Dimitri Mayakovsky

Dimitri "Dima" Mayakovsky (Russian: Дмитрий "Дима" Маяковский) is the deuteragonist in the singleplayer campaign of Battlefield 3 as well as a supporting character in Battlefield 4. Dima is a Russian GRU agent who attempts to stop the People's Liberation and Resistance operatives from detonating a nuclear bomb in the heart of Paris. He was formerly a member of the Spetsnaz, having fought in the Soviet-Afghan War in the 1980s. Dima and two other agents, Kiril and Vladimir are deployed to Northern Iran to capture Amir Kaffarov, a Russian arms dealer who sold the nuclear warheads to the People's Liberation and Resistance, an Iranian terrorist organization Dima and Kiril fight their way through a large force of Kaffarov's body guards to finally reach and interrogate Kaffarov. After getting the necessary information, Dima meets Henry Blackburn, a U.S. Marine deployed in Iran. Dima reveals that Solomon, a rogue CIA agent is actually aiding the PLR, and is planning nuclear attack in Paris and New York. Shortly afterwards, Blackburn is forced to shoot his commanding officer in order to prevent him from shooting both Blackburn and Dima. Blackburn is taken to New York, where he escape interrogations by two CIA agents and intercepts the subway train carrying the bomb, eliminates Solomon, and prevents the nuclear detonation.

Dima appears again in Battlefield 4, somehow ending up in the same prison in the Kunlun Mountains of China as the player character, a US Marine named Recker. Dima and Recker escape the prison along with the rest of Recker's squad, however, as they escape in an aerial tram, Dima is killed by a stray bullet.
