Hello ladies and germs,
This article has been due for quite some time now, however believing such matters are to be dealt with in the right places at the right time, I chose to refrain myself. Until now. If our counterparts see fit to post in the press logs from EDEN summits and also manipulate them to try and find some sort of advantage, I feel it is only in our right to be able to reply accordingly to any allegations.
You will see me replying to articles such as this official statement, this press conference (of which I took the liberty to use google translate for) and this untitled document which appears in the aforementioned press conference, all hosted by the eUkrainian official newspaper.
Although we never had the strongest feelings for each other (like eRomania has for eCroatia or eUkraine for eTurkey for example), we’ve managed for a long time to keep decent and friendly relations with each other, since eUkraine joined EDEN. Unfortunately despite the efforts done by people like mihail cazacu (one of the biggest supporters for a eUkraine, EDEN full member) or oboj and blackpanther76 ( eRomanian supertanks who tanked for months to eliberate eUkraine from foreign occupants) to pave the road for great relations between our two countries, our friendship did not live up to its full potential. To the contrary, trust was lost, relations faded.
What happened? Continuos back-door dealings and agreements with eHungary, even when we would both be having direct wars against them, with ePoland (never thought I’d be fighting for eUkraine in Subcarpathia RW and see eukrainian soldiers fighting for ePoland, alas it happened). However, we got used to this sort of treatment for the sake of the Brotherhood.
But then, you got bored and despite our warnings not to pursue a war with our RL brothers, eRepublic of Moldavia, you pushed forward and had the audacity to call us “gypsies” and Moldavians “tilers” in your official papers for defending.
Yes, I am aware of the fact that there was, at first, an agreement, as we all are. What does not everybody know is that in spite of your demands and ultimatums at that time, you did not hold the higher ground.
Why am I saying this? Simple. At that time, Obersoldat, current eCroatian CP (at the time of writing), made an independent investigation regarding this matter. Not so long ago, I took the liberty to ask Ober to refresh my memory a bit and here is what he told me:
[20:16] <naufragiatu> so, I would like to ask you a few things
[20:17] <naufragiatu> mostly related to ro-ukr relations
[20:17] <Obersoldat> tell me
[20:17] <naufragiatu> which are not the best as everyone knows
[20:17] <Obersoldat> i know
[20:17] <naufragiatu> and which deteriorated badly after the ukr-rep. md conflict
[20:18] <naufragiatu> I remember back then you were Croatia's MoFA and made an investigation on the matter
[20:18] <naufragiatu> we even talked about it back then
[20:18] <naufragiatu> a bit
[20:18] <Obersoldat> i remember
[20:21] <naufragiatu> ok, can you tell me in a few words what was the conclusion back then? just to make sure
[20:22] <Obersoldat> ukraine broke the deal by not sending peace when they had initiative,and gave weapon supplies on mercenaries which was also breaking of the deal
[20:23] <naufragiatu> ok, thank you
[20:24] <naufragiatu> do I have your approval to show this response in an official statement in case the subject is brought up?
[20:24] <Obersoldat> yes
[20:24] <naufragiatu> great
[20:24] <Obersoldat> it was a report to EDEN countries back then
[20:24] <Obersoldat> so I stand behind every word I wrote
In the meantime, I have also managed to find the said report. Feel free to read it here. As well as Obersoldat in his report, eRomania feels like this was a turning point for eRepublic of Moldavia and such bad treatment turned them to their actual CoT alignment, something that does not sit well with our stomachs until this day.
Quite a big intro, eh? Here’s a pair of perky boobs for you loyal readers.
Now, getting to more recent events, we have this official statement from Day 1826 of The New World. Here we have bits of conversation given to the general public. No worries, the full logs are safe.
Let’s see what eUkrainian MoFA understands by “assurances about the safety of Romanian borders despite our enemies hostile provocations”:
[22:04] <Kromov[UKR]> You know, that Ukraine are doing all to normalize our relationships and return to the friendship. We say No tu huns, who propose us regions for NE Romania.
[22:06] <nauf[RO]> That should go without saying, while we're both still in EDEN
In my book not NEing a fellow EDEN member country really does go without saying and is not something eRomania should be thankful for or see it as a good gesture. However, as I stated in the summit, make the deal with eHungary and feel free to NE eRomania, dear eUkraine, if that is what you want to do.
