Leaders,

The Altai Republic strongly protest the invasion of it's ally and fellow alliance member of Arborea. We demand Zar withdraw it's forces from the region immediately. If a transition of power is to take place it will be under Altai administration. The Arborean government has left this region in trust to the Altai Republic as payment of it's debts. As such legally this region is considered an unorganized region of the Altai Republic.

Please refrain from hostilities against sovereign Altai territory or we will be forced to execute Protocol 7A-CCC.
