Aleksei Vasilii Guba is the arch-villain in the computer game Operation Flashpoint, who served as a gulag commissar and earned the nickname “The Dentist”. His exact role in the Union (and specifically Russian) military is unclear, although a televised news report suggests that if he is not in the direct chain of command, he is at least acting as an advisory body.
Guba is a vocal critic of Thorvald of Lym, frequently expressing discontent with what he feels is Thorvald's prioritization of the Union's self-image over its federal and national interests. He paid the development of the Anglo-Coruscant-Union Treaty particular scrutiny, expecting Thorvald to sell out to appease the Republic of Coruscant. He described watching the proceedings as "my own little method of torture".
Guba is loosely comparable to Coruscanti captain Francis Durga, a man who is also dissatisfied with his nation's course of action and who voices his opinions regardless of etiquette. Durga allegedly considers himself Guba's rival.
Guba was particularly interested in the zombie menace, and involved himself with military planning regarding the crisis. His policy was "complete extermination"; his ultimatum to the zombie masters promised "genocidal measures" would be taken if they did not vacate Union territory. To that end, Guba masterminded an ambitious plan to detonate an SS-20 warhead containing a counter-agent over the Moscow Oblast, whereby natural dispersal would immunize the countries. The plan was costly and untested, and fortunately the crisis was resolved before it became a plausible option.
