Hang in there! Help is on the way! Download a Rise of the Tomb Raider savegame file.
These Windows PC save files were made using the Steam game patched to the latest version available at the time. As far as I know, subsequent patches do not affect file compatibility, and they should be compatible with other versions (Epic Games, Windows Store, etc.).
Each zip file linked below includes several save files for that level, along with a descriptive text file. Click here for installation instructions and a few IMPORTANT WARNINGS.

NOTE: I played through the entire game before starting the Baba Yaga: Temple of the Witch DLC. You can play this mission using any save after the Soviet Installation Gulag section, but I recommend finishing The Acropolis first, since the grapple axe (wire spool), which is unlocked in that level, will make retrieving one of the collectibles much easier. If you just want to play Baba Yaga but have already beaten the game and deleted your saves, download the 13B: Lost City and Chamber of Souls collection, above, and install the 100% autosave, following the instructions.
