Ex-Novgorodian troops to be demobilized
 
ST. PETERSBURG - In one of his first official acts as head of state, Grand Duke Mikhail Ivanovich Romanov issued orders for former Novgorodian troops still fighting in Finland to cease and desist their actions, withdraw from their positions, and turn in their weapons and equipment to a nearest Army demobilization station.
 
"Any Novgorodian troops that comply with this order will be honorably discharged from military service, receive appropriate honorary medals, and allowed to go home to their families," the Duke said in a press statement in Moscow. "However, these who decide to go on fighting will receive appropriate punishment, including but not limited to, a court-martial."
 
Further, the Duke continued, the Foreign Ministry had already contacted the Government of Sweden through a plenipotentiary about a ceasefire that were to be put in place to allow Novgorodian troops to comply with the order. Lastly, he expressed hopes of a "lasting peace" in northern Europe, and looked forward to peaceful and prosperous relations with Muscovy's neighbors. Muscovite troops have entered St. Petersburg and are currently establishing demobilization stations to expedite the demobilization process.

City of Novgorod placed under quarantine
 
NOVGOROD - Grand Duke Romanov issued a special decree imposing an quarantine on the former capital of Novgorod. 
 
A non-entry zone (NEZ) extending fifty miles from the city will be established, enforceable by Army troops and militsiya (police). All citizens within the NEZ will be promptly evacuated, while radiologist personnel clad in Level A hazmat suits will evacuate any victims they find in the city itself for medical treatment. It has been projected that infrastructural repairs alone will cost billions of rubles, given the massive amount of damage the city sustained to its electronic grids and equipment, and would take years, if not decades, to fully repair.
 
The nuclear attack on Novgorod occurred when the Kingdom of Axum apparently launched a nuclear ICBM at the city due to a misunderstanding of some sort. The ensuing EMP fallout wreaked havoc on much of the city's unhardened electronic infrastructure. While not directly criticizing the Kingdom of Axum for its attack on Novgorod, the Grand Duke nevertheless expressed his displeasure at this "disproportionate course of action," and expressed hope that this would not become the standard for international diplomacy in the postwar world.

Militia groups ordered to disband or face consequences

 

MOSCOW - Provisional Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev issued a special order mandating all militia groups in the St. Petersburg, Pskov, and parts of the Novgorod oblasts to disband and turn their weapons and equipment to militsiya units within seventy-two hours, taking effect immediately. Any units found not to be in compliance after that time period will be subject to "appropriate disciplinary action."

"We have a serious security situation developing around here," Kolokoltsev stated in a press statement in Moscow. "The militias were formed out of protest against the defunct Novgorodian government due to its participation in an unpopular war. However, the Novgorodian empire no longer exists and the war has ended, so their actions are highly detrimental to the peace and stability in the Grand Duchy. If the militias want to do the right thing, they will turn in their weapons to the authorities and return to civilian life."

This order followed various reports of bloody clashes between militia units and the police in several provincial towns and villages. In the town of Volosovo, located forty miles southwest of St. Petersburg, a junior militsiya commander was shot and killed in a firefight after the militia's commander refused to stand down. Similar incidents occurred in Tikhvin, Borovichi, and even in parts of St. Petersburg itself. Security around the Winter Palace, the seat of the city's local government, had to be beefed up after a series of isolated firefights broke out in the Krasnogvardeysky District, in northeastern St. Petersburg.

Administrative system reorganized

 

MOSCOW - With Grand Duke Romanov's telephoned approval, Steward Vladimir Putin signed an administrative ukase (decree) reorganizing the nation's administrative divisions. The City of St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Oblast were merged into the St. Petersburg Oblast, while the City of Moscow acceded to the Moscow Oblast.

Furthermore, the ukase officially designated the oblasts as governorates, effectively resurrecting the administrative divisions utilized by the first Russian Empire, designated their administrative centers, and stipulated that governors be directly appointed by the Grand Duke at the advice of the Steward (governorate legislatures would be locally elected). The new governorates are as follows, along with administrative centers:
 

Moscow Governorate (Moscow)
St. Petersburg Governorate (St. Petersburg)
Ivanovo Governorate (Ivanovo)
Kaluga Governorate (Kaluga)
Novgorod Governorate (Borovichi)
Pskov Governorate (Pskov)
Ryazan Governorate (Ryazan)
Smolensk Governorate (Smolensk)
Tula Governorate (Tula)
Tver Governorate (Tver)
Vladimir Governorate (Vladimir)
Yaroslavl Governorate (Yaroslavl) 

 

Finally, the ukase established two administrative districts. The St. Petersburg, Pskov, and Novgorod governorates were to form the Northwestern District, which would be administrated from St. Petersburg; while the Moscow, Ivanovo, Ryazan, Smolensk, Tula, Tver, Vladimir, and Yaroslavl governorates were to comprise the Central District, and be administrated from Moscow. While not constituent units in their right, the administrative districts are intended to improve and further the operation and governance of the central government, and ensure the implementation of law and regulations across the Grand Duchy. Each administrative district will be headed by a Plenipotentiary-General, who will ensure compliance with laws and regulations.

