A New Nation......

2002 to 2008 - Thousands of descendants of Prussian families travel to Poland, Russia & Lithuania and settle in lands that were formerly East Prussia. Many begin to migrate into that western part of Russia formerly known as Koenigsberg but now called Kaliningrad. A sense of nationalism starts to take hold in these "new Prussians."

Early 2009 - Polish government records indicate that Prussian immigrants are the majority in Gdansk and other areas of East Prussia. Prussian activist groups are starting to form. The National Prussian Party is formed in Gdansk. These groups join with groups in other countries like the Prussian Brotherhood of Latvia, the Prussian Alliance of Lithuania and the Society of Russians for a United Prussia.

Late 2009 - The NPP and other pro-Prussian parties march in the streets in a protest push for a plebiscite on statehood. NPP leaders make secret overtures to the Russian ambassador in Warsaw that if Russia would support Prussian Independence that they would soon find themselves an ally in the against Polish government and their pro-NATO tendencies. Conrad Hekel even goes so far to say that a new Prussia would honor Russia as it once served the Grand Duchy of Moscow in medieval times.

January 3, 2010 - Swayed by the NPP and others, Russia pushes the EU into forcing a vote for Prussian Independence from Poland. German & Polish ministers complain but are eventually forced to concede to a general plebiscite on the issue. The vote is set for January 24th.

January 24, 2010 - In no surprise, the vote for Prussia succeeds and plans are in place to create the new Prussian state within 6 months. An interim government is formed.

January 26, 2010 - Russia announces that they will recognize the will of the Prussian people and formally recognize the new Prussian state and in a gesture of goodwill cede their territory of Kaliningrad to Prussia, within 2 days. Secretly the interimn Prussian government signs a treaty vowing to remain independent from the EU and never to join NATO.

January 28, 2010 - Prussian Independance Day. The Baltic Map is redrawn. The city of Kaliningrad is renamed back to Koenigsberg and becomes the capital of an independent Prussia.
