The Republic of Adygea is not occupied by Ichkeria nor are there any Ichkerian troops on Adygean soil. The Franberrien government may find it useful to check facts before making an official statement in the future.

The Senate of the Grand Empire demands that the Chechnyan government stand down. The complete consent of the Adygean people and government was given to the Grand Empire prior to the passing of the Act of Annexation, as shown by popular Adygean newspapers welcoming the Stuyvesant government. Under the Act, the Adygean people are given more rights and freedoms than the former Maykop government.

We believe that, given the history of conflicts between the Adyghe and Chechens, a Cohenian controlled Adygea would be more beneficial to all parties. Should the Chechens prove that they are the true warmongering people they are and threaten the Cohenian government once again, a military task force will be sent to the area to make sure that the plans for annexation go through.

Thank you,

OFFICIAL COMMUNIQUE

CEASE AND DESIST:


>>On behalf of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeriya and the people of Adygeya the stance of this government towards the Cohenian Empire remains the same. As a response to imperialistic intentions and out of interests of national security, the CRI declares the entirety of the Black Sea to be off limits to all Cohenian vessels until further de-escalation or if the Soviet government raises any objections in addition to an embargo on all trade. Any attempt to enter the Black Sea will be met with force and may be taken as an act of war.
>>In response to questionable statements calling Ichkeriya an imperialist state, no armed action or invasion hereof will be taken in the Republic of Adygeya unless there is a substantial risk to regional stability. The Ichkeriyan government will continue talks with representatives of the Adygeyan government which we understand is in a state of turmoil.
>>The Chechen Republic flatly dismisses Franberrian claims of counter-stabilization attempts in Adygeya by Ichkeriyan agents. These claims are little more than uninformed insults and do nothing to promote relations between the two states of Ichkeriya and Franberry.

>>Finally the Ichkeriyan government sees no gain in destabilizing Adygeya; both our peoples of are the same ethnic gene pool and cultural set. Ichkeriyan policy is non-biased to any religion, race, or following and believes in the tenants of free-speech and democracy; unlike the Cohenian government which seeks to expel and banish the millions of Chechens living in Adygeya who make up a sizable, and highly integrated minority. Ichkeriya will defend herself and her kin from any act of faceless imperialism.


Signed:

Salambek N. Masayev
President

______________________________________________________________________


After having signed and made official his latest executive document, President Masayev began writing up a personal document to be sent to the Premier of the Soviet Bloc. He would ask that the Soviet would not intervene on the Cohenian side of the current crisis and would allow the Black Sea to be blockaded from all Cohenian vessels. It was highly ironic that two former arch enemy's within a generation's time ago were now on decent speaking terms. What was also ironic was that Ichkeriya, a Jewish-friendly state was facing the very real prospect of going to war with a Jewish state. Politics was politics it seemed.

Follwing this Salambek Masayev would issue an order to the Navy, ordering the mobilization of the Black Sea Fleet along with standby orders to the other fleets on duty. With the lightening fast escalation of potential conflict between the two states the media was in a flurry and the pundits were making hundreds of predictions, praising and bashing the president's determined foreign policy. The president's days would be filled with situation conferences with the top brass of the Navy, Air Force, Army, and Gendarmarie. Such conferences included intelligence breifings and breifings on the state of the Ichkeriyan military which had just completed its successful annexation of the thousands of islands that made the Liepan Archipelago. If war was what everything would amount to, which as time went by more and more were convinced was inevitable, Ichkeriya would be prepared to the best of ability. The memory of the war for Independance from the Soviets and the Kregaian invasion were still fresh in the minds of the populous and were a boon to government propaganda.

DENYING ADYGEA
user posted image
Common Chechnyan Foot Soldier
CHECHNYA DEMANDS THAT COHENIA LET ADYGEA FALL INTO THEIR HANDS

The Chechnyan government recently sent out a bulletin to the nations of the world to the Grand Empire regarding the recently annexed Republic of Adygea. The President of Chechnya claims that the "Chechen Republic" and the Cohenian citizens in Adygea that the stance towards Cohenia remains the same, yet it demands that Cohenia pull a Prestonia and back away from her expansion. Then the Chechen president proclaims a blockade of all Cohenian merchant and military vessels entering the isthmus to trade and interact with merchants and allies in the Armed Republic, and then Chechnya has the nerve to say that the Chechen Republic is not an imperialistic state at all. A state that refuses a nation her sovereign right to trade and to send convoys to her land is an imperialistic one in my book. Apparently, the Chechnyans wish to preserve Adygea as a sovereign state; yet the naiton has, with open arms, accepted the Cohenian request to integrate her into the Grand Empire.

You're telling me that the Chechen Republic is not an imperialist nation? On the contrary, it is the view of this newspaper that the Chechen Republic of Ichkeriya is one of the most imperialist nations in Haven, I don't think that even the Doomanis or Zukariaans would deny trade to a nation.

Chechnya has threatened the Grand Empire with war should she enter the "Black Sea" to land at the Republic of Adygea and at Maykop, where the Cohenian flag is already flying over the state building. Mr. Masayev, the Adyghe people have accepted Cohenian annexation. Mr. Masayev, the Adyghe people want to be Cohenian. If you cared so much for the Adyghe people, you would let them do as they wish.

The Chechen government has stated before that the lands of Adygea were "territorial claims" of Chechnya, therefore it is in my personal opinion that, should the Cohenian government chicken out and render the Adygea Act of 2009 moot, the Chechen government will swiftly invade Adygea and annex it for themselves. This newspaper fully endorses the Cohenian government and the will of the Adygean people.

Thank you,

Official Communique




Recipient: Grand Empire of Cohenia
Encryption: Translated into 176 languages. Additional languages available upon request. Assistance to those hard-of-seeing and hard-of-hearing available.

Sirs,

Your generous offering has been well received: President Dokhturov has issued his sincere gratitude at the gesture. Nonetheless, due to the gravity of the situation and the nature of the gift, we are obliged to accept provided the terms of the agreement be amended through the personal communication we have undertaken since this initial offer: the addition of one roll (or 10 35g cans) of snus (preferably Syv No. 7). Thus, with the arrival of the goods in question at President Dokhturov's private residence, we will commence a synchronized failure of our air defense systems to allow for the passage of Cohenian aerial assets over our airspace. The reports from our airborne air defense fighters will be summarily dismissed as hallucinations or unidentified flying objects (UFOs) and will be instructed to flee the area of operations or face disciplinary action for failing to follow orders.

Due to the limitations of this offer, we will only allow temporary passage for a limited time period. If additional excursions are requested, they will require additional gifts. For longer time periods, significantly more alcohol is expected and, in fact, encouraged by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. All notions of complicity by the Armed Republic government are to be denied by the Cohenian government. This message will summarily be stated to be a hoax after transmission and, as immediately mentioned before this, stated to be a hoax in the content of this message. However, this is not a hoax unless you are not the Cohenian government, in which case it is a hoax. We officially deny that any prior comments in this communique were official government policy on the behalf of the Armed Republic and obviously introduced into this rather benign communique by some third party intelligence service in order to implicate the Armed Republic into complicity in foreign affairs not directly related to the Armed Republic.

Regards,

Armed Republic Ministry of Foreign Affairs

Digorei, five miles north of Adygean-Ichkerian border...
Map
Amjad Yiven climbed into the cab of his 18-wheeler semi and began pulling out of the rest station after the diesel engine roared to life. As he pulled onto the highway an APC with North-West Ossetian markings passed him. This reminded his politically inept mind about the current state of affairs between his country and Adygea. Even for a man like him it was impossible not to have an oppinion; it was all over the news at every hour.

To his mind, he just hoped everything stayed quiet. The Ossetians may be a little odd in their ways and rude in comparison to his customs, but the Adygeh people were like distant cousins to his ethnic kin. Of course what mattered the most of all to him was that his trucking route would stay open. If Allah-forbid, there was war the border would be closed and he wouldn't get paid again until he could get another route to run. In the meantime however things weren't so bad. He had his favorite artist's latest country album playing and his new leather jacket...

..He wasn't wearing it. The thought was first an annoying pest until the realization of its importance etched its way ever deeper into his subconscious. A few eye glances around the cab; nothing. Of course he didn't put it in the back: he was wearing it when he left the diner where he got breakfast... oh what an idiot! he thought to himself. Amjad stroked his moustache as he thought. He had a few hours to make the run and time was short as it was, but he was sure he could make the turn at the next U-turn... he just missed the last one before the border. Well it's only five miles to back to the diner, he'd just make a turn and go back into North West Ossetia.

