Good Point.I feel like he would be Fascist since he was not that extreme to be a hardcore racist Nazi.
Good point, but all leave him as the puppet of Germany just because I can't think of anyone better.Arriaga would not accept to rule a puppet state, he was a hardcore salazarist.
Those are good choices for the Father's Biblical analogies. In terms of my ideas, Father Janis Mendriks could be the Good Samaritan, Marian Spychalski could be Moses (as he would be seen as the Moses of the Poles), Vasily Blokhin could be Pilate and Oskar Dirlewanger could be Cain.You know... This made me wonder: The Divine Mandate and Father Man have a habit of comparing all the other warlords that they fight against with Biblical villains. Most notably, they will compare Yagoda to the Pharaoh; Sablin to Simon the Sorcerer; Rodzaevsky to Haman the Agagite; Matkovsky to the Serpent; Mikhail II to King Belshazzar; And Taboritsky with both Nebuchadnezzar and the Antichrist.
Here, you have him also comparing Tomsk and its Salon system with King Solomon; Zhukov with Goliath, and Yeltsin with Caesar.
I wonder what he might compared all the other warlords not listed here with?
Off the top of my head, I imagine that he might compare Bukharina with Delilah; Omsk with Abimelchk; And Despotist Stalina with Queen Jezebel.
I actually think thats a good analogy for the Father to use.It's kind of a reach, but maybe WerBell would be the money changers in the temple?
Good idea, in the next update, I'll have Komi integrate elements of the Tsarist officer corps which were previously imprisoned by the ROA.
Smh not having the Russian Free Republic's military being represented by Pavel Batov in the surrender talks, considering how Yeltsin's Sverdlovsk was peacefully integrated into Kosygin's government.Field Marshal Grigorenko
Katushev, looking at the collection of Tsarist, pro-democracy, nationalist, and Red Army officers he has: "Avengers, Assemble for we are reclaiming the Motherland!"President Katushev knew this issue had to be resolved one way or another, and he thus committed himself to the task of regaining, annexing and integrating the German-ruled region of Muscovy be the end of the decade.
Thanks for pointing that out. I'll edit the post to have Pavel Batov at the peace talks. I'll also add something about the fate of Vlasov, the ROA and the Tsarist army remnants.Smh not having the Russian Free Republic's military being represented by Pavel Batov in the surrender talks, considering how Yeltsin's Sverdlovsk was peacefully integrated into Kosygin's government.

Personally, I would add in a part about Sablin taking the 'LibSoc-Pro OFN' combo, meaning that the Americans would have trade and diplomatic ties with both sides, complete with that event of General Secretary trying out a bottle of Pepsi for the first time.After the Soviet-Central Siberian War, tensions began to increase between the Russian Free Republic and the newly-renamed Siberian Soviet Republic led by Premier Valery Mikhailovich Sablin. By the end of 1970, it became increasingly to both the governments of the two nations and the high commands of the Russian Republican Army and the Siberian Red Army that war between Free Russia and Soviet Siberia was not a question of if, but when. As a result, both nations and their governments and militaries began to prepare for the inevitable war between the two nations.
Narrator: Mr. Nixon, what is the truth? Can we continue to have peace while Hitler and Hiroya are trying to stir up the whole world against us?
Nixon: Well, the truth is that we must continue to have peace. And we can, if we continue to show firmness and strength to the fascist powers. Men like Adolf Hitler only understand violence and destruction, and we must never make the mistake of letting him or the Japanese believe that we are unable to counter their acts of terror against the Free World. We must show them both we are strong, economically and militarily. That we will not back down, that we won't tolerate their atrocities, and that we will continue to keep the flame of liberty bright in the United States of America. We must continue to deal with fascism and the fascist powers not indecisively, but firmly, and always with vigilance.
Narrator: Vote for Nixon and Kennedy November 8th! They understand what peace demands!
Cool post, but Bormann kills Spiedel. Always.Part Four: The Second West Russian War (1972-1976)In 1972, the Russian Republic was an almost completely re-unified nation, save for the lands that were once the heart of the Russian nation that were under the rule of the Greater Germanic Reich led by Martin Bormann and under the German colony of RK Moskowein, led by Reichskommissar Albert Hofmann. Almost immediately after what came be to known as the “First Russian Re-Unification” President and General Bunyachenko and the high command of the Russian Liberation Army began to make new plans for the final war for Russian Re-Unification, this being a war with the German Reich over RK Moskowein. In the minds of Bunyachenko and the ROA high command, this would be the war that would not only unify Russia and restore Russia to greatness once and for all, but the war that would redeem the KONR and the ROA, the rulers of the Russian Republic for their past-collaboration with the German Reich, a regime that the government of the Russian Republic now despised for their betrayal at the end of the West Russian War, their refusal to grant Western Russia self-rule and their re-conquest of Western Russia in 1967.

