I was in the map. By coincidence I entered Swamps from Agroprom, so the emission struck around the same place as in the intro cut scene.

LOL
Sounds like the first mission might indeed be messing with the emission effects. (Don't know for sure though.)

I was wondering what would happen if I made myself die by a later emission in the Swamps. Would I wake up in the Clear Sky base as if nothing had happened? Since emissions never take place in the Swamps (after the first two) I had to wait for one to be forecasted outside the Swamps, and then change level in order to be inside the Swamps when it hit.

Alas this made the game get stuck after the "Hide from emission" task failed. The surroundings looked normal but no game controls besides Pause worked, so I had to use Ctrl+Alt+Delete to end it all.

Were you in the map when it happened or in TZ?
I did some experimenting with Swamps and emissions at some point too, and being in TZ while caught in an emission always resulted in the kind of game hanging you describe above. (And i had followed the main mission properly at the time.) But while i was within the map borders, i died "normally".

Now I finished lowering the bridge to Limansk. On my PDA I have the reward from Clear Sky waiting for me in the HQ, but I didn't get the usual reward from the mercs, the dialog about Leishy's secret mission is missing and the merc guide don't take me anywhere.

Other guides in the game take me to various places, but not to the Swamps.

What you can do instead of talking to the Freedom Outpost Commander:

I did get the important artifacts and a few good weapons before returning to the Swamps. I also did the few side missions available that early on. Didn't buy all stashes though, this is my 5th or 6th playthrough so I've become lazy.

The guides and level changers still don't work inside the Swamps (except for that one time they let me out of the base and then into Cordon). This means that in order to upgrade the CS-1 suit (didn't have enough money before) I must take the whole way around the Swamp's Twiligt Zone on my way out, and maybe also on my way into the base. The suit cost me 22.500, BTW.

You should have talked to Sidorovich last.
Do all the Quest Item & Artifact hunting first.

Made it past the Army in Cordon, and was allowed to talk to Sidorovich this. He even gave me a main mission, finally!

From here on the game seems pretty normal, except that the Loner guards were still firing at Khaletskiy as long as he stayed behind bars (even while their leader was interrogating him).

Also I couldn't find the General (with the Flash drive) among the soldier victims, perhaps he was at the elevator and I didn't search properly.

getting in is easy enough from the TZ. But once you're in there then you'll be stuck 'cus the guides won't work. if there is another way out i'm not aware of it.

Success!

Got in and talked with Lebedev. Agreed to help him, but there's still no main mission in my PDA. I also asked Nimble about the tactical situation, and he replied that the war against the Renegades was won and the Swamps was like heaven now. Got money from the trader, and was able to buy a CS-1 suit.

Next I went to the guide, that actually took me to the Fishing Hamlet. From there I walked to the Southern Farmstead, where the guide took me to Cordon.

Instead of bothering with the machine gunner in southern Cordon, I went back to the Swamps and tried the northern exit to Cordon, but that one still didn't work so I guess one must deal with the Army. At this point I also noticed that Clear Sky's friendship had completely disappeared in my PDA and that they'd turn yellow again.