There was a marked difference from the day before when Amjad passed through the border to Adygea from the same highway. The difference was the amount of troops and Gendarme present. There were a number of military Jeeps and a few APCs on the sides of the road. The clear road quickly turned into heavy traffic waiting to be let across one car at a time. They were checking ID and some cars were being turned back. Amjad was a little nervous but they were his countrymen, and they were known to bend the rules a little for a fellowman or a few extra nakhars.

An Ichkerian Gendarme wielding the Army's Sa14A2 (official designation T14A2) stepped into the middle of the road and held out his hand for Amjad to stop. Another stepped up to the side of the cab.

"Selam Aleykum. Papers and identification please. Step out of the cab if you will." he said.

"Of course." Amjad replied. He reached into the glove compartment to get his papers and stepped out of the semi.

"Here you go."

The Gendarme inspected the papers briefly and with a look of bias on his face. More than likely his superior made sure he understood that all was not well in current state of affairs. Amjad, of course, noticed none of this, his mind still back at his stool in the diner. "Hey, um I left something important back in Digorei, I'm just going to make a U-turn here because I missed the last one."

The Gendarme looked back up at him and gave him his papers back. "What did you leave behind?" He asked sharply.

"Oh, just a jacket of mine at a diner. Just noticed on the road you see."

"No." he replied.

Amjad was taken aback when the young man answered him like he did. "Listen it's embarrassing but I just bought it yesterday in Ilkhan."

"Then you can buy another one there. The border is closed except for Ichkerians going out and Adygeans going back in."

Amjad was besides himself. They closed the border over night. "But this is my livelihood! How am I going to make any money if I can't go to Adygea?

The Gendarme became noticeably impatient as the line of cars and trucks behind Amjad's semi grew longer and longer.

"It's not up to me brother." he replied. Gripping his rifle and fidgeting it slightly enough to make its presence remembered he added: "Get back in the truck, please."




Amjad stuffed his papers into his pocket and climbed back into the cab. He began a loud political rant that would last him the next half an hour. That was an expensive jacket.

* * * * * * *

Private Ortsu Makhalle watched on bemusedly as the angry trucker drove off. Aside from a few who tried (and failed) to run the border, and the occasional hysterical relative who claimed to have family on the other side (but had no documents) it was a very boring day otherwise. Yet there was a tension in the air that the rookies hadn't experienced yet. The feeling that just maybe, real bullets would fly against real targets. All the guys showed their own way of dealing with being antsy. Some fidgeted more, others proclaimed how much they wanted to go to war with macho smiles on their faces. Ortsu, personally, couldn't wait for the political bitching to come to a head. The Cohenians said they were annexing Adygea...well? As far as he was concerned Adygea was more an unruly province of Ichkeriya where it rightly belonged than the foreign holding of some power thousands of miles away. If it came to war - and he already had the paperwork ready - he'd apply to transfer immediately into the Army so he could be sent to the front lines. The older generations always either bragged or gave warnings about war and their exploits and near-death claims to fame. His so far had none of that, except for the Marines which he despised as sailors. After the Liepan was taken those in the Marines and the Rangers were able to brag about a successful conquest while the Army was left watching it all on TV. No, there had to be war. Adygea was a part of Ichkeriya after all. They were the same ethnic kin. There had to be war.

* * * * * * *


Back in the capital Solzha, the decision was approved in Congress 221 - 35 to close the border with Adygea and its AR, North West Ossetia. With the Maykop government in Adygea officially opposing the Ichkerian held position and advocating for itself to be annexed into the Cohenian Empire (something which was greatly opposed by the body of the Ichkerian legislature) the vote was put to the floor on whether or not power, gas, and oil pipelines into Adygea should be shut off in an effort to put strain on the Maykop government since it had clearly chosen its sides. In the main chamber of the Senate the argument was made by a senator that due to its history of being invaded time and again by foreign powers, Ichkeria would allow one of it kin to exist freely, but would not allow it to be a direct subject of a foreign land. This speech was met with cheers and applause which filled the grand hall in sound.

Soon after the matter also as put to vote. In a short time the result was announced by the speaker Jamal Hamidzhe, an ethnic Georgian, with 89 percent in favor, 9 percent against, and 2 percent abstaining. Approved by the President, Salambek Masayev, it became one of the fastest enacted decisions by Congress.

The same day Gas and Oil giants Orkhan Gas Co. and Irkhhdätt along with two power companies with contracts in Adygea were issued an order to halt all sale of gas, oil, and power to Adygea, with temporary compensation paid by the government.

With Ichkeria as its sole neighbor and given its size, Adygea is dependent on it for some resources. Given the recent developments it would be very hard pressed for heating, petrol, and power now that its number one suppliers would be suspending all further sales. With no alternate land routes and no pipelines built along the treacherous bed of the Black Sea, the ruling Maykop government would be forced into instituting rolling blackouts and rationing of heating gas and petrol to compensate.

Ichkeria had maintained itself as a non-aggressive player in politics but all inside had seen where that had gotten it. It's diplomat's rhetoric would remain on the side of defensive minded non-belligerent although the acquisition of Adygea had long been a goal. An invasion at this point was still considered too far and too aggressive a step. Instead the Republic would play its cards, nudging Adygea further and further towards the brink. This gave it time to prepare for the future. Preparations for possible naval engagements with the Cohenians, an invasion of Adygea had been on the books for ages, theater air doctrine, occupation and integration were all already agreed upon or close to being finalized. Squadrons from the Black Sea Fleet were already on station patrolling the straits and other groups of vessels including air craft carriers made slow, deliberate laps around Adygea, just off its territorial waters, and sometimes just inside, periodically antagonizing ships.

In the mean time the branches of the Army, Rangers, and Marines were put on higher alert. Divisions were being mobilized and transferred to bases in the north. It wasn't too obvious of an invasion, but definitely a notable response to increasing political tension. Time would tell how all would play out. The Adygean government wouldn't be allowed to simply insult the Ichkerian government without recourse.

"Mr. Prime Minister..." an aide came rushing into Federov's office, holding a large, overstuffed file folder bounded by rubber bands. Federov gestured for an additional minute, as he was on the phone with his friend Mr. Vauntroy, but the aide mouthed that what he had to discuss was urgent.

"I'll talk to you later, Jefferson." He placed the phone back in its cradle, then looked at the aide. "I was in the middle of a very important phone call, Dmitry. What is so urgent that I had to hang up on the phone?"

"It is the situation in Adygea, sir." He placed the folder down on an ornate wooden desk at one corner of the prime minister's office. The Prime Minister gestured for the aide to go on. "Intelligence tells us that the second any military craft lands in Adygea, the Muslims will declare war. They have shut off all pipelines and power going into Adygea and they are on their reserves there, and they claim that the strait between Adygea and our comrades in the Armed Republic..."

"We are sending them the dip and alcohol, right?"

"...yes, sir."

"Double the 'fee' and send it every day we're using their air space." The aide scribbled something down, and nodded. "Go on."

"They claim that the strait between Adygea and the Armed Republic is unbearable for any pipeline to go through and deliver supplies. Intelligence also says that they want to starve Maykop into submission for the residents to change their mind, changing their desires to be annexed to the Muslims."

"Typical Muslims."

"Mr. Prime Minister, the Parliament and Senate want to know what we're to do..."

"The simplest thing to do, really." What Federov had in mind, of course, was already discussed at a meeting between the Cabinet and His Majesty. In conjuction with the State Department, War Department, and the Legislature, the Federov-Popinski plan was designed to create an airlift into Adygea through the cleared Armed Republican airspace. Everything would appear to be civilian only, much needed supplies would get into Adygea as well as rifles and ammunition in other crates. The "civilians" would be soldiers dressed as well-to-do volunteers, bringing food and petrol. Stashed away would be SAMs, anti-air guns, anti-personnel weaponry, anti-vehicle weaponry, and other various weapons that could be assembled on site. If the Muslims shot at these civillian planes and downed them, then clearly the Cohenians could show the world the aggression of the Muslim and how the cargo planes were being sent to defend Adygea from the Muslim stranglehold. And of course, if they didn't, the province would be armed before the Cohenians sent the bigger weapons.

"I shall tell the Legislature that we are working with the State and War Departments and all information is confidential, if you really need to know." And in a brief speech to a crowded Parliament chamber, Andrey Federov told the MPs just that. And with a seemingly perfect timing, the Adygea Airlift started as Federov closed his statement. Hundreds of thousands of tons of supplies were scheduled to go to Adygea in a short period of time, the province was to be prepared for war should it occur.

