Sugrivik News reporters have published their investigation of the corruption in the ranks of the UEF officials. It turns out that Frank Moss, Head of the EG Main HQ customs service, as well as two of his deputy and several captains of supply ships were in touch with The Family. Journalists were able to identify a scheme whereby toxic waste was imported into the system. Smuggled goods were being delivered to the Popovich station, where ships carrying supplies for the operational purposes of the main system outposts were forwarding it to EG Main HQ. Then the ships supplying the small research outposts at EG Prime were dumping the waste to the planet surface.

A spokesman for UEF said that currently Moss and others mentioned by Sugrivik News were suspended from their posts and put under house arrest. All available evidence are being verified.

A small informative note:

As many of you know EG Prime is still not colonized. The main population of the system resides in EG Main HQ and other stations. This is mainly due to the rather meager allocation of funds by the federal government, since most of funds were allocated to Sugrivik, the system opened up ten years earlier. During all these years after the system discovery and construction of the Popovich station, only four research stations were built at EG Prime: Alpha, Beta, Gamma and Delta. Each station is designed for 50-100 people capacity. Alpha and Beta were built by Euryale Solutions and Future of Euryale. Gamma and Delta built by Colonial Drones together with Euryale Exchange. There is a rumor that The Family possesses few bases on the surface as well, but there is no reliable evidence of that.

The main processing and production facilities, as well as the headquarters of Colonial Drones, are located on the EG Main HQ station.

You know, I think it is too lenient punishment for them. My father in law died in section B2. They deserved a clean walk through the airlock, and instead they got a clean room and three meals a day!
27.09.3301

Today, there’s been a shootout between the police and five members of The Family at the outer side of the ring at sector F18 of EG Main HQ station.

Doctors are fighting for their lives. No civilian casualties. All thugs have been eliminated.

Witnesses are reporting the sounds of battle near the houses of some high-ranking UEF officials.

Astrocontrol operator, Bob Somas:

I don’t know who they were, but they came out of nowhere! A military courier ship had departed an hour ago, and there was nothing on a radar, and then suddenly there is a mark at about 12 kilometers! While we have tried to figure out whats going on, Anacondas and other ships started falling out from supercruise! It seems that these psychos were at full speed and using the emergency drop-off! While everyone stood gaping at arriving ships, I noticed a few ASPs sat unmarked. And in nearly five minutes a few armed men in combat suites entered the control room and politely asked us to leave.
21.10.3301

The spokesman informed that some of the UEF board of directors’ members, have attempted a coup and tried to capture EG Main HQ, but timely and swift actions allowed to prevent that. Unfortunately, some of the conspirators were managed to escape. Councellors Frank Pan, Pyotr Tasil, Lydia Kravez are declared wanted.

Today all the news agencies in Euryale have published a New Year address from the Head of EGU faction to all the citizen of Euryale:

Dear friends. This year was a turning point for us. Our system and all of us have gained independence. We had a lot of obstacles to overcome along our path, a lot of difficulties, and a great loss and deprivation. Not everyone was able to live through it and share the joy of victory with us. Their hard work and dedication will not be forgotten! They will stay in our hearts forever!

But let’s not rest on our laurels! There will always be new challenges ahead, new obstacles, and those to whom our independence, our achievements and our home will be a desirable prey. Such is the injustice of the universe.

And yet, I do know that together we can stand against it. Only United Euryale allowed us to overcome the difficulties of the past year, and only the Union of us all will help to overcome the future!

Happy New Year!

02.01.3302

Ships of the Expeditionary Corps in Mat Zemlya system managed to destroy the main forces of corporate mercenaries from Mat Zemlya Universal & Co. Their scattered forces are now either surrendered or fled from the system.

Executives of Mat Zemlya Universal & Co strictly denied any involvement in the incident and assured they did not give orders to attack the EGU search parties.

Supply contracts for the Earls of Mat Zemlya have been renewed
06.01.3302

Technicians at Weil Orbital in Putamasin system reported recurring failures in both astrocontrol systems and guidance systems of the station’s meteorite protection and point defense.

Yes, we have heard about the so-called "technological plague". I'm sure this is not the case. And frankly, I think that most of the problems at those stations were caused by negligence and non-compliance to the operating procedures, and the remaining ones are outright sabotage.

We observed abnormal power surges in astrocontrol tracking and point defense guidance systems of the station. I had to black them out to avoid damaging the equipment. So now we will proceed with checking all the related sensors, antenna arrays and all the 20 kilometers of connecting cables

- said Samu Mgamna, the head of technical service of Weil Orbital station.

07.01.3302
The situation at the Weil Orbital in Putamasin system has deteriorated. Today its point defence system gave a volley at the ship approaching the station. It did not suffer serious damage and quickly left the dangerous zone. The starport had to be closed for as long as it takes for technicians to ensure that these incidents will not happen again. Flight control service on Baffin Gateway reports that Weil Orbital station transponder transmits the identification codes of Putamasin Life Incorporated.
08.01.3302

Technicians from Baffin Gateway in Putamasin system reported that they were able to reconnect multiple tracking satellites onto their control center.

