"In this life, a man fights for himself."

Yuri (also called Yuri the Bear) is a high-ranking member of the Solntsevskaya Bratva and possibly its leader. It is also implied he was incarcerated in Koshmar prison at some point of his life.


In 1986, Yuri was approached by Rip Hunter and Leonard Snart, who needed his help to break their friends out from Koshmar prison. At first, Yuri refused to help them, even though he didn't like Vandal Savage, claiming the man didn't respect the criminal traditions of his country. However, Sara Lance was able to change his mind. Yuri provided the team with information how to break into the prison by using the Bratva's black market access to Koshmar.[1]


  • Yuri has a Bratva star tattoo on each of his shoulders, possibly marking him as leader of Bratva.
  • Yuri also has the letters МИР tattooed on his back. Although the word means "peace", the letters are actually an abbreviation of "Menya ispravit rasstrel", which Rip Hunter translated as "execution will reform me". The tattoo marks Yuri as a thief in the eyes of the law.
  • The orthodox church tattoo on Yuri's back means he was once imprisoned.