The fighters and bombers of the Imperial Cohenian Air Force were also being prepped simultaneously, just in case the Muslims tried to pull any funny stuff. The cargo planes were being sent in unescorted, in a further effort to convince that the planes were a part of the Cohenians for Adygea volunteer effort or something of the like.

April 26th, Skies above the Cherkess Straights, 12 kilometers off northern Adygea..

Two Navy I-22 Korsär interceptors were on patrol 50,000 ft above sea level. Their frames glinted star-white in the intense sunlight and contrasted beautifully to the dark blue backdrop of the sky at this altitude. From their position, the pilots and RIO's could see well into Adygea to the south, and into the Soviet Bloc to the north. Their job was to prevent any unauthorized flights into Adygea, namely any Cohenian government or military aircraft. Of course, current ROE stated that they needed express permission from command to fire on any aircraft unless fired upon.

From his cockpit, Lt. Garoz comfortably monitored his instruments and enjoyed the view.

"Just another boring day Hook. There's nothing except for normal airline traffic." his RIO said to him over the radio. Garoz cracked his neck to the side about to respond before the comm-channel opened up.

"Starsky to Ghost Rider, come in." came the voice of the AWACS radio operator.

"This is Ghost Rider One, Go Ahead Starsky."

"Uh Vector course to zero-nine-zero, altitude five thousand meters. Multiple unknown bogeys sited copy."

In an instant Garoz's eyes widened in interest. "Copy that Starsky. Moving to intercept."

With a word to his wing man, Lt. Garoz, or Hook as was his call-sign, banked his plane to the left. The two planes set off on an intercept course with the unidentified Cohenian planes. Radar returns reported several large aircraft flying together. The two planes, after attempting to make radio contact and discovering the lack of fighter escorts, came diving out of the sky towards the group of cargo aircraft. The two pilots aimed their noses down and made hundreds of micro adjustments aided by their aircraft's avionics, sending their planes hurtling through the formation of aircraft like meteors.

Licensed commercial flights into and out of the country were common knowledge and any bit of information this important would have been gathered already by Ichkerian intelligence services. Commercial planes had to fly along set routes and carry frequency emitters set to certain bands so that the Aviation Agencies of different countries could track, communicate, and manage inbound and outbound flights. These planes seemed different: off of normal schedules and not flying according to set civilian time tables, they immediately aroused interest.

The interceptors climbed back up to be level with the cargo planes. Words were exchanged between the pilots and command and then with the pilots giving warnings to the pilots of the Cohenian cargo planes.

However the Ichkerian fighter pilots had no authorization to fire on the cargo planes. At the least they would tail the cargo planes until they reached Adygean airspace, and maybe antagonize them a little bit.

It was when they were flying 60 feet off the side of one of the cargo planes that Hook's RIO made an observation, "Hey Hook... I smell bullshit man."

Hook rolled his eyes and replied over the comm. "Yeah How's that?"

Dexter seemed eager to explain. "Well we have all civilian flights into and out of Adygea on the books right? And how come there're no seats inside the windows? Hell I don't even think that's a real airline for Christ's sake!" (Dexter was Greek Orthodox. Lt. Garoz was Jewish)

Suddenly it hit Hook like a brick.

"What do you think?"

"We gotta tell command this." Hook replied. He got on the horn with the AWACS radio operator "Ghost Rider One to Starsky come in... Be advised, we have reason to believe the bogeys flying Cohenian civilian markings are not civilian transports and may instead be hiding something."

There was a pause before the AWACS radio operator replied. "Copy that Ghost Rider One. Tag the bogeys and RTB.[i]"

"[i]Roger That Starsky. Ghost Rider Out.
"

Tag was slang for taking pictures. The I-22 Korsär had the ability to be equipped with cameras, but those upgrades hadn't been undertaken on either of the two planes in the sky. Instead, Hook's RIO took out a digital camera of his and start snapping pictures left and right at the Cohenian planes and their markings. With only a few kilometers of international airspace to go, Hook and his wingman in the other Korsär decided it'd be a good idea to bid the Cohenians farewell. Pulling out of formation with the large cargo planes, the two maneuvered their Korsärs underneath the belly of the lead plane and took positions directly infront of it to the right and left, just infront of the engines. What the Cohenian pilots would have seen would be two pairs of engines rise up infront of them and glow red, then orange, then white hot as the fighter pilots pushed their engines into full burn, dumping all their hot exhaust gases directly infront of the cargo plane's engines before dipping their wings in salute and flying away... if something happened and the cargo plane's engines decided to quite... well then that'd just be put down as an unfortunate accident.

========================

The idea that the Cohenian planes were smuggling something in became increasingly obvious as further reports of the massive airlift flooded through. Spy satellites in orbit snapped up high resolution pictures of the planes after they had been tracked to landing, and were set on courses to take pictures of the offloading sites as they flew overhead.

Military analysts and other politicians and brass would would quickly come into agreement. The airlift operations of the Cohenians were too good of an opportunity for them not to be smuggling weapons and personnel into the country. It wouldn't be long before intelligence analysts working for the the intelligence agencies would notice that considerably less bodies were taking the Cohenian cargo flights back home than were arriving. All this seemed ominous, and with the current state of affairs it wasn't a far cry to imagine some sort of underhanded build up being undertaken. Additionally the fact that the State Department's official statement's lack of wording pertaining to the air became painfully evident.

In response to this, President Masayev wanted most to blow the Cohenian planes out of the sky for their insult and their obvious testing of Ichkerian patience. However, he realized, more time would allow his forces to better organize for possible conflict. So first he had the following written up and sent to the Cohenian Empire.

====================

Chechen Republic of Ichkeriya
From the Office of the President

OFFICIAL COMMUNIQUE

[b]To Prime Minster Federov:


>>You're government's uncaring testing of Ichkerian patience through airlifts comes to be seen as a severe threat to the national security of Ichkeriya. This is your final warning to stop meddling with issues of Ichkerian security and interests. Any further aggressive action will be seen as a direct provocation.


Signed:

Salambek N. Masayev
President

======================

Meanwhile, another letter was drafted and sent to the Soviets up north. This one was ensured to be secret.

SIC:

To the Soviet Bloc:

>>Good Day. Cohenian meddling has prompted a national security crisis in Ichkieria which may end up reaching beyond borders. They really have no business trying to annex more land, even just to your south and I am aware you would probably not wish your government to have to get in the middle of this, literally. Therefore it would be seen as a great help if your government decided to close it's airspace, indefinitely, to all Cohenian air traffic inbound for Adygea.

We realize this may be much to ask given our tense history. Therefore I beleive it would be of interest for you to know that as your read this message, a train laden with all sorts of liquor; from Georgian wines to some of our northern Vodka, has 'accidentally' taken the wrong turn into your country. The apprehension of this train's cargo by Soviet officials will be taken as an accepting of the terms put forth. And further loads of trains carrying such goods will 'mistakenly' end up in Soviet cargo depots for the duration of the deal.

Signed:

Salambek N. Masayev
President

==================================

Finally late at night a few highly encrypted emails, only decipherable through a certain computer program, where sent to sleeper agents living within Adygea. There mission among other things would range from general espionage to acquiring photographic evidence of the Cohenian underhandedness.

CHECHENS BLAMED FOR LOSS OF EIGHT, NATION MOURNS

The C-37 Worldtrekker plane crashed during an emergency landing caused by an engine failure
Federov demands Chechens cease, publicizes threat from Chechen President

"...Any further aggressive action will be seen as a direct provocation." The final line in the threat that came in earlier today from the President of Chechnya a few hours after the C-37 Worldtrekker cargo aircraft carrying much needed foodstuffs and fuel for starved Cohenians abroad in the province of Adygea. On the recovered blackbox, Commander Ivan Nijinsko of the C-37 Worldtrekker The Pride of Talonsco stated that "Chechen fighters have intercepted us" and was reported to the Muslims that they were on a "humanitarian mission to deliver aid to Adygea, when Muslim fighters flew in front of the aircraft's engines and "empty exhaust gases." Analysts report that the aircraft's engines failed after the exhaust gases entered them, causing the plane to stall. Nijinsko was unable to get control of the plane, however, and failed in his attempt to glide it to safety. All crew aboard were killed.

