V. V. Fedulenko was born in Kazan' on 22 February 1894. He graduated from the Alekseevskoe voennoe uchilishche in December 1914, was commissioned as an officer and sent to the front. Demobilized in January 1918, he returned to Kazan', where he joined the White Army in September of that year. He remained in its ranks until his evacuation from Vladivostok in October of 1922 with the flotilla of Admiral Iu. K. Stark.
His life and activities in Shanghai through the end of the Second World War were recorded in an oral history entitled Russian Émigré Life in Shanghai, by the University of California Berkeley Regional Oral History Office as part of its Russian émigrés project. At the conclusion of that war, Fedulenko was the deputy head of the Russian Emigrants Association of Shanghai, and assisted in the evacuation of thousands of Russians to Tubabao camp in the Philippines. Arriving in San Francisco in July 1950, he took an active role in helping the Russian refugees leave Tubabao for the United States and Australia.
