The Russian Hideout was the main warehouse used by Russian Mafia. Following its destruction during the Bombing of Hell's Kitchen, it became a warehouse used by Victor and Antoine Grier to cultivate marijuana plants.
Revenge of the Brother
James Wesley entered the office, sending regards and gratitude from his employer due to the Ranskahov brothers having accepted his offer. However, Wesley told him they needed to discuss some details when he seemingly noticed that Anatoly was missing.
Vladimir was about to ask Wesley about him, as the last time Anatoly was seen, he was going to visit Wesley's employer, stopping right before saying his name, which made Wesley smile. Wesley then asked if he had a girl or boy he might be celebrating with, but prompted him to locate his brother quickly, as they needed to get their distribution back to acceptable levels. Their meeting was interrupted by Sergei, who announced that they had found Anatoly.
Anatoly's headless corpse was taken to the office, and Sergei explained they found him lying in a lot. Vladimir cried, regretting not having returned to Moscow like his brother wanted, and suddenly he found a black mask inside one his brother's pockets.
Blood of War
Vladimir Ranskahov cleaned his brother Anatoly's corpse inside his office, until he was interrupted by Turk Barrett, who had announced he had discovered something regarding his brother's death. Sergei accompanied Barrett inside the office, and Barrett gave Ranskahov his condolences.
Barrett had learnt from one of his former cellmates at Ryker's Island that a big, bald and white man took his SUV to the chop shop in order to be cleaned, as its backseat was splattered with blood and brains. Ranskahov assumed it belonged to Fisk, and Barrett said that, according to his contact, Fisk seemed to be close to the man in the black mask.
Ranskahov then assumed that the man in the mask worked for Fisk, and he had been playing them since the man started damaging their operations. Ranskahov ordered Sergei to tell all their men to get ready for an assault with all the weapons they had, and asked Barrett to spread the word that he would pay 1 million to the person who could reveal Fisk's location that same night.
Left alone with Anatoly's corpse, Vladimir promised to honor his brother with the blood of war.
Preparing the Attack
Sergei informed Vladimir Ranskahov that Turk Barrett received a call that had informed about Wilson Fisk's location. Ranskahov ordered him to prepare their men, but also warned that nobody would touch Fisk, as he was his.
One of Madame Gao's drug runners arrived at the warehouse, announcing he had a delivery, and he was allowed to enter inside. Just as he entered, the man in the black mask attacked the remaining guard at the door.
Inside the warehouse, the Russians prepared their weapons to attack Wilson Fisk, and Vladimir Ranskahov asked Sergei, one of his subordinates, if the rest of their men were ready at the other warehouses. Sergei assured him they were ready and waiting for a call, so Ranskahov ordered him to make it.
Sergei noticed the drug runner, and wondered if they were expecting a delivery from Madame Gao. Ranskahov then saw the detonator in the drug runner's hand as he raised it, and tried to take cover before he activated it.
Outside, Murdock realized what was about to happen, and took cover behind the guard and the warehouse's door, while a large explosion destroyed the warehouse and threw him to the ground.
Finishing the Job
Detectives Christian Blake and Carl Hoffman led a squad into the destroyed warehouse to learn about Vladimir Ranskahov's possible location. Blake found Ivan, one of the Russians, heavily injured and trapped under debris. Blake complained that the man in the mask knew he was righty when he broke his arm, and handed Hoffman his flashlight to take his gun.
Blake approached Ivan and began to crush him with the debris and interrogate him about Ranskahov's whereabouts. Ivan told him he did not know, making Blake crush him again. Ivan swore he did not know and begged Blake to stop. Hoffman nodded as he believed that Ivan did not know anything.
Blake shot Ivan in the head, killing him, and ordered the rest of officers to do the same if they found anyone alive in the building.
