UPRZ soldiers advancing with a BT-7 in Kaszubia
|Casualties and losses|
The Białemorze Conflict was a war between the United Provinces of Rovsnoska and Zaporizhia (UPRZ), Provisional Government of National Revival (commonly referred to as Vojiskiy Pozrika) and Lienzeberg. It began with a UPRZ invasion of the Bialemorze and Kaszubia regions on 25 June 1942 and ended five months later with the Krvnigrad Peace Conference on 15 February, 1943. Despite superior military strength, especially in tanks and aircraft, the UPRZ suffered severe losses and initially made little headway.
The UPRZ made several demands, including that Pozrika cede substantial border territories, claiming security reasons—primarily the protection of Krvngrad, 41 km (25 mi) from the Pozrik border. When Pozrika refused, the UPRZ invaded. Most sources conclude that the UPRZ had intended to conquer all of Pozrika and Cezakia, and use the establishment of the puppet Communist governments, while other sources argue against the idea of the full UPRZ conquest. Gradinskan and Cezak forces repelled UPRZ attacks for more than three months and inflicted substantial losses on the invaders while temperatures ranged as low as −43 °C (−45.4 °F). After the UPRZ military reorganized and adopted different tactics, they renewed their offensive in February and overcame Cezak defenses, however domestic issues halted any further progress.
Hostilities ceased in February 1943 with the signing of the Krvnigrad Peace Conference. Pozrika ceded the Carasovia and Kaszubia territories to the UPRZ and had a communist puppet government set up. UPRZ losses were heavy, and the country's international reputation suffered. The invasion would be condemned internationally by the League of Free Nations and various other countries.
Pozrik-UPRZ relations would be continuously strained thought the early 20th century, as the Provisional Government of National Revival was made up of former Vojiskiy generals, many of whom led various anti-communist and monarchist armies during the Vojiskiy War. The government of Vojiskiy Pozrika has never been recognized as legitimate by the United Provinces. The anti-communist partisan movement known as the Legija was also known to operate within Pozrika and obtained material and financial support from the Provisional Government. The Legija was seen as a legitimate threat to the stability of the UPRZ, and is a major factor many historians point to as a reason for the invasion of Pozrika.
