Mikhail Pulikovsky was a minor antagonist in Syphon Filter: The Omega Strain.
Pulikovsky was a member of the Chechen Democratic Partizans and second-in-command to its leader Mikhas Ivankov. Faithful in Ivankov's ability to bring victory, he sought the end of Russian occupation of Chechnya but distrusted his associations, particularly Mara Aramov and Mihai Niculescu.
Ivankov tasked Pulikovsky to clear out a chateau in Belarus that the CDP used alongside a nearby section of barns to test the Omega Strain with infected cattle. The Agency was investigating CDP activities at this time, and Pulikovsky captured pilot Alima Haddad after a SMAW missile shot down the copter in which she and Stone were travelling. After apparently killing her (in fact sending her to the Chechen terrorist base), he took it upon himself to brutally interrogate Gary Stoneman, who mounted a lone wolf assault on the chateau to find Haddad. Agency operatives later stormed the structure and rescued Stone. A vicious and violent battle in which the agents and Stone took on the antagonist ended with Pulikovsky's demise.
He is one of the few non-playable characters who uses a knife.
