Additional description
The list of the existing parts listed here is probably incomplete, i.e. there are very few pictures. The windmill is a Volga region smock. It is in a quite good condition. Strangely enough, in Mari El and Kirov region the abandoned mills are often in good condition.

The main source of information is the report here, starting from the seventh picture.

In some sources this mill is often being confused with a mill from the village of Baryshniki, which was dismantled to be transported to Kotelnich, but was never assembled in a new place. Apparently, this misunderstanding results from the fact that here (the story about a search of the surviving mills of Kirov region), both mills are mentioned as the found ones. Also here you can find a photo of the mill from Krasilovskie that goes before the article about the future transportation of the mill from the village of Baryshniki. This statement is incorrect, because there is a "bush" in front of this mill, and there is a "tree" in front of the dismantled mill. In addition, if you try well, you can find pictures of the mill dating to 2015-2016, which is five years after the mill from the village of Baryshniki was dismantled.

The windmill collapsed in spring 2020 (photo below).

However wonderful people appeared in summer 2021 who are creating Vyatka museum. The windmill was carefully transported, photos: here, here, here, here. Lets hope, that they will succeed!
