Russia is on the verge of fracturing after twenty years of government corruption, patronage, and incompetence.
A nascent protest movement is gathering momentum. And even as the attacks at the rallies, by ministry police with their truncheons, grow in intensity, the number of dissidents continues to rise.
Maxim Petrov, president of Russia, along with the oligarchs and mafia, have bled the country dry by their unbounded greed. And while millions live in 3rd world conditions and are subjected to threats, imprisonment, and one-way passage to Siberia, the president and his cronies live like emperors of yore.
With little left to steal, Petrov plans to invade Eastern Europe and take control of the Baltic States.

Russia faces a famine but Petrov will not ask for help from the West. The honor of Russia is at stake and he believes humiliation will follow any such agreement.
But while Petrov and many in his government care little if there is mass starvation, one man does: General Konstatin Rozkov, Chief of the Armed Forces.
Paul reaches out to Rozkov to join the opposition and attempt to unseat Petrov.
Paul coordinates with General Rozkov and opposition leader Yevgeni Novakoff on a massive march to the Russian Parliament to confront Pushkin and force him to step down.
When Petrov sees that General Rozkov stands with the oppositions, he realizes his position is untenable. He surrenders to the opposition but the attempt to bring Petrov to trial is thwarted by a woman whose husband died due to Petrov’s lack of action. She shoots Petrov as the ex-president is escorted out of the Kremlin.
