Yuri spent his early childhood as a child that grew up being beaten and with no loving family. He had grown up around friends that had nothing but crime and illegal activities that made his morals low for someone of his age. When he turned 17 he got caught on the streets of Moscow breaking into someone's house, and was arrested directly after. The judge gave Yuri a simple choice join the Russian Army or been in jail for the next 6 years. Being the smart man he was becoming he chose the first.
He made a lot of friends along the way but when the civil war broke out he knew that he would start to have his world crumble around him. Sure enough 6 months into the war his unit was deployed to Chernarus and fighting along the way it seemed that all his friends were dying around him . Coming out of the deployment he was a changed man and volunteered for special forces for SVR. He went through the training and was instantly deployed back into the civil war, on a raid he was captured by the CDF and tortured, and was whipped and made scars all over his body. He made it out barely alive and clinging to life as he crawled the sewers for days to prevent from getting captured again. This is just the start of his hate for the CDF and Chernorussian Nationalist. He has watched his brothers in arms get tortured and killed by the CDF and now he burns with a vengeance against the organization that threatened his way of life and the way of the life of the Russian people.
When he made it back finally he knew that he had to stay after losing so much he had no where to go from here. Yuri volunteered for a special mission to be assigned in an undisclosed location and further information is on going and currently information is being held in order to safe the operatives whereabouts and mission on hand.
