A glamorous Russian government official has addressed the fate of Australia’s biggest Vladimir Putin fan after the jailed conspiracy theorist deleted his entire video library from YouTube.

Maria Zakharova, the influential spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry, supported Simeon Boikov, the self-proclaimed “Australian Cossack”, and campaigned for his release from a Sydney prison.

Boikov, 32, was arrested outside Drummoyne Sailing Club on May 15 and later denied bail after naming an accused sex offender in a bizarre livestream protest.

On Wednesday, the Russian Foreign Ministry posted on its official account with the hashtag #Zakharova in support of Boikov, indicating an official statement from her.

“Simeon #Boykov, who was arrested in Sydney on May 16, spoke out against a symbolic punishment imposed on a local resident for child courtship,” the Post claimed.

“Healthy forces in Australian society call for Boykov’s release.”

The tweet was accompanied by a photo of Boikov in a military uniform. He has previously stated that he undertook military training in Russia.

Ms. Zakharova is viewed as an icon by Putin supporters in Russia and enjoys the President’s trust.

Boikov is said to have flouted Australian court orders by revealing the name of an alleged perpetrator who was suppressed.

‘Shall I say his name?’ Boikov asked people at his protest before revealing the man’s name.

He then livestreamed his arrest on his YouTube channel, which has 155,000 followers.

He criticized the arrest as an attack on freedom of expression and urged an arresting officer to stop touching “my penis”.

Since his arrest, hundreds of videos Boikov posted on his popular YouTube channel have been deleted by Google and his account suspended.

A YouTube spokesman told Daily Mail Australia that Boikov has been suspended from the channel for spreading misinformation.

“We have called a strike on the Australian Cossack Canal for violating COVID-19 medical misinformation guidelines.”

‘As the second strike on this channel, this resulted in a two-week suspension of posting privileges under our long-standing three-strike system.’

In the livestream video, which was also removed, Boikov claimed he was arrested for sharing the name of someone who is under a non-publication and suppression order.

During the arrest, which was filmed by his partner, Boikov provided a quirky comment.

“Gentlemen, this is the manifesto of democracy,” he says.

“The Australian Cossack is very happy that they loosened the handcuffs. Severe physical injuries can be seen on the wrists.

“You can watch the bruises. It’s very serious. Poor Mrs. Cossack looks on in horror. How do you feel about your husband being treated like this?

“It’s like with the Nazis, in the Gulags, in the concentration camps.”

YouTube policy means a third strike could result in his channel being permanently shut down.

Boikov was taken to Burwood Police Station on May 19, where he was refused bail in Burwood Magistrates’ Court.

Documents presented to the court showed that Boikov was warned not to disclose the suppressed person’s name, as well as non-publication orders.

Boikov’s supporters protested his arrest outside the courthouse and also complained about public health measures.

He was charged with recklessly violating a suppression order, recklessly violating a non-publication order and using a car service to threaten/harass/insult.

The Australian Cossack has made a name for himself with his controversial views on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

He considers President Putin to be the rightful “occupier” of the country.

The 32-year-old uploaded a video in January last year in which he called for Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny to be sent “to a firing squad” and to a “gulag”.

Daily Mail Australia reached out to Boikov for comment.