And yes, I will stand by my words, I truly believe “ an MPP should be the result of the actions we would take to normalise our relationships, not the prerequisite for our issue”. However I don’t know what to say about how soon that would happen as long as by normalizing relationship you feel not proposing eRomania as NE at huns’ request is actually a step forward.
This MPP law felt nothing like a first step, but more like trying to force eRomania’s hand in a delicate matter, without heeding any of the words from our private conversation.
Now moving on to the other article and more impoartantly to the untitled document posted in the eUkrainian official newspaper as mentioned earlier.
“About Respect. In our last summit (28/11) we saw that Romania consideres itself superior to all other countries-members.
21:36 naufragiatu[R] as I find it disrespectful towards Romania a founding member of EDEN”
eRomania will not be ashamed of it’s statute as a founding member, we will always be proud about taking part in the construction of a true Brotherhood, no matter what EDEN may end up to be after years and years of existance.
Anyone curious what was I finding “disrespectful towards Romania a founding member of EDEN”? It’s about ”the issue of signing the treaty was not addressed for months”. I’m not even going to bother to talk about whether it is valid or not as long as not all member countries signature is there or how can someone talk about not abiding by a treaty which has not been signed. Still don’t know what I am talking about? I am talking of course about the Treaty of the Brotherhood of EDEN. I urge you to fiind the eRomanian signature. And yes, I still find it disrespectful towards eRomania that this „glitch” has not been addressed by the proper EDEN authorities and rectified.
Our loyalty is being questioned. I find this particularly funny. We’ve been fighting for years the same wars (alongside eCroatia) and kept one way or the other eHungary/eSerbia in their cores, most of the time. These wars became boring(both for eRO and our allies), drained EDEN countries of their resources, split damage from other countries’ battles. We’ve stopped them. We had a little adventure in Asia and now we’re back in our cores.
Now we have stopped any offensive campaigns and canceled any plans, due to lack of ability to fund them. Now we have no battle of our own, we fight for our allies. Lately we have been fightingt for eArgie against eChile, for eGreece against whatever opponent, for eTurkey in their brief skirmish with eHungary, for eRoC against eBrazil, moved our armies and helped liberate Portugal for congress, tried but failed liberating Netherlands for congress, helped eAlbania for their 100 year celebration and yet we are questioned.
Maybe more it is expected from us. Unfortunately we have not been blessed with a better geopolitical situation so we could have had any farming sprees without wars, instead we come after continuos wars, thus can’t put up a huge show of force all the time. Nevertheless we do our best and help our friends to the best of our abilities. If EDEN feels like our best isn’t good enough anymore, just say so and we will know where we stand.
In the end we are being lectured by someone who seems to care more about his own image: [21:52] <Kromov[UKR]uaporsche> I demand a summit about the violations made by romanian gov acording the Treaty. I will not be the laughing stock of the Ukrainian opposition and the rest of eden any more time.
We are being accused of lacking loyalty, unity, friendship and sacrifice by someone who managed to put a brick in the demise of TERRA and tamper directly EDEN-TERRA relations by passing a NE on eRussia because they were bored (http://www.erepublik.com/en/main/law/Ukraine/112344 ) a while ago, by someone who is not acustomed to setting EDEN prios as their country prios ([22:58] <&Nenya> having anything else in ukraine orders last six months besides your own rw's was a miracle ).
You pushed lately for an MPP, without heeding any of our words, without caring for the consequences that would affect our common friends and allies, tried to turn it into a „it’s us or eRo” situation. In more than one summit I asked the parties present who is willing to take the responsibilty of losing considerable romanian damage from the priority battles (set by EDEN’s military team) if I forced to pass the said MPP. No answer. Therefor eRomania will not apologise for avoiding an internal strife which would harm herself and EDEN, leading to dividing the community too just because one person does not want to „be the laughing stock of the Ukrainian opposition”.
Make no mistake, we will not answer to threats, to unmerithed demands nor will we take them lightly, no matter where they come from. Treat us in a fairly manner and we shall respond accordingly.
Thank you for your time,
P.S.: I thought I should insert another boob picture for all your efforts to read and comprehend this
