Kristatos has made a deal to sell the ATAC (British missile guidance system) to the Russians. He has made a lot of enemies up to this point of the film.
Bond has to step in to prevent Melina Havlock (Bond's bit of fluff) from trying to kill Kristatos with her crossbow. It should be noted that Kristatos had her parents killed, so is quite rightly miffed.
As Bond is rationalising with Melina, Kristatos sneakily draws a knife from his shoe preparing to stab Bond. In the nick of time, a wounded Columbo appears and throws a knife into Kristatos' back before falling down too injured to do any more.
My favourite part has to be Bond giving the dying Kristatos an indifferent glance and continuing his conversation with Melina.
