Ave Intergalactic Summit.
At 20:00 on this day of March 1st, YC 122, Republic space superiority of the system of Floseswin was broken. After several days of near constant fighting, and a final six-hour battle for the infrastructure hub, combined 24th Imperial Crusade and Curatores Veritatis Alliance forces were able to wrest control of the system from Ushra’Khan and their allies. I would like to first publicly express my eternal gratitude to all who followed my lead in the nearly three-month long offensive, and my eternal regret at the tens of thousands of lives lost during it. I can not save those who have already perished, but those who have not yet died on the planet of Floseswin IV may yet be.
I still have work to do in this regard. It is safe to say, however, that this conflict is far from over. This is not a victory, and it is by no means permanent. I now fight to defend against the inevitable counter-attack.
To the Matari, who have so valiantly fought to keep the system: know that I did not come here to take your people. I came here to save mine.
The next steps are up to God.
