As far as I know, the problem mentioned in the walkthrough (where the officer carrying the bag doesn't spawn) has been fixed, and in my recent games he has been in the correct location when I first entered the Chernobyl map. If you haven't reached the Wish Granter yet, I suggest reloading a save from before entering NPP South and see if he is there. You should have an autosave from when you entered the Pripyat stadium.
If you have returned after visiting the Wish Granter, he will probably have despawned, in which case spawning in the bag (sumka_arhara
) has worked for me. However, if you spawn in the bag and don't get a task update to see Sakharov, try using info portion sahar_sumka_have
. This should trigger the message "Deliver the bag to Sakharov
" and Sakharov's dialogue options should now include"Did you receive my postcard
