Petrograd, Russian Soviet Republic - It had taken time, weeks and months to be exact. But the task was now done. Tens of thousands of soldiers of the Revolutionary Soviet Army (renamed to the Red Army of the Soviet Republic, or just the Red Army for short) and hundreds of tanks, most of them T-34s, were amassed up in and around Petrograd, ready to carry the torch of socialist world revolution to the rest of Russia and on to the rest of the world!

And at the head stood Vladimir Ulyanov Lenin. The Soviet leader stood at the balcony of the Tauride Palace, smiling as he surveyed the columns of soldiers and tanks marching through the city's main boulevard. "It has now begun." He said to his wife, Nadezhda Krupskaya, standing besides him.

"Forward! For the Revolution!"

With this simple command, yelled by a Russian commander, the Red Army went into action, marching out from Petrograd and heading southwards, toward the City of Moscow. It was expected to be a success.

Spreading southwards, the Red Army encountered virtually no resistance as they neared and neared Moscow, occupying every and each city and town in the way with utmost ease. Red flags flew over the buildings of the cities and towns as the Reds continued their advance southwards. Almost immediately, Red Army troops and tanks swept into Novgorod; several hours later, they entered Tver. Moscow was now less than 100 miles away.

Finally, the spires of the Kremlin was visible as the Red Army approached the gates of Moscow. Soon, Moscow was under Soviet control as Red Army troops and tanks marched through its streets. A provisional Soviet was duly established in the Kremlin as Moscow was officially incorporated into the Russian Soviet Republic...

Petrograd, Russian Soviet Republic: Moscow may have been in Soviet hands, but the advance didn't stop there. Stationing a few divisions in Moscow, the Red Army continued its advance southward and east, and with the intents of capturing the cities of Orel, Tambov, Yaroslavl, and Nizhniy Novgorod. At the same time, Red Army soldiers also advanced to the west, eventually reaching the shores of Lake Peipus and occupying the city of Pskov.

In the north, thousands of Red Army soldiers set out from Petrograd, heading for the cities of Viipuri (Vyborg), Petrozavodsk, and Helsingfors (Helsinki). Their aims was to extend their influence to include all of Finland and to bring Soviet power to the shores of the Kola Peninsula.

In Petrograd, the newly-convened Second Party Congress, under Lenin's chairmanship, issued a resolution. Titled the All-Russian National Resolution Concerning the State of Affairs of the Russian Soviet State and the Russian Homeland and its People, the resolution officially renamed the Russian Soviet Republic to the Russian Soviet Federated Socialist Republic (RSFSR). The new RSFSR is to serve as the beacon of Russian and Soviet power not only in all of Russia, but also all over the world. It's capital shall remain in Petrograd.

Further plans for the Government and State are pending.

Petrograd, Russian Soviet Federated Socialist Republic - Today, after several hours and even days of unimpeded progress, the Red Army entered and occupied the cities of Orel, Tambov, Yaroslavl, and Nizhniy Novgorod, where a respective Soviet was established in each City. Furthermore, in the north, Red Army soldiers swept into Viipuri and Petrozavodsk, and were rapidly approaching Helsingfors, Vantaa, and Lahti.

At the same time, the Soviets were funding and supporting 'internal rebellions' in several outlying cities and areas, of which they would further their control and influence in Russia. This was a success to an extent because 'armed pro-Soviet militant units' seized control of Kazan, Samara, Saratov, Simbirsk, Voronezh, Volgograd, and Murmansk (along with many towns and villages), and established 'Emergency Soviet Councils' aimed at orienting the cities to Soviet rule. It would take time for the Red Army to enter the cities, however.

With that, the Soviets now controlled the heartland of Russia, and it was from there that they would spread their control to the rest of Russia and, perhaps, the rest of the world.

Though the Sahkuo Khaganate only recieved highly broken transmissions from the region, the people huddled around their radioes in awe of the might of the Soviets, but were not yet confident enough to attempt a transmission.

Petrograd, Russian Soviet Federated Socialist Republic - A new Constitution was unveiled in the Third Party Congress that would set the framework of the government, political, and administrative system in the new RSFSR. Under the new Soviet Constitution, also known as the "Lenin Constitution", workers and peasants were granted broad rights to work, including the right to own land and the like. Extensive freedoms were duly granted to the Russian population under the Soviet regime, as such the right to vote in elections and to participate in local Soviets.

Furthemore, several institution of Government and Republic were created and established as defined by the Third Party Congress:

  • The Supreme Soviet of the RSFSR was to be highest legislative body in the RSFSR. It has the power to elect the Politburo, to form the Soviet government, and to make major Government appointments.
  • The Politburo of the Supreme Soviet is a government body, and thus, was accountable to the Supreme Soviet. It has the power to make, pass, and ratify Soviet law; make appointments and dismissals; to give honors and medals; to declare war in case of hostilities; and to represent the Supreme Soviet, along with many others.
  • The Supreme Court of the RSFSR is the highest judicial body in the RSFSR. It has the power to interpret Soviet law in accordance to the Constitution.

However, the Third Party Congress left much detail to be desired, and the newly-established system was ambiguous at least, leaving the decision-making process -- as well as the relations between the State, people, and leadership -- undefined. However, what the Third Party Congress made clear was, that, a 'supreme security organization' was to be established to safeguard the new Soviet state from its enemies, both external and internal. Thus, a All-Russian Extraordinary Commission for Combating Counter-Revolution and Sabotage was established. With its headquarters in the Winter Palace and led by Feliks Dzezhinsky, the Cheka (as the new organization was abbeviated) was to "uncover and liquidate counterrevolution and sabotage as much as possible", utilizing broad powers to carry out this specific purpose. The Cheka is to be subordinated to the Politburo and accountable to the Supreme Soviet of the RSFSR.

Finally, the ranks of the Red Army was to be extended to over 500,000, and then one million as soon as a conscription system was established in place.

While the Third Party Congress was defining the new political and government system in Petrograd, the Red Army entered and occupied Helsingfors and established a "Soviet of the Finnish Soviet Socialist Republic", the first 'Republic' in the RSFSR. But it didn't stop there; continuing on the advance, Red Army soldiers continued up the Kola Peninsula, eventually occupying the cities of Murmansk and Severomorsk and thus 'reaffirming' Soviet control over the peninsula. Soon, the cities of Archangel and Severodvinsk were captured, also.

In the south, the Red Army reached the borders of Georgia, occupying Volgograd, Astrakhan (and thus gaining access to the Caspian Sea), Krasnodar, Novorossiysk, and Sochi. In the east, the Red Army entered Kazan, Samara, Saratov, Simbirsk, Voronezh, eventually reaching Perm, Ufa, Chelyabinsk, and Ekaterinburg before stopping at the Urals to considate Soviet control over the regions.

It was a success, so far...
