Ostland worried about rise of radical Haukism in Utari Mosir
March, 4490

Wolfsheim - Ostland military and foreign affairs officials are rumored to be worried about the rise of a radical form of Haukism that has arisen in Ostlands northern neighbor, Utari Mosir. Haukism is an agrarian nationalist ideology which is directly opposed to the efforts of industrialization; something that Ostland and most Hulstrians and Dundorfians are traditionally open to. Haukism failed to take root in the nominally industrial north of Ostland and never really made an impact with the Kunihito of southern Ostland who prescribe to their own ideology; mostly focused around their own regional issues and the establishment of their autonomous state. The Kunihito in southern Ostland have been relatively supportive of the Dundorfian-minority rule based out of Wolfsheim and vastly improved when Grand Duke Magnus the Great, his son Grand Duke Magnus II and now current Grand Duke Florian I have increased cooperation with the nominally independent south where a vast majority of Ostlands Kunihito population resides.

Ostland infantry and armored divisions have been placed on alert and have been moved to the Ostland-Utari border, the Ostland State Police's Border Guard Police have also increased their patrols on the northern border, expecting a rise in asylum seekers and those who are interested in crossing the border illegally. The Grand Duke, who retains authority over the Ostland Landwehr as Supreme Commander-in-Chief has been seen attending regular meetings at the State Chancellery and the Security and Military Leadership Council, the national security council of Ostland. The Volksdundorfische Cultural Associations Security Service have mobilized additional paramilitary troops to support the border operations in the north, they were seen leaving their respective military bases alongside the Ostland military divisions. The Security Service has played a vital role in securing Ostland's interior security structure and it also provides a notably secondary force for the Ostland Landwehr since the collapse of the Freikorp militia units that were disbanded by Grand Duke Magnus the Great.

Operation North Watch continues despite lul in Utari tensions
November, 4492

Ebentetten Province and Misteldorf Province - State Chancellor Claus Wilhelm von Pölzl announced today that "Operation: North Watch" the heightened border security operation that was drawing units from the Ostland Landwehr, the State Police, the VDKV's Armed Security Service and others was continuing despite a "lul" in the action in Utari Mansir. The State Chancellor was adamant that it could mean that tensions had settled but feared that the less news that was coming out of the country could reveal a much more dangerous, sinister path. Ostland has continued maintain the operation underneath General der Polizei Alfons Rohmer, the commander of the State Police's Border Guard Police who has been difficult to reach for comment due to his "front-line leadership" that he is known for. While reporters are not technically prohibited from the border areas in the Ebentetten and Misteldorf province, they are encouraged to stay out of the way and not interfere with Operation: North Watch. Units were rotated out as several units had to take part in the scheduled war games and military exercises with the Dorvish Republic that took place in September, 4491 and again over the course of several months.

Ostland deploys more forces to northern border
TBD

Ebentetten Province and Misteldorf Province - Grand Duke Florian issued an executive decree appointing two Bezirkskommandant (Luthorian: District Commander); these are essentially temporary appointments that allow their appointees to have nigh unlimited power within their respective districts. District Commanders were appointed as such: Rear Admiral Antonin Honigberg of the Misteldorf Province and Major General Sven Knauer of the Ebentetten Province. The Grand Duke signed the decree almost immediately following the outbreak of violence on the border. The Ostland Landwehr has several divisions attached, all reserves have been mobilized and the Ostland Landwehr is poised on the border, both for offensive and defensive capacities. General Alfons Rohmer, the Commander of the State Border Police have shifted significant resources to the border in order to protect the influx of refugees.

The VDKV has, in accordance with Ostland Law, placed their forces underneath the District Commanders, Obergruppenführer Claus Eisen, Supreme Security Service and Intelligence Service Leader "Ostland", the highest Security Service leader in Ostland, has dispatched all 3 "volunteer security regiments" which are mostly motorized forces to the border to assist and are working with the State Border Police.

