Dossier: Surkov
  Name: Sergei Surkov

Age: 54

Nationality: Russian

Occupation: International Businessman


Sergei Surkov is a rising businessman in Moscow, and has been courting foreign companies into opening branches in Moscow to further trade and opportunities. A frequent guest at the American Embassy in Moscow, he uses his extensive business connections in Russia as a form of currency to introduce prospective clients to new markets.

Surkov has had a long career, including working with the KGB, rumored ties to the Russian Mafia, and now perhaps the most dangerous role of all, an entrepreneur. He has embraced the new capitalist Russia with a quiet intensity, using his long years in government... and possibly underworld circles... to network beyond Russia's borders and seize opportunities as they appear.

Surkov's mafia ties are more than speculation -- his former role in the criminal underworld was prominent enough that he made a denouncement of his mafia ties many years ago, reforming himself and some of his chosen associates into legitimate businessman. With corporate handshakes and PR opportunities, this makeover to his image has whitewashed the criminal element off him nearly completely, even to other criminals.

Secret Fact: Surkov has legitimate business ties -- to Halbech. Once again, using his many crime and military sources, he has been providing arms and vehicles in a deal that he kept secret to most except for Brayko. Brayko felt betrayed for not being cut into this lucrative deal, and that is what caused the rift between the two bosses. Surkov has admitted to sending someone to kill his former protege in the hopes of taking Brayko out of the picture.
