Igor Vsevolodovich Girkin (Russian, ; born 17 December 1970), also known by the alias Igor Ivanovich Strelkov, is a Russian army veteran and former Federal Security Service (FSB) officer who played a key role in the annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation, and later the war in Donbas as an organizer of militant groups in the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR).
Girkin led a group of militants into Ukraine where he participated in the 2014 Siege of Sloviansk, which ended after nearly four months in separatist defeat on 5 July
. During the siege he increased his influence and ultimately became the de facto military commander of all separatist forces in the Donbas region, which was confirmed by the prime minister of the DPR, Alexander Borodai, who on 16 May appointed Girkin as Minister of Defense in the territory.
Girkin was dismissed in August 2014, after 298 people died when Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was shot down.
On 17 November 2022 Girkin was found guilty for the murder of 298 people, convicted of all charges in absentia, and issued a life sentence ( levenslange gevangenis straf voor Igor firkin )
Girkin, a self-described Russian nationalist, was charged by Ukrainian authorities with terrorism
Ukrainian authorities have called him a retired colonel of the GRU (Russia's external military intelligence organisation)en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Igor_Girkin
