ZASTAVA TVOJA I MOJA


Trobojka (Tricolor) is the oldest active newspaper and news platform to exist in the Syncretic Combine, dating back to the 1860s when it was founded as Continental Unity (Kontinentalna Jedinstvo), the official newspaper of synfederalist (synergistic federalist) political parties on the Chevorzebian continent. It was renamed to The Tricolor Daily in 1880, 2 years following the adoption of the Synkomese Tricolor of Black, Blue and Gold, and became the official newspaper of the highly influential League of Combine. Following departizanization in the 1930s the League was disbanded and dissolved with the Tricolor Daily privatized. It was renamed to Trobojka, Tricolor, its current name, in 1956.

Today, headquartered in downtown Cvecagrad in a demonstration of futurist architecture, Trobojka is the ideological mouthpiece of synergistic federalism, with its articles present with a sentiment of support of the ideology, and to an extent a proxy mouthpiece of the Synkomese government as claimed by critics and opponents. It is the bestselling paper in the Synkom A-sphere and is up the lists in the B- and C-spheres. Trobojka covers a multitude of topics from industry to finance to international politics to science and technology. It has a circulation of around 6 million and has editions in Yugoslav, Shetav, Chinese, Spanish, Vietnamese, Arabic, English, Nalkrezic, Cumberlandian, Japanese, Korean as well as other languages with a total of 32 languages served.

SYNKOM CONDEMNS 'UNCONSTITUTIONAL' VISINIAN SECESSION
Majakovsky: [...] the international support for the illegal Visinian action is a conspiracy to weaken the Ceresnian nation [...]

CVECAGRAD, CHEVORZEB - Following the declaration of independence of the state of Visinia and its secession from the Ceresnian republic, the international community has gathered to commend and support the Visinian independence action as a triumph of freedom and liberty. In stark contrast however, the Synkomese government has made a statement condemning the act of Visinian independence as 'unconstitutional' and 'illegal', alongside 'warnings' to nations who have pledged support to Visinia.

Foreign Affairs Administrator Zeljko Majakovsky has stated, in both the communique and at a news conference concerning the situation, that the Visinian independence was proclaimed unilaterally and had not undergone any legal procedures, thereby rendering it as an unlawful and unconstitutional act. Majakovsky also stated that even if Ceresnia was to permit such an act, by all means it should undergo legal procedures required for its recognition as a new sovereign state, and that such an act, without such legal permission, is akin to 'declaring ownership to a house without the title deeds'. The Synkom has stated it will not recognize Visinian independence so long as it continues to be unlawful in nature.

On a more controversial note, Majakovsky has accused the international community of 'a conspiracy to weaken the Ceresnian nation' through their support of Visinian sovereignty. Majakovsky stated that an unconstitutional secession being recognized is a paramount failure of the western liberal democratic movement and is a demonstration of the hypocrisy of the international community. Majakovsky also indicted the nations in support of Visinia to be actually 'in conspiracy to butcher the Ceresnian people' and to 'propagate their own brood, to force their own ideology onto others without regard' while 'extracting local resources and benefits for themselves'. The Synkom has also issued a warning to such states in question on the mentioned grounds.

Visinia declared independence earlier in July, with Radomir Brostkov, a prominent former guerrilla leader, as its proclaimed president. This has been the first time since 1947 any entity attempted separation from the Ceresnian republic and pressure on the matter has built immensely and 'is now higher than ever before', says the Ceresnian President, Bogdan Vostrikov. Thusfar, Ceresnia has deployed its armed forces in a 'full-scale annexation' of Visinian territory in response along with a search for prominent members of the separatist movement.

Nalkrez community protests excavations in Sozvok
Karcist: "This is a blatant lack of regard of our community's own feelings."
Vukinyaon, Kuzenvok - A gathering in the city of Sozvok by Nalkrez followers and adherents protested vehemently against increased archaeological investigations and excavations into the area surrounding the city, where findings on ancient and medieval Nalkrez culture have been made in the past year.

The gathering with some 3,000 demonstrators held signs featuring slogans in both Nalkrezic and common Shetav, as well as some in Yugoslav and English. These included slogans such as 'Stop the Digging' and 'We do not appreciate the publicity of our heritage'. The demonstrators marched through Sozvok's main street and completed the gathering without incident, despite some confrontation at sections between the gatherers and Shetavs in the city.

At a road junction, the rally briefly rested as a local karcist (priest in Nalkrez clergy) and other local activist representatives made speeches on their case against the excavations in Sozvok. Karcist Yezvin, the speaker, claimed that the archaeological excavations were done without the city inhabitants' consent and that the excavations had no regard for the local community's feelings. Activists also spoke against the excavations, claiming them to be lacking legal basis and thus illegal. The speeches were met with applause at their conclusions.

A local Nalkrez adherent (name redacted) was interviewed on the matter, and replied to interviewing reporters of Trobojka: "I don't think the archaeologists should continue digging here. It's directly touching our culture's sensitive parts, which we of course do not appreciate, and I hope some mutual understanding here could allow for the peaceful resolution of this issue."

