According to Officer Grigoriy, Viktor became the leader of the Russian Mafia after killing Nikita Dumchov, whom he stole the car from. Grigoriy then orders Crypto (disguised as a fellow officer) to kill Nikita to put an end to the Russian Mafia's activities.
Crypto then tracks down Viktor Tanayev at the Russian Mafia base and then kills him.
- His name is incorrectly spelled as "Victor" at some points.
- Viktor's model is the same as other Mafia members, but he wears a golden peace necklace. This is ironic, considering him being a criminal.
