You are someone who carries the support of not only President Putin, but the entire Pacific Alliance. Castro was a stupid man, bent on conquest, but his successor this..." Pershing listens keenly, but Shkrebneva smiles, "is something Okhrana will keep to itself. What I want to talk to you about is, what is the Pacific Alliance willing to do" <she holds up a Datacard (OTL USB Key)> "for the answer to the Pacific Alliance's most asked question 'What is GHOST?' You have 20 minutes to make your proposal". Pershing crosses her arms, "I predicate any answer I may give under the condition that the information is both accurate and useful, and of course checking the information for authenticity"
Shkrebneva quirks an eyebrow, "No platitudes?" Pershing smirks, "You desire substance more then anything else. The relaxation of the tariffs on Russian plastics, the Pacific Alliance forgiving 350 billion rubles worth of your national debt, and our neutrality regarding Narusegawa and Hongzhi China."
Shkrebneva shakes her head, and places the datacard on the table "No. 18 minutes left "
Pershing sighes, "No on what points?"
Shkrebneva smirks, "Let's see that Stanford educated brain of yours jump through hoops."
Pershing considers for a moment, then a thought strikes her, "Why me? Out of the entire Diplomatic corps of the Pacific Alliance, the Council, and the various foreign secretaries, why me?"
"Perhaps I wanted to meet the next president."
Pershing shakes her head, "No, there's more to it then that. I suspect that you were involved with Argentina and know far more about Argentina's plans and intel then we do."
Shkrebneva adopted a look of mock outrage, "Is the Pacific Alliance accusing me of collaborating with one of its enemies"
Pershing smiled, "Of course not, I am just a senator. Of course I did visit Brussels and Baghdad, on President Putin's behest to gain a coalition"
Shkrebneva frowned "I am quite certain that many parties were angered with you that day."
"It's moot, since Argentina started to occupy Central America, a difficult position, one that you know was unlikely to supply, and difficult to hold." Pershing paused "Will you honestly answer two questions I am about to ask?"
Shkrebneva checks her watch, "16 minutes." See that was all the response she would get, Pershing proceeded.
"What does the Russian Empire want."
"To be the leading economic and military superpower, and be the most powerful nation in Asia."
Pershing nodded, "... and what do you want?"
Shkrebneva simply said, "To win."
Pershing considered for a moment. "I will maintain my previous offer, an offer Russia wants, but not what you want. I propose we play a game of Chess. If I win, you give the Datacard detailing GHOST free of charge. If you win, the deal will stand."
Shkrebneva scoffs "Not much incentive for me."
Pershing smiles, "...Except the satisfaction of knowing that you have beaten the one who outmanuevered your finest diplomats in Brussels and Baghdad"
Shkrebneva considers, then calls for her staff to prepare a board. "Very well Senator Pershing. We have a deal, no digital aids, just our wits and no timelimit. Neither one of us may leave these chairs until checkmate, or one concedes."
The game persisted for 8 hours. At turn 47 it was the end game, and the game was still close. But Pershing stumbled and lost her rook. In 4 more turns Shkrebneva had won. The agreement was reached, and signed by Shkrebneva as PM of the Russian Empire, and Ashley Pershing Appointed Diplomat of the Pacific Alliance to the Russian Empire. Once Pershing leaves with the Datacard, Shkrebneva once more visited the terrace where they played, and is surprised to see two house staff trying to clean Pershing's side of the table. Shkrebneva shoves them asides and sees the following etched into the wood.
47.Qc7+ (or Qd7+)
Shkrebneva utters a storm of profanities, at how Pershing took a dive just for the datacard, and the insult of intentionally losing to her. On the suborbital ride back to DC Pershing writes in her journal, "I don't like to lose either, but I think I won overall. The Pacific Alliance council won't necessarily like it, but for GHOST they would sell Hokkaido."
In Thomas K. Winthrop's Diplomatic History of the World: 2000-2050 published in 2052, he would write, "What Pershing did was nothing short of remarkable at that Chess game. For the first time since Shkrebneva's rise to power, her goals and the goals of Russia were in opposition."
