SITUATION (Road to crisis - RTC):
After the Winter War of 1939-1940, the Finnish Government signed the Moscow Peace Treaty, forcing them to cede border areas to the Soviet Union. One of these border areas included nearly all of Finnish Karelia. With Karelia considered the heart and origin of the Finnish culture, this became a major source of grief for many Finns & as a result began "The Karelian Question". With many Finnish civilians being stuck on the Soviet side of this split and with no way to return to Finland, nothing could be done but to just integrate into the Soviet Union.
After 70 years of this split & the Finnish people now integrated into Russia, the people living in this area want all of Karelia reunited to fully form the Republic of Karelia. With supporters for this formation on both sides of the border, tension has been rising in the region. Unbeknownst to the Finnish Government the local military bases, situated in Karelia also see this as a worthwhile cause & have started to supply equipment and weapons to the supporters of this movement.
Last week a protest located at Virojoki, turned violent causing the local police to use force against the protestors. With this dramatic increase of violence, the local military decided to turn their passive support to a violent one & took over the town and the surrounding area. The following day these forces of the "Socialist Republic" have now begun their push West to fully secure the Karelian peninsula as to cement their claim of the area. With this push, these soldiers have begun to engage actively with the Finnish Soldiers trying to retake this area. With this turn of events, the Finnish Government has turned to its ally's for assistance.
With the successful advances on the southern peninsula and the elimination of an enemy motorized company with little casualties, 3CB has asked 42 Commando to continue their push into the peninsular and eliminate the enemy Battalion HQ located in the town of Kirkonkylä. With the capture of this town, it will cut off any forces left in the south of the peninsular and as such the Enemy SSM Battery has been neutralised by friendly F/18’s that have recently entered the AO allowing the deployment of an American Naval Taskforce to be deployed to the
Due to the increase of AT Mines used against the 51st IB, the ASG has been pulled out of the AO with them being replaced with a Mortar Battery from 51st IB to be used as supporting their attack on to the town of Kirkonkylä.
