To make long story shorter, we can see a perfect grunt, ready to carry out any criminal order for money and promotion in the framework of the actual state regime.

However, this is not all about Diakonov. He has given a number of interesting inteviews, revealing of what is going on inside the Novorossia gangs.

See his interview to the «Cossackhood of Moscow» web-site (http://казачествомосквы.рф) It turns out that Diakonov and his people caused the mess in Saraevo in 2014. The Russian authorities clearly might have prepared provocations in this country prior to the general elections.

From the Crimea to Pushkin square in Moscow

A distinctive mark of «the Cossack regiment of the Crimea chief Baklanov» – a black chevron with a skull in the middle.

The movement’s Vkontakte web page states that the organization was formed on February 14, 2014. In March, before the Crimea referendum the chief Nikolai Diakonov was rallying with the new members of the organization.

«The cossacks move to carry out combat missions in Sevastopol and in the Crimea – to keep public order, to protect civilians and  polling stations”, – says the local TV channel.

After «the Crimea spring» Diakonov’s cossacks moved to Donbass to continue the warfare and later the cossack regiment returned to Moscow from the East Ukraine.

The «Donbass voluntary union» representatives (Diakonov is a member of the organization’s board) informed the Russian BBC service that after the events on the Pushkin square he «asked not to give out his phone number». However they have confirmed that Diakonov is currently in Moscow.

Diakonov took personal part in coordination of storm-troops’ and firebrands’ attack on people who gathered at Pushkin square on May 5, 2018.

From the middle of the video, shot during the event, we can see some storm troopers capture a protestion person and fall back. Then Diakonov ask the civil activists “not to provoke” so that his words could be shot by a camera.

Diakonov and his people participate in provocations agains civilians on May the 5th.
