Prussian Chancellor issues statement....

(CNN) Koenigsberg, PRUSSIA. Prussian Chancellor Conrad Hekel addressed an emergency joint session of both the Council of Prussia and the National Assembly. The Chancellor's speech:

"Citizens of the Republic, greetings. I'm sure you are all aware now of the recent declaration by the government in Poland towards our new country. All republic services are carrying on. Our ambassadors in Moscow & Brussells have been in contact and I have been briefed by our military and intelligence services. We have to ask ourselves this question. Will Poland refuse annexation of southern Prussia? We must proceed on the assumption that they will. Arrangements are being made both diplomatically & militarily to, hopefully, prevent this from happening. Militarily we are preparing for an Polish invasion to overthrow our government and install a Polish puppet administration. Every assurance has been made to us from Moscow and no doubt they will be made good. We are a young state, but we are not defenseless. Many of our PDF forces have experience in the Russian army and several of our officer corps once served in armies from Germany and France to the United States. In fact our Special Operations Group are all former members of Spetsnaz and German KSK. These past three months we have steadily trained and equipped our defense forces for just such an event, invasion by a hostile force. For the past month we have had 1 battalion of infantry on special duty in Chechnya serving under Russian allied command, they are being rushed home as we speak. We have much Russian equipment, such as tanks and the anti-air and ground attack missiles which our allies saw fit to bequeath us on our creation. We will meet any invasion with the full force of our military capabilities, which I believe more than suffice to hold the nation until help arrives or cooler heads prevail and Poland is forced to find a seat and sit down."

Indeed the mood in the streets of Koenigsberg seems to be a serious one, machine gun armed Police are patrolling the streets, alongside military vehicles and tanks. We've been told that a curfew is in force and that citizens & civilians are being warned for possible attacks from the Polish military. Lights Out procedures are being streamed on Prussian radio and TV networks. It is an anxious night. Back to you Wolf.

Poland Declares Prussia a Rogue State

(AP) Warsaw POLAND. Three months after the rise of the new Baltic nation of Prussia from the former Russian enclave of Kaliningrad, Poland's Foreign Minister declares that Poland views Prussia as a rogue state. This is casting doubt on the planned July annexation of lands that are currently inside the borders of Poland that voted for Prussian independence.

Tensions on the Polish side are rising as people living in the planned Prussian lands are protesting the Polish governments declaration.

The Prussian government has yet to respond to the Polish declaration. The Russian Foreign Minister called the Polish decision foolish and likened it to a spoiled child while the Russian Prime Minister Putin said that the annexation of the Prussian lands should continue as planned.

Russian economic and military aid to Prussia continues as Russian scientists and engineers arrived in Koenigsberg today to begin construction on a planned nuclear power plant and Russian fighter jets were seen landing at the Koenigsberg International Airport this morning.

Prussian Republic Service - Police Officers Uniform

As the Republic Police Service Corps march on parade in Koenigsberg one can get a good look at their uniforms. On a side note, Prussia has no prisons, only local jails. You don't want to get caught committing a felony in Prussia. Most misdemeanors result in a public whipping, anything that would result in a long term prison sentence in most countries will get you a public hanging in Prussia.
