The leader of the ‘Donbas self-defence’ force is Igor ‘Strelkov.’ His 
real surname is Girkin. He was born in 1970, and comes from Moscow. An 
avid reconstructor of historical events, he loves to dress up in the 
uniforms of the White armies who fought in the South, and to reenact the 
campaigns of the Volunteer Army of South Russia from the period 
1918-1920. He took part in reenactments of the ‘War of 1916’ in 2009 and 
the ‘Civil War’ in 2010. He has also participated in reenactments of 
Russia’s imperial wars.
