December 15: I just returned from the funeral of Pavel Dremov. The ceremony began at eight in the morning and lasted until the afternoon – an endless stream of hundreds of people walked to the House of Culture in Stakhanov — locals and visitors, who all wanted to bid farewell to legendary Cossack Ataman.

It was a very cowardly murder. Especially tragic for his wife, widowed immediately after their wedding. That day, he left the wedding ceremony suddenly and went out on some strange call. Just like Alexei Mozgovoi. He rode in a donated car, where an explosive device had already been placed. Who laid it there? When? Who gave him such a wedding gift? Is there a relationship between these actions? I am afraid that we will not know soon…
