STOP THE PRESSES!

BLOG OWNER: Fellow wargamers.  Due to the current events in geopolitics I cannot, FOR THE TIME BEING, continue to portray my former Soviet Oblast as a close ally of Russia.  While I have no personal problem with the Russian reconquest of Crimea, I do have objections to their current operations in Eastern Ukraine.  In other words since there does exist, however remote a chance that NATO could come to blows with Russia in the near future. I must put the Pro-Russian parts of my 6mm Republic away, temporarily. I don't have a problem gaming cold war gone hot scenarios as it is not current.  I don't mind the fact that a new "Cold War" could or has come about, I grew up in one and the world seemed much more stable at that time, however insane that may sound, and once the Ukraine situation resolves perhaps we can resume.

INSTEAD: Attention will now turn to the Prussian Defense Forces operations in Southwest Africa and Baltic Europe until such time that "The 6mm Republic of Prussia" can again take up arms with their Russian comrades in Karakistan.

Prussian Government Endorses Russian Annexation

Koenigsberg (AP):  The Prussian National Assembly today passed a bill in support of the Russian annexation of the Crimea.  News of the endorsement comes as no surprise in the West since Russia is the closest ally and main benefactor of the Heinleinist republic.  A Prussian minister of Russian descent from the town of Cranz remarked that this is great news not only for Russia but for all the Commonwealth.

In other news Gazprom announced a reduction in the price of gas sold to Prussia.  Gazprom provides energy supplies for the Prussian Army serving in Karakistan.  Gazprom owns several petrol stations operating in Prussia and announced a lowering of gasoline prices there as well.
