Vinorovsky was a deportee sent from the United States back to the Soviet Union.


Vinorovsky tried to sell some Soviet secrets to the United States during the Cold War. However, Nick Fury discovered the information was "bad", and had him deported.

Months later, Fury went to Budapest, accompanied by another agent named Escobar, and Vinorovsky came across Fury and his partner in a nightclub. Vinorovsky threatened Fury, but Fury disabled him with a hit to the throat.

When Vinorovsky regained consciousness, he put the Soviet authorities onto Fury's trail, leading them to the apartment of a man named Verliecki.[1]
