Vladimir "Vlad" Glebov (Russian: Владимир Глебов) is a Russian loan-shark in Hove Beach, Broker. Vlad refers to Niko as "Yokel" or "Fatty Roman's Cousin". Glebov owns a Russian bar called Comrades in the neighborhood. Glebov attempts to increase his status with the other Russian gangsters like Mikhail Faustin by doing collections for them. He also employs Niko Bellic, initially to help enforce his protection racket but also for low-level assassinations, including that of Ivan Bytchkov. He also threatens Roman constantly and regularly fails to protect him from the Albanian Mafia, despite promises to the contrary. It is implied that Vlad is a heavy drinker, abuses cocaine, and is a womanizer. Vlad drives a sky blue Marbelle, as seen in the cut-scene for Clean Getaway and the chase sequence in Uncle Vlad.
After Niko learns that Vlad has been having an affair with Mallorie Bardas behind his cousin Roman's back, Niko confronts Vlad at Comrades Bar. After a brief chase through the neighborhood, Niko shoots Vlad in the left eye under the Algonquin Bridge before tossing his corpse into the Humboldt River, ignoring the fact that his boss, Mikhail Faustin, will certainly track down the man responsible for his murder. Mikhail later admits that Vlad was an idiot, and the only reason he was still employed in his organization was because Mikhail "fucks his (Vlad's) sister."(Implying that Mikhail cheated on his wife) Since Vlad is not found after being killed, the LCPD database lists him as "missing".
Vlad usually speaks in a Medieval European tone, constantly referring to people as "peasants".