"This is an outrage!" Prime Minister Federov screamed in a televised speech in front of Parliament. "I received notice from Salambek Masayev that our 'government's uncaring testing of Ichkerian patience through airlifts comes to be seen as a severe threat to the national security of Ichkeriya', when they are the ones that stopped the flow of all resources into Adygea to let it starve! He stated that this was his final warning to the Cohenian Empire, and his military killed the lives of eight valient men from Talonia today. I spoke on the phone with Mrs. Nijinskova today and assured her that her husband was a brave pilot and a valiant Cohenian, and Mr. Popinski will be traveling to Talonsco later today to award posthumous medals to the widows. The Muslim government has, so far, created eight widows and thirty children without fathers. In an effort of peace to bring resources to Adygeans, we have been accused of being warmongers. By bringing food and fuel to Maykop and the surrouding area, we are imperialists. Well, let it be known to Mr. Masayev and his government that Cohenia will continue bringing supplies to Adygea!" The crowd cheered. "We will not bow at Muslim terrorism!" Louder. "In fact, let Mr. Masayev know that the Imperial Cohenian Air Force shall begin its own airlift of supplies into Adygea!" Louder. "We will never surrender!" A standing ovation by all Members of Parliament and Senators.

In response to the recent terrorism, Cohenians at home and abroad were reawkwned with a new sense of national pride. Chechen flags were burned as men signed up to join the Imperial Cohenian Air Force to assist their brothers in Adygea with the airlift. Flags, both Cohenian and Adygean, went up from Praha to Port Rosbanin to Hamitlon to Stuyvesant to Dayan to Sofiya to Reval. Farmers were sending more crops to the effort, factories were sending surplus goods to the effort, everyone was doing whatever they could to show the Muslims that Cohenia was not afraid of them.

"It's clear to me," Ivanca Saponova, a school teacher from East Sorison, "that they want Cohenia to surrender. My husband was a part of the airlift, and a lot of my student's fathers and uncles were as well. We all think that this is terrible and we all think that justice needs to be served."

Outside of Hamilton, we met up with Sergey Antonev in front of an army recruiting office. "I'm joining because I want my people to be safe, I don't know. It's a pride issue," coming after the War Department and Legislature approved Cohenian soldiers to make sure that the airlift was going according to plan.

