Vitaly was born in Ukraine but never accepted his nationality. He has always been loyal to Russia. When Civil war broke out in Ukraine he joined the Russian Separatist Militia forces of the DPR. He fought and defended Donetsk with great bravery. He was wounded in the leg and was taken back across the border into Russia to be treated there. Once he was discharged from the hospital he met Nintinskivitch in a pub and they hit it off. They both shared the same White Nationalist ideals and quickly assembled a large group of supporters. He went with his boys to Chernarus to reclaim it for Mother Russia and rid the country of the impure.
