* JustAGangster: Despite having all the reasons in the world to go straight, enough money to live on forever, ''and'' a serious investigation by the police, Yuri passes up numerous chances to get out of illegal arms dealing and remains a criminal. He ''does'' briefly leave arms dealing behind, due to the pleas of his wife, but in the end he returns to it, in part because the legitimate business he tried to get involved with is boring to him with a lower profit margin, in part because [[BecauseImGoodAtIt arms dealing is what Yuri is good at]].

-->'''Yuris Orlov:''' Of all the weapons in the vast Soviet arsenal, nothing was more profitable than Avtomat Kalashnikova model of 1947. More commonly known as the AK-47, or Kalashnikov. It's the world's most popular assault rifle. A weapon all fighters love. An elegantly simple 9 pound amalgamation of forged steel and plywood. It doesn't break, jam, or overheat. It'll shoot whether it's covered in mud or filled with sand. It's so easy, [[ChildSoldier even a child can use it; and they do]]. The Soviets put the gun on a coin. Mozambique put it on their flag. Since the end of the Cold War, the Kalashnikov has become the Russian people's greatest export. After that comes vodka, caviar, and suicidal novelists. One thing is for sure, no one was lining up to buy their cars.
