Plot

During the 1999 Russian Presidential elections, the two leading candidates are Igor Komarov Patrick Bergin, a former Colonel of the KGB, and a retired General Nikolai Nikolayev Joss Ackland When a car bomb explodes outside one of Komarov’s pharmaceutical companies, and a virus is stolen from inside, an investigation by the FSB ensues headed by FSB agents Sonia Astrova Annika Peterson and Andrei Kasanov Niko Nicotera Their investigation is obstructed by the Director of the FSB, Anatoly Grishin Ben Cross

A British Embassy worker from Moscow, Sir Nigel Irvine Michael York, tracks down Jason Monk Patrick Swayze, a former CIA operative, who ran double agents in the Soviet Union and convinces him to investigate the incident Once in Moscow, Jason finds an old friend, Viktor Akopov Steve Speirs, who agrees to hide Jason from Komarov’s men Viktor steals a residue sample of the bomb used and his scientist friend Tonkin tells him that the explosive used, Semtex H, has a direct traceable link to the FSB Tonkin is soon killed by Vladimir Dorganosov Tom Wlaschiha, the man who attacked Komarov industries and stole the bioweapon

Sonia and Andrei locate Leonid Zaitzev Theodor Danetti, a cleaner who worked at the Komarov Industries plant and saw Dorganosov steal the virus As they question him, Grishin appears, arrests Zaitzev and fires Sonia and Andrei Zaitzev is later killed by Dorganosov while in custody Sonia goes home to find Jason waiting for her, and agrees to help him access the FSB network However, they are shot at by Dorganosov, and a car chase ensues They go to Andrei’s house where they find him already dead

After the chase, Dorganosov demands the rest of his payment from his contractor, who is revealed to be Anatoly Grishin While they are arguing, Komarov himself arrives and orders Grishin to kill Dorganosov

Jason and Sonia come to realise that Grishin knew about the bombing in advance, and they raid his house for information Jason is injured and, while he is unconscious, Sonia locates his daughter Elena Marta Kondova and brings her to him While trawling through the information from Grishin’s computer, they find a secret manifesto written by Komarov, which tells of his plans to unleash genocide on any "undesirables" in Russia Jason realises that the bombing and the theft of the bioweapon were planned by Komarov, and mark the beginning of the genocide

Jason and Sonia go to Komarov’s Presidential opponent, General Nikolayev, and try to expose Komarov but he announces having vaccinations for all viruses This boosts his popularity, and leads to his election

Jason and Sonia find Komarov's facility outside Moscow and raid it Sonia kills Grishin and takes his phone, which allows them to locate the FSB agents spreading the viruses After Jason secretly hands Grishin's phone to Sir Nigel, he orders the arrest of the rogue FSB agents Komarov’s plan is revealed publicly, and riots ensue in the streets, calling for his resignation While trying to escape, he is killed by the crowds

Nikolayev becomes the acting President, and Sonia is appointed head of the FSB Jason moves back to Spain with Elena, and resumes his job hiring out a fishing boat
