A new eastern order

The war with Germany had been very costly for Poland on a financial scale. The confederacy needed allies and trade partners with the war winding down, stubborn members of Congress would reject closer relations with Athens and they were suspicious of France.
Envoys were sent to Finland and the two Russia’s to meet in Warsaw with president Vizimir.

Prime Minister Konsta Selänne read the request for a meeting in Warsaw. He looked at his schedule. It appeared to be clear. Besides it had been agreed that Poland was important regional member. So the Prime Minister sent back a reply indicating he would arrive in Warsaw shortly. He would put together a small group to travel with him, each member representing the different cultural group in the Kingdom.

The Finnish delegation would be met with and addressed while the Russians took their time. Vizimir would meet with the Prime Minister amid a large media gathering trying to get the best photo to upload about the occasion. The Finnish Prime Minister would be taken to the Presidential Palace in Warsaw after all the fanfare and necessary precautions to travel safely.

“Welcome Prime Minister Selanne, I hope your trip was a pleasant one, we’ll be having our meeting in the West Wing.” President Vizimir would take lead and walk his guests into the West Wing where several foreign dignitaries over the years, as they walked into a room with a long table and fine chairs some assistants would tell them where they would sit. The Polish, Finnish and two Russian flags would be on staffs in the room indicating Poland’s desire to arrange relations with the three nations. “If there’s anything you need, let me know we have all sorts of refreshments available and other services if needed. But thank you for coming here today.”

The Tsardom would send the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Natalya Ivanova, to the conference, along with some aides. The government had also sent a request asking whether arrangements had been made to account for the illegitimate status of the NUSSR, indicating that any deference shown to the NUSSR at the expense of the Tsardom would be seen as an attack on Russia’s sovereignty. While the government was willing to concede that the lands of the NUSSR were temporarily operating independently of the Russian government, it would not stand for any measure that dared to indicate the NUSSR might be a more legitimate government than that of the Tsardom.

Konsta would smile and return his polish counterpart’s polite greeting. “It wasn’t that much of a trip honestly, basically just like visiting a friend next door.” His aids would offer the President some glasses. “And consider these a gift from your northern friends. We had these made as present and an offer of congratulations on your recent victory. Of course I also have some drinks to go with them, but that can wait until after work is done.”

The issue of the two Russian states was in the eye of the confederate, a Russian matter, for simplicity sake Poland recognized Russia but with two states running it. If they were forced to choose which one, it would be simpler to just avoid them entirely.
To placate the tsardom for now, Poland would avoid answering back on sovereignty and simply reply “it is a Russian matter, not a Polish one.”

Vizimir smiled warmly at the glasses appreciating their craftsmanship, “I hope we drink to good tidings today. I think the Russian states might be late, we could wait for them or proceed between Finland and and the confederacy if you wish.”

Fashionably late because of state matters, the New Union of Soviet Socialist Republics would send Minister of Foreign Affairs Lavr Obolensky to the Conference.

With both the Russian states arrival Vizimir motioned them all to the long table to have a seat.

“Everyone, thank you for coming here. I will try to be brief as you know you are all busy people. I have brought you all here to discuss the possibility of a trade and treaty organization for our region.”

“And what would be the goal of this organization?” Konsta would ask. “Are you asking for us to commit to each other militarily or just a pledge to work together in times of hardship?”

“I am looking to establish a cross national economic, military and intelligence pact between our nations. Or at the very least the basis for one, the pact would provide protections for our nations as we stand together in defensive wars. Economic growth would be a guarantee, and we would be able to protect our interest better together.”

“I see, well the thing I think everyone can agree on would be economic. What proposal do you have to support economic growth in our nations?”