Archaeologists started excavations in Sozvok's outskirts in the area where ruins of the old city's religious facilities were built in 2015, and have made multiple findings on early and medieval Nalkrezic culture with the unearthing of artifacts such as apparatus used in rituals, art and parts of old buildings. It was met with opposition throughout the whole process, but nevertheless the local government permitted the excavations. Nalkrez adherents traditionally dislike outsiders learning about their community and culture independently and 'without consent', a contributing major factor to the attitude on the situation.

CVECAGRAD, CHEVORZEB - The Synkomese Integrated Armed Forces' office for manpower announced that the SIAF has been expanded by 14 brigades, with Vuohimaa and China-UFR, two B-category member-states, increasing their military contributions to the SIAF recently.

14 brigades have been incorporated into the ranks of the SIAF's Integrated Ground Command, with a total of 61,000 troops added to the SIAF's member count. Of these, 11 are mechanized infantry brigades and the 3 rest are armoured brigades. 6 of the brigades were donated by Vuohimaa and 5 by China-UFR, in addition to the increased focuses on production of military industry for the SIAF in the two states. The remaining 3 are from Consilia and Belotina, respectively, with 1 Consilian brigade and 2 Belotinese brigades. Following their receival ceremonies conducted in their respective countries, the brigades will be transferred to SIAF bases in their states and will be ready for mobilization and deployment anytime as necessary.

Of note is the large efforts and contributions made by the states of Vuohimaa and China-UFR towards the SIAF. China-UFR has took up additional outsourcing contracts for SIAF military industry earlier in late June while Vuohimaa has also opened up more of its military industrial assets for use by the SIAF. In addition to these incorporations, Vuohimaa has donated 2 brigades earlier in 2016, and China-UFR has donated one naval task force to the Integrated Naval Command. Vuohian officer Karle Koponen commented that these increased contributions "show fully our nation's commitment to the security of the Combine as a whole, not just itself or any of its members", while Chinese official Zhu Yang said that "it is an honor [for the UFR] to take more part in efforts of collective security [of the Synkom]."

MUP RAIDS MAFIA HIDEOUT
'Blue Pine' group heavily hit, officials say
Image
Aftermath of MUP raid on 'Blue Pine' group headquarters

Verdansk, Srbica - The Ministry of the Interior (MUP)'s armed elements have raided and destroyed the hideout of a criminal syndicate, the 'Blue Pine' group, located in Zelenjevo, Verdansk State. The raid resulted in 83 dead, of which 80 were members of the Blue Pine criminal syndicate, the rest 3 being MUP personnel killed as a result of collateral damage. 60 members of the syndicate were also arrested and will be up for trials after their hospitalization.

The location of the 'Blue Pine' syndicate's headquarters in Zelenjevo was verified in June when extensive undercover MUP operations in the area confirmed the scope of the group's activity and its key locations. After two weeks of planning, the MUP carried out the raid on the Blue Pine hideout, a building formerly part of a factory in the area. 240 MUP operators, 60 protected vehicles and 10 armoured fighting vehicles were involved in the raid against around 160 syndicate members who were, quite coincidentally, congregating in the hideout in a meeting according to undercover agents at the site.

At 1100 hours local time, three Rodoljub main battle tanks at MUP command fired anti-structure kinetic penetrators onto the building, following which mortar-carriers launched thermobaric and chemical shells through the penetration points. Bombardment of the building continued for another minute, during which armed and armoured agents entered the building and used extensively thermobaric hand grenades against opponents within the building. 20 flamethrower units were then sent into the building to assist with ongoing efforts. Continuous bombardment resulted in heavy structural damage, with sections collapsing as a partial result of chronic lack of maintenance.

By 1150, MUP agents had stormed much of the building. However, miscoordination in communication led to another thermobaric mortar shell being fired, resulting in collateral damage and the death of 3 operatives. At 1214 hours, everal individuals, suspected to be Blue Pine leadership and their entourage, attempted escape from a hidden northern exit. MUP responded with use of flamethrowers and heavy machine gun fire. Despite previous assumptions of heavy reduction in Blue Pine strength and morale, the entourage of the escaping party made themselves difficult opponents for police despite the use of highly lethal weapons. After slaughtering much of the party, an incapacitated but still alive Radovan Jurišić, suspected head of the syndicate, as well as 5 other individuals, were recovered.

At 1230, the entire building was cleansed of Blue Pine members with much of the remnants surrendering. A Synkomese flag was raised above the building as an act of celebration. MUP agents subsequently escorted surviving captives and arrestees outside of the building, which proceeded without any incident or resistance from the arrested individuals. Authorities say the captured criminals will be hospitalized while in detainment and will be turned in for trials on charges and accusations of drug trafficking, smuggling, extortion, murder, possession of unauthorized materials as well as several other charges. An officer commented on the raid being an 'extreme success' for the MUP and Synkomese law enforcement.

Despite the triumph of the law enforcement, many have criticized again the heavy-handed tactics and approaches of the MUP to be a paramount demonstration of police brutality. One civil rights spokesperson denounced the operation as 'callous' and protested the reckless use of military equipment and thermobaric weapons in particular.

