Ivan was waiting in the parking of the Russian embassy, beneath Novakovich's office, smoking a cigarette, when he was called by Berkov. Berkov told him to drive the minister to meet Russian President Yuri Suvarov. As he turned to enter the limo, he was beaten and questioned by Jack Bauer concerning Novakovich's whereabouts. Threatened, Ivan gave up numerous details about Novakovich's security, including his location, the number of guards, and the accessibility to his office. Jack beat him unconscious after he was satisfied with Ivan's answers.
