It is a troubling time in the world as a Soviet leader dies from heart failure and a new one steps in to take his place. Not much is known about this new leader Alexander Nemerov (Ciaran Hinds) except that he is seen to be a Soviet hardliner and a person that wants the world to know that Chechnya is an internal affair and not to trouble Russia about it.

James Marshall (Harrison Ford), the President of the United States is in Moscow to make a speech congratulating Russian President Petrov (Alan Woolf) for the capture of Radek. Marshall sets the room aflame with his speech as it is not the one that was written form him, instead he tells those in the room and all those watching the even all over the world that terrorists and terrorism will no longer be tolerated.
