((What if I /totally/ incriminated Vlassov?))
The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
I most certainly do not. Your response to this episode makes me wonder just how high up the Red Army chain of command the corruption goes? I was originally content to allow the army to conduct it's own investigation, trusting in the army members of the politburo to competently oversee said investigation. At this point, I am going to have to insist that all involved soldiers and their commanders be turned over to the NKVD for interrogation. What exactly are you trying to hide comrade? I wonder, and I will find out.I am afraid that logic leads me to a contrary conclusion.
If a member of the the Red Army unit escorting the prisoner was the source of the leak then it follows that it would have been easier for the ecape to take place whilst the prisoner was in custody of the Red Army unit when they had control of the situation rather than add the unknown variable of whatever security arrangements may have been put in place by the local NKVD commander.
Secondly, the ease of the escape would point to the conclusion that the local NKVD commander was slack in taking prudent precautions for the protection of the prisoner. Such laxity comes from complacency.
These 2 logical conclusions point to a need for a rigourous review of the NKVD to ensure that we can safely place the safety of the Soviet Union in their hands.
To avoid any collusion by reactionaries hiding in the NKVD, the appropriate course of action would be to hand over the NKVD agents involved in this debacle to the Red Army for interrogation. A report to the Politburo will be sent after those enquiries.
Do you not agree with this logical solution, Comrade Yagoda?
Those units are not in existince yet.Wrong thread ladies
BTW NKVD had its own troops... That is what I remember from HPP's Soviet OOB and I have wikipedia knowledge to back this up
During World War II, NKVD units were used for rear area security, including the deterrence of desertion. At the beginning of the war the NKVD formed 15 rifle divisions, which had expanded by 1945 to 53 divisions and 28 brigades. Though mainly intended for internal security, NKVD divisions were sometimes used in the front-lines, for example during the Battle of Stalingrad and the breakthrough in Crimea. Unlike the Waffen-SS, the NKVD did not field any armored or mechanized units.

Well, Davout's Petrograd error gave me the best point to construct a large scale reactionary network around.What was it, shierholzer, that made you write this?
