Artyom meets Ruslan at a jail in Tverskaya, where they talk about each other's lives. There, Artyom learns that Ruslan had a brother named Ahmed who was shot upon approaching the Reich. Later, Artyom is taken from his prison cell and Ruslan bids him a farewell. It's unknown what happened to Ruslan afterwards; it is possible that he was rescued by the Trotskiyist-Chegavorites, escaped to the Arbat Confederation, and reunited with his family.
- According to Ruslan, his eldest son has six fingers in his hands.
- It's from Ruslan for the first time that one can learn that the stations of the Arbat Confederation are mainly inhabited by Caucasians.
- Before the Cataclysm, he worked as a seller of flowers.
