Russia, Moscow NDCC War Room 1500 zulu.
Huge screen had a flaming Russian flag. It cross faded to a bird perspective picture, flying over vast forests and mountains, air was clear and you could see a part of the Eagles wing…
”Russija… eternal and strong, forever our home… one nation, under God and his will… time has come, our century is beginning… no emotions, no room for evil, simple it is…”
The voice over was like an old beer commercial, cowboy stuff. You could hear that the speaker had has his share of ethanol and cheap cigarettes. He was actually a famous actor Alexander Shirvindt… the picture cross-faded to strong images of Russian history, the ancient knights and heroic saints stuff, small clips of WW2 with pilots diving to attack, huge explosions and stuff…
”…if you poke the Bear, you will get the Bear… for thousand years, longer than any other, we have defend our Country… from those who want our precious soil, our Rodina, our beautiful Mother Rossija… and we have prevailed and we will…”
Now the clips and picts were from today’s stuff, rushing tanks, artillery batteries shooting, Uragans, Smerchs, Grads… nuclear missiles, fighters, low level bombings, destroyers launching missiles, subs and torpedoes, satellites, computers, parachuters shooting still in the air…
”…forever be loyal, it is the only way… one nation, one Kreml… strong and wise with the men of Gods and the World once again knows that the Bear… is alive and stronger than ever. Rossija. Eternal.”
The picture faded back to the sky. The Eagle was circling around Kreml in a beautiful sun rise and the Russian National Anthem started. The whole HQ at the War Room stand up and started to sing it. They were simply moved, perhaps the lunch before this with few hits of vodka was a good old trick to pull out emotions. And the huge screen with massive resolution, no pixels…
-My fellow comrades, you may sit. By the order of Russian Federation government, that has been ratified in Duma, I, the acting President of Russian Federation, Sergey Shoigu, have ordered a pre-emptive attack to South Finland to secure the peace at Finnish Gulf, Leningrad and south-Carelia areas. We had intel that Finn’s were massing heavy artillery and missiles there which could reach to Leningrad and our strategic targets like nuclear reactors and energy facilities. They were also trying to explode the canal that would have flooded Vyborg and cut our railroads, roads and cause massive damage to Leningrad. Our troops are taking care of that now.
People started to clap and cheer.
-We are also revenging the barbaric attack against our President Putin and the heart of our Military. Doctors are doing the best they can. At the attack died his bodyguard secret service Colonel Pasha Murmanov who was protecting our President with his body, another bodyguard Major Yaromir Uljanov, Defense department head of Staff, Guards General Evgeny Baryshev, Air Force General-lieutenant Timur Burmosov, deputy Emergency minister Janna Puchkova…
The screen was showing all these killed people in bloody closeups in a sterile room with names, birth dates and family status, wife, kids…
-…Moscow Metropolite, his Holiness Kliment III and two children, Vova and Natasha who were there to give President Putin flowers. And tens have been wounded. I order now a minute silence for our heroes who gave their life for our Motherland.
Lights went off, the screen showed all the dead persons and candles flaming in front of an Virgin Mary with Jesus child icon. The silence was deep. Someone tried to hide his crying. Geopolitics has no emotions. Another great Russian lie.
6th Army, 138th Guards Motor Rifle Brigade, 262nd Artillery Battalion near Vaalimaa 1510 zulu.
You couldn’t see the Battalion in the dark. It was hard even on daylight. They were hidden on the tree line and covered with nets and branches. You could hear them though, all kinda klonks and yells were in the air. Iron was heavy.
-Attention! We have fire orders! All to the guns, radio silence, use the wire taps! Davai davai!
The Battalion had 18 tracked artillery guns, 152mm Akatsiyas. They were in close line formation 4km from Finnish border near Laykhalampi. All started their engines, they need power for the hydraulics and electronics. 2nd Battery’s first gun was the reference gun. It would shoot first and the others were lined with that. First gun leader, Guard Sergeant Nusrajev put his tank driver helmet on and report to the Battalion commander he was ready.
-2nd Battery, first gun, full charge, illumination round, timing 36, side 28-76, 583!
-Illumination…36..28-76…583… loaded and ready sir!
The gun blasted a 40kg shell with speed of 500m/s up in a high angel, the blast wave and muzzle flame illuminated everything around it like a camera flash, it was just much more yellow. Or orange. That shell would burst up high, 1km or lower and then come down with a parachute illuminating a 1 square mile area for 40 seconds. It was going to burst roughly 10km inside Finnish territory. It didn’t have any real purpose actually. There was no targets there, yet. This was just 6th Army Commanders idea to draw attention away the Lappeenranta area.
-2nd battery, all guns, full charge, illumination, timing 38, side 28-73, 584!
6 guns, or actually howitzers, loaded and gave ready to fire reports.