ROA soldiers advancing through RK Moskowein, 1975.
Meanwhile, unbeknownst to the world, Führer Martin Bormann was diagnosed with a fatal case of cancer in December, 1972. With so many high-ranking members of the Nazi Party either dead and/or purged and with many economic problems, the German Reich was incredibly unstable politically, economically and socially. As a result, at the start of 1973, Bormann secretly named Admiral Karl Dönitz as his successor and decided to declare a new war to distract the people of Germany from economic and social ills. That war would be the results of Fall Schwartz, the Burgundian War, which was being planned with the military of the German-aligned French State led by President Pierre Poujade. The war began on April 8, 1973 and, with high militarization of fanaticism of the SS armies, was one of the most brutal fought in Western Europe. Himmler desired to launch the Burgundian nuclear arsenal, but the French, Walloon and Flemish SS legions rose up in revolt, and Himmler was killed in an SS coup led by SS-Obersturmbannführer Otto Skorzeny . On January 8, 1974, the war came to an end, with Burgundy divided between Germany and France, with Belgium becoming Reichsprotektorat Belgium.
With the start of 1974, the perfect opportunity arose for the Russian Republic, the KONR and the ROA to get revenge on the German Reich for their lies and betrayal. On March 30, 1974, Führer Martin Bormann died of cancer in Germania at the age of 73 years old. With the death of Bormann, Admiral Karl Dönitz became interim-Führer of the Greater Germanic Reich. However, the internal situation of the German Reich was incredibly still incredibly unstable, and many in the government felt that the Reich was seemingly on the brink of collapse when the octogenarian admiral came to power. In the aftermath of the Burgundian War and the ascension of Karl Donitz, with the German army exhausted from their previous war and the German Reich in an unstable period of a transition of leadership, President Bunyachenko ordered an all-out attack against RK Moskowien on the morning of May 30, 1974. The Second West Russian War had begun. At the start of the invasion, the German armies in RK Moskowien were caught almost completely off-guard, but still managed to initially hold their defenses against the armies of the ROA. Nevertheless, in the face of a numerically superior Russian onslaught, the German armies began to fall apart and retreat in the face of the multiple Russian advances, and the ROA made numerous breakthroughs in battles along the Russo-German border. By the end of the summer, the ROA has advanced deep into the territory of RK Moskowien.
The climactic battle of the war was the Battle of Moscow, which began on July 29, 1974 with a lengthy artillery barrage and tank siege opening the battle, followed by an aerial bombardment the next day. The German armies in and around Moscow fought fanatically to the death, but the armies of the ROA continued to strategically advance in and around the former Soviet capital. On November 14, with the ROA finally entering more and more parts of Moscow and with the German armies losing more and more engagements, the government of the RK, led by Wehrmacht general and Reichskomissar Walther Wenck, who became leader of the RK after the death of Albert Hoffmann in 1973, fled to Brauchitstadt, formerly St. Petersburg. One day later, the ROA triumphantly entered Moscow to the celebration of the long-oppressed Russian residents of the city, with the remaining German residents of the city being the victims of vigilante murders by Russian nationalist partisans and ROA soldiers eager to prove they were no longer German collaborators at any cost.
Not long after the fall of Moscow, more and more major cities fell to the armies of the ROA, with many smaller towns in the countryside falling under the control of the pro-Russian partisans. All the while, many German settlers fled, with those not did not often being killed by Russian soldiers and partisans in war crimes known as "revenge killings", which were seen as revenge for the crimes of the Nazi Germans against the Russian nation, the motivations for these murders being the sheer anger Russians felt towards the Germans and, as touched upon above, the feeling that ROA soldiers needed to prove they were no longer collaborators with the hated German Reich. By July 1, 1975, over a year after the start of the war, most of RK Moskowien was under the occupation of the Russian Republic and the ROA began its invasion of RK Kaukasus. One major Russian city was still under German control; Brauchistadt, formerly Leningrad, Petrograd and St. Petersburg.
On July 12, 1975, the ROA encircled the aforementioned city with numerous infantry, armored and artillery divisions. That same day, the Battle of Brauchistadt began with a massive aerial and artillery bombardment. On September 4, 1975, the ROA finally entered the city and fought fierce hand-to-hand street battles against the German armies, with many German residents of the city caught in the fighting. After weeks of brutal fighting, with the German armies surrounded and decimated by the armies of the ROA, Reichskommissar and General der Panzertruppe Walther Wenck surrendered the German armies in Mosokwien the government of RK Mosokwien to Feild Marshall Georgy Nikolayevich Zhilenkov. With that, the armies of the paraded through the streets of the newly christened city of "Petrograd", with the long-suffering Russian residents of the city greeting the ROA as liberators, and with numerous unpunished acts of violence against the remaining German population. That same day, on the orders of President Bunyachenko, RK Moskowein was annexed into the Russian Republic, albeit without the recognition of the Greater German Reich, which due to political instability at home was unable to do much about the war in RK Moskowien, with most of the German armies in the RK being divisions that had already been posted to the German colony. Thus, the final phase of the Russian reunification and the “Second Russian Re-Unification” were finally complete, although armed groups of German settlers, mostly in the Volga region, continued to resist the ROA until the end of the war.
