Katerina Rudenko was the chief medical officer aboard the Cosmonaut Alexei Leonov. She had a prominent role in 2010: Odyssey Two.

In the film adaptation, 2010, Rudenko is male, and has the first name Vladimir. He is the member of the Leonov crew who oversees the revival of Walter Curnow and Dr. Chandra from cryogenic sleep. Vladimir is distrustful of the American crewmembers (acting like "he'd found [them] under a rock") but later grows to respect and work with them.