Karelia, Murmansk, and Vologda join Muscovy

 

ST. PETERSBURG - Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Medvedev met with local representatives from the regions of Karelia, Murmansk, and western Vologda, where they discussed a wide range of matters such as trade, industrial development, and defense. According to his report to Steward Vladimir Putin, forwarded to Grand Duke Mikhail Romanov, Medvedev stated that the regions had been sustaining themselves since the collapse of the Greater Russian Empire in the Great Apocalypse, but they have come to view the Grand Duchy of Moscow as a bastion of stability and prosperity. Accordingly, they took the initiative to discuss the possibility of an association with Moscow.

After much negotiations, in which specific issues were raised for elaboration and deliberations by several concerned representatives, the representatives of Karelia, Murmansk, and western Vologda agreed to sign treaties of accession, effectively joining the Muscovite nation. Their local assemblies, after further deliberations, ratified the treaties as well. The Grand Duke, busy in the Northlands, voiced his approval in a secure phone conversation with Putin. The news of the accession to the Grand Duchy were cause of celebration in major cities such as Murmansk, Vologda, Cherepovets, and Petrozavodsk. A referendum was planned to be held in the regions.

Under the administrative ukase issued by Putin, the Decree on the Administrative System of Muscovy, Murmansk and West Vologda became Governorates, while Karelia became the Viceroyality of Karelia, the first of its kind. Furthermore, the three regions were to become part of the Northwestern District, and would take part in the upcoming elections for the Constituent Assembly and the State Duma. Lastly, two mechanized divisions (which included rapid deployment brigades), a light motorized brigade, and an airborne brigade of the Muscovite Army were dispatched to the newly-incorporated regions.

Ultimatum to militia groups a mixed success

 

MOSCOW - The seventy-two-hour deadline have passed. During this time, a majority of the militia groups in the St. Petersburg, Pskov, and parts of the Novgorod governorates have compiled with the order so far, lining up at militsiya stations and peacefully returning to civilian life.

Several of other militia groups, however, did not. If anything, they intensified their attacks on local police headquarters and even civilians in general. In Pskov, militants tried to storm a shopping mall, but were repulsed by militisya forces in a protracted firefight that lasted for the better part of an hour. Radiological operations near Novgorod had to be temporarily suspended due to militia attacks, and troops in Novgorod Governorate were now stationed on the city's outskirts in hazmat suits.

Under such circumstances, the police clamped down hard. In Tikhvin and Rzhev, heavily-armed militisya units, with Army tactical support, launched a series of lightning raids on several apartments and warehouses, arresting dozens of ringleaders and members in the process. The escalating situation in St. Petersburg's Krasnogvardeysky District prompted the city's mayor to call for assistance. In response, a naval infantry brigade from the fortress of Kronstadt, located off the coast of St. Petersburg, were dispatched to the the city itself, along with regular and auxiliary police units.

To assuage public anxiety, Interior Minister Kolokoltsev assured that the police had the situation "contained so far," and that the government was doing everything to maintain the peace and order. "The level of the militia threat is rather low, when you consider the fact that the vast majority of such members chose to peacefully turn their weapons in instead of using them against us."

Moscow International Business Center to be evaluated by commission

 

MOSCOW - The Moscow City Council approved a resolution establishing a commission to evaluate the feasibility of renovating the Moscow International Business Center (IBC).

Built under the prewar Imperial Russian regime, and located in western Moscow, the IBC (also referred to as Moscow-City) was a major commercial district. Over 300,000 people worked and lived there, and the district was replete with businesses, corporations, hotels, casinos, restaurants, theaters, shopping malls, apartments and condos, and other venues of entertainment. At that time, the IBC was referred to as the entertainment capital of Russia, if not Europe and the world.

A large part of the IBC was devastated during the Great Apocalypse, and is now a hulk of its former self, even although businesses and companies are starting to establish operations there. Among the buildings to be evaluated and renovated are the Central Core, Tower 2000, Evolution Tower, Imperia Tower, City of Capitals, Naberezhnaya Tower, Eurasian Tower, and the Federation Tower.

