Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2Edit

Newspaper ExcerptsEdit

  • "Imran Zakhaev was a true leader. Now our country is run by squabbling lackeys and politicians who can hardly be called patriots. Though these men may have called themselves Ultranationalists, though they may have allied themselves with Zakhaev during the civil war, they too, will perish soon enough. Those who would trade their freedom for security deserve neither." - Makarov in a taped message.
  • "I will not rest until I have killed or captured the men who killed Imran Zakhaev. Their countrymen will pay as long as these men live. I will avenge Imran Zakhaev, for all true Russians." - Makarov in the same message, while holding up a picture of John "Soap" MacTavish, John Price, Griggs and Gaz.

Act IEdit

No RussianEdit

  • "С нами бог. Remember - no Russian." - Makarov to his soldiers before assaulting the airport. Also his first words in the series. S nami bog, oddly, translates to "God is with us."
  • "For Zakhaev." - Makarov, before going outside on the terminal.
  • "That was no message....this is a message." - Makarov, while killing Joseph Allen, after the latter's cover was blown.
  • "The American thought he could deceive us. When they find that body...all of Russia will cry for war." - Makarov to his troops after killing Joseph Allen.

Act IIIEdit

The Enemy of My EnemyEdit

  • "Price, one day, you're going to find that cuts both ways." - Makarov, after Price mentions that "the enemy of my enemy is my friend."
  • "Shepherd is using Site Hotel Bravo. You know where it is. I'll see you in hell." - Makarov to Price, also his last words in Modern Warfare 2.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3Edit

Teaser TrailersEdit

  • "Первый. Уничтожите вражескую надежду на победу. (First. Destroy the enemy's hope for victory.)" - Makarov in the America teaser trailer.
  • "Второй. Используйте все в своих интересах. (Second. Use everything to your advantage.)" - Makarov in the England teaser trailer.
  • "Третий. Используйте слабости противника. (Third. Take advantage of your enemy's weakness.)" - Makarov in the France teaser trailer.
  • "Четвёртый. Атакуйте с неожиданной стороны. (Fourth. Attack from the unexpected side.)" - Makarov in the Germany teaser trailer.
  • "It doesn't take the most powerful nations on Earth to create the next global conflict. Just the will of a single man." Makarov in the reveal trailer.
  • "You think I am mad, but soon, you shall see, that every move, every strike, was meant to bring us to this." Makarov in Redemption trailer.
  • "The symbols you have always looked to for strength, are smoldering in ruins. This is what your greed has brought you." Makarov in launch trailer.


  • "All warfare is based on deception. For years, the West's hypocrisy has made the world a battlefield. The corrupt talk; while our brothers and sons spill their own blood. But deceit cuts both ways. The bigger the lie, the more likely people will believe it, and when a nation cries for vengeance, the lie spreads like a wildfire. The fire builds, devouring everything in its path. Our enemies believe that they alone dictate the course of history, but all it takes is the will of a single man." - Makarov in the introduction to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, before the main menu appears. (This cut scene plays every time the game is started and can be skipped. It also plays when the player is idling in the main menu)
