Short summary

The concluding leg of the adventurer's epic journey begins in Crimea, which became part of neighboring Ukraine only since Soviet leader Crushtsev, but was annexed by Russia in 2014, yet reintegration into Russia may prove a disaster for all concerned despite all Putin's investments besides the trouble across the Ukrainian border.

Arriving in Moscow he meets a woman who was arrested for protesting against her flat being demolished, and finally arrives in St Petersburg, where he joins fighters at a patriotic martial arts club.