The 'Blue Pine' syndicate is a known criminal group of considerable strength based in Verdansk state, but have several operations within the borders of Kuzenvok to the east. Due to a historical lack of law enforcement in Crnotica, as well as rampant mafia activity in the region, the group has been able to survive for prolonged periods of time.

NEW GRAJOYAN FIVE-YEAR PLAN INITIATED AS OLD ONE ENDS
'Success of 2011-2016 plan expected to be repeated as socialist zeal burns ever-intensely in the Democratic Republic', officials say
Image

Tima, Grajoya - The government of the Democratic Republic of Grajoya, the Synkom's token agrarian socialist regime admitted to the Combine during its monarchical days in 1962, has announced the conclusion of the 2011-2016 five year plan and the initiation of the new 2016-2021 five-year plan. Officials claim success of the 2011-2016 plan with multiple areas exceeding production expectation and that the success is expected to last and be repeated in the new plan.

The 2011-2016 plan, which showed increased emphasis in the production of non-essential consumer products such as cleaner products, household appliances and others, was announced and praised by officials as 'paramount demonstration of the growing living standards in our democratic republic'. Armaments production also increased, particularly in the field of high-end equipment such as missiles, radar and communications technology, and was claimed by officials as 'a response of our nation to the growing aggression of reactionaries on the international stage against our ideological brethren [in Bulgaria]', referring to both the Greco-Bulgarian War and the Reorganization War (of which its narrative in the field unwillingly served as another thrust of synfederalism against septakt pseudo-moralism). Overall, production quotas were largely met or exceeded with only 2 districts underperforming but only by small margins. The total gross domestic product generated over the course of the 2011-2016 plan was $1.12 trillion with an average of $280 billion per year, within a nation of 24 million. Domestically produced Grajoyan brands of various products such as bleach and appliances are also being exported to neighbouring Synkomese states as a 'testimony to the quality of our socialist economy's products', officials say.

Newly initiated 2016-2021 plan is intended to continue the production of civilian products while increasing food production by percentage to sustain potentially growing populations. Armaments is also expected to continue in production, particularly high-end military technology, so to allow the Democratic Republic's military to 'gain a technical edge over dangerous reactionaries'. Continued work by the State Laboratory at Colina Negro is expected to produce new, more advanced products for use by the Grajoyan Revolutionary People's Army of Liberation, and also to continue progress on new designs for conventional weaponry. Grajoya expects a debut of its new main battle tank in 2018 and introduction in 2019, and a 'new communication system' to be introduced in 2018. It is expected that the success of the previous plan be repeated 'as socialist zeal burns ever-intensely in the Democratic Republic', the officials say. Raw materials production will be decreased in scale and demand as a surplus has already been built up, but will maintain at a rate.

Grajoya became an agrarian socialist state following its own interpretation of Maoist ideology in 1993 following a revolution against the right-wing military dictatorship that had took over the country in 1984. Following a relatively peaceful introduction with less than 100 executed following the establishment of the regime, the state faced difficulties such as damage from war, economic problems and ideological hostility from other states. Eventually it overcame many of these difficulties and has a growing economy under its currency-absent agrarian system. Grajoya's socialist state signed an agreement with the Synkom in 2009 to maintain its own existence without outside intervention at the terms of no contact with its ideological brethren in the Leftist Agrarian Revolutionary Union such as Bulgar Rouge.

SYNKOM CONDEMNS 'UNCONSTITUTIONAL' VISINIAN SECESSION
Majakovsky: [...] the international support for the illegal Visinian action is a conspiracy to weaken the Ceresnian nation [...]

Tima, Grajoya - The government of the Democratic Republic of Grajoya, the Synkom's token agrarian socialist regime admitted to the Combine during its monarchical days in 1962, has announced the conclusion of the 2011-2016 five year plan and the initiation of the new 2016-2021 five-year plan. Officials claim success of the 2011-2016 plan with multiple areas exceeding production expectation and that the success is expected to last and be repeated in the new plan.

The 2011-2016 plan, which showed increased emphasis in the production of non-essential consumer products such as cleaner products, household appliances and others, was announced and praised by officials as 'paramount demonstration of the growing living standards in our democratic republic'. Armaments production also increased, particularly in the field of high-end equipment such as missiles, radar and communications technology, and was claimed by officials as 'a response of our nation to the growing aggression of reactionaries on the international stage against our ideological brethren [in Bulgaria]', referring to both the Greco-Bulgarian War and the Reorganization War (of which its narrative in the field unwillingly served as another thrust of synfederalism against septakt pseudo-moralism). Overall, production quotas were largely met or exceeded with only 2 districts underperforming but only by small margins. The total gross domestic product generated over the course of the 2011-2016 plan was $1.12 trillion with an average of $280 billion per year, within a nation of 24 million. Domestically produced Grajoyan brands of various products such as bleach and appliances are also being exported to neighbouring Synkomese states as a 'testimony to the quality of our socialist economy's products', officials say.

