Today I played one of the iconic CSGO maps called Cache (note: I haven't played this map since the rework.) and there's one thing kinda hook me up. Who is this person whose photo appears in this small room?

To locate this photo, you just need to go to the B main and in front of the sun room, there's a small room on it.

enter image description here

Inside that room, it appear that there's a General's photo (I guess, since he has a lot of badges) hung up on the wall.

So who is this guy? Why does it appear in that room? Is he responsible for this mess? (I mean the Chernobyl disaster, since Cache is based on Pripyat, Ukraine.)

The map takes place in Pripyat, Ukraine. The Chernobyl Power Plant is visible from the Terrorist spawn, along with nearby buildings and even fencing material consistent with the real-life counterpart.

    medals, not badges (he also has ornate shoulder boards and collar/lapel markings, which implies higher rank) Jun 22 '20 at 9:47
