(Russian: Нестор Иванович Махно)

Ukrainian political figure. Anarchist-communist, leader of the Insurgent Army of Ukraine after the revolution of 1917.

Makhno was a Ukrainian anarcho-communist guerrilla leader turned army commander who led an independent anarchist army in Ukraine during the Russian Civil War. In 1906, at the age of seventeen, Makhno became involved in terrorist activities.

A commander of the peasant Revolutionary Insurrectionary Army of Ukraine, also known as the Anarchist Black Army, Makhno led a guerrilla campaign during the Russian Civil War. He supported the Bolsheviks, the Ukrainian Directory, the Bolsheviks again, and then turned to organizing the Free Territory of Ukraine, an anarchist society. This project was cut short by the consolidation of Bolshevik power. Makhno's forces were accused of conducting pogroms against Jews in Ukraine.

He is also credited as the inventor of the tachanka, a horse-drawn platform mounting a heavy machine gun.

Makhno was portrayed as a heavy drinker. Voline (Vsevolod Eikhenbaum) wrote that "Makhno's greatest fault was certainly the abuse of alcohol.
