Ivan Checkov was a member of a Russian organized crime syndicate with the Soldier status, who was the first kill the Saints ever made.
Little, if anything, is known of Ivan's life before his death.
Ivan was sent by Yuri Petrova to force Doc to close down the bar which the MacManus brothers visited often. When Rocco started a fight with Ivan, he and his partners were out numbered and seriously maimed. The next day, Ivan sought revenge on the MacManus brothers where he cuffed Connor to a toilet seat and brought Murphy out to an alleyway to get shot. Connor escaped from his cuffs and killed Ivan by dropping a toilet on his head before he could kill Murphy. Then, Murphy killed Vladdy by beating him to death with a toilet lid.
