History (MORE WILL BE TOLD IN CHAT BECAUSE ITS SO LONG): When of age, he was chosen as the representative of the Landed Army of the Tsardom of Russia. He was reformed under the Regiments of the New Order. Then reformed into the Imperial Russian Army in 1721. In the late 1700s, he was in conflict with the Turks once again. He led a group of Zaporozhian Cossacks to the Kuban River and settled there. He gained the representation of the Kuban Cossack Host. He then fought Napoleon in the Napoleonic Wars and then fought the Japanese in 1905. When WWI broke out, he was ill equipped. He was recalled home to fight the Bolshevik uprising. He then converted to a Bolshevik and fought against the Whites and Ukrainians. He fought the Japanese in 1939 in Manchuria as the new Red Army. He held exercises with his later foe, The German Wehrmacht Heer, in Poland that same year. He fought WWII valiantly and was captured by the SS and put into the SS-RONA's (Russian SS Volunteers) famous Kaminsky Brigade by SS (Klaus Mayer). He fought back and left to fight for the Russians. He then stormed into Germany and defeated the Nazis. As the Cold War grew, he began to have a fond hatred of NATO. He was sent into Hungary, Somalia, Ethiopia, Cuba, Angola, Afghanistan, Cambodia, Vietnam, Korea, and many other places to fight Capitalism. In 1991, he was reformed as the Russian Ground Forces since the USSR fell. He fought the insurgents in Chechnya in 1993-1996 and again in 1999-2001. He served as a U.N. guard in Kosovo in the late 90's. He also fought the Georgians in 2008 as a result over land disputes between Russia and Georgia. In 2014, he was sent to Crimea on Peacekeeping and Stability manouvres, despite Chaos ensuing up in Kiev. In February, his brother, Yuriy, refused to serve the new government on the ground of "that they were damn fascists, and I've already had to deal with their shit in 1941". He was mobilized up to support the Donetsk People's Republic, Anti-Fascist militias, and the Autonomous Republic of Crimea. He is firm on the support of these movements on the grounds that they are against Fascism, in a land that shares common history with his own country. He is currently depressed about the matter, and refuses to discuss it with anyone who is not on a need-to-know basis, and those who are (i.e. President Putin, Generals, Ministers, Officers, other CIS armies/nations), he keeps the topic very frank.
FOOTNOTES: He also has a crush on Ukraine, not for anything history related, but because he thinks she's very pretty.
Don't make me put my jackboot up your ass... just sayin...
