Vladimi works as a bouncer for Marta.
Vladimi overhears Ward order a drink for himself and ask for his friend Uri Dubrovsky. Unbeknownst to Ward, Yuri had been killed and was apparently an enemy of everyone at the bar. Vladimi pulls out a gun and points it at Ward. A number of the bar patrons then tie up Ward and Fitz and notify their boss, Marta.
