RUSSIA TIMELINE
2006 Russian forces intervene in Belarus, responding to international pressure against the Belarus dictatorship’s attacks on Poland and the Baltic States.
2009 The Sovereign American Indian Movement (SAIM) seizes an American nuclear missile silo and launches a missile at Smolensk, but no nuclear detonation results. Russian president Nikolai Chelenko closes Vladivostok, Rostov and other strategic cities to civilian traffic in preparation for possible military action.
2012 An earthquake severs the Kamchatka peninsula from the mainland by creating a kilometer-wide channel.
2016 President Chelenko is assassinated, during a three-week period in which the leaders of the United States, Great Britain and Israel are picked off as well. MVD forces kill Chelenko’s assassin during a violent confrontation. News reports later paint the assassin as delusional, but conspiracy theories abound.

2026 Boris Kropunin becomes General Secretary.
2030–31 Indigenous forces assisted by shapeshifters take over the autonomous region of Yakut, declaring independence from Russia. Interior Army forces fail to retake the territory.
2031–33 Euro Wars I. Russian forces invade Poland and drive into East Germany before being halted by the Nightwraith air strike.
2034 Euro Wars II. Alliance for Allah forces drive north through Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia. Russia redeploys forces in Eastern Europe southward into the Caucasus Mountains. The AfA drive stalls following the assassination of mullah Sayid Jazrir.
