Ever since the end of the Civil War, Garindina has been in shambles. But because of multiple reconstruction decisions by King Aleksandr and Queen Nadia V, Garindina has finally fully reconstructed itself.

After the death of King Aleksandr back in 2013, Queen Nadia V has passed multiple reconstruction bills since she was crowned.

 

Jasanasburg celebrated with late-night parades and a fireworks show. Mayor Iryna Cheban announced a new monument dedicated to the hard-working people of the city. With the city full of block parties and festivities, it is recommended that tourist to visit the city before the end of the week to join the festivities.

In other News, the Federal Council announced a tax break upto 5% off of income tax. This shows that the Grivna may become fully stable in the coming months.

Last week, a new military training system was announced and details have just been released. The system is now more disciplined and difficult. With training lasting a full 3 months and longer hours. Many disapprove of this change but Aleksandr Torosov says they are necessary. 

"The deal with these changes is to help better prepare our soldiers for the defense of the nation." -Aleksandr 

The effects of these changes vary over the 4 military sectors. With Special Forces taking the brut of these effects. 

"Training was already difficult to root out the ones that don't want to be here. This just makes it more difficult for the ones that want to be here"- Special Forces Operator

Along with these changes, the military has chosen a new main assault rifle, the MSBS.

"It's a semiautomatic rifle with a 30-round detachable mag. With the ability to switch to a rate of fire of  700–900 rounds/min."

MARSHAL GENERAL ALEKSANDR TOROSOV ANNOUNCES NEW MILITARY OPERATIONMarshal General Alexandr Torosov of Garindina

Just one hour ago, Marshal General Alexandr Torosov announced a new military operation. The operation, code-named "Operation Snowfall," has been leaked, stating that the government has started researching technology for ICBMs.

Marshal General Alexandr Torosov has stated that this investment and research will help protect Garindina. Now, over to Igor and his interview with the Queen.

"Thank you, Rasia, and now, your majesty, why did the program start"?

"Yes, well, Garindina has always been lacking at the wurld stage in terms of a modern military. But since 2018, I've been trying to modernize our military, and the one thing we've really been lagging in are missiles.

"So how did you come up with the idea of Operation Snowfall?"

"Oh no, that was all Torosov's idea." "I only permitted it, and he put it into motion."

"Ok, so are there any other plans you have for further modernization?"

"There are rumors that the government is looking into nuclear energy,  are these rumors true?"

"Well, no. I will confirm that we are looking into cleaner energy and ways to make them more productive.  But we do not have the technology to study nuclear power. "

"Thank you for your time, Your Majesty."

"Your welcome."

"I'll send it back to you, Raisa."

Well, that was Igor and Queen Nadia V, and in other news, plans for a new national park in the West Glacial Territory are now underway with camp sites and trails being set up. That was all our time for today, Garindina, until next on the NNG.

FIRST DUMA ELECTIONS IN THE TWELVE OBLAST SCHEDULED FOR NEXT MONTH.

"Following Her Majesty’s speech, excitement about the first duma elections is high. With candidates already selected, there is much hope for the future of Garindina. But not everyone is so enthusiastic. A few members of the Federal Council are openly speaking against this decision, with many rallying behind them. It has become clear that there is a political divide in Garindina."

"Raisa, despite the Queen’s speech only being a half hour ago, many have already spoken their opinions. This has caused some to believe that the reforms that will counter corruption will just widen this political divide.

"You’re right, Igor, the "reformation," as the Queens call it, is causing some unwanted problems. But wait, we just received word that Queen Nadia has stated that “These elections will happen, even if the national guard needs to be deployed to voting stations” via social media.

"That is all for the news at noon; tune in later for the news at six."

“Despite excitement for the upcoming elections, fears of Economic Collapse and the return of the old government are growing. As these fears grow, riots have broken out all over Garindina. In Kogangelsk, ten have been killed in these riots against the elections. These deaths have further enraged the people causing people to call for Queen Nadia’s abdication. In which she responded with this-“

To those who call for my abdication, I say this to you. I am the Queen of Garindina. I will not abdicate the throne for those who only seek power and wealth to take power. To those who have lost a loved one to these riots, I am sorry for your loss. When I announce my anti-corruption reforms on Saturday, all politicians suspected of corruption will be held in federal custody and investigated for possible corruption and criminal activity.”

