Essential drama from the heart of the country from the world's longest running soap opera. Follow…
Vitaly puts Matt up in a swish hotel. Brenda calls Matt: Lilian's been crying and seems in a state, biting Brenda's head off at times. Lilian's in no state to take care of all the meetings that are racking up and Brenda's been holding the fort alone for two weeks. What's going on? Matt hasn't got time to listen and abruptly ends the call.
At an upmarket art gallery, Vitaly's weary minder tries to call him away to accept a phone call from his Father. Meanwhile, Matt meets an enigmatic Russian woman called Tatyana, who's rather cool with Vitaly. Vitaly whisks Matt away after embarrassing him over some artwork that Matt has been bluffing his way through describing to Tatyana. She still appears rather taken with Matt though, offering him her card.
Vitaly suggests Matt might be interested in a gated community project he is developing in St Petersburg: it will have an English theme and Vitaly wants to hire Matt as a consultant so the project has an authentic feel. Matt's wary, but Vitaly offers to take him to St Petersburg so he can see the project himself and decide. Matt agrees to go and Vitaly suggests his PA could come too. Vitaly assures him he will not disappoint.
