Events of Call of Pripyat[]

When Major Alexander Degtyarev meets the survivors of Operation Fairway in the abandoned city of Pripyat, Yarmoshuk is among the few who survived the repeated Monolith attacks. He is the doorman of the Laundromat, standing close to the two doors. Like most of the soldiers, he cannot be interacted with; instead, if the player attempts to speak with him, he will advise the player to speak to Kovalsky.

While Degtyarev goes in the secret Lab X-8 in order to investigate the experiments mae by The Group prior to the Zone's creation, Yarmoshuk and his squadmates Skelya, Merkulov and Rogovets are sent by Kovalsky to investigate a radio jammer detected by Kirillov. When Degtyarev returns from X-8, Kovalsky tells him about the disappearance of the squad, and requests the player to find them.

Degtyarev then goes to their last location, where he find the bodies of the soldiers, minus Rogovets. He searches Yarmoshuk's body and finds out that he blew himself up with a grenade. Degtyarev then collects explosives from his body, to use to breach in the Kindergarten.

The cause of their death is never revealed, although it would be likely the psi field that surrounds the Kindergarten that made them insane and shoot themselves.


  • His body never disappears, which means the player can use it as a stash of some sort.
