Viktor was one of the members of Vladimir Makarov's Inner Circle, and took part in the Zakhaev Airport Massacre alongside Lev, Kiril, Makarov, and Joseph "Alexei Borodin" Allen. He was the only one besides Makarov to survive, as Lev and Kiril were killed by the FSB and Allen was executed by Makarov. Viktor later participated in the Russian invasion of the United States, where he fought in Virginia. He was killed by the HVI at 4677 Brookmere Road in Virginia in his panic room, but the other Russian Soldier managed to kill the HVI before he could escape. Shepherd sent Sgt. Foley and his squad to rescue the HVI, but found Viktor and the HVI dead, and the final soldier searching the fridge. The US Rangers knew that he was high-ranking because of his unusual tattoos.
