After equipping an armor, go inside Perestroika. After the cutscene ends, you will have a Micro-SMG in your hand. Use it to shoot out the two bodyguards in front of you who will try to melee you. Then take cover at the table behind you. There will be two other bodyguards who will try to shoot you. After killing them or injuring Faustin, he will start running away.
After Mikhail starts running away, two more guards will enter the room. After gunning them down, take a shotgun and gun down the other two waiting outside the room. After that, run along the lobby, and three more guards will be waiting for you. After you take them down, Mikhail will be waiting at the terrace. He will shoot you until you reach the terrace, and after you do, he will drop his gun.
At this point, you can shoot him or execute him with a pistol. After killing him, you will get a call from Dimitri.
After some time (6-12 in-game hours), call Dimitri, or he may call you by then for the next mission.