For more stories of Cohenian reaction to the 4/26 Chechen attack on the Pride of Talonsco, please visit www.stuytimes.coh/pages/nation/attackreactions.html

~~~

With the much needed popularity boost from the attack, Cohenian cargo aircraft flooded the air routes landing their supplies at the few airports in Adygea. Personnel that had already landed were in the process of building other landing strips for quick unloading, refueling, and exiting to return to the mainland to refill. Fighters also had come along this time, both to escort the cargo aircraft and to also land at their new airbases in Adygea. Soldiers were too being unloaded from the cargo aircraft and being moved to the border, where it was feared that the Chechens would pull something silly. If anything happened, they were not in the best situation to survive an attack but they had time to slow it for the bombers from the mainland to arrive. Federov had hoped that his allies were watching the situation, as well - just in case the Muslims decided to do what they did best.

Adygean Blockade expanded to the Air
user posted image
Photo: Two I-22 Korsär naval interceptors like those used on patrol.


President Masayev announced earlier yesterday an expansion of the naval blockade barring Cohenian vessels into Adygea to include aircraft. The move comes after accusations by the State Department that the Cohenian Empire has been using its hereto alleged 'Humanitarian' aid mission in Adygea to transport soldiers and arms into the area in preparation for conflict.

The initial blockade came as a response to the de jure annexation of the Republic of Adygea by the Cohenian Empire. President Maseyev, backed unanimously by Congress, has vehemently opposed the move from the start citing ethnic ties, proximity to the fatherland, and the two republics' shared history as reasons why Adygea should either remain independent or merge with Ichkeria. Although President Masayev has faced criticism within Ichkeria and mostly by Cohenian state run news agencies for being imperialistic, he has maintained the annexation of Adygea as proof of Cohenian imperialism.

During a press conference where he answered questions about the brewing crisis he was quoted as saying, "Why do they [the Cohenians] need Adygea? What strategic advantage does it give them besides a base to attack the fatherland?" He later went on to say, "The Adyge, the Cherkess, they are our people. Our people live in their land theirs live in ours."

The president later continued on the topic of race and discriminatory issues at the conferences saying that the Cohenians have proven themselves to be both "racist" and "underhanded" in a reference to both the Cohenian policy of evicting all ethnic Chechens from Adygea and Cohenian PM Fedorov's emotion filled tirade against him earlier this week.

In response questions regarding the downing of a Cohenian cargo plane on Apirl 26th President Masayev commented, "No Ichkerian aircraft fired any weapons in the incident and so there was no 'attack' as Minster Federov insists. The failure was more likely the result of faulty Cohenian engineering. It was a publicity stunt to blame us for their attempt to put troops on Adygean soil." Additionally he mentioned a Minstry of Defense report which confirmed the allegation of arms and soldier smuggling into Adygea by the Cohenian Empire.

Questions as to whether or not Ichkeria would be ready if an escalated conflict would arise were answered by Army Cheif Mikhail Khamalov who said concisely: "If it comes to any level of war, Ichkeria is more than prepared."


-IchkerianBroadcastingCompany News

-------------

With the blockade on Adygea expanded to the air, Ichkerian aircraft and ships were given permission to shoot down any confirmed Cohenian planes or formations that did not turn back after one warning. Another order was sent out by the Defense Ministry telling commanders and pilots that if any Cohenian aircraft fired upon anything with an Ichkerian insignia, all forces would be able to engage without giving warning. So far, Ichkerian pilots were not allowed to pursue targets into Adygea unless fired upon, in which case all air targets plus others so-designated would be fair game.

In addition to the naval air arm stepping up the ante, the Air Force had already begun warming itself up with additional mock sorties and reconnaissance flights which were scheduled to commence currently. The Army was also gearing up for a fight. Several divisions including one of Rangers were prepping for an offensive with two regiments which could be flown in immedietly (Rangers were the land/air shock troops of the military). A Marine division hundreds of kilometers to the south west near the shore-town of Firannir was also given orders to prepare to for departure.

Federov to Masayev: "Airlift will continue"
user posted image
"Cohenia will not give in to Muslim terrorist threats"

"If they want Adygeans to be free or whatever, why are they advocating the starvation of the state?" asked Pasha Strombec, a businessman in Hamilton. "Doesn't make much sense to me."

"To me, it doesn't make much sense." Ivana Milisova, a store manager also in Hamilton. "Obviously they want Adygea to be their own, yet they advocate taking away all supplies from them? Not good PR if you ask me."

Around the nation, the colonies, the region, and the world, everyone is confused as to why Ichkeria keeps blockading Adygea. They announced earlier that the blockade is to be expanded to stop all air traffic going into Adygea from Cohenia, stating that they will shoot down any Cohenian aircraft.

"Why can't the Muslims take a hint and realize that Adygeans don't like them? I mean, Tyrandisans and Shansekians are 'ethnic brothers' as well and they hate each other. A lot," says Dmitri Mostonin, a student at the University of Stuyvesant.

"Accusing the Stuyvesant Times, a newspaper that has been around since the late 1700s and remained independent even during Communist times, as being 'state run'...All I have to say is wow." Alecsander Yostocov, a high school student from PS118 in Dayan.

In a press conference after the expansion of the Adygean blockade, Mr. Andrey Federov announced to Adygea that "the airlift will continue, despite terrorist threats to stop it."

"Cohenia is not a nation that bows to terrorist threats, and the fact that the Chechens continue to make them says something of their character. By using militaristic, terrorist threats, it is clear that the Chechens want nothing but war and the annexation of Adygea for themselves. In local referendums, Adygeans have shown an overwhelming pro-Cohenian sentiment over the Muslims. Perhaps it relates to nearly one thousand years ago when Cohenian and Doomani Christians liberated Adygea from the Muslims, perhaps it relates to the fact that the Muslims are clearly imperialist warmongers, I don't know. Cohenia will never give into Muslim terrorist threats, not today, not tomorrow, not next week, not ever. The airlift will continue as scheduled, if the Muslims want to show their true nature and shoot down civilians, foodstuffs, and soldiers; let them be my guest. Cohenians see Adygeans as our brothers, religiously and historically. The Cohenians and the Adygeans see the Muslims as the warmongering people they naturally are. We have intelligence that states that the Muslims are preparing for a land invasion of Adygea, massing large amounts of troops on the border and strengthing their air forces and naval air forces to destroy all Cohenians in the region and annex Adygea for itself. In response to this, I am elevating our defense readiness to level two. It is clear that the Chechens want a war, and it is clear that the Chechens want Adygea.

"In response to 'faulty Cohenian engineering', those planes were actually purchased from Chevrokia. And from examining the remains and black box, it is clear that two Chechen aircraft flew in front of the plane's engines and released all exhaust gases into the plane's engines."

---

By the announcement of the air blockade, there were probably enough supplies and foodstuffs to keep the Adygeans fed and the soldiers hungry for a while. Somehow, the Cohenians managed to lift in and assemble armored fighting vehicles into Adygea and had them placed on the border. Another air wing had based itself in Adygea, and the 203rd Bomber Wing was also based at Adygea.

Stranglehold sparks anti-Chechen rally in Maykop
user posted image

Today marks the third day of an anti-Chechen rally in Maykop, the capital of Adygea, and the recent lockdown of Adygean airspace has only given more fuel to the demonstration. The situation in Adygea, which started when Ichkeriya began making noises that it wanted to annex Adygea, leading to former President Girei Saboço to hold a referendum on annexation by Cohenia, has only intensified, and threatens to turn to war.

"Do they expect us to bow down now, after this?" asked a demonstrator, taking a break from waving a massive Adygean flag, referring to the blockade. "Fah! We will not just knuckle under and crawl!"

"Sure," said another. "I'd like to be independent as much as anyone. But the thing is that [President] Girei just had too much to do—he couldn't get us back on track after Bacherikov. That's why we asked for help."

We were hard-pressed to find any pro-Chechen protesters.

President Girei Saboço's location is currently unknown, but it is rumoured that he may have exiled himself to Franberry.

Official Message from the Federal Republic of Franberry


The Federal Republic of Franberry petitions that Ichkeria end its blockade in clear violation of international air and water travel channels. Ichkeria has no valid or justified terms on which to take this action, and do it for no other purpose than to eventually invade Adygea, cleanse the majority of the population, and seize the land. The unjustified and disgusting clear aggression to Cohenia, that cost 8 young lives, is sickening and in itself a clear provocation from Ichkeria. The Federal Republic of Franberry would also like to take the opportunity to deny claims that ex-Adygean head of state Girei Saboço is hiding within Franberry.

------

A careful, observant, person would have noted an increase in sea-borne traffic towards the north-east of Haven departing from Franberrian ports, particularly an increased and highly odd number of ships making port and departing from Rio Negro.

Maykop, Adygea
Segmentum Ultimus
12143.C21 Anno Domini (April 26th, 2043 Doomani Calendar)
1345 Local


Brother Sacrus Carminus set down his copy of the Doomani Bible as the airliner made contact with the runway below. They had arrived in Adygea, site of a new Crusade against Islamic incursions unto sacred Christian lands. While it was true the Adygeans were schismatics, as the Doomani referred to the followers of Cohenian Orthodox Christianity, they were, none the less, followers of Christ, and therefore cousins of the Catholics who had come to aid them. None of Sacrus' battle-brothers had any qualms about aiding Orthodox Christians: they were, after all, volunteers. They would not stand idly by while percieved Chechen Islamic imperialism threatened fellow Christians: good, hard-working people who wanted only to be left in peace.

