Images of The Death of Russia


Current flag of Serbia, adopted after the Bulldozer Revolution and the subsequent abolition of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia as part of Belgrade's normalization strategy with the wider world, with the blue color being a compromise between the shades of blue traditionally used by Serbia and Montenegro.

(OTL context is that this was a proposed flag for Serbia and Montenegro)

(OTL, the PCs could never recover their position as the opposition party. I imagine they could have done that here in 1998 if the Liberals had never called a snap election in 1997.)

During the Pakistani Civil War, there were fears across the world over the war possibly turning nuclear, much like the Second Russian Civil War. Those fears increased when India and Afghanistan moved troops into Pakistani-controlled Kasmir and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Many people began to stockpile food and other items in case the worst had happened. The fears had cooled down when Punjabistan was declared and promised to surrender its remaining nukes, and Afghanistan, under international pressure and threats of an invasion by China, surrendered the nukes in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to the United Nations.
Pakistan wouldn't have nuclear weapons in this timeline. The collapse of Pakistan was a direct result of the US and its allies bombing Pakistani nuclear facilities for to a brief military government refusing to stop their nuclear programme
To flag the differences in the world, consider this one:


Following the death of Pope John Paul II in Rome in April 2005, the College of Cardinals considered many candidates to demonstrate the international appeal and diversity of the Roman Catholic Church. Cardinal Robert Sarah of Conarky, Guinea (a.k.a. Pope Benedict XVI). He has been described as largely sympathetic to liturgical practices of the era before the Second Vatican Council, but has also proposed that partisans of different liturgies learn from each other and seek a middle ground. In 2016 Sarah called for priests to face the same direction as the congregation while celebrating Mass (ad orientem), although facing the congregation had become the prevailing practice since the Second Vatican Council. His advice was seen by some as a direct challenge to Pope Francis, a claim that Sarah rejects. An advocate of traditional Catholic marriage doctrine in opposition to same-sex marriage, he has denounced "Western homosexual and abortion ideologies", suggesting that both are of "demonic origin", and he has compared them to Nazism and Islamic terrorism. Embraced by social and religious conservatives, until his death on November 23, 2014.
Interesting, I can see Cardinal Sarah opposing the Menist Russian Orthodox Church’s views.
Also consider that he would a vocal critic of efforts to divide the Russian state. If anything, he would also be a vocal about efforts to make massive social changes in relation to human rights and gender politics.
Here is the fate of one of the historical analogues:

Major League Baseball (MLB) Commissioner George W. Bush, son of former U.S. President George H. W Bush. After baseball commissioner Fay Vincent resigned his post in 1992, Selig became the de facto commissioner when his fellow owners selected him to be chairman of the Major League Executive Council. In that capacity, he presided over the contentious 234-day strike by players in 1994–95 that led to a precipitous drop in game attendance and the cancellation of the World Series for the first time since 1904. He formally assumed the title of baseball commissioner in 1998 after league owners unanimously voted to give him a five-year term. This marked the first time that a team owner had been chosen for the commissioner’s post.

Photos of Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and Nawaz Sharif, current President of Sindhudesh and Prime Minister of Punjabistan respectively. While both Sindhudesh and Punjabistan are nominally parliamentary democracies under multi-party systems, the two countries are dominated by the Bhutto-run Sindhi People's Party and the Sharif-dominated Punjabi Muslim League, who have run the two countries ever since the break-up of Pakistan in the 2000s with many viewing the two countries as basically monarchies under the Bhutto and Sharif families, despite the trappings of parliamentary democracy that they have tried to maintain. This criticism is made stronger by how Bilawal Bhutto Zardari inherited the position of President of Sindhudesh from his mother Benazir after her death in 2017 while Nawaz Sharif has been Prime Minister of Punjabistan ever since the formation of the country with Sindhudesh infamous for the repression of Muhajirs that has marked the country since independence.

Diana hasn't been seen often on royal occassions and most notable were marriages of her sons William and Harry, funeral of queen Elizabeth II and coronation of Charles III altough on two latter she was seated on pretty far behind to guest seat. After her second marriage Diana hasn't married again altough there has been rumors about new relationships. Altough Diana has enjoyed great popularity in 1990's it has declined during last years. But still she is quite popular. She has too speciality gained criticism using her royal status on her own business.

Dodi al-Fayed was long time heir of his father Mohammed al-Fayed's business empire. He has long time been active on some business things and charities. He too gained pretty notorious reputation as ladies man whom had through 1980's and 1990's many female relations. In 1998 he married princess Diana but that marriage didn't last long. In 2009 he married Tatar origin woman and they got two daughters. But this marriage ended in 2015.

In 2023 al-Fayed inherited his father Mohammed's massive business empire and his property of several billions dollars. Dodi al-Fayed is listed one of richest men of the world but he has too accused from hiding his money in tax havens and even making some questionable business deals.

Dodi's son Ibrahim al-Fayed (b. 2000) is called one of most wanted bachelor of Britain. There is actually many reports his girlfriends. Ibrahim has too described his relationships with his step-brothers pretty good.
