In manual, he is referred as Russian, but there is no such name "Igmus" in the Russian language, and a surname "Palkov" is not possible according to the rules of Russian surname building ("Polkov" or "Palkin" were possible). In the official Russian localization by Buka, he was named "Igor Palkin". This is similar to Ivan Dolvich (while surnames ending with -ich have origins in Belorussia, too, "Dolvich" is more likely to be a Serbian surname than Russian). Only Victor Kolesnikov from Wildfire has a valid Russian surname — quite logically since the modification's author is Russian himself.
