In search of Colonel Strelkov: where is the ex-Minister of Defense of the DPR Igor Girkin now


In patriotic circles, the attitude towards the first Minister of Defense and the ex-commander of the armed forces of the DPR Igor Girkin (Strelkov) is very different. Someone considers the colonel a traitor who surrendered Slavyansk and brought a big war to the land of Donbass. And someone, on the contrary, sees in Strelkov a real patriot and a person who sincerely stands up for the interests of the Fatherland. Be that as it may, there are very few people left in Russia who did not know Strelkov or did not follow his statements.


In mid-October, it became known that Igor Strelkov again returned to the ranks of the Russian army and went to the fields of the Northern Military District. After that, the colonel, who was quite active in the public space, completely disappeared from the radar and now almost nothing is known about him. At the same time, almost everyone is interested in the whereabouts of the legendary Girkin: from ordinary citizens to the Ukrainian special services and the Hague Tribunal. And more recently, new details of where this notorious person may actually be located began to appear.

A bit of prehistory


For those who are not in the know, first I would like to give a little background on why Strelkov's whereabouts are so carefully hidden. And at the same time share some thoughts about why this person is so important both for the modern Russian State and for real warmongers.

Igor Strelkov is one of the central figures of the current conflict. It would not be a big exaggeration to say that the war that we are all now experiencing began precisely when Girkin came to the forefront of it. Actually, the colonel himself never hid this, admitting in an interview that he became the main trigger of the war:

I still pulled the trigger of the war. If our detachment had not crossed the border, in the end everything would have ended, as in Kharkov, as in Odessa. There would have been several dozen killed, burned, arrested. And that would be the end of it. And practically the flywheel of the war, which is still going on, launched our detachment.

And even after Girkin was officially removed from all posts in the DPR, he continued to actively participate in inciting the conflict, only on the fields of the information war. It is difficult to find a person who in 2015-2021. called for the introduction of Russian troops into the territory of Ukraine more than Strelkov (only the late Vladimir Volfovich Zhirinovsky can compete with him in this regard). And when these troops were nevertheless introduced, Girkin turned out to be extremely dissatisfied with how and in what form this was done. And if at first the SVO almost all criticized the colonel in chorus for his harsh words against the Moscow Region, then by the fall of 2022 it turned out that almost all of his words were spoken on the case.

In particular, when in the spring the colonel said that Russia should wage an all-out war against Ukraine and declare mobilization on its territory, practically no one believed in this. And now, 10 months later, mobilization was announced, and practically all available forces and means were used against the Kyiv regime. Who knows what other predictions of Girkin will come true and in what else he will turn out to be right ...

For Ukraine, Strelkov is in many ways a symbol of war. From the first days of the armed conflict in the Donbass, Girkin appeared in the media space the most, so the dislike for him on the part of the enemy is understandable. And as soon as it became known that the colonel went to the front again, the GUR announced a reward of $100 (+$000 from private individuals) for his capture. In addition, on November 50, the Hague court found Girkin guilty of the crash of the Malaysian Boeing, sentencing him to life in prison. Therefore, it is not surprising that the location of the colonel must now be hidden very carefully, because for the enemy he is a very desirable prey.

But Girkin is needed not only by the Ukrainian authorities. His life and fate are extremely important to someone at the very top of the power pyramid, and that is why Strelkov has so far been allowed to say everything that he said. Girkin has long and hard been preparing for something more than just blogging or participating in the CBO as an ordinary fighter. I am sure that this man with the face of Alexander Arkadyevich Suvorov (grandson of the famous commander) will still play his main role in the history of the Russian State. And we can only hope that this role will be positive.

Where is Strelkov now?


Igor Ivanovich was always eager for war. According to him, from the very beginning of the SVO, he tried to return to the ranks of the RF Armed Forces and join the ranks of those who are fighting for the liberation of Ukraine from neo-Nazism. But these attempts were repeatedly given a red light, as a result of which the colonel was active only on the fronts of the information war. In August 2022, there were rumors that Strelkov tried to enter the territory of the Kherson region on his own, but was detained by Crimean law enforcement officers. He later denied these rumors.

