Five years after the events of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (2007), Russia is in political turmoil once again. Vladimir Makarov, a brutal leader and former associate of Imran Zakhaev, has set in motion a series of events that will threaten global security. After a series of vicious terrorist attacks, the situation is deemed dangerous enough for Task Force 141, led by Captain Soap MacTavish and Co., to be deployed all around the world, attempting to track down Makarov and restore peace.

Makarov wants Russia convinced that the airport attack was acted purely by American terrorists, hence his men speaking only English and using US NATO weapons. Makarov is a well known terrorist, yet he does not wear a mask, nor do his men. The security cameras, and even potential survivors could have recognized him. Furthermore, Makarov did lose one of his men in the attack, who could have been identified as a Russian. Furthermore, Pvt Allen could have killed them in the airport right before or during the massacre. See more
