Before the massacre at Zakhaev International Airport, Lev, Kiril, and Vladimir Makarov attempted to kill Yuri in the parking garage who was supposedly trying to "back-out" of the murderous event. He then assaulted the Zakhaev International Airport with Makarov, Joseph "Alexei Borodin" Allen, Viktor, and Lev. He was killed while combating the FSB on the tarmac area. Like his squadmates, he spoke in a forced General American accent and used American military jargon.
- Kiril briefly appears in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 in Yuri's flashback when he is holding him down. However, the player will have to look sharply to the left to see him.
- Kiril's neck tattoos include Stalin and a topless woman.
- In the Museum level, if the player shoots Makarov as he is grabbing him before the animation ends, Kiril will walk out of the diorama and put his Striker up as if he is about to shoot, and then freeze.
