Romania Returns Transylvania

Romania has announced that it will accept the Hungarian demands for a return of Transylvania. Accordingly, the territory has now been reunited with the country, greatly increasing its size and strength. It is unlikely that a success of this magnitude will deter the Hungarians from issuing further demands for their remaining lost territories.

Romania Rejects Hungarian Demands

The ultimatum's deadline has come and gone without a Romanian reply. Outraged Hungarian officials have already denounced Romania's government, claiming they are 'destabalizing the region' with their insistence to adhere to 'unlawful treaties'. Both nations seem to be preparing for a war that may well erupt at any day.

Hungary Demands Southern Slovakia

Following up on their vows to redress the Treaty of Trianon, Hungary has demanded the return of Southern Slovakia from [From.GetName]. The [From.GetAdjective]s have not yet responded, but the threat of war in Hungarian rhetoric is but all too clear. Rejection may well lead to a new war in the region.

[From.GetName] Returns Southern Slovakia

[From.From.GetName] Rejects Hungarian Demands

Diplomatic negotiations have broken down, and today [From.From.GetName] publically rejected the Hungarian demands for the return of Southern Slovakia. Outraged Hungarian officials have already denounced [From.From.GetName]'s government, claiming they are 'destabalizing the region' with their insistence to adhere to 'unlawful treaties'. Both nations seem to be preparing for a war that may well erupt at any day.

Hungary Demands the Vojvodina

In light of their previous successes in obtaining the return of lost territory, the Hungarians have now demanded that Yugoslavia return the Vojvodina. As the Yugoslavs try to find a diplomatic solution, Hungarian impatience has already become more and more clear, and should the Yugoslavs reject the demands it is unlikely a peaceful solution will be found.

Yugoslavia Rejects Hungarian Demands

In a clear act of defiance the Yugoslavs have rejected Hungarian demands for the Vojvodina. Hungary, on its part, has made no efforts to step down its threats of using force to secure its 'lawful territory'. Both nations seem to be preparing for a war that may well erupt at any day.

Hungary Claims Overlordship over Slovakia

  The below description is one of several available for this event.
The Hungarians have raised claims that Slovakia should once more be a part of their nation, either as an integral part or as an autonomous region. An ultimatum to this effect has been issued, backed with the threat of force, and diplomats from several European nations are in a frenzy trying to find a peaceful solution to this latest crisis.

[From.From.GetName] Rejects Hungarian Demands

  The below description is one of several available for this event.
A diplomatic crisis has erupted between Germany and Hungary, concerning the fate of Slovakia. [HUN.GetLeader] had previously declared that Slovakia was a core interest of [HUN.GetNameDef], owing to its historical ties with Hungary. His government expected to be consulted on any measure concerning Slovakia.

German leader [GER.GetLeader] has refused to accept any such demands, calling them "foolish and dangerous interference in the internal affairs of a sovereign nation."

With tensions running high, more and more observers are wondering if Hungary might resort to violence to deliver a fait accompli.

Renewal of the Rome Protocols

  The below description is one of several available for this event.
At Hungarian instigation, Italy, Austria and Hungary have renewed the Rome Protocols originally signed in 1934. The agreements pertain to economic development and rapprochement. Essentially a declaration of friendship, there are signs that it may lead to an official alliance aimed at counteracting the growing revisionist and expansionist tendencies of Germany.

Horthy Assassinated

Reports have emerged from Hungary that Miklos Horthy was shot by a lone gunman today after leaving the Parliament building in Budapest. Thought he was immediately rushed to the hospital, doctors announced that he was already deceased by the time he arrived. The gunman, shot by police as he tried to escape the scene, has been identified as a communist party member.

The assassination has caused an uproar in domestic Hungarian politics, as Horthy's anti-communist leanings were paramount in keeping revolutionary elements at bay. Without the old admiral at the helm of the political scene, it is likely that communist influences will increase dramatically.

Austria Denies Referendum

Austria has outright rejected the Hungarian calls for a referendum, despite Hungary's increasing belligerence. The latter has accused the Austrian government of flagrantly disregarding the democratic rights of their people. They have stated that they will not shy away from the use of force to protect the Austrian people's desire to be reunified with their Hungarian brethren. Both sides have now begun to mobilize, and war seems inevitable.