 

”Raisa, do you support these elections? I know I do. More power to the people.”

”Yes Igor, I do. But those who fear economic collapse do have a valid reason. As corruption in Garindina goes farther than just in the government. In other news. In other new, arrest warrants have been issued for Minister Josif Nikitin and Head of the Anti-Corruption division, Stepan Sokolov on corruption charges. The police arrested Stephan Sokolov last night in his home in Braysk. Resulting in the Anti-Corruption and Bribery Agency to be dissolved.”

”Josif Nikitin has yet to be apprehended, and the national police have begun a man hunt for Josif Nikitin. Resulting in increased police presence at airports, private and commercial. Military presence and federal police presence has been increased on the borders of Garindina as well.”

”That’s all for today, at the National News at noon. Let’s all hope this all blows over soon.”

 NNG News Report: The Federal Assembly Legalizes Recreational Marijuana Use

Date: 10/08/2023

spacer.png

Raisa: Good evening, Garindina. I'm Raisa Ivanova.

Igor: And I'm Igor Petrov. Today, we bring you a significant development that's been making headlines across the nation.

Raisa: That's right, Igor. After extensive deliberations, and the final decision by the Czarina. Marijuana has been legalized for recreational use. Individuals above the age of 21 will now be allowed to possess and use marijuana for personal recreational purposes, within certain regulated limits.

Igor: This comes almost exactly twelve years since the smoking ban. This landmark decision comes almost exactly twelve years since the implementation of the smoking ban, reflecting the evolving attitudes toward substance use and public health in Garindina.

Raisa: Advocates of this legalization argue that it could help curb the illegal market, generate tax revenue, and offer adults a regulated avenue for consumption.

Igor: Nevertheless, critics voice concerns about potential health implications, particularly among younger individuals. The government acknowledges the complexities of this decision and is committed to addressing these concerns through a comprehensive framework.

Raisa: And that brings us to an interesting point, Raisa. In light of these new developments, it's important to note that while marijuana has been legalized, politicians and public officials are explicitly barred from its recreational use. 

Igor: This directive comes directly from the Czarina herself, who stated that, "Those of us in leadership roles must remain clear-headed and focused on the tasks at hand, ensuring the well-being of our nation remains paramount."

Raisa: Despite the legalization of Marijuana, the crackdown on tabacco products is still in affect. The Czarina has also made it known that new alcohol consumption policies are soon to be implemented. With the goal of lowering alcohol consumption by those under 20.

Igor: I’m Igor Petrov

Raisa: And I’m Raisa Ivanova

Both: and that’s all for the news at noon.

Second Garindinan-Korelian War: February 14–June 20, 1999

Igor: Today marks the 25th anniversary of the beginning of the Second Garindinan-Korelian War. The war claimed the lives of over thirteen thousand people, along with the destruction of Dovgazalsk, capital of the now Korelisk Oblast.

Raisa: As we reflect on this somber milestone, it’s crucial to remember the profound impact of the war on both Garindina and Korelia. Scars from the war still remain in Dovgazalsk, serving as a poignant reminder of the sacrifices made and the enduring resilience of the people. Memorials will be held in both Parsa and Dovgazalsk later today. Now we head over to Ivan, who is interviewing a veteran of both in Korelisk and in the Civil War.

Ivan: Thank you Raisa, I’m here with Mikhail Petrov, a veteran of the war. Tell me Mikhail, if you’re OK with it, about your experience in the war.

Mikhail: Well, if you’re old enough to remember the time, the war was pretty much inevitable. The ethnic tensions and the lack of international recognition of Korelio was seen as an opportunity to reintegrate Korelio. I’ll tell you about the Battle of Dovgazalsk. It was late March when we reached the city. They were under equipped, but they had the advantage of urban warfare. So we bombed the city. Missiles, artillery and air strikes. By far the worst two and a half months of my life. But we did it for our families and our country. Sorry, got something in my eye. But, we must remember those men we lost, they were family and friends.

Ivan: Thank you, Mikhail. Back to you, Igor and Raisa.

Igor: In other news, the NRP seems to be fracturing, with apparent infighting becoming more and more common…