Ostland denies Kazulian request for passage
September, 4500

Wolfsheim - Grand Duke Florian was joined earlier today by State Chancellor Claus Wilhelm von Pölzl, Dorvish General-Plenipotentiary to Ostland Heinz Schädler and Minister of Defense Generaloberst Karlheinz von Eisenhaus-Pilc to denounce Kazulia's request for passage through Ostland into Istapali. The Grand Duke, who has personally become involved in this conflict, has noted that should Kazulia breach any sovereign territory of Ostland that there would be "...serious consequences, not only from Ostland but from allies of Ostland." The Grand Duke was notably joined by the Dorvish General-Plenipotentiary (Ambassador) to Ostland Heinz Schädler who noted that the Dorvish Republic's training and material support over the past several years had lead to an increase in both size and stature of the Ostland Armed Forces, notably in land and air warfare. While Ostland would unlikely be able to withstand a direct assault from the Kazulian Armed Forces for a sustained period of time, the arrival of Dorvish and potentially other allied forces would likely overwhelm the now dwindling Kazulian Armed Forces that have remained based since the collapse of the Northern Council and the National Workers' Congress, which had a long and storied history of promoting the Kingdom's Armed Forces.

Grand Duke Florian ordered District Commissar's into the districts bordering Kazulia and has further deployed troops to meet any perceived assault from Kazulia. Dorvish Foreign Minister Eckhart Röhr has already announced sanctions on Utari Mosir and potentially more down the line; the Dorvish have once again become a political force in international affairs and it is believed that they will directly intervene if Kazulia or any military action takes place. Dorvish advisors have already been attached to Ostland training and support units, most of which are meant to enhance the training of the Ostland Armed Forces. Dorvik has also approved several millions worth of arms sales, short of major weapon systems to Ostland but rumors have been afloat that they might be supportive of major land systems and potentially air systems to further enhance the Ostland Armed Forces' capabilities.

As Dorvik forces away business, they find a home in Ostland
April, 4517

Image
VDKV Reich Labor Service and Reich Construction Service alongside private construction companies provide local jobs to Ostlander's.

Wolfsheim - Ostland has become the home to several dozen major Dorvish corporations who have fled Dorvik due to the constraints of the "religious" government in Haldor. Notable Dorvish defense industry corporations have set up shop in Ostland, bolstering the industrial capacity of northern Ostland. Companies such as Theil-Hassel Technologies and Kasmetall have set up shop in Ostland where they have been given carte blanche to do business with whomever they please, this was done with the assistance of Ostfirma and the Volskdundorfische Cultural Association. The Ostland government has been very welcoming to the Dorvish businesses that have arrived at their doorstep, mostly due to the fact that numerous Dorvish nobles and noble families have taken up residence in Ostland throughout the period of peace in Dovani. The Dorvish forces once in Ostland had their ability to be stationed in Ostland revoked when the government in Haldor changed and the aging Grand Duke Magnus III called for the Eastern Land Council to issue a joint decree expelling the Dorvish Armed Forces from the country.

While Dorvish corporations have transferred over to Ostland, a notable amount of former Dorvish Army, Navy, Air Force and other security and intelligence personnel have arrived in Ostland, notably a crowd of wealthy nobles who also held Ostland citizenship. The cadre of officers attached to training the Ostland Landwehr also were granted homes for their services to the state and the bolstered VDKV presence in the country assisted in building a loyal cadre to the Grand Duchy of Ostland and the ruling class. The presence of such industries in Ostland will only bolster its own military forces but will also bolster its economy. Chief Engineer (who holds the most senior rank of Einsatzgruppenleiter I) Frank Kästner was placed in control of the constructions projects, it is projected that the arrival of the former Dorvish companies will net some 150,000 jobs and then will sustain another 50,000 jobs following the completion of construction.

Crown Prince Magnus coronated as Grand Duke Magnus IV
March, 4528

Wolfsheim - Grand Duke Magnus III passed earlier this morning in his sleep and shortly after Crown Prince Magnus Wilhelm was coronated in Wolfsheim as Grand Duke Magnus IV. Grand Duke Magnus is nearly 27 years old and is one of the youngest monarchs in the world, notably in Dovani. Grand Duke Magnus IV is one of the only Grand Dukes who has almost exclusively educated within Ostland and has close ties to the Kunhito community in southern Ostland. Ostland over the past several years had attempted to maintain itself as foreign investment and interest in Dovani has dwindled. Ostland, which has strongly condemned the foreign intervention into Dovani, has however, supported northern ally Kazulia in their quest for peace in Temania. Ostland has offered its military services for peacekeeping operations; something that Ostland has become skilled at. Ostland regularly contributes peacekeeping force to the World Congress and continually has voiced support for peacekeeping operations throughout the world.

