Message from M, Head of MI-6:
You do seem to have a nose for trouble, 007. We don't know what Davidov was intending to do here, and we don't know who else is involved, so be careful about trusting anyone until you're sure about their loyalties.
Mission Location & Personnel
Message from Robinson, Chief of Staff:
Right, Bond, you're now in one of the more desolate regions of Kazakhstan. This place is one of the old Soviet nuclear testing facilities, owned by the Russian Atomic Energy Department. We've kept an eye on all these places for years. This one is in the process of being decommissioned - they're disarming and dismantling any remaining warheads now.
The other scientists are the International Decommisioning Agency, which is a United Nations-sponsored organization. They'll be managing the decommissioning to make sure it's environmentally responsible and safe.
The whole place is being guarded by the CIS army, under the command of a man named Colonel Akakievich. Now, any of the people here may be secretly working for Renard - those men you are with are disguised as Russian scientists - so keep pretending you're Dr. Arkov until you know what's really going on.
Message from R, Q Branch:
You're on your own for this one Bond. Keep your cool and I'm sure you'll be fine. You're now disguised as Dr. Arkov. He was supposed to be on assignment decommissioning this testing facility, and it looks as if Davidov killed him to take his place.