Trade agreement signed with Ubersteinia

 

MOSCOW - The Grand Duchy of Moscow signed a trade and optional defense agreement with its neighbor in the Baltic Union of Ubersteinia. This is a great triumph for Muscovy on the world stage, and marks the beginning of a period of peaceful cooperation with its neighbors on a myriad of issues that challenge it, and other nations, today. Foreign Ministry officials expressed hope that the ongoing meetings with the Northlands and Sverige would be equally as successful.
 
The treaty, which was ratified by the His Imperial Majesty's Chancellery, stipulated "respect and good will" between Muscovy and Ubersteinia, encouraged mutual political, economic, or military assistance, mandated intelligence-sharing, facilitated free trade for the most part, and included a cancellation clause.

Offensive against militia groups reaches turning point 

 

ST. PETERSBURG - The offensive against the militias reached its apex when over thirty-seven militiamen, twelve militsiya officers, and seven Army troops were killed, and several dozens wounded on both sides, in the fighting in St. Petersburg's Krasnogvardeysky District. According to sources, the fighting devolved at times into house-to-house battles, where the combatants faced off in several private houses. "It was like Stalingrad during the Great Patriotic War, where the troops had liberated the living room only to have to fight for the kitchen," a citizen spoke to the Moscow Times on condition of anonymity. While the fighting raged on, police and Army units cordoned off part of the District as to ensure public safety.
 
Despite the heavy casualties on both sides, today's battle marked a decisive turning point, if not outright victory, in the 'offensive' against the recalcitrant militias. There were reports of militiamen surrendering to police and Army troops in several towns. For instance, in Luga, about a hundred miles south of St. Petersburg, a militia commander surrendered after over half of his unit were decimated in the fighting there. The same occurred in Pskov, Tikhvin, and Rzhev.
 
Interior Minister Kolokoltsev praised the "brave and honorable" militsiya and Army troops and personnel for their valiance in the 'war' against the militias. "Never was so much owed by so many to so few," the Minister echoed Winston Churchill's famous words in describing the operation.

Gazprom announces plans to develop oil field in Barents Sea

 

MOSCOW - In a meeting chaired by Steward Vladimir Putin, Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller announced plans to develop the Shtokman gas field, one of the largest in the world. Located in the Barents Sea, off the coast of the Kola peninsula, the Shtokman field is estimated to contain approximately 3.7 trillion cubic meters (130 trillion cubic feet) of natural gas, and if properly developed, has the potential to produce up to 95 billion cubic meters of gas per annum (3.4 trillion cubic feet per annum).

Accordingly, the Shtokman Development Corporation would be established to oversee the development project, such as designing and constructing drilling platforms, production complexes, a pipe network, and a liquid natural gas (LNG) plant, and Gazprom subsidiary Shelf Dobyica will grant licenses for exploration and production on the Shtokman field. The project is estimated to cost between $15 and 20 billion, although Alexander Medvedev, chairman of Gazprom's management committee, stated that development costs would be $12 billion. To address environmental concerns, the CEO stated that specialized equipment such as floating removable platforms will be used to offset potential risks such as icebergs in the Arctic. The platforms will be connected to the seafloor through special templates, and can be reconnected to land-based plants on the Barents Sea coast.

Lastly, CEO Miller stated that plans for an exploratory expedition to the Gulf of Ob and the Yamal Peninsula, both in western Siberia, are currently under consideration.

State of emergency imposed in response to nuclear attacks in Asia
 
MOSCOW - A state of emergency was declared today, in response to troubling reports of nuclear attacks in Asia. Exactly what happened is not clear, but apparently disagreements between Japan, France, and the two Chinas over Hong Kong and Taiwan somehow led to a series of nuclear attacks on China, Japan, and the Philippines.
 
"This is precisely what led to the Great Apocalypse," Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Medvedev stated in a televised emergency press statement in Moscow. "Tensions and disagreements among the pre-apocalyptic governments nearly led to the end of the world, and I fear that if cooler heads do not prevail, we may see a repeat. This failure on part of government leaders to learn the lessons of the past may doom us in the future, that is, if there is such a future."
 
Grand Duke Mikhail Romanov and Foreign Minister Vladimir Lavrov, currently in a diplomatic meeting in the Northlands, have been contacted and briefed about the situation, Medvedev said. In the meanwhile, civilian defense shelters are in the process of being opened in Moscow, St. Petersburg, and other major cities, and civilians encouraged to take refuge and wait for further instructions from the Interior Ministry. In the meanwhile, the militsiya (police) and military are preparing to activate emergency evacuation procedures on a moment's notice.
 
