"'Well what doubt can there be of it: the undertaking has been set like the mechanism of a clock; unless I stop this deed now, then, believe me as a friend, the deed is in the bag!'"
...by way of Angliisky Prospect and Voznesensky Prospect to Izmailovsky Prospect (below).
"I (Savinkov) turned back along Sadovaya Street and left by way of Voznesensky towards Izmailovsky Prospect with the intention of meeting up with the metal workers at the spot between First Regiment Armory (Pervaya Rota) and Obvodny Canal. From the appearance of the street I surmised that Plehve was about to pass by. Overall, the atmosphere was nervous and tense. At certain spots of the street there were plainclothes (police) men."**
This circuitous route placed him up a good distance from the assassins near Obvodny canal (below) on Ismailovsky Prospect. From this postion, he was between Plehve's carriage and his coconspirators.
Savinkov recapped the plan as follows:
"Sazonov, Kaliaev, Borishansky, Sikorsky, and I gathered at the Pokrova (Church) on Savodaya Street. From here the metal workers would go in the prearranged order, one after the other—Borishansky first, Sazonov second, Kaliaev third, and Sikorsky fourth—along Angliisky Street and Drovyannaya Street to Obvodny Canal and then, turning along the canal and heading past the Baltic and Warsaw train stations, they would meet Plehve on Izmailovsky Street. The time was calculated so that walking at a normal pace they would meet Plehve on Izmailovsky between Obvodny Canal and the First Regiment Armory (Pervaia Rota). They kept a distance of 40 paces from each other, this would decrease the danger from the detonation of the explosion. Borishansky would let Plehve pass him by and then to block his way back to his dacha. Sazonov was to throw the first bomb."**
