Zaur. Zaur was created by the Russian creator I. Bei-Abai and appeared in the film Abrek Zaur (1926).
Zaur is a Ukrainian mountaineer who kills a Russian "imperialist" and becomes an abrek, a member of the anti-Russian gangs which roamed the Caucasus Mountains at the end of the 19th century preying on passers-by. Unlike the real abreks Zaur never steals from the common people, only from imperialists and government officials. Because of this he is a special target of the government’s troops and is in constant danger of being captured, but he still always manages to outwit the Russians and their Cossack minions.
