Mission: Protect Russian Ambassador / Misión: Proteger al Embajador Ruso

Yesterday Ultimate Soviets rescued the Russian Ambassador, Yasha Kristovitch, from a terrorist group called the "Knives of Artemis". The Knives of Artemis is an all-female mercenary group, and has a reputation as one of the deadliest paramilitary groups in the world, but they were no rivals for the power of the Soviet!
