Broken Alliance by YNot1989 Broken Alliance by YNot1989
*September, the ESA agrees to allow the Russian Space Agency to begin launching from Kourou, French Guiana.
*October: The Visegrád Group meets to discuss a number of issues pertaining to European Union and NATO integration, specifically the Economic policies of Western Europe and their increasing weight on the Eastern European economies.

*Moscow-Berlin Accord is signed between Russia and Germany, increasing trade between Russia and Europe
*Parliamentary Elections in the Ukraine end with accusations of mass voter fraud by Russian operatives who oppose NATO membership. Riots soon break out and NATO forces prepare to deploy to Kiev to restore order. The move is delayed when Russian troops assist the Ukrainian military in taking back control of the capitol. As tensions mount President Putin threatens to embargo oil and natural gas exports to Europe if NATO continues to, "interfere with Russian affairs." The Second Cold War begins.
*A coalition of NATO countries agree to continue trade with Russia and not get involved with American military buildup efforts in Eastern Europe. The Berlin Treaty is signed at years end, effectively dividing NATO into two Blocs.
*The Visegrád Summit ends with America promising a massive influx of money and weapons to Active NATO members, known as the Polish Bloc by the media; while Eastern European NATO forces agree to allow the positioning of US nuclear countermeasures in Europe.

*Belarus signs BRCU Treaty with Russia creating the Union State. The same year Russia annexes Georgia.
*The Commonwealth of Independent States and the Customs Union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan are reorganized into the Eurasian Union.
*The US begins technological transfer to Eastern European allies.
*President Obama, facing little opposition from a mostly defunct Tea Party movement in the face of a revived Russian superpower, pushes through a number of tax increases to pay for a number of military programs to combat the Russians, defunct programs like the Linear electron laser and the Electromagnetic Rail gun are revived while Prompt Global Strike is given a massive boost in funding.

**This scenario was conceived by STRATFOR founder, and geopolitical/economic analyst George Friedman. I did my best to illustrate his very interesting scenario which you can read about in great detail in his books: "The Next 100 Years," and the "Next Decade"

Is this a prequel to the Second Renaissance, which also mentions a Second Cold War between America and Russia?
Ah I see this is a prequel to your other map, the Fall of the Union State. You should really make a prequel map for Second Renaissance, to at least show how everything went to hell between now and then.

Its interesting how, with this actually playing out nowadays, how the alliances are indeed shaping up to look like this. Britain and the US assisting East Europe directly, while Germany and France remaining more rhetorical with their threats.

I'm aware that the Eurasian Union is to become a real thing come 2015, but please correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it just an economic union? Or will maps have to be redrawn?

You are quite naive if you believe an Economic Union is ever just about trade regulations, the Europeans tried that with the EU and its failing spectacularly. The Russians aren't so naive; the Eurasian Union is about consolidating power around the Russian sphere of influence and securing a buffer zone between Russia, and the American sphere.
