A Race to Freedom was a virtual representation of one of Nikolai Orelov's genetic memories, relived by a research analyst at Abstergo Entertainment through the Helix Navigator.


Nikolai was being chased by a tank.


  • Orelov: The Devil take me!

Nikolai ran from the tank.

  • Orelov: Must keep moving!
    That was too close.

Nikolai reached three sniping points and shot each of the tank's weak points, destroying it. He then set to meet Anastasia at the Bolshoi Theatre.

  • Anastasia: You made it. Now... How do I leave this country?
  • Orelov: I have papers. They were made for my wife... Anna. Take them.
  • Anastasia: Anna Anderson? It sounds American, but it'll work, even in Germany.
  • Orelov: I'm sorry, Anya. It's all I can do right now.
  • Anastasia: Thank you, Kolya.
  • Orelov: I was afraid you were... gone. After what they did to you.
  • Anastasia: Go. Take care of your family. Get them on that boat to America. I will never forget what you have done for me, Nikolai.

Anastasia took leave.

  • Orelov: Are you going to be all right, all by yourself?
  • Anastasia: I have strength now, Whether that was Shao Jun or something within me, it does not matter. I know exactly who I am.
  • Orelov: Do you?
  • Anastasia: I am Anna Anderson.


Nikolai destroyed the tank and gave Anastasia documents so she could leave Russia.
