Comrades of the Soviet Fatherland!
Under the direction of our generalissimo Stalin, we have waited in the Pripet marshes until the fascists made their dastardly move into the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic. While our comrades-in-arms have stopped their attack, we have come out of the bog and struck against their flanks. The 2nd Shock Army has conducted a preparatory attack for us which has given us the maneuvering space to annihilate a Hungarian formation tasked with guarding their supply lines. As our front in the south holds firm, we will encircle and annihilate the German Army Group Ukraine before the summer is over. From then on, our battle-cry will be: To Berlin!