In October, 1975, with RK Moskowien under the control of the Russian Republic, the ROA began new invasions of RK Ukraine and RK Ostland. The ROA also continued to advance through the Caucasus and began a bombardment and invasion of the German Crimea. With all of this occurring in the eastern lands of the Greater German Reich and with interim-Führer Dönitz unable to keep peace in Germany proper and to stop the advance of the Russian armies, on November 11, 1975, General Hans Speidel launched a coup against the German government, arresting Admiral Donitz for “gross incompetence in wartime.” In the weeks after the coup, soldiers loyal to Dönitz and Speidel fought in the streets of Germania, and this led to more confusion in the eastern German colonies, which allowed the ROA to advance further and further into the Caucasus, Ukraine and Ostland. With the continuing advance of the Russian Liberation Army, an uprising of Polish militias began in the General Gouvernemnt of Poland, and similar uprisings took place in the Baltic region.
After weeks of chaos, Speidel’s loyalists secured control of Germania by the start of 1976. With the Speidel Coup finally complete, Germany offered talks with the government of the Russian Republic that January. At first, President Bunyachenko refused. This allowed the ROA to advance further into the Caucasus, Ukraine and Ostland, and Crimea fell to the ROA on April 30, 1976. The next month, the ROA had control over most of the Caucasus and Ukraine and most of Belarus. With the German Wehrmacht firmly under the control of Speidel's loyalists, a number of victories were won against the ROA in Ukraine and Ostland. However, soon afterwards the war degenerated into a stalemate between the German and Russian armies in the Baltics, Ukraine and Poland, and with the Polish Uprising and more instability on the home front, the German armies could not afford to fight with Russia for any longer. The armies of the ROA were also becoming worn down and tired. As a result, on August 3, 1976, a ceasefire was accepted by the two armies in Minsk. It was decided by Bunyachenko and Speidel that the two would meet in a neutral city to decide the final terms for the end of the war.
In September, President Bunyachenko and Führer Speidel meet in Stockholm, Sweden to discuss the final peace treaty for the Second West Russian War. The Treaty of Stockholm was finally signed on October 1, 1976. According to the treaty, the Russian Republic would annex RK Moskowien, RK Caucasus, RK Ukraine, the Crimea and Belarus. The Greater German Reich would retain control of the Baltics within RK Ostland. With that, the Second West Russian War ended in an amazing victory for the Russian Republic and President and General Sergei Bunyachenko. The German Reich was badly defeated in Eastern Europe, but in spite of this, still remained one of the premier world powers with control over Poland, the Baltics and the Low Countries, control of overseas territories in the Indian Ocean and alliances within the Einheitspakt with the nations of Denmark, Norway, Slovakia and Hungary, with France and Bulgaria having left the alliance after the start of the Second West Russian War in 1974. Nevertheless, with revenge against the German Reich achieved and with the final unification of Russia complete at last after twelve long years of warfare, a new era in the history of Russia had begun.
I mean, Bormann’s path literally is a “Soviet-style collapse” in the making.As much as I love the idea of the Polish Home Army being publicly honoured in the TNO world... Sadly, I have a hard time imagining this happening, even in a GO4 victory scenario. After all, one way or another, Poland will almost certainly remain under Germany's sphere of influence, and they are likely going to have an issue with a monument that honours the Home Army, especially considering that one way or another, a lot of German settlers and colonist would have been killed during the uprising.
On the other hand, I can certainly see such a monument being privately funded and erected by members of the Polish community in parts of the world with a significant Polish diaspora such as say, Chicago in the US, or a post-HMMLR victory UK that does not turn out badly.
this is a very confusing post.Political Parties in the USSR, Note that not all of them will have identifiable leaders because I can't think of one for a couple of parties:
Makhnovite Syndicalist Union--Collective leadership(Libsoc)-Anarchists, they were allowed to peacefully reunify with Sablinite far east and are the second major party after the CPSU
Krylovites-Essentially formed by Yuriy, who survived the reunification wars, and based on this concept(Libsoc)
Neo-Tolstoyans-Formed from the remnants of Alexander Men's organization(Libsoc)
New Menshevik Party-Ksenia Sobchak(socdem), formed from humanists in Tomsk
National Bolshevik Party (Left)-Eduard Limonov(Authsoc)-Left Ordosocialists, there have been calls to ban this party due to it's "reactionary" nature
National Bolshevik Party (Right)-Sergey Kurginyan(Natsoc)-Right Ordosocialists and outright crypto-fascistic, there have been calls to ban this party due to it's "reactionary" nature.