Unfortunately, our equipment is not designed for the number of satellites to be operated by astrocontrol on Weil Orbital, so we will not be able to track full system traffic in real time. However, periodically we will be switching to other satellite groups in order to not leave the system patrol without cover
- said Ekaterina Rumyantseva, head of the control service at Baffin Gateway.

09.01.3302
Ships of Expeditionary Corps have been sent into Putamasin system to assist in patrol procedures, as most of the system security ships are being locked at Weil Orbital docks.
10.01.3302

Today the control service at Baffin Gateway in Putamasin system observed a large concentrations of ships near Hartog Terminal, Brongniart Observatory and Brahe Survey while switching to a different tracking satellite group.

Over some time they moved to Weil Orbital. Ships of Expeditionary Corps were able to intercept them at 30 kilometers from the station. The battle engaged.

11.01.3302

It was reported that the Expeditionary Corps of EGU have suffered heavy losses, Admiral Nathan Fillion was seriously wounded, and his flagship destroyed. According to anonymous sources from the government, the Weil Orbital’s defense system opened fire at the Corps ships, when numerous PLI forces managed to push them back to the station. Within five minutes station was shelling EGU forces, ignoring the PLI mercenaries, until station technicians put its main reactor down.

Complete destruction was avoided thanks to the strike force under the command of EGU Vice-Admiral Lin Fey supported by the ships of independent pilots. She hit the rear of the PLI forces and put them to flight.

12.01.3302

Technicians from Weil Orbital have reported that they were able to establish the cause of the fault for the guidance systems of meteorite protection and point defense, as well as restart the station’s main reactor. In several technological tunnels there was installed a special equipment intercepting the control of station defense systems. Evidence is that it was secretely installed by the security service of Putamasin Life Incorporated, when it became clear that PLI are no longer controls the station.

A complete verification of EG Main HQ and Baffin Gateway for the presence of this type of equipment is underway.

The medical stuff of the "Medusa" Military Hospital at EG Main HQ reported that Admiral Fillion’s condition stabilized, but is still critical.

Reporters from Sugrivik News have released a report on recent developments in Putamasin system.

Sunset of the despotic regime in Euryale? EGU gang is crushed!

It became known from our anonymous sources that during the last battle of the so-called Expeditionary Corps of EGU they have lost in killed and wounded up to 70% of staff and 80% of ships. According to experts, EG Union will not be able to quickly make up for such losses, and the more so to fight.

КAs it became well known to our viewers through the last six months and more, news from Euryale system stirs up our region of space. First, one gang of bandits, hiding behind the high slogans and alleged support of the people, staged an armed coup and, despite the best efforts of the democratically elected government, they were able to capture EG Main HQ. After that they invaded Ullese, incited the station workers to rebellion and attacked Ullese Natural Limited security service taking over Roche Works! Empire tried to hush up the case, saying that the security forces Natural Limited "allegedly" not adequately responded to the protests of workers and supported the actions of United Euryale First. A very strange twist, is it not? While Empire, as a matter of fact, lost its control over Ullese.

Then, apparently not willing to share with his former crime accomplices, their leader founded a new group, and being covered by the same slogans about the corruption and venality of the authorities he put a massacre at EG Main and its surroundings! After coming through all the shock, people are now dragging out their miserable existence on the verge of a humanitarian catastrophe. Attempts by the federal government to agree on humanitarian aid deliveries to Euryale were unsuccessful.

Yet again, these bandits manage to persuade the Empire represented by Empire Assembly in Putamasin to sell them Baffin Gateway! And then the question arises: why the Empire supports such barbaric regimes on its borders?

And now, under the false pretext of protecting "their" people on Baffin Gateway as well as supply convoys, what the irony, from pirate attacks, EGU brings their Expeditionary Corps into Putamasin. Of course the security forces and the federal system of the fleet could not close our eyes to this and attacked ships violators! But EGU, using provocateurs as before, started a riot at Weil Orbital. Unfortunately, there were not enough security forces to ensure order on the station and the federal fleet had to retreat in order to prevent civilian casualties.

However, the fleet, together with the security forces of PLI carried out a brilliant operation on the results of which we have reported previously.

Our analysts expect that without its "Corps" EG Union regime will fall in the next month and as Euryale is freed from that gang, democracy and the law will prevail again!

14.01.3302
Technicians from Weil Orbital report that they have fixed the station’s transponder and now it transmits identification codes of EG Union.
15.01.3302
The press secretary confirmed that the Expeditionary Corps did suffer serious losses -
Yes, we have suffered heavy losses, but do not think that our determination has weakened so much that we willingly and without a fight get back to the miserable state of the previous years.

EG Union declared that their ships will not leave until they find the missing convoy.

