The Battle of Yeltsingrad was a major confrontation and the first battle of the Second Micronational War on Terror, which took place on August 29, 2022. The battle took place in the city of Yeltsingrad, Sprinske Empire, but the day after the battle, Mikhail Gorbachev died at the age of 91, and the city was renamed to Gorbachevgrad in his honour.

Along with being one of the most deadly battles in Kolniari history, but also being one of the most culturally and politically significant, since the BDA was severely weakened after the battle, it led for Matteo Catania to succeed from the BDA and make the Mafia Republic.


The Second Micronational War on Terror began on 24 August 2022 with the Sprinske Empire declaring war on the Bomb and Destruction Association. With the declaration of war on Sprinske, the People’s Democratic Republic of Sprinske would ally itself with the Sprinske Empire, but despite the BDA and PDRS having similar ideologies, the BDA attacked the PDRS for allying with the Sprinske Empire and saw them as “traitors”. With the majority of Micronations against the new movement of the BDA, they would join the war and expand the conflict. The Sprinske Empire and PDRS then developed new plans to invade North Kolniari and liberate it from BDA rule.

Beginning Sprinske Attack

By the 29 August 2022, the Sprinske Empire and the People's Democratic Republic of Sprinske began a campaign to get rid of the BDA in North Kolniari, especially in one of the Sprinske Empire’s major cities, Yeltsingrad. They meticulously planned the assault down to the last detail, and even some backups in the event that the main plan failed. The Sprinske Empire brought the new ‘Sting MK1’ to the battlefield, a simple medium-ranged artillery piece made from paper and elastic that fires a small paper projectile that causes a stinging sensation when it hits its target, hence the name. Sting MK1’s were effective at the time, so the PDRS were also supplied with them just before the battle started.

The plan was that the Sprinske Empire would use deception tactics to make the BDA think that they would charge directly up the hill, but in reality, they were going to go through the bushes and attack them from behind. The PDRS would go around the back of the bushes and also hit the BDA from behind. When the battle commenced, it turned out to be nothing like what was originally planned, and turned to chaos as the Sprinske Empire tried to go through the bushes, but they had grown so much that it would be impossible to get through them, so they had to abandon the initial plan and instead were forced to charge directly up the hill.

Coalition Resurrection

The People's Democratic Republic of Sprinske had successfully taken most of the BDA’s southern claims, and began heading north to meet with the Sprinske Empire’s army and defeat the terrorists. When they arrived in Yeltsingrad, they expected to see the Sprinske Empire’s army waiting to attack from the bushes, but instead seen them clashing with the BDA in a very disorganised fashion, they had even left most of the Sting MK1’s in Rio De Sprinske, and only a single Sting MK1 was used in the battle, but eventually it got lost in the bushes, leaving Emperor Aaron I and some of the army looking for the weapon, eventually just giving up on it and going back to battle.

About 2 hours later, following a temporary truce for both sides to have lunch, the BDA organised a terrorist attack on the People's Democratic Republic of Sprinske, with their main target being Führer Zachary. There were at least 7 assassination attempts on him during the attack, but all of them failed, and eventually, he was able to rally the rest of his army and defeat the terrorists. Meanwhile, the Sprinske Empire were successfully pushing the BDA back, and began targeting their leader. Eventually, a large amount of the organisation’s members switched sides, including a Former Prime Minister of the Sprinske Empire.


The battle ended in victory for the Sprinske Empire and People's Democratic Republic of Sprinske as most of the BDA had already surrendered, with only their leader still active despite his claims that the organisation still had more members and was planning another attack very soon. The next day, Yeltsingrad was renamed to Gorbachevgrad after Mikhail Gorbachev’s death.