Ordosocialists were originally suppressed by Suslov but they made a comeback as the "National Bolsheviks" in the 2WRW because they operated in favor of the USSR under the banner of "defending the homeland"
Banned Organizations-Capitalist Restorationalists
Constitutional Democratic Party-Dmitry Medvedev(Libdem)
National People's Union-Yeltsin Clique-Boris Titov(Condem)
National People's Union-National Labourists-Sergey Baburin(authdem)
National People's Union-United Russia Front: Sergey Lavrov(authdem/despotist)
Banned Organizations-Reactionary Nationalist Restorationalists
Russian National Front-Aleksey Zhuravlyov(Fascist), Based on ideals of Matkovsky combined with Italian Fascist beliefs, fascistic and Slavic nationalist, but not to the extent of the racialist PRF and the RFP
Party of Russian Fascists-Alexander Dugin(Natsoc, with Shafarevian Fascist, Neo-Strasserite and Ultranat/Eurasianist internal factions), split from RFP and based on late game Rodzaevsky's ideals, which also makes sense considering how Dugin transitioned from outright pro-SS figure to a more pragmatic figure, they also have ties to the Crommelinites and the AmSocs in the US, which also makes sense considering Dugin's ties with Spencer and Maupin IRL
All Russian Fascist Party-Alexander Barkashov(Natsoc), based on early game Rodzaevsky ideals, unlike rival Russian Nazi organization PRF, looks to pre-Speerian Germany in extremely high regard, but not to the extent as their Ultra-Germanphilie wing
All Russian Fascist Party(Ultra-Germanphilies), Gottfried Voight AKA Nikolay Valentinovich Korolyov(Natsoc), essentially AB wannabes with the same beliefs
Great Eurasian Liberation Front-Alexander Prohkanov(Ultranat)
Children of Perun-Alexei Levkin(Ultranat), Hyperboreans
Society for the Restoration of the Russian Empire (Burgsys), led by Nikolai Skorodumov
The reason there are democratic parties that are banned is because I think it's made clear by the devs that even libsoc Sablin will ban capitalist parties. The reactionaries are all pretty much either internet edgelords(as far as CoP is concerned), or terrorist organizations with the exception of the PRF and the RNF, who do try to function like a political movement.
Irish breweries trying to enter the German market and compete with the country's own beers head on in their own home turf? Very bold of them... And also very foolish. I can totally see this being on a list of the TNO's verison of YouTube's 'Top 10 bad business ideas' video.
The presence of German economic influence in Ireland is well known, but what is less known is the various attempts by Irish companies, such as Guinness, to popularise their products in Germany. Guinness’ endeavours, of course, were not terribly successful due to German restrictions and monopolies held by larger, local alcohol distributors.
Guiness tried it irl. They were smarter, though.Irish breweries trying to enter the German market and compete with the country's own beers head on in their own home turf? Very bold of them...

Joan Boehm: As a housewife and a mother of four children, when I have problems, I go to somebody who can help us. But there are such tremendous problems now for our country, and the things that President Kennedy has been up to in the White House have shook me to my core. I feel that we need a man who will truly lead this country right and help our people through these problems, and that man is Barry Goldwater.
William Bowman: What's a college student worried about? Africa and Indonesia! We need a man like Goldwater who can bring these conflicts to their proper perspectives.
Governor Ronald Reagan: If you look at what's happening in the South, you're seeing the consequences of government overreach and the abuse of President Kennedy's enumerated powers. What we need now is a leader who will follow the ideals and values given to us by our Founding Fathers and protect the individual rights of our Union's states, and I am proud to say that Barry Goldwater is that man!
Narrator: In your heart, you know he's right!
Narrator: What has happened to America? We've had the good sense to create lovely parks, but our citizens are too afraid to use them after dark. We have brave and valiant agents of law enforcement to keep us safe, and yet tensions in our Southern states have been at their highest since the Civil War. The highest echelons of government are embroiled in scandals that are cynically swept under the rug.
Goldwater: National morality by example and persuasion should begin at the White House, and have the good influence to reach out to every corner of the land. For the past four years, this has not been the case with the current administration, as President Kennedy has sought to abuse his presidential powers to infringe on the political processes of the Southern state governments, weakening the American people's faith in our system of government. I pledge that Senator Rockefeller and I will restore to America a dedication to our founding ideals and renewed faith among its public servants.
Narrator: In your heart, you know he's right! Vote for Barry Goldwater!
