Animosities Unveiled by Lusik
This scenario is a simulation and does not have any political message.
Mission Summary :
May 3rd, 1993
Countries of Moratia and Mercia were part of a united Peoples’ Democratic Republic of Rastavia during long years of the Cold War. But with the fall of the communist block in the Easter Europe the bonds that held several of Rastavian Rublics together began to break loose. Over long years of communism Mercia was exploiting other republics, which was partially driven by economy and partially by historical animosities between the countries, reaching as far as the 16th century.
Old animosities, held back by the oppression on communist rule, started to surface quickly in the early ‘90s and soon separatists movements in each country were growing stronger. Being the biggest country of Rastavia, Marcia was the only only on that wanted to maintain former order. It lacked major natural resources and most importantly, unlike other republics, it was the only one without access to the sea - the primary source of commerce for the country and shipments of natural resources that were so badly needed during the transformation period.
In December last year, Solania, was the first country of the Rastavian Republic to declare independence. The declaration was recognised by the UN and general public opinion in Western Europe. As one may expect, it encouraged other former republics to step on the path to independence. In November elections to Moratian government separatist party gained overwhelming majority in the regional governments and started reforms that were aimed at breaking from the Rastavia. People went our on the streets and occupied major public squares in support of the reforms. In March the governed proclaimed its new constitution and declared independence. Just like Solania, it was supported by the international community and openly condemned by Mercia and other countries of the former communist block.
Soon events started to unfold very quickly. Last month Mercia ordered a general mobilisation in reaction to the “violation of international agreements” , as they called our declaration of independence, and claimed that it was unlawful. Therefore, actions had to be taken to bring back the old order. Our intel discovered that Mecia started moving its mechanised units closer to the border. Today morning all diplomatic means failed and Mercian forces crossed the border. They broke through our foreword outposts quickly and are heading towards the capital.
Excerpts of the battalion commander's (HVAOC 6) orders for...BLUEFOR (D.O.W.)
Our forward reports indicate that 214th Motorized Rifle Battalion is heading our way but there are chances that their were weakened during clashes with our border outposts. Since both countries were part of the same republic before, we have nearly the same equipment. Watch your fire because they use the same units as our army
