Deep in the 5th set Reiman has returned to his old stamping grounds to get what will presumably be a favorable hearing from the courts in St. Petersburg. Which are, from first hand experience, not exactly impartial to a little Uncle Sam.

The caveat being that Alfa have been allowed to take Reiman this far. Their protection (krysha) might allow a no-result. Po smotrem.St. Pete Court Will Hear MegaFon Case:
