[quote]To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing you on behalf of the Slavorussian government, which wishes to inquire about RAF Fort Joona in Finland. In light of recent changes in England and souring of relations between Slavorussia and England, the base has become a subject of concern. The base, which houses long range, stealth bombers cannot be allowed to operate so close to Slavorussian territory. Therefore, the time has come for this issue to be solved.

On behalf of the Prime Minister I have the honor of inviting you to Moscow to tackle this issue head on. If you choose to accept this invitation all accommodations will be handled by the Slavorussian Foreign Ministry,

Signed,
Foreign Minister Dmitry Medvedev [/quote]

[quote]Dear Foreign Minister Dmitry Medvedev,

I was unaware that relations between Slalorrussia and England were sour at all. We all know the recent mishap was reason for everyone to be concerned but at the moment I can assure you that the current government of England is nothing you should worry about. Once elections are over and done with England will clear it's name and embark on a mission of restoration of lost relationships but perhaps this will be the first of such diplomatic missions.

I shall send the Foreign Minister, John Smith, to Moscow immediately to handle the situation you have brought up.

Arthur Thwaites, Prime Mnister[/quote]

No expense was spared for Foreign Minister Smith’s visit to Moscow. All the pomp and ceremony of a state visit was included in the day’s events. Dmitry Medvedev, the former Prime Minister and recently appointed Foreign Minister greeted his English counterpart at Sheremetyevo Airport along with the honor guard, which was available for review by the visiting Foreign Minister.

Following fanfare and ceremony at the airport the group was transported by helicopter to the Kremlin. At the Kremlin a review of graduating army cadets in Cathedral Square and a small dinner hosted by the Tsar concluded the ceremonies.

After dinner Foreign Minister Smith was escorted to the meet Prime Minister Putin in the Red reception room.

“Hello Mr. Smith. Did you enjoy the ceremonies?”

"Yes, Mr Putin, the ceremony was rather spectacular I must admit. You really didn't have to bother with such a thing for just me however I very much appreciate the effort you have put into making me feel welcomed here in Moscow.

Now, let's get to the matter at hand, shall we? As I understand there is a general election underway as we speak (OOC: We'll assume results aren't in yet) and so it would seem that stability will be restored to Britain much sooner than we expected. Now, where shall we begin?"

“I’ll get straight to the point with you Mr. Smith. I don’t want you staging aircraft or any military assets in Finland. Of courses I’m speaking of the For Joona in Porkkala. The presence of England’s strategic bombers in Finland presents itself as a clear threat toward Slavorussia and the rest of Eastern Europe and it cannot be allowed to remain there.

I hope that, as men of reason, we can agree for the English to withdraw and hand the base over to the Finish Military. Do you agree?”

"I am sorry you feel so threatened by the presence of RAF Fort Joona. However at this time we do not feel it would be appropriate for England to relinquish any such base that we feel is vital to the safety of our nation. All I can offer you is the removal of the long range bombers which would be replaced with high speed interceptors."

Vladimir sat silently in a red armchair staring at England’s foreign minister with his cold blue eyes to determine his resolve. An uncomfortable silence is broken when General Istvan Gulyas, commander of Slavorussian forces in Finland enters and salutes. Vladimir introduces the two men and continues speaking.

“That is very unfortunate Mr. Smith, because we feel that Finland is within our sphere of influence and a minimally important to England’s defense. Perhaps the English government could reconsider?”

I would have though that our current non aggression pact would have been suffice to ensure you that there is no threat to yourselves. The base itself is part of a base sharing with Finland due to the fact we are allies. Making sure we at least have some allies in the world is paramount to our security. Perhaps instead of attempting to remove our base from Finland we should attempt to reconcile our disagreements from the past?

We in England have a great respect for the Slavorussians, maybe if our relations were to be bettered we might see less of a need for said base.

"I’m afraid the possibility of repairing our relationship would no be possible as long as the English threat remains seated in our backyard. Surely you can understand how it might be perceived that we were somehow bullied into it. You may or may not know, Mr. Smith, that I am not a man who is easily bullied.

No, sadly the cities of Slavorussia are not safe as long as England owns and operates a base in Finland, and if Slavorussian cities are not safe then I am prepared to use every method available to me to neutralize the threat. So, I ask you again, could the English government reconsider and remove it's military presence from Finland?"

Vladimir had grown tired of the Foreign Minister’s attempts to stall the inevitable. He shook his head in frustration at how stubborn the Englishman had been, before calling an escort to take his honored visitor back to the airport.

Shortly after all English diplomatic workers were expelled from the country and all their Russian counterparts were recalled. The time for words had passed. Now Russia and England would be judged by their actions.