Newly initiated 2016-2021 plan is intended to continue the production of civilian products while increasing food production by percentage to sustain potentially growing populations. Armaments is also expected to continue in production, particularly high-end military technology, so to allow the Democratic Republic's military to 'gain a technical edge over dangerous reactionaries'. Continued work by the State Laboratory at Colina Negro is expected to produce new, more advanced products for use by the Grajoyan Revolutionary People's Army of Liberation, and also to continue progress on new designs for conventional weaponry. Grajoya expects a debut of its new main battle tank in 2018 and introduction in 2019, and a 'new communication system' to be introduced in 2018. It is expected that the success of the previous plan be repeated 'as socialist zeal burns ever-intensely in the Democratic Republic', the officials say. Raw materials production will be decreased in scale and demand as a surplus has already been built up, but will maintain at a rate.

Grajoya became an agrarian socialist state following its own interpretation of Maoist ideology in 1993 following a revolution against the right-wing military dictatorship that had took over the country in 1984. Following a relatively peaceful introduction with less than 100 executed following the establishment of the regime, the state faced difficulties such as damage from war, economic problems and ideological hostility from other states. Eventually it overcame many of these difficulties and has a growing economy under its currency-absent agrarian system. Grajoya's socialist state signed an agreement with the Synkom in 2009 to maintain its own existence without outside intervention at the terms of no contact with its ideological brethren in the Leftist Agrarian Revolutionary Union such as Bulgar Rouge.

Ding Kangcheng passes away at age of 102
Many mourn death of head engineer of the Synkom's first own ICBM design

Wangping, Jinfang - The prime engineer of the Yaojian-1 project, the Synkom's first ICBM design, Dr. Ding Kangcheng, has passed away in Chuxiong, Jinfang on the 2nd of August at the age of 102. Recognizing the man's role in consolidating the status of the Synkom as a power and reinforcing its inviolable defences, many mourned the man's passing at his funeral in Chuxiong on the 4th of August.

Ding was born in 1914 in Feixi, Jinfang, and attended education on engineering, and studied the then largely theoretical field of rocket science in university. Rudimentary was the curriculum on the field back then with only simple materials derived from scientists working in Jinfang and Srbica and studiers of existing rocket models, Ding was considered the best-learnt of the rocket science students, which factored into his later appointment as head engineer of the Yaojian-1.

Following the successful testing of a fission nuclear weapon in 1954 by the Synkomese military, it was quickly recognized that, in order for the weapons to have any real strategic effect under the circumstances of the time, the development of an intercontinental ballistic delivery platform was necessary to consolidate the Synkom's status as a superpower emergent. Refusal by any ideological power bloc of the time to share their developments led to the project starting off with practically no workable materials other than basic outlines worked on by Srbican, Shetav and various Yugoslav scientific authorities, as well as papers of Chinese and Jinfangese scientists. The team for the development of the Yaojian-1 ('arrow of brightness') was formed in 1958 officially with Ding appointed as its head engineer.

Starting most physical components from scratch, Ding's team toiled endlessly in both physical and mental labor while also having to coordinate with manufacturing units assigned for the project. While the project was given heavy priority, progress was slow, and a workable delivery platform was only finished in 1963 which still did not meet range and load requirements. In 1966, the Yaojian-1 entered a decisive stage of completion with most requirements matched, and in 1968 the project was officially completed with the missile manufactured and equipped with the SIAF. It was also modified to be able to carry thermonuclear and thermobaric loads. Ding continued work on succeeding models of ICBMs all the way into the 1980s, and retired in 1988.

Believing firmly in placing first the ability for the Synkom's defence, Ding dedicated years to the design and construction of the Yaojian. In his own words, "If you do it, you dedicate all to it, all the effort to it. Only in two circumstances may you stop, either when it succeeds, or when you pass away."

LEPEHANTS RAMPAGE SRBICAN VILLAGE
7 humans dead in the latest deadly rampage of lepehants in Travonia

Kamenograd, Srbica - The village of Belja in Nikolje State of Srbica became the site of a deadly rampage of lepehants on 2. September after a herd of lepehants attacked the village without apparent reason. 7 have been confirmed dead, along with 13 injured being treated at the nearest local hospital.

The rampage occurred during mid-day, when large amounts of lepehants gathered around the village and charged into it, ramming into houses and goring villagers that failed to take cover. Larger male elephants were observed to take the lead. The lepehants employed what zoologists in the area call 'sophisticated tactics', they initially caused widespread but mostly superficial damage to human houses with the intention of creating fear. As the villagers were armed with farming tools at best they could not defend themselves against the rampaging horde and many were injured or killed by charging angry lepehants. After this initial stage of intimidation, the lepehants, according to eyewitness accounts, entered the crop fields of the village, as well as communal orchards, and began consuming crops and fruit found. The lepehants were visibly agitated when an angry old man attacked one of them with his sickle, yelling 'jebem ti majku' and other insults at the animals, before being trampled over by larger males.

Following this the lepehants renewed their attacks on the villagers and the village, causing severe damage to one house which collapsed hours after the event. Local police had arrived and had fired tranquilizer darts at the lepehants, but this achieved next to no effect. Policemen were also attacked and injured by the lepehants. Fragile structures such as greenhouse frames were easily destroyed with their supporters uprooted by the lepehants using their trunks. Eventually the police was able to control the situation, establishing a perimeter defended by regrouped units while evacuated villagers were safely relocated behind. The lepehants eventually grew tired and left the village with destruction in their wake, following which the homes were reoccupied by their occupants. Medical patrols nearby had already rushed to the scene treating injured and wounded. 7 were killed, and 13 were injured to the extent of hospitalization.

