News about the Memel Province

Memel has been under Lithuanian rule since 1991, but since yesterday’s Germanic nationalist bombing, relations with neighboring state Teutonia have begun to heat up. PM Ägidius Lexer and PM Vita Krugeliene discuss the matter in the Memel Summit. The type of summit will be a judicial summit. Nine other nations will make up the jury to reach the verdict.

On September 15th, 2020, five bombs went off in the eastern Memel Province Parliamentary Building at 8:35 PM. Three minutes later, two more bombs went off in the southern building. A total of 296 people were killed in the attack, with another 20584 injured.

“Memel has suffered enough from the Soviets, and the Canadians tried to negotiate with the Russians to allow Eastern Germans to live in one state,” states Lexer. “If we let Memel be annexed by Teutonia, Oliver’s dreams of an Eastern Germanic State will be fulfilled.”

"We will not negotiate with these terrorists, nor will we ever let the Germans unify under one banner. The last time the Germans tried to unite, the world was nearly destroyed," states Krugeliene, "that is why we need to keep the Germans separated. They must not destroy the world."

After three days of the summit, the verdict has been reached. Memel will remain under Lithuanian rule, and the terrorists responsible in Teutonia will be brought to justice by the Lithuanian government.

3 days after the summit, Teutonia has begun to justify war goals against Lithuania, according to Estonian spies. Estonia warned Lithuania about the upcoming war, but Lithuania dismissed the issue as "fake news." As it turns out, Teutonia had justified war goals against Lithuania, just to claim Memel. Teutonia sent an ultimatum for Memel, and Lithuania refused. The war has begun for Memel.

After a few weeks of regular battles, the conflict later devolved into a provincial skirmish, where they send a squad to raise their flag on the provincial control marker, with a few border skirmishes along the province border. This is similar to the dispute over the Falklands and other places in the world.

A ceasefire was issued to both sides by the UNOEA (United Nations Office of European Affairs) on December 30th. VC forces will set up, manage, and enforce the DMZ until all wounded and civilians are evacuated from the areas affected. The ceasefire was put into effect at 13:35 EET on December 31st, and VC peacekeepers arrived at 15:10 EET the same day.
