    Synopsis: In Red Square in Moscow, the team is attacked by ninjas who had been disguised as soldiers. They are just as abruptly rescued by three gunmen (well, one's a woman, but you think of a word for them, then) and escorted to KGB headquarters. There, Romanov explains the Hand is trying to take over the Omega Red facility, and he asks for their help.
    They attack the facility with Russian assistance, and are beset by ninjas. Jean-Paul gets cut, while Jeanne-Marie creates quite a blast. Heather and Alexei penetrate the base, enter the self-destruct codes, and blow it up. They have lost five Russians.