Zoologist Danica Zelenović says that the lepehant rampage may have been caused by their consumption of berries in the area which have been known to cause intoxication and other effects, particularly the ludmaline, which has often been confused with the Travonian blueberry by wildlife and humans alike. August and September is the traditional fruiting season of the ludmaline which is especially prominent in eastern Travonia. Public security has advised villagers to 'be cautious and alert of surrounding occurrences and contact authorities immediately upon such incursions'.

The lepehant is a medium-to-small sized (relative to its relatives) proboscid that is native to Chevorzeb and is currently spread out in southern Nadavia, where the temperate-to-warm climate suits their species. Believed to be a relative or descendant of the extinct mastodon, lepehants have been both tamed and hunted in ancient times. While their numbers have decreased due to human development in the last century, their conservation status is generally allowing for optimism and are not under serious threats. Lepehant tusks are fragile and unpreservable shortly after removal from a lepehant (or after death), and their meat is considered to 'taste worse than pandas', reducing greatly their value as a target of poaching. The average adult male lepehant is 2 to 2.3 meters tall while the adult female 1.7 to 2 meters.

"UPDATENORTAIN" INITIATED TO INFO-MODERNIZE A COUNTRY
Grand project to 'bring Nortainland out of the dark ages' receives mixed responses
Image
Laptops earmarked for distribution in Nortainland exhibited.

NORTAINLAND - The government of Devernia has announced support for a massive programme, termed 'UpdateNortain', to info-modernize the country of Nortainland, where modern information technology is a rarity of a sight and telephone coverage has not yet reached all households. The programme aims to provide Nortan citizens with means to communicate and access information with modern infotechnology, and to gain access to modern amenities and enjoyments such as automobiles and television. With $1 million poured into the programme, thousands of laptops, TVs, smartphones and other 'symbols of the modern, information-based lifestyle' will be distributed for free to the Nortan populace. Distribution of these products have already started to take place.

While the Nortan government has not yet officially announced its support for the programme (however it is closely observing and taking notes), reactions and responses to it have been mixed so far. Many laud the idea to bring a modern lifestyle and technology to a population free of any charge, but many others have condemned it as an attempt to 'destroy the culture of the Nortan people'. Lord Frenton, a MP of Nortainland, has condemned the programme, saying that it 'does not respect the traditional culture of the Nortan people' and that 'It is utterly reprehensible that a foreign nation [Devernia] should try enforcing their own culture and way of life upon our blessed land'. Harold Russell, professor of Political Science at the Amaranth Academy of Carmini, has also criticized the initiative as 'foolhardy', saying that 'there's no guarantee that they [Nortans] would even accept or want the help' even if there was enough equipment to completely info-modernize the country. Reception among citizens of Devernia has also been mixed as many expressed doubts over prospects of the programme's faring given the conservative nature of the Nortan people.

To this, many Synkomese have also given their thoughts on the matter. Dr. Milan Praljak, professor at Cvećagrad First University, says, "Of course, you can't just force your own lifestyle on someone else. But trying to completely resist any form of change to your culture isn't exactly pragmatic either. The trend comes in this new time that more and more people want to just simply 'freeze' their practices and lifestyle as they are currently, but do not know that such is practically impossible to achieve, in fact with such sentiments you more or less alter the attitude of peoples in itself. I am convinced that Nortans can in fact benefit from more information, it is merely how it is implemented and released to them, which this programme is not safely the answer to but surely worth some observations." Chetnik band leader Ljubiša Goranović comments, "Introducing technology in such an unplanned, uncoordinated manner is definitely not going to achieve what is intended." Another chetnik leader however has expressed heavy doubts on the programme, saying that "even if you are giving them technology, this is not going to work".

Whether or not UpdateNortain will truly elevate Nortainland to the level of the rest of the modern world and achieve its aspirations of 55 million new users of modern technology and entertainment, only time will tell. "It is too early to have any conclusions now," sociologist Hua Minwang says, "the project just started for less than a week, and there hasn't been any meaningful results yet. It will evaluate itself soon enough, though."

Nortainland is a rare example of a country with little access to 'modern' technology in the world; transport - for the wealthy - is limited to horse carriages and to 'public transport' and by foot for the average commoner, while telephones and most electronic devices are only available at libraries in good condition, with many households still using the post for communications.

TROPOLJE-SUTJESKA REFERENDUM ANNOUNCED
Future of the region to be dictated by plebiscite in November
Image
Thousands rally in Treskavica calling for a referendum to re-determine Tropolje-Sutjeska's status

TRESKAVICA, TROPOLJE - The joint government of the region of Tropolje and Sutjeska, a confusing 'simultaneous constituent' of the federal systems of both Khrovatska and Srbica, has announced that a 'public referendum' for all citizens living in the area defined as legal constituents of the state will be held in November of this year to determine the state's political and legal future. The referendum will be legally binding and both governments of Khrovatska and Srbica have promised and assured the implementation of procedures according to the outcome of the plebiscite, according to spokespersons of governmental bodies in the news conference where the decision was announced.