Grand Duke Magnus IV selected veteran Landwehr officer General Wilhelm Karsten von Prochnow as his State Chancellor, personally swearing in the State Chancellor in the Eastern Land Council. It is likely that underneath the young leadership of Grand Duke Magnus IV and State Chancellor von Prochnow, the two will seek to re-build Ostland's reputation in the international world and will eagerly seek to continue their dominance in Dovani as one of the leading post-colonial nations.

Grand Duke Magnus IV eager about Dorvish leadership
October 4542

Wolfsheim - Grand Duke Magnus IV and State Chancellor Wilhelm Karsten von Prochnow discussed on state television the state of Dovani and the eagerness for a renewed Dorvish leadership spot in the world. Grand Duke Magnus IV has been on the throne for nearly 14 years now and Ostland has prospered underneath his rule. Notably in the field of economics and financial services where strategic leadership by State Chancellor von Prochnow, who served as a staff officer in the Landwehr General Staff, has lead Ostland through a series of financial "checkpoints". Grand Duke Magnus and the State Chancellor welcomed the arrival of Dorvik to "stability and order..." once again and stated that they would be reaching out to re-build the relationship that had been lost over the past several years due to "neglect" by their ancestral and ethnic ally. It comes at a time of much upheaval in Dovani as many within the world question, quite frankly, what the hell is going on with the drug addled regime in Hulstria and Gao-Soto. Grand Duke Magnus stated that the Touryou State has had its handful with processing refugee applications and security operations along the border, which Ostland has sent numerous troops and material to assist the semi-autonomous state in the south. When asked about the state of Hulstria and Gao-Soto the Grand Duke simply noted "It appears to the world that Hulstria and Gao-Soto has been overtaken by madmen who are hell-bent on doing all the drugs." which was reprinted in headlines across the world.

Ostland eager for stability in Tropica
February 4545

Wolfsheim - Grand Duke Magnus IV held a brief press conference with State Chancellor Wilhelm Karsten von Prochnow and called for calm with the recent news that Hangakore Watere, leader of the Tropican National Party, has seized power in Tropica. Ostland is no stranger to seizures of government, it has been faced with several crises over the past several decades regarding radical seizes of government. While incoming leader Watere seems to want to restore some stability, and sanity to Tropica, the Government of Ostland issued a travel warning for Ostlandic citizens in Tropica and offered any services that are needed for Ostlandic citizens to leave Tropica without any need for payment. While Ostland has taken a cautious posture, the Government of Ostland, notably the Grand Duke has invited Mr. Watere to Wolfsheim to discuss progress and cooperation in the future between the two Dovani nations.

Lourenne visits Ostland
September, 4547

Wolfsheim - Grand Duke Magnus IV received several high-ranking diplomats and officials from Lourenne in early September. The move was heralded as a move to deepened cooperation between Ostland and other Dovani states, such as Lourenne. Ostland is widely seen as one of the most stable, productive post-colonial states. Grand Duke Magnus IV was joined by a bevy of senior Ostland officials, including State Chancellor Wilhelm Karsten von Prochnow, State Secretary of Foreign Affairs Aleksandr Joachim von Bahr (who held joint Dorvish-Ostlandic citizenship), President of the Eastern Land Council Adalwin Enzensberger, Minister of Defense and Chief of Staff Jannik von Fellgiebel-Riesch and several others attended the meeting. The topics were Lourennian investment in Ostland, focusing namely on building up the energy sector and continuing a number of infrastructure projects that are being operated by the VDKV. Ostland is fertile land for investment in terms of the energy sector, where Ostland has a plentiful number of oil and gas reserves. While many of these discoveries have come within the past several decades, the Ministry of Finance and Economics has capitalized and created the Eastern Oil Corporation (Ostöl AG) which has complete and total control over the Ostlandic reserves of natural gas and oil. The state owned enterprise has mostly funneled its profits into infrastructure and building pipelines that are waiting to be connected to other countries.

Another topic on the table was the discussion of future military training and arrangements with Lourenne. The Ostland Landwehr has undergone a radical transformation underneath Minister of Defense and Chief of Staff Jannik von Fellgiebel-Riesch and he is expected to unveil plans for the massive overhaul within the coming months. The reform was partially started but interrupted by the outbreak of tensions on Dovani and with the arrival of assistance from Lourenne, it is possible that the reform will gather steam again and move onto a full ahead charge into the newly ranked "Middle Power" according to the Terran Economic and Military Power Rankings.
