Then, in a remote corner of Siberia, encircled from all sides by the bounty hunters and very close to a tragic finale, the fugitives hear the battle sounds; help comes from their real friends and brothers—the pomors from the White Sea shores and aboriginal Nenets people, historical owners of the tundra. The sea people pomors, called in the past Ice Vikings, successfully get through that secret century-old route, north of the Arctic Circle, across the Kara Sea and Yamal Peninsula. The route their ancestors once upon a time had traced in deviation of the ruthless tsar guards and Moscow’s rulers. And now, almost four centuries later, they rediscover the route to freedom and escape from other merciless rulers. Once again, as in the past, the northern people of this enormous country come to help and protect against the dominance of brutal power.