Representatives for the governments of Khrovatska, Khrovatskan Tropolje, Srbica and Srbican Tropolje announced the decision at a news conference on 14 October, saying that, after negotiations and deliberations between the four governments concerned, they have agreed to allow for a public referendum for the citizens of Tropolje to determine the future of their region by 'open, transparent, popular vote' which will be assured of the results' implementation as according to popular will. "It has been nearly two decades of this awful 'simultaneous constituent' thing. We in Zabregom don't like it, the people of Tropolje-Sutjeska don't like it, and Uzvodnin doesn't like it either. So instead of an arbitrary decision we will change for asking the people of the region for once, to let them determine their own future. This entire thing [status created by October Agreement] is absurd and shouldn't even be something in our great Combine to begin with, it is time to end this with decisive exercise of popular will," says the Khrovat government's spokesperson. The other governments have expressed similar sentiments, believing the state created by the October Agreement to be a 'bureaucratic atrocity'. "It benefited no one," said the Srbican spokesperson.

Tropoljak nationalists have expressed positive sentiments towards the decision. "It is time for us to take this into our people's own hands," said Party of National Action (Stranke Nacionalne Akcije) spokesperson Izet Zlatanić. Tropoljean and Tropoljak nationalists are believed to place great hope in the referendum re-enabling Tropoljak independence as a sovereign state. It has been admitted part of the decision was out of pressure from repeated demonstrations of Tropoljeans recently calling for a 'democratic plebiscite' on the status of Tropolje, and with this many public political gatherings and rallies have transformed into celebrations as Tropoljeans vest hope in regaining independence.

Concerns over the plebiscite have been expressed by other groups, in particular Tropoljean Serbs and Khrovats. Several groups are concerned that the referendum could be used to the Tropoljak people's advantage, creating a 'Tropoljak ethnostate' at the expense of the welfare of the other peoples living in the area. Others are concerned that the voter base could become radically factionalized and some even fear a 'second Tropoljean war' over the referendum.

Following the defeat of the Tropoljean state in the Tropoljean war of the 1990s, the 1998 October Agreement, which ended the war, agreed upon Tropolje becoming a 'simultaneous constituent', essentially partition, in which, while existing as a recognized nation and region, the state was split and administered by two countries, Khrovatska and Srbica, respectively, under their own regional federal governments. This system has received widespread criticism and over the years many attempts were made to redetermine status of Tropoljean sovereignty.

SIAF-INC NAVAL EXERCISE BEGINS IN SOUTH CONSILIAN SEA
'Mass carrier hunt' on the drill list again
Image

NYSFORD, CONSILIA - The Integrated Naval Command of the Synkomese Integrated Armed Forces has held an exercise in the South Consilian Sea, training 'awareness and readiness'. The exercise will last 10 days, and involves 20 vessels large and small from the INC. Multiple forms and drills of naval combat will be simulated, including submarine warfare and long-range surface engagements, as well as 'mass carrier hunts' involving mobile, fast attack units showing off against carrier battle groups. The exercise has officially begun on October 27.

The exercise was announced three days before on October 24 to the public, when a INC spokesperson at a news conference provided reporters with general information of the exercise, including the location and approximate size of contingent involved. Announcements involving such an exercise were also posted on SIAF and INC official websites, as well as websites of tourist agencies of Consilia and regional government pages. The details and specific drills were not disclosed until the 27th when the exercise started, during which simultaneously with the start of the drill naval officers responded to reporter questions, confirming, denying or dismissing inquiries and guesses as well as making clarifications.

Taking place in the South Consilian Sea 15 km from shore, the drill is mainly focused on open-water combat between surface and subsurface vessels, with the arrangement of opposing teams and contingents speculated to be simulated navies of 'great powers' the Synkom may face off in the near future. 20 vessels are involved in the exercise, an impressive count, including 7 destroyers, 5 frigates, 1 aircraft carrier, 2 amphibious assault ships, 1 supply ship and 4 attack submarines. Notable vessel types involved include the SynRM-11 guided missile destroyer, the Zaporozhian-class aircraft carrier, the SynFM-27 stealth frigate and the Vardar-class fast attack submarine. The contingent will run through trial runs and simulated missions which will test and sharpen the INC's various factors and qualities that will enable their success in actual combat. Simulated missions include long-range surface combat, anti-submarine warfare, 'carrier group hunting' and amphibious assault/landing breakthroughs, though this is said to not be the full list. Experimentation with tactics, strategies, theories and testing of weapons, sensors and vessel performance will take place during the great exercise.

Analysts have raised hypotheses and questions concerning the identity of the opposing force in this drill. To this, spokespersons claimed that the opposing force 'was not any particular state', though from observations so far, according to analysts, the OPFOR has organized and operated based on a syncretism of Victorialan and Kustburger naval doctrines, leading to hypotheses that this exercise simulates combat against superstates expansive in power. The SIAF has denied claims of any particular state being the simulated opposing force, stating that 'it is only a trial of combat against navies of regionally, or globally, considerably influential powers'.

