    I would add that this is not a "simple cossack", a fairly well-known personality - "white general" A.G. Shkuro.
    "...At the end of May 1945, Shkuro was arrested by British troops. When he was arrested by the british, according to S. Steenbergen, "General Shkuro tore off his British Orden and threw it under the feet of the English officer. He demanded weapons, not wishing to surrender to live in Soviet hands "
    And then followed the shameful for the British issue of the Soviet side of the Cossacks who collaborated with the Reich. Gave and Shkuro, though he was a knight of the Order of the Bath - the highest Order of the British Empire, and was not subject to the issuance of the USSR".
    "In 1945, Shkuro was detained by the British forces in Austria and handed over to the Soviet authorities in Operation Keelhaul. The Supreme Court of the USSR sentenced Andrei Shkuro to death. On 17 January 1947, he was executed, together with Pyotr Krasnov, by hanging."
