Dear allies and friends of eRussia, a very significant event took place this day. Today, yes, today Hungary stopped being an empire. Yes, i know that we crushed them on the battlefield in the middle of august, stripped them of half the world. But we know that it is not regions that make a nation strong, it is the morale, reputation, the desire and ability to fight and conquer other nations. Despite the fact that Hungarian occupation stairs Russia in the face once again, I can gladly announce - we thrashed Hungarians. But first things first.
A beginning of the end
I would not like to explore military history, it is very simple. Russia, the USA and Mexico united against Hungarians and simultaneously with their brave allies gave them hell. Major part of Ukrainian population decided to take advantage of weakening of their invader with the help of their ex-EDEN friends too. Everybody pulled at once and almost threw Hungary back to their home regions.
What I want to explore is the behavior of our rivals. At first Hungarians tried to resist severely. We remember the first battles in Mexico, which were very hard. Nobody could predict if we can rise superior to stronger enemy from a potent alliance. Hungarians fought fiercely and did not want to surrender an inch of land. However, we showed courage, endurance and stood our ground. By the middle of the war came the news - allies of Hungarians had persuaded them not to grasp more than they can hold. We felt that on the battlefields - they gave up on the USA, they wanted to play real politics and concentrated on on Ukraine and Russia. It was the first warning bell that proved: we castrated their imperial ambitions. But the story of the decline of Hungary as an empire was not over.
Volga Vyatka as an apogee
According to new realia, Hungary focused on fighting for Ukrainian and Russian colonies. However, they recieved a news that shocked and enraged them at a time: France, ally to Russia, in order to preserve the congress, entered the war and struck Volga Vyatka occupied by Hungary. Hungarians went all out. And lost.
It was after Volga Vyatka they completely lost heart. Russia and Ukraine took back their regions with little resistance. I could feel the impotence of Hungarians and collapse of their morale (they almost impeached their president for his failures). But I have seen other things too. A nation that lost huge territories in a minute raged itself out, but accumulated rancour. We all waited for the spring to start unwinding. And we did not have to wait long.
Time of cold-blooded premeditation
The next Hungarian campaign to the North-East was not so doughty. We saw the cold calculation. We saw that hungarians did not hesitate to turn on Combat Orders for battles (wow, they were ambitious before and didn't waste the money to keep weak colonies), until the last minute, so as not to risk losing at the very end. We saw that they do not take their time to make it to the Pacific. This nation has not yet been broken, but we saw that it singed feathers on its irrationally inflated self-conceit.
So we came to erasure of Russia and the last region left to Ukraine. It was difficult to take a stand in a direct battle. But we knew that our time comes at the morning dawns and our way is resistance "partizan" war. Ukraine, insulted by Hungarians, finally decided to show that it is not a country of slaves, as the world previously thought, but a country where one can still find strong people. And then began the rebellion that brought us final victory.
They own our regions, but they are crushed
We learned that Hungarians can be defeated. Our chief weapon is unity, courage, perseverance, desire to go all the way and not give up even if the enemy already has more than 50 points in a battle. And what did we see? It turns out that Hungarians have not been able to recover psychologically. We overthrew them in all the battles. Ukraine took back several regions in a row and won a direct battle. Russia regained the North Russia. The fighting could go on, probably Hungarians could manage to nail down both us and Ukrainians, but the most important event in the last year occured in our part of Europe: Ukraine began to dictate the terms to the Hungarians. As states Ukrainian MoFA, Hungarians realized that to restore their former power is beyond their capacity and capitulated.
So from now on the empire will not hold on power and will of the invaders, but only on a set of agreements, concessions and permissions from the colonies. WE HAVE WON! And i think that we need to continue using this strategy for another enemies.