Now the illumination and blast wave was just more massive. Also on the other side. The Battalion commander ordered the 1st Battery to shoot randomly illuminations closer to the border and the 3rd was waiting. After 10 rounds you need to cool the barrels for awhile and then he would use the 3rd. Finn’s could hear there outgoing booms near the border and would get very nervous. Also everyone will rush out and fill internet with pictures of those illumination rounds. At the same time EW Brigade would fly drones over the area, that would certainly draw the attention there. Well, you never know, something might pop up on that intel. Besides drone based fire observation needs training…
Vainikkala railway crossing point, 40km NE from Vaalimaa 1512 zulu
Finnish border guards open the gates to let the Finnish passenger train in. Before it stopped, VDV soldiers opened fire through the windows and opened doors against the Customs building and stormed in. They have made sure that the rail would be opened for them by informing that there was some Finn’s in the train that need urgent medical help. There really was Finn’s in the train, a group of 15 hold as hostages. As soon as they have cleared the building, the train moved on. The next train was just behind them and two companies from 4th Battalion jumped to take over the area. That train also moved on after they unloaded their war machines. And then rolled in the third train, 4th Guards Kantemirovska Tank Division’s 1st Regiment, 156 tanks, T-80’s. They just rolled it to the side tracks and tank crews started their engines. They have been all the way for last 60km inside their tanks with full ammo and fuel loads. They simply turned their tanks 90 degrees and drove off the trailer with turrets turned to point back. In 20 minutes whole Regiment except 5 damaged tanks was heading to Lappeenranta that was only 20km away. And the 2nd Regiment train just passed by, it was going 30km further to cut the main road and railroad to Lappeenranta. And the 3rd was arriving in 1 hour. The Finn’s had some pre-made trenches with machine guns and rpg’s around the custom building and deeper in the way to the village but Russian intel has spotted those hours ago and it was easy to wipe them out with straight tank hits. And the mechanized infantry was cleaning the pockets, every regiment has one battalion with them and Kantemirovskaya had added also extra engineering company to this 1st Regiment. Russia didn’t fear much of the Finnish Air Force, they knew they have very limited air to ground weaponry and they also ruled the sky with their overwhelming Anti-Aircraft missile arsenal and radars and EW Brigades. Besides it was simply too costly to send a fighter against a tank, the pilot was more valuable than a whole tank company. Still they had their AA units, two companies of Tunguska’s and one Tor with them, one company guarded the Vainikkala area, one company moved with the 1st. 3rd was with the HQ unit that was on the move with the 1st regiments 1st battalion. The 2nd was on the lead and in front of them was the recon company with civilian cars and the silent BRMD’s and some EW stuff. What they feared was mines and infantry. But since they have surprised Finns quite good, there was not even those. Just stunned civilians watching from their windows and taking videos and picts of them. But that was nothing to worry about now, they drove fast in the dark December freezy night, it was just 15 kilometers to the town.
-Sergeant, take a line to HQ’s!
Pskov VDV 76th Divisions Guards Communication Specialist Sergeant Tyartsev tapped some buttons and gave the handset to Major Lezye. The line went from the armored communication vehicle to the railroad.
-Adin tri nol, report, crossing point one secured 2030 Moscow time. Casualties one KIA, 4 WIA. Enemy losses 8 KIA, 4 WIA and 13 prisoners. Area clear for 25th MRB to arrive. 5 tanks are damaged on unloading.
-Yest. Is the bridge secured behind the south building?
-Da, there’s a checkpoint and two BMD’s. Also the alcohol storage is destroyed but the cigarettes we keep.
-Yest. You have earned them. Leave some to the 25th. We send helo to pick up the wounded.
-Yest. Adin tri nol, over.
Lonely drone flew over them in a darkening night. From east. It was own. Nashe.
Finland, road 3513, 17km from Vaalimaa, Russian border 1525 zulu.
Reserve Office School Captain Tervala was leading 6 trucks column filled with volunteer officer conscripts from anti-tank and engineers companies. They had 120 anti-tank mines, 50 anti-tank NLAW’s and a bunch of 66mm LAW’s. And personal weapons. Conscripts were loading their clips, two with armor piercing and tracers, others with full jackets. They were roughly a company. 72 men. Another similar group was pushing trough the civilian traffic few kilometers up north at road 7. They were formed from Reserve Officer Schools 1st and 2nd company. They had also fire observers and recons with them. Also other groups were formed, that school has all branches, Artillery, Anti-Aircraft, Engineers, Communications, Infantry, Recon… and they were all basic trained, gone trough special education and been in multiple drills already. And they got the spirit. When they asked for volunteers, only few said no. They had kids or other reasons, totally acceptable and they stay on the supply formations. That had to work also. But fucking hell they were scared. Sky was full of illumination rounds. They could hear the shooting Russian artillery in the clear cold December air, it has just been Finland’s 100th Birthday and here they were, thinking of Winter War. 20 year old boys. Or men. Or both.
-There is a tank regiment at Torfyanovka, that artillery is shooting from 4km from the border behind it. That whole Brigade is there, 138th. We are going to stop behind that hill, see that farm? Turn there and drive under the trees.
The driver was Finnish Army warrant officer, one of the military trainers in the anti-tank company. They both knew very well the surroundings here. It was their job to know. On the other trucks was also a warrant officer or a officer from the School, they were making 6 teams, all lead by a one.
