From: United Corporatist Commonwealths of Russia To: All Concerned Parties in Germany CC: World Following extensive deliberations the Board of Directors has decided that the interest of the shareholders is best served by continued support for the central government of the united German nation, undivided by feudal bounds and petty poleis distinctions. The Board considers Russian interests to be significantly threatened by any secessionist or provincialist movements in the German nation, which the Board considers to be united and sovereign under its central authority, and will act in order to assist its allies, honor its commitments and defend its interests. We will take all announcements by the so-called sovereign authorities of the various princely feudatory states and fiefs of the German nation under advisement and will chart a course beneficial to the German people, their sovereign government, and the shareholders' interests. Consider yourselves warned. From: United Corporatist Commonwealths of Russia To: Manchuria CC: All Other Involved Parties Hostilities will continue until Manchuria recognizes the Amur Compact's terms in their totality and Russian sovereignty over the Changchun cession. We are determined that justice will be done in this matter. Orders tonight.