Although the nuclear war in Asia is very far from Muscovy, there remains the terrifying possibility that it may escalate and spread to other regions of the world. The Government is closely monitoring the situation, and will take further steps as it develops.

Elections for Constituent Assembly held

 

MOSCOW - Elections for the 450-seat Constituent Assembly were held. Four major political parties were formed, organized, and registered with the Electoral Registration Commission in the Ministry of Justice: United Muscovy (UNM), Liberal-Democratic Party (LDP), Socialist Democratic Party (SDP), and the Russian Unity Party (RUP). Following months of intense campaigning across the country, millions of Muscovite citizens lined up at election booths on Election Day to cast their votes, with a voter turnout of 85 percent. 
 
Once booths were closed, and votes tallied and verified, it was announced that United Muscovy, a centrist, conservative party dedicated to pragmatic and monarchist values, received over 54.7 percent of the vote (246 seats), winning the election. The LDP, in turn, garnered over 20.4 percent of the vote, receiving 92 seats. The SDP received 14.5 percent (65 seats), followed by the RUP, which won 10.4 percent (47 seats). According to an electoral decree issued by the Ministry of Justice, United Muscovy will not be required to form a coalition government with the other parties since it received over a majority of the popular vote. Lastly, UNM founder and leader, Antonin Zukovsky, will serve as chairman of the Constituent Assembly.
 
The Constituent Assembly will be tasked with the drafting and promulgation of Muscovy's first permanent constitution, under which the Grand Duchy's government structure will be constituted on a more permanent basis. Following the constitution-drafting process, the Constituent Assembly will become the lower house of the Muscovite legislature.

Muscovy's first constitution drafted

 
MOSCOW
- The first session of the Constituent Assembly was filled with lively debate as delegates of the four parties prepared for the daunting task of drafting a constitution. A vast majority of United Muscovy and over half of the Russian Unity Party delegates advocated for an absolute monarchy, stating that it would not only provide stability and order for Muscovy in the post-apocalyptic world, but reflected ancient traditions of the Rus. The Liberal-Democratic Party, in turn, argued for a constitutional monarchy, in which power would be placed in the head of government and the legislature instead of the head of state. The Social Democratic Party tried to propose a middle road, stating that Muscovy could be a limited constitutional monarchy, similar to the first Russian Empire between 1905 and 1917, and that a stronger system of checks and balance could be instituted as to ensure an equilibrium between the head of state and legislature.
 
Across the political spectrum, there were dozens of delegates that either disagreed with their respective party's platform, or abstained altogether. For instance, UNM delegate Alexei Stratsky warned about the "inherent danger" of absolutism, stating that it was the "over-centralizing tendencies" that doomed the Russian Empire in the Great Apocalypse. LDP deputies Gregori Kamenev and Leonid Krasnov stated that the prerogatives of the Grand Duke should be transferred to the Steward (which would be an equivalent to a Prime Minister), effectively advocating an authoritarian head of government, a sentiment that caused dissension among their counterparts.
 
Midst the impassioned agreements or persuasive rebuttals, a draft slowly came into being, subject to countless modifications, proposals, and counter-proposals. The UNM delegates, along with their RUP supporters, utilized their considerable number of seats in the Assembly, as well their party discipline, to their advantage, succeeding in overcoming opposition and pushing their constitutional draft to the floor for voting. 209 out of 246 UNM delegates voted in favor for the draft, with 27 opposing and ten abstaining, while 25 out of 47 RUP delegates voted in support, a razor-thin majority. Likewise, 14 out of 92 LDP delegates, and 21 out of 65 SDP indicated their support. Despite the concerted opposition of the LDP and most SDP delegates, the UNM draft was passed.
 

Parties - Support/Oppose/Abstain:
 
United Muscovy (UNM): 209/27/10
Liberal-Democratic Party (LDP): 14/70/8
Social Democratic Party (SDP): 21/27/17
Russian Unity Party (RUP): 25/13/9
 
Total: 269/137/44

 

After the vote, Chairman Antonin Zukovsky would announce the results and publish the draft of the Constitution to be distributed to government agencies, public institutions, foreign embassies, and private citizens. The draft went as follows:

Mutual defense and trade treaty signed with the Northlands


MOSCOW - The diplomatic meeting in the Northlands was a success. A friendly and amicable meeting with King William IV in the city of Noordenwind ended with the signing of a mutual defense and free trade treaty. This marked a major success of the Muscovite Government on the world stage, and was greeted with cheering in major cities. The Constituent Assembly ratified the treaty in a remarkably short session, and it marked the first time the major parties were all in agreement.
 
