Dimitri was a Russian agent and gunman who worked with his lieutenant Markov, who in turned work for Gretchen Von KluMeister as part of a plot to bomb the Washington D.C. Rotunda. During a misleading hostage exchange for Gretchen’s grandfather, Dimitri and Markov were both beaten down by Dick Tracy who was in disguise as the elderly gentleman. They would then tell the CIA in fact the grandfather was the real enemy, which was a ruse to gain their freedom. Together with Gretchen, the two gunmen hijacked a news helicopter and attempted to crash into the Rotunda but were brought down early by Dick Tracy. Dimitri was unharmed but taken into custody. Dimitri may have been named Alexi earlier in the storyline.
