Petruha is a minor character appearing in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl and S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha.

Smart rookie. Wolf seems to like him and often sends him on important missions.
- PDA contact biography


  • Just as in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl where his squad are available for assistance in clearing the Bandits from the nearby facility, the same group are present in the Lost Alpha.

  • Instead of roughing it on a grassy knoll the group now has a small camp in the radioactive and anomaly infested Road Tunnel which they will trade for the Old Factory complex with the player's assistance in the Join the assault group task and subsequent shootout.
  • Removal of the Bandits at the factory is preferable as it makes the Find the second contact mission easier to resolve.
  • There are around six bandits armed with anything from pistols up to Viper 5s, shotguns and Akm 74/2U.
  • Petruha frequently meets his end during the assault.


  • He doesn't cut the player a verbal lashing if the mission is attempted as a solo undertaking. Nor is there an enhanced reward from Wolf afterwards.
  • The "wannabee Rambo" line is given to the player by Wolf in referring to assaulting the Bridge Checkpoint as a later possibility.
