The War on Micronational Communism, officially named Operation Leningrad-II by the Erusian National Communist Party, was declared by the Democratic People's Republic of Erusia on the Kingdom of Murrayfield June 22, 2009. The war began when the Democratic People's Republic unilaterally declared a state of conflict between the two states in the aftermath of the Murrayfield Civil War, which saw the end of Communist rule in that micronation. A unilateral ceasefire was declared by Erusia on June 23 and matched by Murrayfield almost immediately after - the war itself is ongoing, and both sides have made it clear that the mutual ceasefire is a de facto one and will not apply to allies joining the war. Late on June 23 both POHMB, People's Republic of Yongheng, and Sandefreistikhan entered the war - so far, POHMB, their allies, and Sandefreistikhan are the only micronations not abiding by the terms of the ceasefire. Sandefreistikhan will not abide due to the reason that this is a personal war for them.
On June 23, the Erusian government acquired evidence that the entire war head been staged by nations such as Camuria, POHMB and Althacia in order to destroy Erusia. Please see War over Micronational Communism/Erusian Intelligence for the record. The war between Murrayfield and Erusia came to an official conclusion on June 25, with the restoration of the Communist government in Murrayfield. Shortly after, Murrayfield joined the war on the side of Erusia and her allies.
Beginning of conflict
Erusian declaration of war
On June 23, 2009, the Central Committee of the Erusian National Communist Party formally condemned Ben Lawson and the former Murrayfield communist party as "counter-revolutionaries who... have seriously threatened the stability of the micronational socialist movement" and declared war on the new Kingdom of Murrayfield.
Murrayfield declaration of war
Shortly after the Erusian declaration, King Benjamin I of Murrayfield responded with a declaration of war on Erusia, restating the advice of Chancellor Metatorik of POMHB, who said, "Communism doesn't work."
UEP declares war
On 23 June 2009, the United Empire of POMHB officially declares war on Erusia and put the IRPA on full alert. Chancellor Metatorik is the one who issued the declaration of war and he is strongly supported by EVERY member of the Imperial and Royal POMHBese Government. Emperor Timmotorik I has issued an order stating that communism is "evil and must be obliterated". The POMHbese are very enthusiastic about fighting against the communist Erusia. The UEP's allies (Grand Duchy of Sachsen-Mura, Principality of Lwaii , and Principality of New Ribonia) have been brought into the conflict on the POMHBese side (see: Unterkassel Alliance). Until they POMHB declared war, the conflict had come to a temporary halt as the two sides actively worked to negotiate - as such, POMHB is directly responsible for the resumption of hositilities. Given past assurances by POHMB's predecessor that they were committed to neutrality, the declaration of war has been seen as a "childish and hypocrtiical move by a group of warmongering fools". In response, the People's Republic of Yongheng joined the war to support Erusia.
Response of the Baltian Sector
On 23 June 2008 the Cheslovian Federation joined the war in support of Erusia, but also because of past treaties signed. Almost immediately after declaring war, the Cheslovian Federal government ordered the mass conscription of 30 Cheslovian citizens. Malokaz joined the war in support of Cheslovia. The BCSA is considering bringing Ud Mahazar into the war, through negotiations to be held soon.
Sandefreistikhan declares War
On 23 June 2009, the Grand Lamate of Sandefreistikhan officially declares war on the POMHB, Sachsen-Mura, Lwaii, and New Ribonia. Though Sandefreistikhan had declared war on Iran the day earlier, they still declared war on the anti-Communist belligerents. In a correspondence to the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Cheslovian Federation, HM Guillaume le Premier stated that the Communist War will take a higher priority to the Defense Forces of Sandefreistikhan.
Chancellor Metatorik has, on 23 June 2009, issued declarations of war against the People's Republic of Yongheng, Cheslovia, Malokaz, and Sandefreistikhan. When asked about the war, Metatorik stated: "I hate nations who think that they can force their beliefs on other nations by declaring war on them in order to force them to change for the worse. We (the UEP an allies) are here to defend Murrayfield's right to choose it's own government."
