Counter-Strike 1.6 and CS:GO legend Jeghor "markeloff" Markelov is going to return to the competitive scene with Cossacks.
Vlаdуslаv "bondik" Nеchуроrchuk, another Ukrainian esports veteran spoke about this in a podcast with Konstantin "LENINIW" Sivko.
bondik said that markeloff will return to esports but not as a player and he will be working with him and Ioann "Edward" Sukharjev.

During his time playing Global Offensive, the Ukrainian played for Natus Vincere, HellRaisers and others. He is regarded as one of the greatest AWPers in Counter-Strike history, a player who revolutionized AWPing with his extremely aggressive playstyle that focused heavily on finding entry-kills for his team.
