Yuri is hinted to be affectionate towards his mother. He is also described by Vasily to be claustrophobic.
Yuri appears to look much older than his other brothers with thinner brown hair and a beard that forms into a moustache.
Before Red's incarceration
Yuri was born to Dmitri and Galina "Red" Reznikov after their migration to America from Russia. It is known he was taken to Coney Island frequently by his mother, and was put into employment at Dmitri's Russian Market.
Yuri and his brothers and their father visit Red in prison for Mother's Day. Red asks how the store is doing and they all lie and tell her it is doing well, but Red sees through this and learns that it has closed down ("Mother's Day").
- According to Vee, he is the only "Yuri Reznikov" who lives within a two hundred mile driving radius of Litchfield Penitentiary, information she uses in an attempt to threaten Red.
