The 5th mechanised infantry division headquartered out of Fort Ahmed in Movak has officially split from the army and pledged allegiance to former president Jake Sarkov. The division commander Major General Grigori Roma stated “ today the 5th mechanised infantry division will officially swear a new path of allegiance, that being to the true President of the republic Jake Sarkov. On my orders any soldier who attempts to seize our base will be dealt with as if they were a foreign invader”. The president has been briefed of the situation and is meeting with his national security council to discuss the matter further. Currently the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff Admiral Valinkov has formally dismissed the rouge general and has ordered his arrest.