Bulgaria Submits to Romania

In response to a Romanian ultimatum, and faced with immediate Romanian military action should they refuse, the Bulgarians have made significant changes to their government to make it more Romania-friendly. Bulgaria has accepted all of their neighbour's demands, and it is unlikely they will refuse further requests. As a result, it can now only be regarded as a Romanian puppet.

Yugoslavia Rejects Romanian Demands

Despite being faced with Romanian demands for a 'drastical restructuring' of their state, and the threat of military force if they should refuse, Yugoslavia has rejected the ultimatum. Even though ample pressure was exerted on the country from multiple directions, the Yugoslavs are resolved to defend their nation with tooth and nail. Romania has now declared war, and it is not inconceivable that other nations might partake in a partitioning.

Yugoslavia Partitioned

At Romanian instigation, Yugoslavia has been issued an ultimatum calling for a 'restructuring of their state'. Faced with pressure from multiple neighbours at once, the Yugoslavs have seen no alternative but to accept, and a partitioning of the nation is presently under way.

Coup in Romania

As dissatisfaction with the country's leadership has risen to dangerous levels in Romania, Prince Michael has now instigated a coup with the aid of substantial elements of the military. Early reports indicate it is successful, and King Michael has already announced he has assumed the role of head of state, intending to give Romania the leadership it requires.

King Carol II Abdicates

Pressured by powerful elements in his government, King Carol II saw no choice but to announce and sign his abdication. His successor is King Michael, but many of the dictatorial powers obtained by Carol have been vested back into the government and so it is unlikely the young King will be able to wield similar power as his predecessor.

Following his abdication Carol appears to have emptied his expansive bank accounts and has fled into exile, taking up residence in one of Mexico City's more expensive neighbourhoods with his mistress Magda Lupescu.

Yugoslavia Submits to Romania

Faced with Romanian demands for a 'drastical restructuring' of their state, and the threat of military force if they should refuse, Yugoslavia saw no other course of action than to submit. The announced 'restructuring', however, has not only resulted in the partitioning of Yugoslavia in its constituent states, but has also involved the installation of puppet governments.

It is clear that predominantly Romanian interests have been served under the pretense of the right of self-determination, and that Romanian influence in the region is continuing to grow.

Yugoslavia Claims Bulgaria

Now, this propaganda has taken a drastic new turn as Yugoslavia has outright staked their claim to the Bulgarian region. As both nations ready their forces, war may well erupt at any moment.

A new semi-independent state, the Banovina of Croatia, has been called into being, and though it is still nominally a dependency of Yugoslavia, the government's influence in the region has now been greatly reduced.

Yugoslavia Recognizes Soviet Union

Yugoslavia, even more stoically than other nations, has for years refused to recognize the communist state that is the Soviet Union.

Whether this means an opening of the Yugoslav state to communist influence remains to be seen, but the tone of the announcement was surprisingly cordial.

The Pan-Slavic Worker's Congress

Disagreeing with fundamental aspects of Soviet communism, the Yugoslavs have taken their own approach to the ideology.

It is likely that they will soon attempt to bring their neighbours into the fold, a move that could seriously upset the balance of power in the region.

Iceland Takes Control of Foreign Affairs

With the capitulation of its union partner Denmark, the Icelandic Parliament has taken control of its own foreign affairs, and in doing so has essentially become a fully independent nation.

The Panay Incident

[USA.GetAdjective] and [ENG.GetAdjective] gunboats were attacked by [JAP.GetAdjective] aircraft in separate actions today, while evacuating Western civilians from the front line in the war between [JAP.GetName] and [CHI.GetName]. Despite being clearly marked as an [USA.GetAdjective] vessel, the USS Panay was hit by two bombs and sunk, with three [USA.GetAdjective] and one [ITA.GetAdjective] citizen killed and others wounded. In a separate attack on HMS Ladybird, one [ENG.GetAdjective] sailor was killed.

Both the [USA.GetAdjective] and [ENG.GetAdjective] Governments have issued strong protests. The incident highlights the increasing tension between the three foremost naval powers.

The recent Panay Incident has spun out of control. Outrage in [USA.GetNameDef] has led to several prominent politicians to demand an immediate reprisal against [JAP.GetNameDef].

With the two great powers on the brink of war, few observers still hold hope that the situation can be stabilized.