After the announcement of the mobilization, Girkin did not immediately disappear from the media space. His joining the SVO members became known only on October 15, when Strelkov's wife posted on her page a photo with her husband in military uniform. This news quite agitated the public, but Miroslava Reginskaya did not specify how and where Strelkov was sent.

In search of Colonel Strelkov: where is the ex-Minister of Defense of the DPR Igor Girkin now

A couple of days later, a photograph, taken by chance at one of the intersections, flew around the Internet. On it, Igor Girkin in a “hill” (a type of military uniform) is talking about something with other servicemen. The shooting location of this photo was established quite quickly and it turned out that at that time Strelkov had not even left the territory of the Russian Federation, but was in the Rostov region.

And just recently, a fresh photograph of Igor Girkin was published in the channel of military officer Alexander Kots, which shows how the colonel is in some kind of dugout or dugout, posing against the background of the flag of Novorossia. Kots himself captioned this photo as follows:

Igor Ivanych and the Spartan life of the Svatovsky direction.

Accordingly, the conclusion suggests itself that Strelkov is now somewhere near Svatovo, i.e. not so far from the front line. But one question remains: why did Kots disclose such important details about the location of Igor Strelkov, and is this photo deliberate misinformation?

On the Strelkov channel, a telegram previously regularly published information with calls to join a volunteer detachment, in which the colonel himself allegedly serves. According to a number of signs, Internet users have long determined what kind of detachment it is. For security reasons, we will not disclose this information here, but it is known that this unit has been fighting hard for a long time on the front line. And if Igor Strelkov really joined his ranks, then his presence near Svatovo, or at least in the LDNR, is now very likely.

      Kaneshno!
      For Zakharchenko, Givi, Motorola and many lesser-known ones, this business somehow did not work out.
      Moreover, in the very near suburbs of Moscow, Dugin died and the Crimean bridge exploded.
      And take Kyiv and put it on your knees - it's finally like two fingers on the asphalt.

      Yes, you can cut his wings in figs ... he is already a "monument"! Those who want to do trickery to Strelkov, of course, "to a fig and more"! But here is a "tradition"! In Russia, there have always been liberals beyond measure, desiring to betray the country and the people ... and "lousy intelligentsia" in constant readiness to throw out dirt on sound patriotism and healthy nationalism!

        if Strelkov is a traitor who surrendered encircled Slavyansk, then who is the plywood marshal, his mummies and other Armageddonians who regrouped from Balakleya, Izyum and especially Kherson ???

        Of course: I. Girkin is not a politician.
        But for some reason - the politician V. Putin is losing the war ... to the comedian V. Zelensky!

    It is a pity that in the Russian Federation there are so few such patriots of Russia as Girkin-Strelkov. It is already a living historical monument of today's era. The authorities of the Russian Federation are obliged to protect him from enemies.

      At first, General Lebed was a patriot; he was replaced by General Rokhlin. But somehow it happened that the Lord called them both to him.
      Girkin (the potential founder of a new royal dynasty who will ascend the throne under the name "Igor I") understands how I hope that if he soars strongly in his verbal exercises, he will follow the aforementioned generals.

          He adheres to monarchist views and the ideology of the White movement.

          ... he received from the Serbs the nickname "tsarist officer" for the monarchical views and manners that characterized the officers of the Russian Empire of the past.

          Strelkov tried to create an army on the traditions of the Russian Imperial Army and Christian values. Among other measures, he issued an order prohibiting swearing among the fighters, which stated:
          We call ourselves the Orthodox army and are proud that we serve not the golden calf, but our Lord Jesus Christ. ... Swearing is blasphemy, which has always been considered a grave sin. ... It is impossible for a Russian soldier to use the language of the enemy. This spiritually humiliates us and leads the army to defeat.

