Wolfsheim Bacteria now a major threat in Ostland

The disease, first picked up in a checkup in Wolfsheim has become a significant health threat officials say. While there are no fatalities as of now, serious symptoms have developed such as rash all over the body, constant coughing and difficulty breathing. Antibiotics have been used to treat cases with some success however a developing resistance to drugs has been observed in newly infected persons. The bacteria appears to spread through saliva, coughing and sneezing, sexual intercourse and blood transfusions.

Wolfsheim Disease- Fatalities Confirmed, Widespread throughout the Third World

July 4296

The Wolfsheim Bacterial infection has spread throughout most countries within the third world with cases reported as far south as Tropica and as far east as Suyu Llaqata. Wealthier Nations such as Dankuk, Kazulia, Hulstria and Sekowo have not yet reported any infections despite their close proximity to Ostland. The Infection is now confirmed to cause death mainly via lung failure. Samples have been taken from fleas and mosquitoes confirming that they are carriers as well meaning that they are now likely sources of infection. The estimated death toll has reached 17 million. The use of antibiotics on earlier patients appeared to be a cure however even the strongest of antibiotics used on newly infected patients has failed to cause a difference. Breathing in air near a corpse of the disease also appears to lead to infection. Wolfsheim, the apparent origin of the disease has experienced the worst of the disease with corpses littering the streets and the streets deserted. Employees of the Ostland General Newspaper have been evacuated to the countryside where they will continue to update the public on the plague.

Border Crisis - Kunihito Ethnics Attempt To Flee Hulstria Into Neighbouring Ostland

August 4296

Tens of thousands of Gao Showan families are attempting to flee the Imperial Crownlands of Hulstria after hardline policies stripped them of their citizens' rights and religions.

Many of the displaced people - predominantly Kunihito - are now camped on the long border with Ostland hoping they will be allowed to enter and start new lives there.

The potential humanitarian crisis has been made worse by the deadly Wolfsheim Bacterial Infection, which has spread from Ostland into much of the third world. It is anticipated that it will not be long before it spreads to the large camps where sanitation is already said to be poor at best.

Hulstrian Reichskanzler Leopold Nimitz has adamantly denied driving Kunihito families out of their homes despite government policies which have made practising their most popular religions illegal and branding them 'Class C' citizens in their own country.

Herr Nimitz has also gone on the record to say that the Wolfsheim Bacterial Infection is an "oriental disease" and has blamed Gao Showan people and their low adherence to hygiene for its spread.

It is not known at this stage if the Ostland government will allow the mass numbers of people camped on its borders to enter, especially with the Wolfsheim epidemic to deal with.

Ostland: Millitary Deployed to Fend off Kunhito people

September 4296

The Ostlandian Armed Forces, severely hampered by the increasingly severe plague, have been deployed to the Hulstrian Border to repel any attempt by the Kunhito people to enter the country. In an emergency meeting, the remaining legislators of the State Council approved martial law and a "shoot on sight" protocol for the armed forces at the border. The vast majority of the remaining armed forces have been deployed here in anticipation of a potential Hulstrian incursion.

78 Kunhito Dead as Border Crossing is repelled

September 4296

Ostlandian Soldiers at the border followed the "shoot on sight" protocol when a group of a few hundred Kunhito attempted to cross. Warning shots were fired but these did not drive away the entire group. Those who continued to cross were shot dead while the remainder were forced to flee back to their camps.

Ostlandian Military Degrades

December 4296

The Millitary strength of Ostland has been significantly depleted the last few months due to the Wolfsheim plague's spread. Several sections of the border are now unguarded and the remaining troops have been spread very thinly to protect the integrity of the border. Some Kunhito have taken advantage of this and crossed the border. It is likely that many border crossers have caught the plague.

Ostland Must Decide on Hulstrian Ultimatum

February 4297

Hulstria has sent an ultimatum to the State Council in plague stricken Ostland: allow in our peace keeping troops or face being removed from office.

Husltrian Chancellor Leopold Nimitz has vowed to stem the spread of the deadly Wolfsheim disease which is currently ravaging third world nations in Dovani. The situation has been made worse by thousands of Gao Showan people massing on the border between the two countries trying to escape the harsh regime in Hulstria.

