|“||It's what we've been living since 1999 when we left the army of Mother Russia. Many of our comrades died in combat and we said: "To hell with this shit!" They died for what? Politics! Whose politics? Not ours! So we decided from now on to do what we want when we want! It's in their honor we call ourselves Anarchy 99.||„|

|~ Yorgi's last words to Xander|
Yorgi is the main antagonist of the 2002 action-adventure film, xXx. He is a Russian anarchist and the leader of the terror group Anarchy 99, bent on bringing anarchy to the entire world on its knees.
He is portrayed by Marton Csokas, who also plays Teddy.
As Anarchy 99 is rumored to be in possession of a biochemical weapon called "Silent Night", the NSA tries to infiltrate them, but their previous agent is exposed. Yuri, who was over-watching a Rammstein concert, is called by his younger brother Kolya and gives the order to assassinate the agent, which was done successfully. The NSA then decides to change approach by sending a different kind of agent to infiltrate Anarchy 99, and NSA Agent Augustus Gibbons employs the extreme sportist and criminal Xander Cage (the protagonist of the film), who's been promised a full pardon for his past crimes in exchange for his services. Cage, through the Czech agent Milan Sova, meets Yorgi at a party at a club in Prague and blows Sova's cover to gain Yorgi's trust. Xander also that implies that he wants to buy stolen sports cars from Yorgi, who agrees to the deal. At the compound where Yorgi hides the cars, the deal is interrupted by Sova who accidentally breaks a window while following Xander. As Yorgi recognizes Sova from the club he and his men along Xander jump into the cars and pursue a fleeing Sova. To save Sova from Yorgi's wrath, Xander fires a special projectile at him and it seems that Sova is dead when he actually survived. A impressed Yorgi offers Xander to join Anarchy 99, telling him that the group is named in honor of their fallen comrades, who died in the Second Chechen War in 1999.
Cage is invited to stay at the group's castle outside of Prague. He is able to keep Yorgi's trust until he is betrayed by Sova, who believes that Cage is pushing him too far. When Xander meets in a cafe with Yorgi's lover Yelena, he tells her that he is a secret agent and that Sova isn't dead. However, he is forced to escape when Yorgi's assassin Kirill tries to kill him (being informed by Yorgi about Cage's true occupation). Despite his cover blown, Cage manages to infiltrate back into the castle, where he discovers a secret laboratory in which the re-engineering of the gas "Silent Night" has just been finished and a waterborne drone called "Ahab" is revealed. To tie up loose ends and to demonstrate the power of the gas to a witnessing Yelena, Yorgi gasses all the scientists who helped him.
After escaping back to his lair, Cage is confronted by Sova, who reveals that he has betrayed Cage to Yorgi, adding that his government doesn't pay him well as much as Yorgi can. Before Sova could kill Cage, Yelena arrives to the rescue by shooting Sova, revealing that she too is a secret agent, working for Russian intelligence and have been going undercover for two years. With Yelena's help, Cage storms into a nearby monitoring station where he knocks out its communication tower by triggering an avalanche, killing many of the anarchists (including Victor and Kolya).
However, Cage is captured by Yorgi, who also catches wind of Yelena's true occupation. Before Yorgi could kill the two, the castle is attacked by Czech special forces, since Cage's sabotage of the communications tower allowed them access. Yorgi and Kirill are forced to flee while their remaining men are being shot down. While Kirill provides him with cover, Yorgi activates Ahab and programs it to attack Prague in 30 minutes. After Cage kills Kirill with a heat-seeker rocket, Yorgi attempts to escape on a high-powered boat, but Xander manages to shoot him with his gun, which makes Yorgi lose control about his boat and crash it into the rocks, killing him instantly. Xander would later destroy Ahab by ejecting out its main hard drive from the drone to save Prague; thus Yorgi's plans for absolute anarchy have died in vain.
Yorgi is a very manipulative, ruthless, brutal, cold, dark and vicious psychopathic person who enjoys parties but also murdering and wreaking havoc. His supposed reason behind his desire for anarchy was due to the loss of his fellow countrymen during the Second Chechen War, as he feels that politics did nothing but to spread death for their own cause.
Despite his anarchist ways, he genuinely loved his brother Kolya as he mourned for his death, even attempting to kill Xander for causing it after learning about his occupation as a new NSA agent, proving to be quite vengeful.
- He is similar to Alec Trevelyan from Goldeneye, as they are both criminal masterminds who plotted to cause anarchy in revenge for the loss of their loved ones. However, unlike Trevelyan (who plotted to cause anarchy in the U.K. as revenge for his family's demise), Yorgi intends to do so on a worldwide scale.
