Nationality Russia Russian

Vsevolod Kapalkin is the incumbent President of Russia. He was first elected in May 2012 and his term of office will expire in May 2020 unless some catastrophic event should force him to invoke Emergency Powers. Kapalkin is focused and businesslike. To his peers he always seems a little bored, on the verge of annoyance. He is athletic and stays in shape by swimming and lifting weights daily.

He rules Russia in an iron grasp, making him hated by some Russians and was even the target of a failed assassination attempt.

In the EndWar novel, he first appears talking to General Sergei Izotov about the kidnapping of Colonel Pavel Doletskya. He has "a pronounced jaw, penetrating eyes, and impeccably combed hair." It is mentioned that his father was a low-level KGB officer and that Kapalkin himself amassed his personal fortune, starting at university, by smuggling luxury items such as computers and blue jeans. It is also stated that he is the co-owner and chairman of one of Russia's largest oil and gas corporations.

In The Missing, it is also mentioned that he has a sadistic streak, with Snegurochka having had to assist in the cover up the rape, torture and murder of several prostitutes at Kapalkin's hands.

Kapalkin appears to have replaced the real life Russian President Vladimir Putin, who, according to the KV-20 Zhukov's description, has retired by the time the game takes place.
