On the cooperation of Ataman of the Don Troops Pyotr Krasnov with the Nazis

In May 1918, the creation of an independent state of the All-Great Don Army was proclaimed, headed by Ataman Pyotr Krasnov. In the newly created “Cossack democratic republic,” unlike the whites, who relied on the Entente, they were oriented toward Germany.

It is worth noting that Krasnov chose the German side during the Great Patriotic War. The reason for this was the fascist views of the ataman, which completely coincided with Hitler’s policies.



Meanwhile, he became imbued with Nazi ideas even before the formation of the Third Reich, during the Civil War. Actually, the dictatorship that he built in the region of the Don Army was extremely close to fascist views.

As a result, 20 years later, in his novel “Lies,” published in 1939, Krasnov openly glorified Adolf Hitler and anti-Semitic ideas.

At the same time, his real collaboration with the Third Reich began in 1943. It was during this period that he headed the Cossack administration under the Rosenberg ministry, and later participated in the formation of the first SS Cossack cavalry division under General von Panwitz.

Krasnov pursued the idea that Russia should be strong and united, but with a decisive German influence. At the same time, he singled out the Cossacks as a separate caste or even a “nation,” often declaring that the Russians were terminally ill, while the Cossacks, on the contrary, were healthy, and only Germany could be their ally.

Hitler pretended to support the above-mentioned ideology. On November 10, 1943, a declaration by the government of the Third Reich was even announced, which refers to the recognition of the Cossacks’ rights to land, identity and protection from the Bolsheviks. However, Krasnov was unaware that in fact the Nazi elite held different views in relation to the Russians, including the Cossacks, and the ataman’s ideas were only his fantasies.

Meanwhile, Pyotr Krasnov remained faithful to Hitler to the last. Having headed the main directorate of the Cossack troops, he intensified its actions against the Red Army in Belarus, Warsaw, Yugoslavia and other places.

Tellingly, Krasnov had a conflict with a traitor just like himself, Vlasov. Ataman saw the latter as a competitor and launched an active campaign against him, emphasizing that he was a former Bolshevik and could not be trusted.

At the end of the war, the British, at the request of the Soviet leadership, handed over the ataman they had captured. As a result, Krasnov was convicted of his crimes and executed in Moscow in January 1947.

          Well, from your message - some the authorities erected a monument, feel the difference.
          Ataman Krasnov was an honored officer and general of the imperial army, during the civil war - the fight against the Bolsheviks, it was his choice.
          Further, in emigration - a comfortable and well-fed life in Germany, I lost my sense of the reality of what was happening around me, clouding of my mind began. The result is known.

      let's not lie frankly
      Despite the fact that this (the existence of the monument) is outrageous, the monument to this scum was erected on the territory of a private courtyard and belongs to a certain Vladimir Melikhov, is part of a private memorial

      In 2017, the Podolsk court sentenced Melikhov for illegal possession of weapons to a year of restriction of freedom - with release from the courtroom in connection with serving time in a pre-trial detention center. Vladimir Melikhov fled to Cyprus.

      Did Krasnov commit crimes against the Russian people? Like the Bendera people in Galicia or the Forest Brothers in the Baltics? Nothing is known about this.
      For example, Comrade Stalin forgave obvious crimes to the same Finns who, in alliance with Germany, carried out the blockade of Leningrad as a result of which up to a million civilians died.
      Nothing is possible, it’s Stalin. Stalin and the rest of the Bolsheviks DESTROYED ALL classes of the Republic of Ingushetia, including the Cossacks, and the fact that the Cossacks did not wait for destruction and went to Germany says only one thing - there was no choice for them.
      And the fact that Krasnov’s views coincided with Hitler’s views regarding the Jews is understandable and explainable. Russia was captured by the Jews with whom it was necessary to fight. Apparently on this platform the unification of Krasnov’s Cossacks and German politics took place.

        Found guilty on all charges, hanged on January 16, 1947. December 25, 1997 The Military Collegium of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation reviewed the criminal case against P. N. Krasnov. The sentence was left unchanged, and the defendant was declared not subject to rehabilitation

          Was it possible to judge Grigory Melekhov for hacking to death a sailor on the road during an attack? It was a war.

              In general, there are statements by top officials of the state, for example Khrushchev, that the Kuban Cossacks were repressed, i.e. sent to Siberia.