<If anyone is wondering about the plausibility of the above match, I would point out this event from our timeline. The Soviet Union, who were years behind us in jet technology, won a shipment of Jet Engines from Rolls Royce, by winning a game of Billiards with Clement Attlee. Oh and if anyone is curious the chess move Pershing used is what Deep Blue would have countered with if Kasparov made a different move in game 2 in 1997>

Semtember 27, 2028: Secretary Putin breaks his long silence by giving an interview to TIME magazine. In it, Putin says nothing about Heath, but rather, he chews Cheadle out on his naive remarks about the Great American War.
"Mr. Cheadle claims that he would have kept forcing our boys to the bitter end. That is an ignorant claim. Had we forced our comrades to march to Buenos Aires, we would have lost at least three million men. Argentina was becoming a desperate animal, and desperate animals will do anything to survive. I was informed that they were under the mindset that we were attempting to reduce their country to a nuclear waste land, so they were very much becoming this desperate animal.
"Argentina took about fifty million lives with its "limited war" policies, and they still had plenty of fight in them. What if they simply stopped following what little internation law they were following and blew Nicaragua, Coast Rica, and Panama to fine ashes? How more Medinas and Mexico Cities would there have been? How much longer would that war have taken? How many more Nicaragua Massacre's would there have been? How much more of Brazil would have burned? How much more would have Latin America lost? Eventually, Castro's madmen would have dumped everything in their nuclear arsenal on the United States and the Pacific Alliance.
"Unless every other world power had joined our cause, reducing Argentina to a state where it would never harm us again would have taken years and probably several million lives. It could not have been done without serious consequences. The man in charge now is at least a decent man. We did far more by working with the Argentinans to take down Castro's cult of killers then we would have by reducing their country to fine dust. President Pershing saved potentially half a billion lives with her diplomacy, and we now watch Argentina like a hawk, which the Pacific Alliance as a whole failed to during the 2010s.
"What Mr. Cheadle says is indeed an ignorant dream. Yes, we could have reduced Argentina to nothing, but had we done so, we would be living in an era of chaos that would make the Gates Recession look very nice."
September 28, 2028: Putin's comments are very well received (with the exceptions of the obvious radicals) and help shift the political landscape.

Also on this day, At a massive Socialist rally in Alaska, Candiate Bernie Sanders, Governor Dimitri Mendelev, and President Putin all gather. The news of the day is that Putin will finally give his endorsement.
As Putin takes the post to make his speech, Sanders notices something odd out of the corner of his eye. His suspiscion is confrimed when somebody in the audience shouts, "He's going to kill the President!"
Faster than he has ever moved in his life, Sanders pushes Putin out of the way just as a brilliant blood red laser streaks across the sky. No more than second later, the laser pierces Sanders' heart, blooding spraying the air and covering the the two Russian Americans on stage.
The Secret Service quickly guns down the assassin, but the damage is done.
After five long minutes of shock, quietly talking with Governor Mendelev, and the Secret Service insisting that he leave, President Putin takes the post once more. He looks at his now blood covered speech and begins,
"Comrades, I came here today to tell you who I would give my blessings to. While I have enjoyed all the cooperation of the Republican party and once again thank them for everything, I must remind the nation that I am a Socialist first and formost. Sadly, the man who was going to get my endorsement, one who has supported me for eight years now, is no longer with us." Putin pauses as he begins to tear up. "Governor Mendelev has informed me that he no longer has the heart to continue campaigning. As of now, there will be no Socialist candidate on the ballot. Picking a replacement would insult Bernie. He did not have to take the shot for me. If I had been the one to die, he would have found himself in a much better position to win the election, as President of the United States, backed by a nation of sympathy. No, instead, Bernie made the ultimate sacrifice.
"However, I came here to endorse somebody, and I will now do so. I give my full support to Senator Pershing. Bernie knew how conflicted I am about this, but I now only have one choice. It would be an insult to everyone I have worked with not to do this." Putin turns to leave, but the microphone picks up one last line.
"If you can hear me Bernie... forgive me."
The audience is still to shocked to do anything as Governor Mendelev and the Secret Service escort President Putin, now sobbing beyond control, away.
