Ivan Lebedev (Cyrillic: Иван Лебедев), also known as the Old Man or The Grandfather, is a character found in the chapter Showdown in Hotline Miami, and the patriarch of the local Russian Mafia. After killing The Father and The Bodyguard, the telephone on the boss's desk rings. The man on the line complains about all of the racket, and angrily hangs up when he does not get an answer. Jacket then takes the elevator up to the room with the wheelchair bound Ivan Lebedev, revealed to be the caller. 

Lebedev asks what business Jacket has here, but he cuts himself off and simply laments his sinful life, stating that "Nothing seems to matter any more, does it?" He gives permission to Jacket to "Just go ahead and do whatever you came here to do.". Jacket shoots him in the head, steps into the balcony, lights a cigarette and tosses the Polaroid over the edge as the credits roll.

IL: Hello...? Hello!?...

IL: What's going on down there? I'm trying to sleep!

IL: Is there anyone there? Can you hear me? Hello?

IL: Goddamn phones! I fucking hate these things!

[Hangs up]

[Jacket approaches]

IL: Ah, so you're the one causing the ruckus?

IL: What's your business here? ... *cough*

IL: Actually... Why don't we skip the details?

IL: I've done so many horrible things...

IL: Nothing seems to really matter anymore, does it?

IL: I'm not going anywhere, as you can see...
