He was portrayed by Carl McCrystal.
Trukhin was involved in Elektra and Renard's plot to destroy Istanbul with a nuclear weapon in order to sabotage the Russian oil pipeline so that they can monopolize the world's oil market for profit. As part of the plan, he was tasked to infiltrate a nuclear facility in Kazakhstan alongside several others.
He was first seen awaiting the arrival of Sasha Davidov as the latter was tasked to pose as the deceased Mikhail Arkov, but only finds James Bond arriving to the scene. Unaware of Bond's identity, Trukhin mistakes him for one of Elektra's men and escorts him to a plane bound for a nuclear facility in Kazakhstan. Aboard the plane, Trukhin hands Bond a blue jumpsuit and I.D. tag.
However, it turns out that Bond was being used by Renard to lead Trukhin and the rest of Renard's thugs through the nuclear facility's checkpoints. All goes to plan and Renard is able to escape with a cache of weapon's-grade plutonium. Outside the facility, Renard meets Trukhin alongside the remaining henchmen, and they drive off towards the plane while killing more of the guards.
It is unknown what happened to Trukhin following the deaths of Elektra and Renard. However, in the novelization of the film, it was revealed that Trukhin accompanied Renard in the submarine and was killed alongside the rest of Renard's men when Bond rammed the submarine to the ocean floor.
