Wrong is Right is a mission in Grand Theft Auto IV given to protagonist Niko Bellic by an unnamed government agent working for the United Liberty Paper front company from his office in Easton, Algonquin, Liberty City.


Niko Bellic meets his former girlfriend Michelle outside the office building of United Liberty Paper. Following on from the revelations at the end of "The Snow Storm", she reveals herself to be an employee of the US government and that her name is actually Karen, and the two have a tense conversation before she introduces him to her boss. Karen's boss asks Niko to gather information on Oleg Minkov, a Russian citizen living in Hove Beach, who is extremely paranoid about the government. Niko drives to and then breaks in to Minkov's apartment, using his laptop to read an e-mail from Vasily, talking about a meeting at a jewelery shop. Niko, much to his displeasure, is ordered by Karen's boss to kill Oleg, so he drives to the jewelery shop, also in Hove Beach, but is spotted by the two Russians who split up. Niko follows Minkov and kills him, either through blowing up his car or killing him after he crashes his car in Middle Park West and is knocked out. Niko then phones his United Liberty Paper contact to inform him of Minkov's death.


The reward for completing this mission is $6,500 and the mission Portrait of a Killer is unlocked.
