Vasily Reznikov is one of the three sons of Galina "Red" Reznikov and Dmitri Reznikov.


Vasily is hinted to be the least masculine of the Reznikov brothers due to his tendency to become emotional when discussing Lida, his girlfriend. His mother often mocks him over his lack of masculinity.

Physical Appearance[]

Vasily has short black hair and tanned skin, he wears a golden chain and was given a bruise by Lida at some time during season two.


Before Red's incarceration[]

Vasily is one of Red's three sons. During his childhood, his mother often took him and his brothers to Coney Island.

Season Two[]

He has a girlfriend named Lida, who is also the mother of his son. He and his girlfriend often get into arguments that tend to end with Lida throwing things or hitting Vasily, which Red blames on him as he comes home drunk.
