".
