NATASHA

My name is Natasha Rolyouova and I have a secret. I appear to be the perfect symbol of the new Russia - post-Glasnost Russia. I have just been named Cultural Attache to the Russian Embassy in Melbourne, Australia, but I know little about culture. My culture is the culture of political connection and power. In my 30 years I have known political connections, and I have seen how my country's power has been diminished little by little until we became a veritable laughing stock.

Perhaps I shouldn't be telling you this, but this is why I am in Melbourne. To try to regain the great power for Russia; to restore those days when the rest of the world trembled at the sound of our rockets and the sight of our parades. I know, you are wondering how I can help in a city so far from Moscow. Well, I shall tell you my secret.

I am not here for art and friendship. I am here to find a rare piece of Norse art, but not for a museum. That piece of art is the elusive Cross of Odin. This rare piece of Russian State property had been missing for years and then, suddenly, it turned up in an Orthodox Church here in Melbourne. Everyone at the embassy thinks I am trying to find it to return it to the Russian people. They only see a blond party girl, good for a laugh. But this is my secret. That Cross contains some very important codes. Codes for inter-continental ballistic missiles from Finland Station. So you see, I am not interested in art and I have other uses for those parties. I am only interested in restoring my country to its rightful place on the world stage. And I will do anything to see that happen.