Sandefreistikhan condemns the UEP and places sanctions
His Majesty Guillaume le Premier condemned the UEP for "placing harsh laws on all Communists in the UEP" calling the act "discriminatory" and hurtful. He also continued to state that such actions will hurt future Sandefreistikhan-UEP relations. At 19:07 ST, the Lama also declared sanctions on the UEP. All trading between the UEP and Sandefreistikhan must end, as well as all formal talks, treaties, and alliances will be terminated and be put on hold, and that the UEP will not be recognised by Sandefreistikhan.
On June 23/24 the Republic Guard, the security service of the Erusian government, received information from Murrayfield that the "Micronational Advise (sic) Bureau" had convinced them to abandon Communism and form a new government. This information came following the first round of peace talks between the Erusian and Murrayfield leaders. Murrayfield blamed the Bureau for the war and said he strongly suspected that this had been their plan all along, with the two leaders coming to the conclusion the Bureau was likely a front for POHMB and her ilk. Shortly thereafter the Republican Guard launched an intelligence operation against the Bureau and, with his consent, posed as Itakur Kiwal offering to launch a counter-revolution. The conversation record is available on MicroWiki and both POHMB and the Bureau were immediately banned pending discussion.
On 23 June 2009, at around 20:30 ST, the Tupolev Tu-95 "Bear" of the Sandefreistikhan Air Defense Force (Fr: Force défense aérienne) ordered and launched Training bombing raids over the Kingdom of Murrayfeild and the UEP. Lama Guillaume le Premier declared the training raids a "success" and ordered the Tu-95 back to Aimer ADFoSB.
Murrayfield condemns Sandefreistikhan training bombing raids
King Ben I of Murrayfield condemns Sandefreistikhan for launching training raids over Murrayfield as only escalating tensions during these delicate talks and ceasefire. He calls on them not to increase tensions and hostilities by doing such acts.
Sandefreistikhan seeks entrance to Peace Negotiations
His Majesty Guillaume le Premier, in reply to Murrayfeild-Erusian peace talks, has asked to be admitted to the talks and investigate on the purpose for the war. He continues to state that Sandefreistikhan shall make the Micronational War on Communism a lower priority, and making the Sandefreistkhan-Iran Neda War the higher priority. He also seeks peace talks with Murrayfeild, as Erusia has declared an end to fighting.
Murrayfield Returns to communism and switches sides
On 25th of june 2009 Murrayfield returned to communism aftyer discovering the Micronational advise bureau was a sham run by Camuria and her allies who had manipulated him into abandoning it in the first place. Murrayfield quickly made peace with Erusia and joined the pro communism side vowing to continue the fight against these imposters and terrorists whos only goal is to cause tension and violence in the micronational community.
New Europe Declares War
On 26 June 2009 the Empire of New Europe declared war on all Anti-Communist belligerents. For many this comes as quite the shock due to the "Cold War" between Erusia and New Europe. Many believed New Europe would never fight for a communist state. But the Kaiser made this statement. "It is much against New European interests that Erusia should be defeated. For the sake of imperial and ideological security, New Europe enters this war to protect this micronational community from intollerance and inexcusable reasons for lies and war." (original statement made in German)
End of War
Sandefreistikhan asks for Forgiveness from Murrayfield
On 26 June 2009, after arriving in Drummondville, Québec during His Stately Tour of La Provende du Québec, His Majesty Guillaume le Premier of Sandefreistikhan asked for forgiveness from the people and government of Murrayfeild, stating that "Now that our people are of the same mass, I must appoligise for an act made upon my behalf. This act was the 23 June 2009 Training Excersizes which crossed over Murrayfeild Airspace and conducted several military maneuvers. Sandefreistikhan, though defending her actions used during times for war, asks for forgiveness from the people of Murrayfeild and we, the people of Sandefreistikhan, sincerely hope to be able to work with and enjoy friendly relations with the people of Murrayfeild."
