Commissar Viktor Durasov is a Russian soldier in Call of Duty: Finest Hour. He is seen in the beginning of the first level, "Not One Step Back", in the row boat carrying the player and other soldiers. He gives a speech to the soldiers, and even while the boat was being attacked by stukas, he still carried on with his speech.
Later in the level, Durasov is about to start a mass attack by yelling "Forward comrades! Defend your Motherland! Send death to the German invader!" to his troops right when Sokolov and Puskov walked in. The soldiers then charged an MG42 nest, taking nearly 100% casualties while Sokolov and Puskov flanked the nest and killed the gunners. Durasov stayed back behind a brick wall during the attack.
- "Welcome to Stalingrad. You are about to begin the greatest moment of your life. The Germans have lost hundreds of tanks and planes. Hitler's brutalized hordes are now are now advancing towards Stalingrad over mountains of their own dead bodies. Our Bolshevik Party, our nation, our great country, has given us the task not to let the enemy reach the Volga and defend the city of Stalingrad. Forward against the enemy! Up into the unremitting battle, comrades, for Stalingrad, for our great country! Not one step back! Cowards and traitors will be shot! Do not count days, do not count miles, count only the number of Germans you have killed! Kill the German - this is your mother's prayer. Kill the German - this is the cry of your Russian earth. Do not waver! Do not let up! Kill! Death to the German invader! Go, go, go!"
- — The speech Durasov gives the soldiers on the player's boat at the start of the game.
