Artyom Popov (Russian: Артём Попов) is one of the four main characters in Metro 2034 - alongside Homer, Sasha, and Hunter.


Since the book's plot is presented through the contrasting perspectives of various personas, one half of the narrative is focused on the aforementioned trio whereas the other half follows Popov. Artyom is not as primary a character to the story as Homer or Sasha are. In 2034, he is a soldier stationed as part of the garrison at Tulskaya Station.
