Fall of the Union State by YNot1989 Fall of the Union State by YNot1989
2014: President Obama signs the American Energy Security Act directing more funds than any other country toward renewable energy sources. The bill is pitched as a way to achieve energy independence, but in reality it is intended to deprive the Union state of its main source of income.

2016: Jon Huntsman is elected President of the United States on a campaign of confronting the Union State and the Eurasian Union.

2017: President Huntsman signs the North Atlantic Free Trade Agreement often known as newNAFTA. The law makes it easier to sell American made renewable energy products in Europe.

2018: The US quietly funds nationalist groups within the Union State and the Eurasian Union, causing the Union Army to be stretched thin across Russia.

2020: With Fossil demand falling like a stone, the Union state economy collapses, as its government announces record taxation and austerity measures to fill the void left by their Oil and Natural Gas funds. Rioting breaks out across Moscow and other major cities, while nationalist groups rise up in the interior.

2021: Civil war breaks out in the Union State as a number of Union Army groups defect or desert the bankrupt government. Many flee to the Russian far East. The Eurasian union is formally dissolved the same year.

2022: A military coup sacks Moscow leaving the once proud city in ruins while President Putin seeks exile in Germany. The Union state formally dissolves and separatist forces begin to break away from the country. Poaching is rampant on the Western Border.

2025: The Russian Republic is established around the greater Moscow Metro, NATO forces aid in stabilizing the rump state of a once powerful empire. Vladimir Putin will remain in exile in Germany for the rest of his life.

**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"

Not when I created this, no. My more recent maps have Tartarstan relegated to a small state not much bigger than Austria.

Because some oblasts in your "future" Tartarstan    have: tatars ~1% of population,  russians ~ 90% of population.

ok. Chinese is 0.9% of population of USA. Let's paint  the map of "Great North-American Chinastan" :)

Wait what? Estonia expanded to include St. Petersburg - both an enduring Russian symbol and containing four times as many Russians as there are Estonians in existance? A Tatarstan that's three quarters Russian? Bwah?

Unless there is some serious ethnic cleanising going on these borders are crazy (like a lot of George Friedmans predictions - Russia fails due to demographic decline, but Poland and Japan don't? bwhahaha)

I don't entirely agree with Friedman's predictions (I think his beliefs about climate change are downright naive) This was just a guess at how a possible Russian balkanization would look, but he was quite specific about Estonia occupying St. Petersburg.

Simply because of this idea, you can already debunk that guy's predictions - he has no idea what he speaks of.

How about after a few thousand American troops are stationed in your country, along with billions of American dollars given to build up your military to guard against the Russians?
Reply
:iconalagremm:
Alagremm Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2011
Still nah. Even a build up military and a few thousand US troops, wont be enough to take that city.
Nazis tried to take that city for years. It stood in a blockade, without food, water, medicine. Many cold winters it stood there, without even military support and Germans could not take it. And that was at the peak of their power, with hundreds of thousands of soldiers and the best technology in the world.
And you think Estonian army and a few thousand Americans will conquer that city?

Honestly couldn't tell you. There are only 15000 Jews in the area today where 80% of the population are ethnic Russians. And unlike those in Israel these ones are culturally Yiddish, not Hebrew.

So were the Israeli immigrants, the European jews who founded it were Yids themselves. Hebrew was promoted as a pan-jewish traditional language