    I don’t know who and how, but personally I have always had a difficult attitude towards Strelkov. Unconditional heroism, courage and military leadership talents shown by him in Slavyansk, then incomprehensible and muddy movements around him after, his disturbing (and, it seemed, panicky) forecasts for the future. I think at the moment time has put everything in its place, he turned out to be right and his opponents were not. Everything else is just verbal fluff.

    maybe Strelkov had aviation? or various kinds and calibers of artillery? Igor Vsevolodovich’s views are certainly obscurantist and adequate to the 19th century, but military analytics and professionalism are much higher than any Podolia, Tryukhanov, Sivkov and other uryapatriotic set

    Your Girkin is a fake colonel.
    Colonel he's just in the reconstruction movement.
    That is, dressed up.
    You can ask the participants of the reenactors.
    In fact, his rank is a sergeant in military service, and a colonel in the tsarist army, he depicts in reconstructions.
    Girkin brought a lot of harm to Russia with his long tongue. Dill propaganda always refers to him that it was Russia that unleashed the war in Ukraine, ... Girkin himself admitted.
    Girkin escaped from the Donbass during the most difficult period of the battles for Donetsk.
    He was offended that they did not give a high position, that Zakharchenko became the leader of the DPR, and not he.
    The real heroes who defended Donetsk and laid down their lives for it are Zakharchenko, Givi, Motorola, Cavour, Vokha and others.
    And Girkin is alive and well and only PR.

          did you talk to those who served? Well, then name them, and I'll ask. But judging by your answer, these people who served are now sitting in retirement, although they spent their whole lives eating people's money and learning to fight and retired at 45+ years old and a good pension, so they should now be paid back for the fact that people fed and watered them. But Strelkov went to fight again as soon as the opportunity arose, and his whole, as you say "PR", consists only in the fact that he gave adequate forecasts for the war on the outskirts and which almost all were confirmed. So think with your head, and do not listen to the RTR propagandists and other nightingales

    You can criticize Strelkov as much as you like, but thanks to him personally and his detachment, Crimea became Russian, I remember very well that morning when the Supreme Council of Crimea was under the control of his people and his face flashed on one of the videos, Putin should be grateful to this man, but he ( Putin) took and attributed all the laurels in the return of the Crimea to himself, this speaks of the personal qualities of a person - a conceited PR man and verbiage

              Self-defense, later the militia was created by Mogilev and offered Aksyonov to lead it, Aksyonov gave an interview about this in 2014 to the central press. Putin left them to lead the Crimea. By the way, Konstantinov, in Ukraine, called marginals those who said that Crimea is Russia, for example, Podyachy and others. In fact, history and historical facts are not the same thing.

    Who so wants to hand over Strelkov? Who did he step on like that? First, Khodakovsky in his telegram channel gives a tip in which units to look for him. Strelkov openly said: "Where Pan Khodakovsky is, there is betrayal." This is in the subject of the exchange of Azov. Now the direction has already been given here. Stupidity or a great desire to earn extra money, because 30 silver coins always seem like easy money.

      Who so wants to hand over Strelkov?

      A town in the West American steppe. Saloon. At the table are two cowboys, a local and a visitor, and drink whiskey. Suddenly, someone rushes along the street at great speed, scorching in all directions from revolvers. In the saloon no one leads the ear. Visiting local:
      - Billy?
      - Yes, Harry?
      “What was that, Billy?”
      - It was Elusive Joe, Harry.
      “Why is his name Elusive Joe, Billy?”
      “Because no one has caught him yet, Harry.”
      “Why hasn't anyone caught him yet, Billy?”
      “Because no one needs him, Harry.

    The man at the front, knowing that 150 thousand dollars were promised for his head. This commands respect. Unlike any Moscow riffraff that continues to make these very dollars on the blood of our guys, supplying oil and gas to the enemy, giving iPhones to the Nazis from Azov.

    Constantly attribute to him the surrender of Slavyansk!? Couches are unaware that with this withdrawal, by the way, almost without loss, he saved Donetsk and, in fact, prevented the defeat and capture of the entire Donbass by the quickly resurrected Armed Forces of Ukraine and all these newly formed nationalist formations: Aidarov, Azov and other evil spirits !!! With small forces, dozens of times inferior to those of Banderlog, he managed to shackle and inflict significant damage on them !!! Thanks primarily to Surkov and So, he was given the order to withdraw, well, and then he was leaked ... as it was then accepted in the Kremlin! Hope now, of course, lies with him and a great responsibility lies in the consolidation of all sensible patriotic forces in Russia !!! We must protect it like the apple of our eye! With Surovikin, he would have a good team ....