With the infidel, peace was impossible, as Carminus knew all too well. He'd fought in Azaha to purge it of Islamic extremism as part of a Vesec kill team. That war was over, yet his mission in life was not. He'd joined the Order after his wife's untimely death, abandoning his Earthly possessions to become a full-fledged Manus Dei battle-brother, and he had been embraced amongst his new family. It was much like his time in the Exercitus, where to train for war was prayer, to maintain one's rifle an act of worship. Here he found the spiritualism that his brother Legionarii had possessed applied to men who had served in the innumerable Imperial Guard, who, like him, had found their calling to be the dedication of their lives to Holy Crusade, the protection of Christ's Earthly Realm against the unbeliever. There were even those brothers that had been raised into the Order from childhood: they were some of the most dogmatic, puritanical human beings Sacrus had ever encountered. For a Doomani, that was certainly saying something.

On this expedition, however, a good portion of the force was made up of the Volontes, the most basic of the Order's forces: reservist half-brothers (meaning that they had families and property and lived amongst society) that could volunteer for any crusade they wished so long as they paid their dues and attended the stringent, mandatory training held every weekend by their Chapter. These men were all seasoned veterans of the Imperial Guard, most of whom had been blooded on Paralentum fighting the Questarians in one of the most gruesome wars in recent Havenic history. Sacrus was one of the Milites, full battle-brothers dedicated entirely to Order and Chapter, and the Order and Chapter in turn took care of him, providing him with all he needed.

Sacrus smiled and nodded and the pretty blonde flight attendant as she took his wine glass from him. Aer Imperia always made sure to exclude flight attendant jobs only to the most attractive females, something some of Sacrus' more puritanical brothers may have found immoral, though he liked it well enough. He crossed himself as he stood from his seat, nudging the slumbering Brother Varus, seated next to him, awake.

They were not even disguised. All were fully uniformed in digiflec-pattern fatigues with Manus Dei insignia adorning their choker collars and right shoulder, with the banner of their Chapter adorning the left shoulder. They marched neatly down the roll-up steps of the aircraft with their carry-on bags slung over their shoulders to waiting flat bed trucks that would take them to their assembly areas where they'd pick up the rest of their baggage, which included their weapons. Manus Dei appeared extremely well-organized despite the quickness that their operation in Adygea had been thrown together. Volunteer Milites and Volontes from over fourty Chapters had been combined into a single Crusade Front of three-thousand men, who would be deployed as irregulars against an invading Chechen army. They had brought with them mortars, machineguns, anti-tank missiles, hand-held surface to air missiles, even lightweight UAVs, and enough mines of various types (including brand new anti-helicopter mines) to make it a problem for Adygeans three generations down the line.

While there was no obvious Doomani government involvement, Sacrus knew that it had not been the Order that had shipped nearly a hundred thousand ACOMs and tens of thousands of new generation rocket propelled grenades into the country thus far; from what he understood, more were still coming. If it wasn't the Emperor's government, he didn't know who it was that was arming the Adygeans in such a vast quantity. Someone also seemed to be teaching the Adygeans how to work the new smart anti-tank, anti-helicopter, and anti-personnel mines.

The word soon came down that Sacrus and his band of men were to be deployed near the border, their orders being to begin planting mines on suspected invasion and infiltration routes and setting up hidden weapons caches in the wildnerness and inside various villages as well as to begin cultivating relationships with the locals in order to better facilitate a guerilla war. If the Chechens did invade, they would indeed encounter resistance...

On the south-east border are high, rough mountains; south-west border beyond Sochi and Nalchik are mountains and hills; foothills in the middle; floodplain of the Kuban river/coastal climate on what's left. Tkarqivali is the capital of NW Ossetia, and Cherkessk is the capital of the Balkar Republic. There is a major gorge just north-east of Molkino, the Darial Gorge, and is the location of the Darial Training Ground. Krasnodar and Maykop have the major international airports, while Novorossiysk, Sochi, Tkarqivali and Armavir have regional airports. Of interest may be that Sochi is a resort city.

Coastal missile batteries are in Anapa (Redut, related to Sepal/Shaddock) and Tuapse (Termit). Novorossiysk is the home port of the Adygean Navy (missile boats Maykop and Krasnodar) and the 1st Patrol Group of various patrol boats (5), ASW corvettes (3) and one MCV. Sochi is the port of the 2nd Patrol Group (4 patrol boats, 1 MCV).

The Adygean Air Force is based in Adygeysk (959th Bomber Aviation Regiment - Su-24, L-39C), Krymsk (562nd Fighter Aviation Regiment - Su-27), Slavyansk (960th Fighter Aviation Regiment - MiG-29), Krasnodar (461st Shturmovik Aviation Regiment - Su-25; Krasnodar Military Aviation Institute, 797th Training Aviation Regiment - Su-27, MiG-29, Su-25, L-39), and Armavir (Armavir Military Aviation Institute - L-39).

The Adygean Army and 67th Army Corps' headquarters are in Maykop, and the 131st Motor Rifle Brigade is based around Maykop. The 1st Guards Surface-to-Surface Missile Brigade (OTR-21 Tochka), the 35th Separate Radio-Technical Regiment, and the 91st Separate Communications Regiment are based around Krasnodar. Various other units subordinate to the 67th are located around the Maykop-Krasnodar area.

The 58th Combined Arms Army is currently based in Tkarqivali, and is the larger of the two above-corps formations (the other being the 67th Army Corps). Of note is the 19th 'Voronezh-Wumlinskaya' Motor Rifle Division, containing the 429th 'Kuban Cossacks' Motor Rifle Regiment (T-72, MT-LB, BM-27 Uragan) in Beslan, the 503rd Motor Rifle Regiment (T-72, BTR-80) in Tkarqivali, the 696th Motor Rifle Regiment (T-72, BMP-2, 2S3 Akatsiya) in Tkarqivali, the 292nd SP Artillery Regiment (2S19 Msta-S, BM-21 Grad), the 481st Anti-aircraft Missile Regiment (9K33 Osa), and the 141st Separate Tank Regiment (T-72). Also note the 22nd Separate Electronic Warfare Regiment in Tkarqivali and 10th Special Designation (Spetsnaz) Brigade in Goryachiy Klyuch (not marked, but just north-west of Adygeysk).

Independent of both these formations are the 10th (Mountain) Separate Brigade in Molkino, the 179th Anti-Aircraft Missile Brigade in Adygeysk, and the 431st Naval Special Designation Regiment (Spetsnaz) in Tuapse.

The Army uses the T-72, 2A65 Msta-B 152mm towed howitzer, M1938 (M-30) 122 mm towed howitzer, 2A18 (D-30) 122 mm towed howitzer, PM-38 50 mm mortar, BM-21 Grad, BM-27 Uragan, T-12 100 mm AT gun, 9K33 Osa, Mi-8, Mi-9 (Mi-8IV), Mi-24, Mi-26, An-2, BMP-1, BMP-2, BTR-70, MT-LB, 2S3 Akatsiya 152 mm SPH, and the 2S5 Giatsint-S 152 mm SPH.

There are two ODON units and one independent OBRON unit in the Internal Security Ministry, but they only use the BMP-2, among other police vehicles.

A flurry of activity enveloped the Imperial Hall as Conrad strode from his armored limousine and up the steps of the ornate building. It was raining lightly, so Conrad wrapped a large cape around his back as he went. Inside the Imperial Hall, people had failed to complete preparations for the Emperor’s arrival. He was not one to be bothered by this, but the event of concern bit at his conscious especially strongly.

He took his journey through the buzzing and surprised building until he stepped through two great oak doors and into the giant semi-circle of platform seating, which made up the Senate. However, this time when Conrad entered the Senate no Senators waited for him. All was empty but for three men sitting around Conrad’s desk.

Hail, Sire!” and “Your majesty, it is good of you to join us!

Yes, yes. Damn the formalities, this could be very important in the restoration of our alliance with my cousin,” Conrad said, faintly showing signs of anguish even now at the thought of having been abandoned, as a ruler, by his cousin Mikhail.

Castor von Kasierburg, the head of the People’s Order of Protection Intelligence Division (POOPID), the intelligence agency of the Zukariaan Empire, sighed deeply. He refrained from informing the Emperor, once again, that Mikhail II was a figurehead, like most of the monarchs in Haven now were. In the past few months when this was said, Conrad dismissed it as balderdash. “Madness!” he would exclaim, “My relatives throughout Haven are destined to rule the world!

Pime Taradox, part-time Foreign Minister extraordinaire, broke in, “The Chechen government has refused to lift its blockade, sire, and has in fact expanded it to the air. Federov has stated that the Cohenian airlift into Adygea will not end. It looks as if the two are on the brink of war. If I may give you my personal opinion, sire, I say we send our boys in and crush the goddamned ragheads! We’ll show Federov that we’re still a loyal friend, even when they’ve turned on us. As you have said, the Cohenian people will always be considered our brothers.

Defense Minister Anthrax Aristophones clearly did not like this and jumped from his seat, “No, no no! Bloody hell, Sire, we can’t go around getting our boys killed all across Haven because, no offense, you have an attachment to a people who have turned their backs on ours. If they deserved our loyalty they would have returned the kindness we’ve shown them. Godsdamned it all, we have a campaign of suppression of anarchists in former Bruxella, a civil war in Alacea, and a developing political crisis in Kampfers. We cannot afford to send military forces half-way across the planet on a whim!

Conrad frowned, “I don’t appreciate your harsh words against the Cohenian people, but I do agree. We have far too much to take care of here in our immediate area. Still, I want something done in support of the Cohenians. I shall release a statement that our full support is behind the Cohenian Empire against those greasy mongrel bastards in Chechnya. I will not specifically pledge military support, but should they ask of it I want something ready. Something minor.

Anthrax sighed, “Yes, highness. However, if they do ask of it and word gets out to the people somehow that you have done this, they will not be happy. I warn you against overstepping your bounds here. Do not do too much, too fast. They love your expansion of the frontier in Bruxella, and they love how generous you are to the newer generation’s beliefs, but this is Zukariaa and they will not stand for an abuse of power. Especially not one based on your emotions.

Conrad nodded, “Of course, I understand the consequences if this does go in that direction. Let us hope that it does not, aye?

Aye.

The Adygean people have chosen the Cohenian Empire, and have fully rejected the Chechnyan government. Why, then, do you force yourself upon them? Is this not an age of free choice, an age where a people can demand what they want of their government? An age when a government works for the people, not against them? You are clearly being selfish in your endeavor to conquer the Adygean peninsula. Does Chechnyan ambition go above and beyond the need to maintain peace and uphold the virtues that have made our region so successful?

The Zukariaan Empire, by my decree and by our age old and still standing commitments to the Cohenian people, fully support them in their annexation of Adygea. I call upon you, Mr. Masayev, to cease this futile blockade before a war breaks loose once more in Haven. This is not the conflict that you want to be remembered for, this is not what you want to define your administration.

If so desired, I may act as a mediator for this crisis here in Aiur.