TANG YIPU: 'REASSERT CHINESE SOVEREIGNTY' OVER NANHAI ISLANDS
Aspiring nationalist-camp presidential candidate unreserved about tough stances
Image

WUHAN, HUBEI - Tang Yipu, an aspiring presidential candidate campaigning as nominee of the nationalist-camp of China-UFR's choice for the upcoming elections in February, has announced recently at a campaign rally in Wuhan that he will 'reassert Chinese sovereignty over the South China Sea islands', which he insists are 'being illegally and silently exploited by neighbouring countries' without 'consent of the Chinese people'.

Tang, at the rally, spoke to his supporters and other attendees on his stances on various issues concerning China-UFR's interests relevant at the moment, many of which concerned relations with other neighbouring countries, as well as status of association with the Syncretic Combine and as signatory of the Cvecagrad Accords. His highlights on the topic were his views and statements on the issue of the South China Sea/Nanhai islands, on which he claimed the legitimacy of the Nine Dash Line, the constitutional claim laid to the islands since China-UFR's founding and even before, but whose pursuit and realization of full sovereign control has since been pushed aside in favor of cooperation with the Philippine UR due to the two states' association with the superstates of the Synkom and Victoriala, respectively. On this matter, Tang spoke, "We have opened to our neighbours, which is a good thing, we have furthered trade and ties with them, a good thing I will not and will never deny, but the problem is, we are selling our sovereignty for this, we allow them to occupy our islands and shoals, plant their flags on them, just so we can ship goods to their countries. It is not worth it, and will never be."

Tang's tone turned tough following this. "No one, not the founding fathers of our Republic, not the architects of the Federation, not anyone, will agree to trading our sovereignty, our claims backed by history, for simple, material gains, or appeasement of neighbours. No one. It's a real problem. Frankly, we are being silent, we are the victims, our vast wealth in that region being used by others, but I will change that, we will change that. I promise that I will make moves towards the reassertion of Chinese sovereignty over the Nanhai islands. By council...or by force, we will, get our islands back." Applause sounded from the audience, before Tang continued. "We will not sit by as our land, it is historically ours, our people sailed them before anyone laid claims to them, it's constitutionally ours - you can check maps and documents concerning our territories back from 1912, and it is, from a just point of view, ours, to be illegally, and silently, exploited by our neighbours. If that happens, we won't want these neighbours, because no one wants a neighbour that steals from you, that occupies what is yours. They do it, without consent of the Chinese people."

Tang Yipu's stances and platform on territorial disputes and diplomacy have since generated positive feedback from the nationalist camp of parties in China-UFR's political scene. Many nationalist and even conservative and republican camp voters are considering Tang as their candidate of choice. "We need someone like him, who can speak out, to do what everyone else has been silent all about," says an anonymous citizen. However, many, especially the 'old guard' of the nationalist and republican blocs, disapprove and are skeptical of this, believing that Tang is a "dangerous populist", and that he could be orienting the nation towards "irrational action". "The only real reason why Tang is supposedly in the lead is that he says what people want to hear. This is not right. The people need what is right. I hope everyone can form an informed opinion and consider again their choices for this man, who, frankly has nothing but recycled nationalist rhetoric." says Kuomintang spokesperson Hu Weiqin.

183 DEAD IN DEMONSTRATION-TURNED-VIOLENT IN TRESKAVICA
Unhealed wounds of the Tropoljean War torn open again just before November Plebiscite
Image
Aftermath of the deadly incident

TRESKAVICA, TROPOLJE - A mass demonstration by supporters of redetermination of the status of Tropolje-Sutjeska, including Tropoljak nationalists and supporters of the Party of National Action, turned deadly and violent after Serb and Khrovat counter-protestors attacked the demonstrators and had apparently made use of military-grade weapons. The Ministry of the Interior (MUP) was forced to mobilize main battle tanks to clear the Martyrs' Square in downtown Treskavica where the incident occurred, resulting in 183 dead and around 3,500 injured to extent of hospitalization. The incident, occurring a mere 4 days before the start of the Tropoljean Plebiscite scheduled this month on November 10th, has raised fears and concerns over the region's future even if the voting was to proceed.

In the afternoon of November 5, about 8,000 people rallied in the Martyrs' Square of central Treskavica in a rally and demonstration showing support for the redetermination of status of Tropoljean sovereignty in the upcoming region-wide plebiscite which will be legally effective. The crowd waved flags of Tropolje-Sutjeska (the golden rivers flag) and chanted nationalist slogans. However, at around 3:28 PM, a counter-rally of around 5,000 Serbs and 4,000 Khrovats gathered outside the square, countering the actions of the Tropoljean rally with broadcast of nationalist music and voice-wrestling of slogans and songs. In response, the slogans of those in the Tropoljean rally became directed towards the Serb and Khrovat groups in Tropolje with chants such as "Srbe na vrbe" sparking outrage from the Serb rally. Armed with various weapons, the Serb counter-rally attacked the Tropoljean gathering, which was countered with equally vicious force, joined by Khrovats.

