Citizens and allies of the State! As of today, at 03:10 NEST, the Federal occupation of Athounon has been driven off!
I would like to extend my gratitude to Strike Commander Diana Kim and 1st Lieutenant Rusty Tsero in particular for aiding me throughout this operation, as well as members of the State Public Defenders for their invaluable assistance in ensuring State space superiority by hunting down the last of the Federal strugglers and capturing the system’s infrastructure hub.
The system of Athounon is one of many within the Colonial Development Zone that is a rightful claim of the Jastokuaskaanonen Saikkan Luovhaikya, but it also holds another, secondary point of interest.
This system is also part of the Triglavian Collective’s ‘Forest of Glorification’, a series of k-space systems that, while not woven into Pochven, still host an array of Triglavian assets and forces. More notably, Athounon has been reported to have been the site of a number of recent planetary landings by Veles Clade, an unprecedented occurrence ever since the termination of the Triglavian invasions of YC122.
As many of you may know, I have long been a vocal advocate for the pursuit of diplomatic contact with the Triglavian Collective, believing that to be by far the most effective and efficient route to follow in order to provide humanitarian aid to the State citizens stranded in Pochven that may require it, as well as re-establishing contact with our woven colonies.
I am aware that Veles Clade in particular are more than capable of engaging in diplomatic discussions of this nature, as seen in both their relatively considerate treatment of the worlds woven into Krai Veles as well as their ability to find an ally even in select hives of Rogue Drones.
Ever hopeful that a peaceful solution may be reached regarding our lost systems, I would like to formally invite both State and Veles delegations to my citadel in-system, ‘Port Mondturm’, where I shall strive to facilitate a neutral environment where productive diplomatic discourse may be performed. Vessels registered to all 8 Megacorporations, the Caldari Navy, the Chief Executive Panel and Veles Clade have all been granted docking access, and will retain it for as long as they do not act against the goals of this initiative.
Naturally, should the CEP object to this initiative outright, they would have my full co-operation in its swift suspension.
Glory to the State!