-Okay my brothers in arms, from now on, I am just Tervala. We have a job to do. Together. Unload the trucks, keep in air cover, get some spruce branches and make yourself well camoed. Listen and smell everything, there is Russian recon here, don’t use any lights, those illumination rounds will give us enough light. Understood?
-Yes… yes sir.
-Now fear. We all have it. But so does the others. Russian tanks burn good. And goes off with a big bang. You want to sit in a machine like that knowing that anywhere can be a angry Finn with anti-tank weapon?
Somebody laughed, it started to spread…
-…or angry mines? Okay, we have no own tanks on this area so any tank or BMP or similar is a target. Watch out for civilians, try to route them to safety. Use your radios only in real emergency. Remember the flare signals. You all leaved your cell phones to the barracks? And left then on? Good. Check that again from each others, one phone can kill us all.
-Sir, do we get back up?
-Back up is on it’s way. Battalion is formed in Kotka, it will arrive soon. We will have our drones feeding intel and artillery battery and heavy mortars will cover us in one hour.
-Yes, 122mm artillery battery and heavy mortar company from school. I will be the FO. Stinger teams are on the way, one platoon for us. We don’t have any copters on the area so all flying is a target. But don’t start shooting drones, it’s useless unless it is low. Use the armor piercing and tracers against helos. After you shoot, change your position. If the helo is close, shoot it with the rpg.
-Guys, remember Ukraine. They are fighting like Lions. They have stopped Russian Army. Now it is our turn to take example. They took example of our Winter War, we are brothers with them now. Brothers in Arms. Hopefully NATO will join us in this fight. But that is not in our hands. Now lets show some Finnish Perkele!
-Perkele! To the end!
The group gathered their weapons, engineers took the mines and some rpg’s, anti-tank guys the rest. Silently they scattered to the dark forest. Like wolfs smelling blood…
Russia, Valaam Monastery 1555 zulu
Alexander Dugin was sitting in a small monk’s room dressed up like a one and writing his diary. He liked that and was actually part of the secret ”Modern Days Templars” organization that has members from all over the World, also Vatican. He was the Grand Master. They were a ”Hybrid collection of Traditionalists” or something like that. Collection of nut-heads and conspirators. They were actually a FSB operation and it wasn’t hard to recruit people from Church, any church, to this group that promised to restore ”God and Kings”, demolish the godless global village idea. Because these people didn’t want to loose their power and they all hate young people with their iPhone’s and Androids… ”God doesn’t need an iPad!” was one of their favorite slogans. Some said that that Breivik’s, the Norwegian far-right monsters ”Manifesto” was written by FSB. It had so much detailed information and deep knowledge that a one simple guy couldn’t do it. Some said that it was partly written by Dugin. But it was not a coincidence that they were very close with far-right. It was their ”street army” in Europe and Russia. And they openly dreamed of a revolution. And that was happening in Russia. Funny thing was that they got Muslim friends. After all, Jesus was also a saint in Quran…
” …Those foolish Finns. They have been asking themselves all the time that why in earth would Russia attack them. They have no oil, gas or another resources, they are peaceful people, they have good relationship with Russia and other parts of the World. They are advanced society in many levels and have strong mentality to defend their country… Yes, all of that is true. But once again a nation sees itself like a selfish person does: as a single creature that should concentrate on what is important for only him. And this is what we have couraged and this is how we control our east neighbors Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and so on. And this is how we controlled Finland for years after WW2. We have tons of material of this stuff in the cellars, we have all the names and connections, we have made deep psychological analyses of the entire establishment, not hard, the nation is only 5 million people, the ruling class is only 1000 people. And we didn’t need to get the society behind our actions, all we needed to keep it isolated. Believing in its own strengths, trusting us and not seeing the big picture. The Big Picture. That Finland is the weak part of the chain, the chain of European Union. We are not attacking Finland. Just like we were not attacking only Ukraine, we are attacking West. We are breaking the West. We fear the West because we are weak. We have lost our soul, people don’t watch our movies, young generations listen some weird drug music and don’t believe in the God and the Holy Spirit. Pussy Riot is more popular in West than our singing Babushkas. Homosexuality is popular, that means lower birthrate, that means weak nation. We change this. We will restore ”Imperial Russia”, we will have order like USSR and the Glory of Empire. Oh those Finns, they didn’t see that the route to kick down European Union was going through them. Of course we don’t attack NATO directly. They have nuclear deterrence. We give NATO a middle finger because we want Finns think that it is dangerous, that seeking membership is dangerous. And my God it has been easy. Some Finns have knew this all the time. But we have played a good friend for so many years that we are now inside the most pro-NATO party. We have so much money in Finnish Banks that if we pull that out, Finnish economy will collapse. I believe they are doing it right now. World is chaotic. Russia is chaotic. That needs to be controlled. Our greatest enemy is ourselves. There are those who dare to ask why and those who are strong enough to say shut the fuck up. Liberals in West, those annoying little children with their progressive thoughts, oh how easily the Pope stepped on our side. He understands the value of Tradition. And the power and wealth it has behind it. Christianity. Conservatism. Nationalism. Corruption. Our four horsemen…”
…to be continued… soon. 😉
