    Two possible roads here, me thinks :

    - balkanization : Russia encourages the smallest possible states along ethnic/national lines, so it can play one small nation against the other.
    - federation : Russia encourages bigger, multi-national states whose internal fault lines will make their leadership weak and dependent upon Russia.

    A good idea would be to nobble Romania as much as possible, by giving the whole of Moldavia to Russia, the whole of Transylvania to Hungary, and the Bulgarian bits to Bulgaria. Not for any particular reason, but because I feel like it.

    After many months of delaying, I think it's time for a big update.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Chapter II, Section IV: The Guns of the South Caucasus

    As the Russians began assimilating the former Georgian government structures, President Putin began to direct his attention to the other states in Southern Caucasus, specifically the countries of Armenia and Azerbaijan. The two nations have been sparring for a decade, contesting over the Armenian-majority region of Nagorno-Karabakh, and now President Putin saw an opportunity to use the conflict to his advantage. In an speech addressed to the nation, President Putin finally stated that he was going to bring peace to the troubled region by sending in Russian troops. Naturally, the two states refused to even allow Russian troops within a few miles from the border, fearing that the fate of Georgia would soon befall them. In response, President Putin declared war on the last two countries of the Southern Caucasus, hoping to subsume them into the new Russian Empire.


    After the first war with Georgia, Russia goes to war once again.


    25 July, 2005

    The first shots came from Western Azerbaijan, specifically the city of Ganja, as Russian tanks and artillery pounded the city and a division of Azerbaijani soldiers. Within a few hours however, the resistance collapsed and the city was in Russian hands.


    The Battle of Ganja resulted in 1500 dead on both sides, with Russia losing only 60.


    27 July, 2005

    Two days later, a Russian battalion was spotted ten miles west of the Azerbaijani capital. The battalion soon turned into a flood of Russian soldiers ready to take the city. By midday, fearing the worst, thousands of Azeri troops fled the city, with some foreign reports telling of disorganized soldiers fleeing to the Iranian border. With no one to protect the city, Baku with its vital oil fields soon surrendured, with President Heydar Aliyev fleeing by helicopter to Nakhchivan.


    While most soldiers fled, some however fought on. The result was a rout for the Azerbaijani army.

    With most of Azerbaijan's army fleeing to Iran, the Azeri capital was Russian hands once more. The capital of Armenia, Yerevan, would follow just a few hours later.


    10 August, 2005

    As July turned into August, the Armenian government was getting desparate. The Russians had just occupied large areas of Armenia, including Yerevan, its capital. In desparation, the government sent a peace proposal to President Putin, hoping that they might have some sort of independence under Russian influence. But for President Putin, the choice has already been made: The Armenians, like the Azeris, should submit to Russian rule. Like Georgia's peace deal a few weeks ago, it was rejected in a heartbeat.


    President Putin was already hoping that they would fall sooner.


    11 August, 2005

    A day later, the Azerbaijani government sent another peace proposal that was less than the total annexation of Azerbaijan President Putin had demanded. Like the peace deal a day earlier, it was rejected.


    Meanwhile, the President was hoping for the same thing to happen for the Azerbaijanis.


    15 August, 2005

    Having suffered yet another defeat for the joint Azeri-Armenian armies at the Battle of Stepanakert, in the breakaway region of Nagorno-Karabakh, their leaders finally agreed to a Russian-brokered peace offer, which saw both countries integrated into the Russian Empire for the first time since 1991. It was another glorious day in St. Petersburg.


    The Annexation of Armenia and Azerbaijan was a great victory for the Russian Empire and an inspiration for more victories to come


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Meanwhile the United States, and President George W. Bush in particular, expressed its "sheer condemnation of the recent Russian attacks on Armenia and Azerbaijan" with most of its allies agreeing with the U.S., including Poland and Finland. But soon, a tragic event happened on 29 August shifted the President's attention away from the recent invasion and consolidation of the Southern Caucasus.

    That was the day when a powerful Category 3 hurricane dubbed "Hurricane Katrina" made landfall in southeastern Louisiana and most of the Gulf Coast regions of Alabama and Mississippi. The devastation of the major American city of New Orleans however, was beyond comprehension. The hurricane breached many of the levees that was supposed to protect the city from devastating floods. The resulting storm surge reaked havoc across many parts of the city, including the Lower Ninth Ward. The hurricane was one of the deadliest hurricanes to ever strike the United States as well as being the costliest hurricane in American history. Within days after landfall in the Gulf Coast, President Putin sent in aid from across the Russian Empire to help the people of New Orleans.


    A photo of Hurricane Katrina, taken by a Russian Imperial weather satellite just shows the sheer monstrosity of the hurricane itself. In fact, before it made landfall, it was even a Category 5 hurricane, the strongest on record.

    The devastation and flood of New Orleans was beyond anyone's imagination and will impact the city and its citizens for generations to come.




    Secretly however, President Putin was relieved, as it diverted American attention away from his next step in regaining lost Russian pride.

    And it would be where the Americans, the Europeans, and even the Chinese and Iranians never expected.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    And so, concludes my update. Any questions?