The treaty obligated the governments of Muscovy and the Northlands to observe non-aggression, share relevant intelligence with each other, defend each other from outside aggression by a hostile third party, provide emergency assistance in natural disasters, reduce or eliminate trade barriers, facilitate the exchange of culture, and included a cancellation clause.

Autonomous region established

 
TSARITSYN
- Representatives from the Black Earth, South Volga, and North Caucasian regions assembled in Moscow. After several hours of negotiations, they agreed to sign a treaty forming an autonomous region in the form of the Viceroyalty of South Russia (VSR). The VSR will enjoy a high degree of autonomy in that it will have its own constitution, legislature, administrative apparatus, and a regional defense force; it will be allowed to levy its own taxes as well be exempt from central taxation for a period of five years. The central government in Moscow will be solely responsible for foreign affairs, national defense, and telecommunications. The Volga city of Tsaritsyn (formerly Volgograd) will serve as the capital and seat of government of the VSR.
 
Furthermore, the representatives of Bryansk and Oryol signed separate treaties of accession, adjoining their respective regions to the Grand Duchy as Governorates under the Decree on the Administrative System of Muscovy. Under the same Decree, the Southern District was established, to be administered from Tsaritsyn, and a Plenipotentiary-General would be appointed there. Finally, Tsaritsyn was designated an Imperial City, becoming the third one after Moscow and Saint Petersburg, under Chapter Two of the Constitution, and an Elector would be appointed there.

OOC: When did you deploy soldiers there? Show a post, please. And how many oil wells do your soldiers supposedly control?

 

IC: "The protection of Ukrainian-owned oil wells in the North Caucasus shall be the state objectives of the Viceroyalty of Southern Russia under the auspices of the Government of Moscow, although we refer you to an ordnance that limit foreign ownership of oil wells. Furthermore, foreign-owned oil wells are to register with Gazprom and obey its regulations."

Depending on what these regulations are, we may comply. We would like to keep this in the most peaceful manner possible, but our sovereignty will not be infringed.

"I'm afraid not, you cannot come on land we own then claim it a sovereign nation. Our rights will not be infringed. If you do not look forward to handling this respectfully and obey our rules, we will comply with yours. You will not come on Ukraine owned land and dictate rules for us to follow. We are not cattle, slaves, or your subjects."

OOC: looking for it tmrw, will post tmrw due to ipad difficulties. I believe I linked it to Hereno/Mogar/TBM or someone of the like in #CNRP2

"Your oil wells are within the territory of the Viceroyalty of Southern Russia, and by extension of the Grand Duchy of Moscow, and as such, your properties are subject to our laws and regulations, as according to our Constitution. As long your oil wells obey Muscovian regulations, all will be well. You will not dictate to us our own sovereignty within what is our own territories. We have indicated our willingness to respect the status of your oil wells, and we do not appreciate it when you make unsubstantiated accusations toward us."

"You invaded southern Russia which we had been placed in. You moving there does not make everyone else there a status of violating your sovereignty. That would be like Ukraine claiming your nations land and then complaining you're violating my sovereignty by being there and not following my rules.

This blatant act of imperialism is astounding and will not go without a response. We ask you to leave the Caucasus at once. We will not allow these people to be invaded. They make a lot of revenue from our oil companies being there and purchasing the wells and giving them gasoline prices at a massively discounted price. You are doing nothing but invading them for land. "

OOC: Are you doing this in an attempt to troll me or for a casus belli? Iirc you were there when I was discussing the oil wells I put in the caucuses. Edited by Rotavele

"We have received some surprising revelations. Turns out that Ukrainian nationals and organizations had acquired the oil wells illegally, and your Government has stationed troops there without our knowledge or consent. And they are exploiting what are rightfully our resources. Turns out that you are the one who are commiting an act of blatent imperialism, say nothing of deliberately violating our sovereignty and territorial integrity, lying to our faces about it, and insulting us with your patiently false accusations. We will not stand for this.
 
Ukrainian nationals are to evacuate the oil wells, and military forces are to leave the Caucasus region of the Viceroyalty of Southern Russia at once."
 
Classified for the most part:
 
Army units and auxiliary police officers in the Caucasian regions would be placed on a state of high alert, although they would not move from their current positions just yet. Fighters and bomber aircrafts would be refueled in airbases and airfields, although they would not be moved yet. Any satellites over the regions would see very little military movements.

Due to the aggressive actions by the Moscow Government, the Ukraine would like to declare protection over the invaded lands. We will not let imperialistic tyrants threaten global stability and spread lies and slander against our great nation as indicated in The European Community communications. We demand all Moscow invaders leave the area at once. You are not welcome here and you will not invade land to expand into Europe beside us. You pose an immediate threat to our nation by taking those lands."
