Jilf Sgrobe is talking with The Client; he is concerned about his identity being discovered. Sgrobe reassures him that his file is completely safe hidden inside a secret room in the most secure building in Moscow, the Lubyanka the old KGB building.

A couple of police officers are driving when they apparently hit a pedestrian. When they get out to investigate their accident, Storm Shadow knocks them out and steals a uniform.
At the Lubyanka, hundreds of police officers and Spetsnaz soldiers are surrounding the Lubyanka to prevent Storm Shadow form gaining access. A Captain Bulgokov escorts Pale Peony to the secret sub basement where the Client's identity files are being held. Storm Shadow just appears as they pull the file. Peony and Bulgokov attack Storm Shadow. Peony actually does well against Storm Shadow but he escapes out the main door locking them inside. As he turns around, a five man squad of Spetsnaz has him at gunpoint. Storm Shadow jumps above them coming down in the middle of them easily taking them all out. Peony and Bulgokov get out the room and find the four bodies of the Spetsnaz team. After some investigation they discover the fifth member without his uniform.
Storm Shadow is able to just walk out of the Lubyanka with the file disguised as a Spetsnaz soldier.
Back in Sgrobe office, Peony reports that Storm Shadow has stolen the Client's secret file. She knows how to draw Storm Shadow to them and it will happen in Tokyo.