    P.S. - About those plans, for Eastern Europe, I'm going to annex Poland, Finland, and the Baltic States, and anything else you can try and plan. However, I need some maps that show it in detail, plus some information regarding Western Europe.

    P.S.S. - The section's title is a pun on an alternate history novel by Harry Turtledove. Can you guess the title and synopsis of the book?

    I said only Poland, Finland an the Baltic States would be included in the New Russian Empire, as well as other places like Mongolia(both Inner and Outer), Afghanistan, Uighuristan, and other yet to be determined. Everything else is anyone's guess as to what countries formed will get what (if formed)

    Ahh, the long awaited update! For Germany, I'd say make Bavaria independent after the Third World War, but other than that I'm not sure. Maybe independence of Brittany after the fall of France.

    You know, I was thinking of setting up a "Celtic Yugoslavia" if war with the EU is declared, but I'm still thinking about it.

    Let's get another update now, shall we?
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Chapter III: The Seeds of Conquest

    The first few months since the rebirth of the Russian Empire had seen wars that ultimately led to the reunification of the South Caucasus with the Empire. It ultimately led to unbridled prosperity in the former Transcaucasian nations never before seen since 1991, as Russia provided aid and industrial benefits to the region. This time, President Putin began to gaze his eyes on a particular target; a nation that would most certainly give Russia an edge in Southeast Asia. For about 110 years, the Philippines had survived as a nation freed from Spanish rule, then ruled jointly with the Americans as a commonwealth. And because of its geography as a tropical nation, all 7,100 islands have warm-water harbors that the Russian Empire and President Putin need desparately. Now, in the wake of the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, the United States, Europe, and China are distracted long enough for Russia to make its move. However, to make his actions seem legitimate, President Putin needed a justification of his plan.

    It eventually came on 15 September, 2005, when five simultaneous explosions occured in Moscow's Domodedovo International Airport. Expolding in the most busiest part of the day, it killed 467 people and injured 824 others. It was the worst terrorist attack in Russian history, eclipsing the hostage crisis in Beslan, North Ossetia-Alania, which killed at least 385 people. Eventually, the FSB concluded that the attack was perpatrated by a small group of Chechen separatists and Islamists called the "Liberation Tigers of Chechnya and Ichkeria (LTCI)", and also revealed that the group had financial, technical, and moral support from the Moro Islamic Liberation Front(MILF) and Abu Sayyaf, which were fighting against the Philippine Government for years. Shortly afterwards, people began clamoring the Russian Government to do something about it.


    The first scenes of one of the bombs exploding in Domodedovo Intl. Airport


    The situation intensified when high-ranking members of the Philippine Government, including Foreign Affairs Secratary Alberto Romulo and President of the Senate Juan Ponce Enrile, denied claims by the FSB and and the Foreign Intelligence Service(SVR) that the Philippines was providing a safe haven for terrorists, citing that it has cooperated with American soldiers in hunting down these Al-Qaeda-sponsored groups around the country. Still, President Putin, working with Foreign Minister Lavrov and Defense Minister Serdyukov, began drafting something that would change the balance of power in Southeast Asia.



    While Manila sleeps, President Putin crafts the bill


    On 1 November, President Putin, in a televised session of the Imperial Duma, released an ultimatum to the Philippine Government to be enforced within 5 days, with refusal meaning war with both nations. The ultimatum reads as follows:


    -Russian Spetsnaz and FSB units are to move freely in the Philippines in a manhunt for suspected terrorists in Southern Mindanao and the Sulu Archipelago
    -Terrorists, real and suspected, caught by said troops are to be tried in special Russian military courts, and the death penalty may be applied
    -The Russian Empire is to have unrestricted access to the warm-water harbors in the Philippines, including the Port of Manila and Subic Bay
    -The Russian Imperial Air Force is to have unrestricted access to Diosdado Macapagal International Airport and all Philippine Air Force bases, as well as the permission to construct an air base adjacent to DMIA.
    -Petron and the Philippine National Oil Company (PNOC) are to be dissolved, with their assests divided between Gazprom and Rosneft
    -Within 90 days of approval, the Philippines is required to pass a series of harsh, Draconian laws designed to protect itself against future terror threats; and
    -Notify the Russian Imperial Government "without delay" of the execution of the measures comprised in the ultimatum



    This ultimatum was seen by some as a way to declare war on the Philippine nation, with some of the terms designed so that the Philippine Government could never really accept. In fact, it was criticized by a host of liberal Russian thinkers. Even Mikhail Gorbachev, the last General Secratary of the USSR, had compared it to the Austro-Hungarian Ultimatum to Serbia, whose refusal led to the First World War. In Manila, the result was obvious.



    The Philippine President also rejected it.


    By a unanimous vote in a joint Congressional meeting, the Philippine Senate and House of Representatives rejected the ultimatum, citing it was "an attack by the Russian Empire against the sovereignty of the Philippine nation, and that President Putin and the Russian Imperial Government needs to reconsider this act". President Putin, however was in no mood to negotiate. On 3 October, 2005, the Russian Empire declared war on the Republic of the Philippines. For the first time in its renewed history, Russia was at war to capture land that wasn't held by the czars or the Soviets.


    The goal is simple: Total Annexation


    For the rest of the world, they will soon learn that Russia will not be ignored anymore.
