Nikolai Kormiltsev (Russian: Николай Кормильцев, born 12 August 1946, Omsk, Soviet Union) was a colonel general in the Soviet and later Russian army, before committing the 1995 coup d'état against President Boris Yeltsin, becoming the acting President of Russia. A colonel general of the Russian Ground Forces, he originally served as an officer of the Soviet Army, and fought in Afghanistan. Kormiltsev later became the commander of the Western Military District under the Russian Armed Forces following the collapse of the Soviet Union. His overthrow of Yeltsin in 1995 was met with mostly enthusiasm from the Russian people, but still sparked the Second Russian Civil War.
