The Second Russo-Japanese War is an ongoing military conflict primarily between Japan, the Union of Midway and Russia. It began on May 29, 2012, when Russia invaded Japan after diplomatic negotiations to solve an ongoing dispute of Hokkaido and the Kuril Islands failed, prompting Russia to conduct start what they call a preemptive war to "avoid a Japanese invasion of Russia". The Union of Midway honored treaty obligations with Japan, and declared war on Russia on the same day.
Background[edit | edit source]
After the Fourth World War Russia had gained control of Hokkaido. Russia invaded Hokkaido during the Fourth World War because the National Socialist Japanese Workers Party had staged a successful coup d'état of the local government. Japan and Russia then began negotiations to get Russia to return Hokkaido, but negotiations failed because of the Kuril Islands dispute. On May 29, Russia annexed Hokkaido and invaded Japan claiming that they believed Japan would invade Russia if they didn't.