It is believed at least two brigade strength units of Hulstrian troops have now moved into the eastern extremity of the country ready to cross the border, and with Ostland's army already severely depleted by disease any confrontation would likely be very one sided.

Chancellor Nimitz said: "Law and order is breaking down in Ostland. We have told the Wolfsheim government they must accept our help. We will move in, take control of the situation and establish a segregated containment strategy to stop further spread of the oriental disease."

However, some critics say Nimitz has his eye on the long term picture and that any occupation would allow Hulstria access to not only raw materials but the Caltropic Lakes' and, subsequently, the strategically important Midway Canal.

Ostlandian Government Rejects Ultimatum

March 4297

The Remaining members of the State Council met this morning and agreed to reject the Hulstrian Ultimatum. Thought there is little chance for a successful outcome in a war against Hulstria, Ostlandian Officials remained stubborn in their approach to defend the nation to the last man.



Let them come, we'll kill as many as we can before we all die, the blood of Hulstrian soldiers will flow like the rivers before they infringe upon our great country!.

Coup Takes over Ostlandian Government, asks for Hulstrian Help

Late March 4297

One of the last remaining commanders of the Ostlandian Armed Forces General Dietrich Hohenstein led the remnants of his troops in a successful coup, overthrowing the State Council. He issued an order for all remaining troops to stand down and allow Hulstrian Peacekeepers to enter the country.

Hohenstein delivered the following statement following the coup

At 3:00 am today on the 23rd of March 4297, the remnants of the 4th Infantry Division under my command placed the State Council under arrest for treason. I have formed a temporary cabinet consisting of other members who will act as caretakers until this crisis is over. Our first action in Government is to accept the Hulstrian Ultimatum and ask for their assistance in dealing with this plague that has beset most of the continent. Orders have been given to any soldiers still out there to stand down and allow the peacekeepers to pass. This was not an easy decision to make but with our people's fate to look out for, we must do whatever we have to in order to survive. Provisions for martial law are still in place so please cooperate with orders given to you by police, soldiers or the incoming Hulstrian peacekeepers. May god protect our glorious nation.

Hulstrian Troops Enter Ostland

August 4297

Armed forces from Hulstria have entered Ostland with the official aim of preventing the spread of the Wolfsheim Bacterial Infection.

After being invited by General Hohenstein, who has taken control of the disease ravaged country, Imperial Crownland troops crossed the border with little resistance.

One of the first tasks announced has been a controversial measure to burn settlements within two miles of the border to stop the spread of disease.

Despite the World Congress Security Council voting to send a humanitarian mission to Ostland (Resolution 46), the Hulstrian government has said no further help is necessary.

Reichskanzler Leopold Nimitz said:"The Security Council was typically slow to react. We have taken control of the situation in this former colony and need no further assistance."

It is not known if Hulstria helped to instigate the coup in Ostland which allowed its troops to enter with such ease, but it is clear there is strategic value to Hulstria taking control of the country.

BORDERS CLOSED AS HULSTRIA TIGHTENS ITS GRIP


September 4298

Hulstria has officially closed the borders of Ostland to deter any attempts by the Security Council to send troops and support personnel into the plague-ravaged country.

All recognised land routes from Kazulia, Sekowo and New Verham are now being heavily guarded by Hulstrian troops backed up by the forces of Ostland's dictator General Dietrich Hohenstein, who invited his neighbours from the Imperial Crownlands into his country following a military coup.

Imperial Chancellor Leopold Nimitz said that any attempt to cross the borders would be met by force and that Reichsheer soldiers and their Ostland compatriots had shoot to kill orders, if necessary.

Furthermore, any citizens of nations backing intervention discovered in either Hulstria or Ostland would be arrested immediately.

Among the troops deployed in Ostland by Hulstria are the 5th and 8th armoured brigades, the 38th mechanised infantry brigade and several Greater Hulstrian brigades (mainly made up of conscripts and lesser equipped infantry) - a total of around 47,000 personnel.

Herr Nimitz has claimed that Hulstria has the situation in Ostland contained and that any interference would only help to spread the plague. He added that the actions of the Security Council 'Big Five' were those of self-centred imperialists and Hulstria was there to defend the interests of third world nations.
