Pavel Leonidovich Dremov
22.11.1976 – 12.12.2015
The future leader of the militia was born in Kadievka (Stakhanov, until 1978), in the USSR Ukraine.
In 2014, in the first days of the popular insurrection in the South-East of Ukraine after the illegal change of power in Kiev, Pavel Leonidovich took an active part in the future of the region. He proved himself to be a reliable leader and a persuasive speaker, able to convey ideas and inspire his listeners.
After the capture of the SBU in Lugansk in April 6th, 2014, Pavel Leonidovich became the leader of Stakhanov’s militia, which eventually grew into the Sixth separate motorized infantry Cossack regiment named after M. Platov, that he successfully led until the last days of his life.
In addition to performing military tasks, Pavel Leonidovich was a real "Father" for the residents of the city, actively participating in all aspects of its life.
Thanks to him, the number of crimes in the city reduced significantly, drugs completely disappeared and roads were repaired.
Whenever it was possible, the Platov regiment provided humanitarian aid to the residents of Stakhanov and to the surrounding area during the war and after its completion. During the terrible attacks in Pervomaisk in 2014, the Cossack regiments brought and distributed water and bread in the city. Any resident of the city could always come to Pavel Leonidovich and personally tell him about a urgent problem. And be sure that Pavel Leonidovich would do everything to solve it.
Pavel Leonidovich also tried to revive the Cossacks in the city with all his forces. No wonder that he founded a Cossack regiment, to which was given the name of the Cossack Ataman Matvei Platov. The idea of the Cossacks also formed the basis for the creation of the Cossack Media Group.
Until the last days of his life, Colonel Pavel Leonidovich Dremov remained the irreplaceable regimental commander of the Cossacks, and was the beloved Father of all the Stakhanov residents.
After the tragic death of the commander on December 12th, 2015, Stakhanov was like orphaned. His absence was perceived in all spheres of life of the city.
We, the workers of the Cossack Media Group, as well as all residents of the city and of Lugansk People's Republic, mourn and remember our leader. And, in memory of him, we are proud to continue to develop his projects of "Cossack messenger", "Cossack radio" and "New Channel of Novorossia". On the base of this remarkable man, we just can not avoid trying every day to become a better place, in memory of him and for you — our readers, listeners and viewers.
Briefly about us
Our founder was a man of justice
The Cossack media group, which includes the "Cossack radio", the newspaper "Cossack Messenger" and the TV channel "New Channel of Novorossiya", was founded by the commander of the Sixth separate motorized infantry Cossack regiment “Matvei Platov". His name was Pavel Leonidovich Dremov. He founded a military group in the hot summer of 2014 — to be exact, in August of that year, when we, like the rest of Donbass, lived and worked in harsh and life-threatening conditions. After the tragic death of our founder in December 2015, it was decided not to close the group and to continue his cause. At the moment, our media group is in active development, and every day our team is doing everything possible in order to perpetuate the memory of this remarkable man, of his actions and his invaluable contribution to the creation and the development of the Luhansk People's Republic.
