IC (Vladimir Aleksandrov)
Vladimir stared at the beings around the table, most were there in name only, using advanced quantum communications to work with him in real time. "We have been waiting for this day." It wasn't a statement, it was a fact. The Council had attacked humanity twice before, once in the light and the other in the dark. The USSR was not ruled by a fool. He had seen to it that they had had been ready to move with very little notice. They'd had countless plans of attack and defense.
The training exercises the USSR fleets conducted always put them within striking distances of Council Worlds. He knew the STG had probably picked up on that, but the Council had to deal with the ISA as well. Guard it's borders everywhere, for every member species. That meant they were scattered. The USSR was smaller then they were, but they had less to defend and no treaties to bind their armies.
"This won't be an easy war comrades. The Council does not appear to have been prepared for us...." That was odd, considering they fired the first shot. "...but that will change. We must be prepared for this. They have ruled the galaxy for centuries. They will not fold before us easily."
One of the holograms coughed, it was Yuri Romanov, the head of the KGB. "What of Shephard? We have an agent aboard his ship...she has not reported back with a response yet. Having him fight alongside our forces would be a public relations coup..."
Vladimir waved his hand. "I suspect he will fight with the Americans. It is of no consequence in the long run...."
