Oleg Baklanov Reveals 1991 Attempted Coup
Tashkent, Turkestani SFSR

Image

Oleg Baklanov, the only survivor of the 1991 Crimean Plane crash that killed Vice President Gennady Yanayev and 6 other members of the Soviet government, reveals that the crash was a botched attempted at a coup d'etat against President Gorbachev.

According to Baklanov's testimony, the plan was for Vice President Yanayev and the other 7 members to arrest President Gorbachev and create a committee to "secure stability in the USSR". He was reportedly swooned by Yanayev's hardline stance about Communism.

Balkanov has not been arrested, as the coup attempt was a failure. Former President Gorbachev and current President Lebedev have expressed their disappointment, but Gorbachev has said that "he suspected a plan" and that "a plane visit was strange at that hour".

The first iPhone, declared by some to be the first modern "smart phone" was released in the USSR today.

First unveiled in the United States this Summer, Steve Jobs' project has been called "the phone of the future" by many, and lampooned as "a mess" by its detractors. President Lebedev was seen using the iPhone today, and reportedly has a positive opinion of the new device.

Thousands have already been reportedly ordered, with lines stretching for hours.

Global recession strikes after financial collapse in US; USSR officially "struggling"
Washington, D.C., United States of America

Image

A global economic recession has struck, leaving millions homeless and leaving their finances in ruin.

The hardest-hit countries include the United States, where the recession started, the United Kingdom, who went through a housing crisis in 2007, and the USSR, whose newly free market took the largest hit of the three, dropping almost 7% and unemployment skyrocketing. President Lebedev has signed an economic relief act to help get people back into jobs and help restore the GDP, though it'll be a long time before exports and jobs start helping the economy.

Barack Obama elected 44th President of the United States
Washington, D.C., United States of America

Barack Hussein Obama II has officially been elected President of the United States.

The nation's first black President, many were swayed by Obama's promises of healthcare reform, non-partisanship, and his general charisma, with his supporters and enemies calling him "No-Drama Obama." President Lebedev congratulated President Obama, and many are wondering what the new President will do to help his nation through the recession affecting the world.

In his inaugural address, he quoted the song "Pick Yourself Up" from the musical comedy Swing Time: "...starting today, we must pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and begin again the work of remaking America."

Osama bin Laden killed
Beijing, People's Republic of China

Image

In a Christmas ceremony, Presidents Obama of the US and Lebedev of the USSR have announced the success in a joint mission to kill the leader of Al-Qaida, Osama bin Laden, on the border of Pakistan and Afghanistan.

A joint Spetznaz-Navy SEAL team found Osama bin Laden hiding in Ghazni, a Taliban stronghold after receiving information from an insider in the BBC that he was hiding in the town. Robert James O'Neill, a United States Navy SEAL, claims to have fired the shots that killed Osama bin Laden. Lebedev rejoiced in the announcing of the terrorist leader's death, saying that "it has been proven that nobody will be safe if they threaten the innocent people of the free world," and President Obama said that "Justice has been served."