While the majority of the armed protestors and demonstrators were equipped with mere bricks, sticks and fists, organized teams and squads of firearm-wielding 'executioners', as they were called in Chevorzebian protest culture, emerged from both sides, most of which used legal semi-automatic, selective-fire rifles or pistols firing actual cartridges on opposing crowds. Some had tuned their weapons to automatic mode, exacerbating the conflict. The density of the crowd had somewhat reduced the effectiveness of firearms, along with the skill of their operators factoring in to the relatively benign state of the initial clash. However, the violence had soon turned the square into a bloodbath as demonstrators and counter-protestors striked at each other with whatever available, from knives to maces to the butts of their rifles. The police had attempted to intervene with no avail, and they were instead attacked by the protestors as their vehicles had to go through the crowd to arrive at the area. A detachment of 30 policemen and women were sent to the square to control the situation, but were attacked when they attempted to control protestors and 4 were killed and another 10 injured. Protestors had soon rolled out in vehicles, such as pickup trucks, on which they opened fire at each other while ramming through opposing protestors. The death toll reached 90 by 5:14 PM.

Despite intervention of armed and armoured police there were no signs of the clash dying down, and many members of law enforcement themselves found themselves in sticky situations sandwiched between frenzied, armed demonstrators. The repeated refusal of the people in the square to comply with demands of law enforcement had validated to the MUP that an armed solution had to be sought, and at 5:40 PM, armoured vehicles and reinforced gendarmerie were sent to 'completely pacify the situation', while death tolls continued to rise to 150 with increased brutalization of tactics. The MUP had attacked swiftly, arriving at 6:19 PM, using scatterguns to blast rubber bullets and water cannons to disperse protestors at frightening rates. However, to fully clear the area, military-grade munitions were used. It has been alleged that incendiary munitions were used to disperse protestors. By 6:51 PM it was announced that the incident had ended, with thousands of demonstrators rounded up and arrested or hospitalized. 183 were identified dead, 9 of which were members of law enforcement. The square was devastated from the aftermath of the incident.

The clash's ethnic nature has led to debate and discussion over the future of Tropolje even if it was able to redetermine its state of sovereignty as a fully independent state. Pan-Tropoljean Party's Masha Zindović said she was "heartbroken" over the incident, stating that it was "sad that such conflicts still arise nearly twenty years after the war's conclusion" and "could heavily hinder the future of Tropolje if not taken care of". Party of National Action spokesperson Izet Zlatanić, suffering from a half-burnt arm due to molotov cocktails thrown during the incident, said that "the fact that this incident was sparked not by us but by our opponents shows who truly wishes ill upon Tropoljeans", subtly directing the statement at pro-Serb and pro-Khrovat politicians. Others have criticized the MUP's heavy-handed measures in response of the incident, branding it as a "blatant case of unapologetic police brutality".

NIEUWSATS, HERTOGENLAND, GRENSTAAL - Protests and demonstrations have emerged in Hertogenland, a region consisting 2 provinces of Grenstaal (Ronver and Pelsland), calling for independence and secession of the region, with some demanding incorporation and 'reunification' with Walhonia. While mainly centred in Nieuwsats, the largest city of the region and provincial capital of Ronver, protests of different scales have occurred in other cities and towns of Hertogenland.

The protests started on the night of November 7, when around 200 ethnic Walhonians gathered at a road junction in Nieuwsats, calling for independence and secession from Grenstaal. Among the gatherers were Julian Freriks, leader of the controversial National Movement, a separatist and secessionist Hertogenlander party. Julian made a speech on a platform made of sandbags, claiming that the Grenstaalian government has continuously refused to regard rights and wellbeing of minority peoples in the country, 'oppressing' the Walhonian majority in Hertogenland and refusing to listen to their voices. Freriks sparked excitement in the crowd with his speech, with many chanting slogans such as "Hertogenland is Walhonia" and "Freedom to Hertogenland". The following morning, an even larger gathering assembled at the same road junction, with some 2,000 attending. Police attempted to disperse protestors but with no avail.

Accusations of the supposed oppressiveness of the Grenstaalian government were made by Freriks and other speakers, and on many occasions they pointed directly towards onlooking squads of police, inciting anti-government sentiment. This was followed by demands chanted and shouted loudly that Hertogenland should become independent or be annexed by Walhonia. Flags of both Walhonia and a proposed 'Free Hertogenland' were waved while protestors sang traditional Hertogenlander songs in celebration of their identity. The rally refused to disperse until 5:10 PM when police enforced the breakdown of the rally, which resulted in harsh response from the demonstrators and the arrest of some 10 protesting students and workers and injury of 8 individuals.

Similar rallies had also been organized in other cities of Hertogenland on the same day. In Ronstad, Steen and Klifsjen, rallies of similar content and message were held with a total of 1,800 attending protestors. Via social media the National Movement and other Walhonian nationalist parties broadcasted their message demanding a free or Walhonian Hertogenland with hashtags such as #HertogenlandIsWalhonia.

Hertogenland is a region encompassing two provinces of Grenstaal, located northwest of the country. It has a ethnic Walhonian majority in the population of around 73% or 1.8 million out of 2.47 million inhabitants of Hertogenland and 13.72 million Grenstaalians. Since the 1970s a movement to establish a free or Walhonian Hertogenland, aimed at championing interests of the Walhonian people in the region, has campaigned enthusiastically.