Foster Slams Ichkerians In Address to Commons

David Foster delivered harsh words against Ichkerian President Salambek Masayev in an address to Parliament this afternoon, warning that Ichkeria's actions could well lead to another large-scale conflict.

"Mr. Masayev represents nothing more than an impediment to peace in East Haven, and I implore his government to rethink its choice to plunge itself into war over a territory which has made its intentions with regard to the Ichkerian Republic clear," Foster said in his speech today, adding that his government would support Cohenia in her consensual annexation of Adygea.

"The Adygean people have chosen to join the Cohenian Empire, and this choice will be respected by my government as it should be by all governments of the region," Foster added.

The Adygean government agreed to annexation into the Cohenian Empire approximately one month ago, drawing heavy criticism and pressure from Ichkeria, which implemented an air and naval blockade in response. These have also been condemned by Prime Minister Foster, who warned the Ichkerian government last week not to interfere with any Prestonian commerce in the area.

Air Prestonia and Royal Prestonian Cruise Lines officials have stated that their routes in and around Adygea have been temporarily re-routed. Attempts to reach 4th Fleet Headquarters on Innovata for comment were unsuccessful.

President warns Prestonians to "sit this one out"

The government takes a hard stance on Prestonian involvement in the Adygean crisis


President Aszenmil has released an official communique condemning the Royal Commonwealth of Central Prestonia's response to the current situation in Eastern Haven. He cites lack of Prestonian assets and interests in the area, as well as the fact that the Royal Commonwealth is in "no position to make demands".

This latest display of Prestonian political blindness comes months after the Presto-Clandonian war, in which the combined forces of the Commonwealth and their Allanean allies caused a catastrophe by attacking the Queen Victoria Nuclear Power Plant, an event which led to a complete overhaul of the Prestonian foreign policy and single-handedly ended the war.

The President also noted that the people of Prestonia were being sadly "misled into a new war" by their Prime Minister, Mr. David Foster, and to help no other than the Grand Empire of Cohenia, a country, in the President's own words, "known for it's vodka, schizophrenic leadership and ethnic conflicts".

Office of the Prime Minister


Mr. Aszenmil, it would appear that reading comprehension is not your strong suit. If you had read a copy of my speech to Commons (something I strongly doubt, though I would be more than happy to forward you a copy), I do not make any references to "dragging" my country into a war. Indeed, after the last war less than two years ago my people are more than content to stay out of the international bloodbaths which seem to so plague our region. Indeed, the only statement which my government has given which could be interpreted in a hostile manner was a warning to all parties to respect my nation's commerce in the area. Quite frankly Mr. Aszenmil, your statements with regard to my nation being "sadly misled into another war" are unfounded and preposterous. Please attempt to read the intelligence briefs presented you before making future communiques.

God Save the King.

Caucasian Republic of Ichkeria

To HM Emperor Conrad II:

I respect your wish that blood not be spilled in Adygeja and I can assure you I see eye to eye with you on this matter. However the matter is more complicated than it may at first seem. Ichkeriya is a secular, non discriminatory nation and had the Maykop government wished to remain independent they would have had my full blessing. It is Cohenian racism towards Muslims and Chechens which worries me and I speak for Ichkeriya when I say a nation as openly opposed to mine as Cohenia will not be allowed a foothold from which to possibly launch an attack. This is without mentioning that the Cohenians have stated that they will banish every Chechen from Adygeja once they assume control. Your Majesty, the Adygeh people of Adygeja share almost the same blood as the Chechens in Ichkeriya and more Adygeh live in Ichkeriya than in Adygeja. Too many families who's members live on both sides of the border will forever have their lives destroyed by the imperialistic and racist expansion of the Cohenian Empire, and by responsibility to my people and my own honor I cannot allow it to pass.

I am afraid at this time there is no possible alternative but for integration of Adygeja by Ichkeriya. The ultra-nationalist Maykop regime has not seen sense and does not put its people first. I appreciate your offer of mediation, I do, however we will only come to the table at this point if a halt to all Cohenian expansion there is assured. And this seems only possible with integration.


Sincerely:

Salambek N. Masayev
President, Kavkaz Respublika Içkeriya KRI

To Prime Minster Foster:


You seem to be misled with regards to the crisis in Adygeja. You would do well to first come to an understanding of a situation before attempting to publicly slander another head of state. The situation in Adygeja has a long history which I am sure someone of your standing would care to make themselves knowledgeable of. There are, in fact, more Adygejans (also known as Circassians) in Ichkeriya than in Adygeja. There have been widespread movements on both sides of the border for unification between our countries; mine being a conglomerate of Caucasus and other peoples, and the other nationalistic. In fact it was the ultra-nationalist regime led by President Girei who dismissed my predecessor Ibrahim Karaçay's peaceful offer for fair and equal integration and reacted by getting the Cohenians involved.

The Cohenian government has stated it would banish all Chechens in Adygeja. Many families of mixed Chechen and Circassian decent live on both sides of the border. Many people are of mixed background and beleive me when I tell you it is almost impossible to tell between a Circassian and Chechen to a foreigner based on only looks. Finally there is the anti-Islamic rhetoric which is upsetting. Ichkeriya is secular and does not discriminate between faiths. My nation will not allow such a racist and imperialistic government to take root so close to home.

Salambek N. Masayev

____________________________________________________

As the political exchanges continued as they always did at such intensity just prior to armed conflict, a different kind of politics had just been concluded. At Deimokh Air Force Base just outside the capital of Solzha-Gala a Mirrel 449 airliner painted in the national colors of green, white, and red made its final approach to runway 5. It's fighter escort of I-19 Vipers broke off and prepared to land at their own runways as the large four engined passenger liner descended towards the ground; a screech of wheels and a lowered pitch in the turbines' whine as the plane passed by an onlooking goose. Further down the runway the crew brought the plane with an uncanny likeness to the Boeing 777 to a near halt and turned it onto the tarmac. A small motorcade waited where the plane was to stop.

Vice President Murad Shishani waited leaning on the bullet proof AMW limousine as a staircase was driven up to the door of the jet. A number of entourage and officials exited the plane and Murad scanned each new silhouette that came to the door with marked interest. Finally, when he saw his man begin to walk down the stairs he began to walk forward.

"Kerim, brother welcome back." he said shaking the Secretary of State's hand firmly.
"Glad to be back brother." the man replied in Chechen. The two walked backed back to the awaiting motorcade.
"How did it go? Solzha's in an uproar, people are protesting the President's heavy-handedness."
"The Soviets are on our side." he said with a grin, "They've pledged naval support for our blockade and some boots too for the invasion."

A Republic Guardsman opened the door for the two and both entered the limousine.

Murad had a look of relief and surprise on his face as he looked at the Secretary of State, "It's about time we had some allies in this. Half of East Haven seems to be on the Cohenian's side.

"Yeah, well half of them can go fuck themselves. There's a lot of heads of state afraid of a new power that may disrupt their comfortable senses of security. At the very least we don't have to do this completely unilaterally."
"Looks like it was a good idea after hall to join HUNS" Murad replied. The Secretary of State looked at him and chuckled.
"Yeah looks like it. How are the Spizanians coming along?"

Murad shifted himself in his seat as the motorcade started along, "Our ambassador is due to hand them an official communique from the President...right about now actually."

Kerim Bey Janbek nodded and took a look outside. They rode out past the tree-topped hedges which hid the Air Force Base from view, and took an on ramp onto Capital Highway. In a moderate distance Kerim Bey could see the city center of the capital Solzha-Gala with its glittering sky scrapers and stone architecture rising above the plain. He turned as a cargo trucked passed by. "That's good. The more support we have, even if it's just political, the better off we'll be. I don't need to tell you Masayev's life will be a lot harder if Ichkeriya meets coalition opposition to whatever it does."

Murad nodded. "I feel like I have to remind him every now and then he's leading a nation and not an army. I just hope we get this war over quickly and annex the idiots. The longer this goes on the more brows we raise."

"You can say that again Murad. We can't afford to make this a drawn out affair, forget about public and international support. Word is from FISA the states in Aralania are becoming unstable: word of coup de'tats, insurrections, ethnic unrest...the whole place is like a damn matchbox ready to explode. Even the Yuritonians are making noise about having us give them protection. I've talked to Defense Secretary Mayrbek Adinai and he's as convinced as I am that within the next few years a regional war is going to break out over there...a war we may very well be dragged into."

The Vice President smiled, "Brother you make it sound like a bad thing that we be dragged in. Imagine Ichkeriya were able to establish a firm or dominant presence in the region. We already have that huge naval base in Ostfold and everyone in Haven: the Olmedrecans, the Cohenians, hell even the Solarians have colonies there. There's competition there Kerim! We've been sitting, eating galnash and dancing in our homes while around us foreigners make themselves more powerful. Everytime this has happened in the past we've ended up being invaded. It's time we stopped being so nice and introverted and start being more aggressive. History cannot repeat itself again, not after the War of Eighty Nine."

Kerim remained silent. 25 years ago he had fought in the revolution that gave birth to his country. He had lost a number of good friends and family in the war, and memories of unspeakable acts and sights were always hard to put down; yet he was a fierce patriot. "It's going to be an interesting few years." He said forebodingly.

There will be no end to the Adygejan blockade until such time as the Cohenian Empire renounces its claims to the peninsula. The Caucasus Republic, furthermore, denies any implication to the downing of a Cohenian cargo plane before imposition of the air blockade. No weapons had at that time been fired. The Cohenian Empire has stated its wish to expell all Adygejan citizens of Chechen background, although many thousands of families exist on both sides of the border with mixed ethnic backgrounds. This inconjunction with the un-provoked anti-Islamic rhetoric is disgustingly racist and will not be tolerated. Also it is worth noting that more Adygeh live in Ichkeriya than Adygeja.