              Well, the fact that the ENTIRE class of the peasantry was repressed, which is 80% of the entire population of the Republic of Ingushetia, is known to everyone; this process was called collectivization.

                Who stayed in Kuban, dear man?
                The exiled representatives of the Cossacks and the destruction of all classes are not the same thing.
                “Repressed” cannot be defined as “that is, “exiled to Siberia.” This is just a form of repression, and not the essence of repression. It seems like a trifle, but it shows your level of competence.

                I won’t make any maxims; I see the futility of such an idea. It is enough that it is extremely clear with this: “if he “destroyed all classes,” then there was no population left in the country. Absolutely. No one. After all, every person belonged to one of the classes.” - I showed the absurdity of this - “I DESTROYED ALL classes of the Republic of Ingushetia, including the Cossacks.”

    Yakovlev makes his programs quite interesting, especially for young people who do not like to read books. Somehow I came across a book by P.N. Krasnov. - History of the Don Cossacks (Cossack Glory) - 2007, Yauza Publishing House. Krasnov’s creation itself is so-so, but the introduction of a certain Wolfang Akunov is interesting. I looked at what they wrote about him
    "Full member of the Drozdovsky association (Drozdovsky inc.), White Union of Cossack Troops, senior comrade-in-arms of the Russian Imperial Union-Order, member of the Control and Audit Commission of the International Military Historical Association. Deputy editor-in-chief of the military history magazine "Reitar", teacher of the School of Common Sense , Grand Cross of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem, Knight of the Sovereign Order of the Temple of Jerusalem, full member (academician) of the International Academy of Energy Information Sciences."

    Without at all whitewashing Krasnov, but the article is somehow biased
    Meanwhile, he became imbued with Nazi ideas even before the formation of the Third Reich, during the Civil War. Actually, the dictatorship that he built in the region of the Don Army was extremely close to fascist views.

    As a result, 20 years later, in his novel “Lies,” published in 1939, Krasnov openly glorified Adolf Hitler and anti-Semitic ideas.
    I don’t know about dictatorship, but the utopian novel “Behind the Thistles” (1922), is extremely Orthodox-monarchical. It’s downright strong, that’s why it’s a utopia.
    Hitler pretended to support the above-mentioned ideology. On November 10, 1943, a declaration by the government of the Third Reich was even announced, which refers to the recognition of the Cossacks’ rights to land, identity and protection from the Bolsheviks. However, Krasnov was unaware that in fact the Nazi elite held different views in relation to the Russians, including the Cossacks, and the ataman’s ideas were only his fantasies.
    Hitler considered the Cossacks to be the descendants of the southern Goths, that is, Volskdeutsche. Therefore, the Cossack units were fully supported, unlike other ethnic groups.
    Tellingly, Krasnov had a conflict with a traitor just like himself, Vlasov.
    Krasnov did not swear allegiance to the USSR, unlike Vlasov. Even the trials were different between former whites, such as Krasnov, Shkuro and others, and Vlasovites. That is, the degree of betrayal of Vlasov and Co. is incomparably higher. That's why the conflict

      While in prison, Krasnov was treated extremely correctly - increased rations, relaxed prison regime, polite treatment, asked the investigators how people felt about his arrival in his homeland (!!!???), what they wrote in the newspapers, which put him in a stupor investigators.

      Well, you did a great job!
      Krasnov swore allegiance specifically to the Emperor, who then abdicated. He did not swear allegiance to the Empire. The military did not have such a practice under the kings. Even the Tsar himself did not swear allegiance to the Empire, it was the Empire who swore allegiance to him.

      And if NATO attacks Russia, you have to be as eccentric as Krasnov to go into their service “for the sake of the USSR.”
      However, I believe that there will be such people, although only a few. Our people are incredibly inventive. And if they are able to think of such questions, then things will happen too.

    Having become a fascist henchman, Ataman Krasnov finally took the path of betrayal. Moreover, he no longer became a traitor to the Land of the Soviets (to which he never swore allegiance and of which he was never a citizen), but a traitor to Russia, the very same Russia that he had once sworn to serve faithfully.

    So the attitude of the Cossacks towards the Russians is about x. O. X. fishing by default, is very well depicted both in the novel and in the film based on the novel, "Quiet Don". The most harmless things are bast shoes and rabble.
