For Immediate Release –
Operation Prevailing Liberty continues at a steady pace. Since our initial deployment in October, Federal Defence Union forces have liberated approximately eighty percent of the occupied systems within the Federal Defence Cordon, with four out of the initial twenty occupied systems remaining under the control of the State Protectorate. In total, fifty-one solar systems are under the control of the Federal Defence Union, forty-three of them sovereign Federal territory. The offensive will not abate until the entirety of the Defence Cordon has been returned to Federal control, of this one can be assured.
However, the situation within the system of Floseswin has become one of great concern and outrage for the Federal District of Nadire as well as that of the greater Federation, not to mention the employees and executive board of the Consultants. This potential violation of the CEMWPA legislation and the commissioning of a blatant crime against humanity by Lord Sarum must be answered with the full force of the Federation and Republic marshalled together.
To this end, we have consulted with the Federal District of Nadire as to how we can assist in repulsing the barbarous expeditionary forces of the Empire. Shipments of combat and medical material will be made available to Republic-aligned planetary forces should they be required, as well as the deployment of an NADSC experimental aerial warfare squadron under the direct command of Commander Charles Cambridge Schmidt, designated as Augen. Augen Squadron will be attached to Republic-aligned forces to provide close-air support and aerial superiority where needed.
Let it be clear that we are not abandoning our responsibilities in the Federal Defence Cordon. We have the utmost faith in our allies, especially those of Aideron Robotics and the Villore Accords in our mutual goal of liberating Ostingele, Ladistier, Costolle and Aldranette in order to mitigate the impact of the border conflict on the populace in the runup to the Federal Elections of YC122.
Nevertheless, we cannot stand by and watch as our allies in the Republic have the spectre of mass enslavement encroaching on their territory once again. I personally appeal to the Federation Navy to offer their assistance to the Republic, so that we may withstand these dark days united as one with our powers combined.