Mr. Masayev, while I shall apologize for the slander I have rendered unto your name, the fact of the matter remains that the Adygean people have chosen, by referendum of the people, to integrate themselves into the Cohenian Empire. Your tarring of the former Adygeh President as a nationalist has little bearing on the situation at hand, nor does your repeated quotation of the dispersion of the Adygeh people. The Cohenian government's intentions to rid Adygea of its Muslim and Chechen population will most likely, in my opinion, be unsuccessful if your claims as to the similarities in appearance between Circassians and Chechens are correct. Deplorable as the Cohenian policies in Adygea may be, the Adygean people have spoken and if your government does truly care for their well-being it shall allow them to make their own decisions.

Alternatively, if Ichkeria does indeed fear for the fate of its brethren in Adygea, perhaps an asylum could be granted for these people to settle freely in Ichkeria. I believe you will agree that this would be preferable to war, yes?

God Save the King.

To Prime Minster Foster:

Mr. Prime Minster, although I appreciate your humanitarianism, the Republic of Ichkeriya cannot afford to be pacifist in a situation such as this. The Cohenians, if they cannot distinguish Chechen and Adygeh - which I do not credit them as capable of - will more than certainly make life impossible for an Muslims. Your suggestion of having Ichkeriya serve as an asylum will not right any wrongs. Immigration to Ichkeriya is already an open and friendly process but the burden of millions of displaced civilians when they can rather be allowed to live in their own homes is too detrimental to consider. It is unfortunate but there is no alternative.

Official Message from the Federal Republic of Franberry


It is indeed a sad sight to see that the Caucasian Republic of Ichkeria is willing to starve all of its supposedly Adygean "brothers" to death by maintaining its illegal and counter productive blockade rather than take the path of reason and be willing to discuss this in a civilized manner. Your claims of ethnic brotherhood fall upon deaf ears here in Franciscopolis, as I am most sure that they do in other capitals, when these claims are confronted by the hypocrisy of the Ichkerian state towards Adygea, wishing to put it under the sword.

There is no greater or more clear cause in this matter, than the voices that cry out for freedom on the streets of Maykop and every other Adygean city and village.

Signed,

Ernesto Guerillendin,
Minister of Foreign Relations, Commerce and Cult.

TO: [Open Communique]
FROM: Alejandro Aszenmil, President, The Socialist Republic of Osthafen

SUBJECT: RE: Prestonian response


I'm afraid, Mr. Foster, that in my speech I never said that you were willingly leading your country into a new war. I merely commented that the Commonwealth's actions and stance in the Ichkeriyan crisis could very result in war for Prestonia.

Let's be honest, Mr. Foster, the truth is that Haven's not a friendly place for sane people. You have Doomani fanatics in one corner, emaciated Clandonians in the other, drunk Cohenians in the middle. The facts speak for themselves, in our region, a statement of support is usual accompanied by military involvement.

I also took into consideration the fact that, while the Royal Commonwealth maintains it is a sovereign and free country, history has shown that their leaders seem to simply forget about this from time to time, choosing to serve someone else's interests rather than those of their fellow countrymen.

Again, I urge you not to meddle with the affairs of Eastern Haven, Prestonia has nothing to do here and I suspect that the general population would not support sending their boys to do the Cohenians' dirty work in this forgotten corner of our region.

Signed,

National Express Flight 479
Bendigo International Airport, Runway 27 L, Victoria
0900 Hours


The massive SST sat imposingly on the runway, sunlight gleaming off its metallic hull. National Express, Prestonia's leading cargo shipping firm, had purchased two such aircraft, Chevrokian Sigrun SSTs, from Air Prestonia and typically used these for interregional shipping. Today, however, they would be undertaking a slightly more noble venture: the delivery of humanitarian aid to the people of Adygea. The Adygeh people had been blockaded by the Ichkeriyan government for around a month now, and all aid from Cohenia turned back by force. This aid, however, was coming not from Cohenia but from the Prestonian Red Cross Adygean Relief Fund, and thus it was hoped that the Ichkeriyans would allow it to enter. The belly of the Sigrun had been filled to the brim with all manner of supplies for the Adygeans: propane stoves, fuel oil and propane, food, water, diapers and formula, and boxes upon boxes of toys for children of all ages. The flight was to take twelve hours, and necessitate a crossing of Ichkeriyan airspace, but the two pilots of Flight 479 were willing to risk these perils to ensure that their cargo was safely delivered. Upon completion of this flight, the pilots would overnight in Maykop, followed by a jog down to Innovata where they would be relieved by one of the many relief crews, some from the RPAF itself. The mission would continue until the blockade was lifted.

"Tower, NatEx four-seven-niner reviewing flight plan over," came the smooth voice of 44 year old Rick Jacobs, captain for this flight. Rick had been flying for most of his life, first as an RPNAS pilot and then with NatEx, and had jumped at this mission as soon as it was offered, the one thousand pound bonus notwithstanding. He had joined the military to do good, he reasoned, and there was no reason why he shouldn't do good in the private sector.

"NatEx four-seven-niner go ahead, over," came the tower's response a few seconds later.

"Aircraft registration number papa-five-seven-niner-two-sierra-romeo, designation NatEx four-seven-niner bound for Maykop International along Corridor seven-charlie, ETA 2100. Confirm, over?," came the voice of 31 year old copilot Henry Anderson.

"Confirmed, over. NatEx four-seven-niner taxi to runway two-seven-lima, hold short over."

"Roger."

"NatEx four-seven-niner cleared for takeoff, runway two-seven-lima, over. Have a good flight," came the tower's sendoff, as the SST rocketed down the runway and into the sky.

Ten hours later and having just cleared Willinkian airspace at nearly Mach 2, Captain Jacobs flipped on his headset and hailed the nearest Ichkeriyan airport for airspace clearance.

"NatEx four-seven-niner requesting permission to ingress airspace, repeat NatEx four-seven-niner requests permission to ingress airspace. We are bound for Maykop and carrying humanitarian aid to the people of Adygea, over."

After a few minutes, Rick banked the aircraft gently along its flight path toward the next waypoint, dropping in altitude slightly as they prepared to approach Maykop, assuming of course the Ichkeriyans gave them permission. If not, Rick was certain this routine mission would become very interesting in a hurry.

The transmission of the Clandonian aircraft came as a surprise to the air traffic controller who received it, it wasn't as thought flights never came or went to Clandonia from Ichkeriya, however the stated mission of the aircraft as well as a different radio signature than the ATC had ever seen in his life made him a little wary. What was going on in Adygea was common knowledge since it was only on the news every hour of the day. In a few seconds the pilot was told to hold course until further notice. The transmission was rerouted to an Air Force control center where the flight was again asked to repeat what it was doing and why it wanted to enter Adygean airspace. After this the officer in command notified the flight that a pair of I-17 fighters would escort them until they left Ichkerian airspace.

It was then that they realised it was a Prestonian aircraft and not Clandonian. Toying with the idea of shooting down the plane, officers on all levels, from the pilots escorting, to the commanders back at base, to that air traffic controller dude, were all shrugging and saying "eh, it's all Greek to me"

Cohenia went with: Move the Home Fleet
Popinski announces fleet to be stationed in Dayan

In response to the Osthafen agreement to send military supplies and vessels to Ichkeria, the Ministry of War has announced that it intends on moving the largest Cohenian fleet, the Stuyvesant Home Fleet, to the southern port city of Dayan. "The only intention of the Chechen government is to declare war on the Grand Empire. With that in mind, we have given the word to the Home Fleet to restation itself in Dayan." Dayan is the second largest city in the Grand Empire and the most southern city in the mainland.

The Grand Empire is currently tracking the Osthafenian vessels and will intercept any and all vessels from Osthafen.

Encryption: Translated into 176 languages. Additional languages available upon request. Assistance to those hard-of-seeing and hard-of-hearing available.


Sirs,

We regret to inform you that our air defense installations and systems have been repaired from their prior mishap. Subsequently, we refuse to allow any more military traffic through our airspace and any military traffic (aerial or naval) in our waters. However, we are open to negotiation concerning your exclave in our territory and the Blue Pixel Cay. If you are willing to surrender the exclave to our control and drop all claims on Blue Pixel Cay, we will reconsider and most likely rescind our current intent to stop all military traffic originating from Cohenia.

If Cohenia is unwilling to negotiate the above terms, we will close our airspace to Cohenian military traffic. Civilian traffic will be unaffected but will be monitored via our air defense installations and military aircraft. Civilian flights deemed of questionable nature or on a heading indicative of travel to the contested territory of Adygea will be subject to a forced landing to inspect cargo. If the cargo is genuinely civilian in nature, the aircraft will be refueled and maintained courtesy of the Armed Republic government, and returned to flight. If of military nature, the cargo may be seized with eventual return to Cohenia or the flight redirected to Cohenia while under Armed Republic Air Force escort. This also applies to naval traffic.

If any military traffic is present in our airspace, it will be requested to return to Cohenia. If it fails to do so, it will be intercepted and escorted by AFAR aircraft until it does so. If it fails to respond, it may be subject to being fired upon.

We wish to thank you for your kind gifts to the Armed Republic. They have been appreciated.

Regards, Armed Republic Ministry of Foreign Affairs

Official Communique from the Office of the Prime Minister
Top Secret
srsly.

While the Cohenian government wishes not to, it will allow the Armed Republic to have the exclave and will cede half of Blue Pixel Quay to the Armed Republic. It is the Grand Empire's wishes to start a Armed Republic-Grand Empire co-prosperity region on the Quay and begin a glorious friendship.

In response to this wondrous occasion, the Grand Empire shall send several kegs of beer to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and will set up a co-prosperity dome on the Quay to start.

Glorious days await!

Andrey Federov
Prime Minister to His Imperial Majesty the Czar