19.01.3302

23.01.3302

Euryale Today reports that FNS O'Brien was seriously damaged immediately after dropping from the warp into the conflict zone, and was forced to flee the system. Also they tell the story by sergeant Neville Pullovsky, one of the pilots of the Fourth Squadron of Expeditionary Corps who was watching the event:

So, me and my mate, Mikhalych, sat down on the tail of one cobra and started diggin’ holes in her, huh. She wiggles-wobbles, kicking her afterburners trying to drop us, but we kept it tight. Long story short, Mikhalych was lucky to shot it right into the power plant and it stalled. Well, we went for a laser walk on her guns a coupla times and then left alone.

Now we were planning to return to the main bunch, and then the onboard computer just went crazy. Like a shot we figured that something biggie jumps down right on or head and took it to the heels. Retreated for two and a half clicks, dropped heatsink and went adrift. Here, this fat carcass starts to fall in. Sure thing, I had seen cruisers, but not this close. All in all, he completed the jump and headed towards the main scrum. We have scanned it by passive sensors and were going to steal a march on it by fetching an arc, so to warn our pals, as we saw a series of flashes from one of the engines and a couple at the bow of the ship. Bang, and the ship began to heel on the left side with one of the engines clearly misfiring. In about a minute or two a Hauler launched from it and started to burn a rubber at full speed as a wing of condors went after him. Hardpoints deployed, clearly keen to knock him down. Well, me and Mikhalych, without second thought we started to chase them. They were so carelessly busy that we immediately cut out a couple. The remaining two went down shortly after that, apparently some rookie pilots. By the time we were done that Hauler already commited a jump. Mikhalych said that we gotta move away from the cruiser while it has not launched fighters, as he just started turning in our direction. Well, we circuited him by the radar limit and went to our crowd. Since that we didn’t see it.

EG Union government has refused to comment on the event. No comments from the Federation followed either.

Admiral Lin Fei has declared an ultimatum to the members of Family of Euryale.

I appeal to all members of the so-called Family. You have 42 hours to lay down your arms and surrender. Whoever does so, will get half of the maximum sentence for his crimes, the death penalty to be commuted to a life imprisonment. Those who do not wish to take advantage of this highly generous offer of the Government and attempt to resist the arrest will be eliminated.
13.02.3302
It has been known that the pirates have made an unsuccessful attempt to break the Euryale 6a blockade. It also became known that several dozen Family’s ships surrendered throughout the system.
14.02.3302

It is reported that after at the outposts learned about the bombing, the pirates have laid down their arms. Marines and police forces, unopposed, took control of Popovich Station and Grantt Enterprise.
16.02.3302

Euryale Today released the first part of report on the Family and a black market in Euryale.

Ever since the days of president Malcolm Jay Johnson, the predecessor of Guillaume Ledoux, Euryale residents knew that Grantt Enterprise can buy almost everything. Almost immediately after the construction of the station it came under control of the Family. It was rumored that they sponsored the election campaign of Johnson, but it was impossible to find direct evidence of that.

Grantt Enterprise is located at the very borders of the system, revolving around the tenth planet. Such a remote location, unique position of the Euryale 10’s orbit, as well as incomplete coverage of the system by the tracking satellites, allowed for all sorts of individuals to carry illegal goods in and out of the system. Grantt Enterprise had become a warehouse of illegal goods on the way to such a densely populated systems like Sugrivik, LHS 1020, LTT 700, Zelano and most definitely Synteini.

Later the Family was able to subjugate the market at Taylor Barracks, which allowed to earn income from the majority of transactions in the system as well as to settle on Popovich research station, thereby securing a readily available warehouse for illegal goods.

With Ledoux’s raise to power the situation has not improved in the system. Influence of Family continued to grow. They had acquired a number of settlements and many small bases across the system.

We can only tell at the moment that ship captain, two pilots, navigator and the first officer have died . The other members of the crew and passengers were found uninjured in an escape pods, placed into the anabiosis state. The first examination showed that the ship has not received any visible damage, it was landed gently on the planet and then de-energized.
21.02.3302
It is reported that the EGU government have sent another diplomatic ship to Kerebaei system.
23.02.3302

25.02.3302

Today press secretary of EG Union responded to some questions by journalists about the diplomatic Corvette found a few days ago.

According to the ship crew’s stories hyperspace jump into one of the systems became stalled. Scientists have not been able to establish the cause of this phenomenon, which every captain encountered at least once. So, following the security protocols, everybody except the captain and one of the pilots had to stay in escape pods. So far we have not established the reason why the bridge was full of officer stuff, how had they received the injuries incompatible with life, and why those who were in escape pods were also placed into anabiosis.

Now technicians work with black boxes, data banks of the ship as well as with personal electronic devices of the crew members and diplomatic officials onboard to find out what did happen. However, a preliminary analysis showed that the memory of all these devices has been carefully erased.

The investigation is ongoing.
