The year is 2014, Crimea has been anexed into the Russian Federation and has left Ukraine in a civil war. EU has imposed a series of sanctions against Russia in hopes of them backing down. It has proved very ineffective and made Russia move even deeper into Ukraine. During the cover of night a VDV battalion has airdropped mechanized forces on the island of Panthera which is located in the Black Sea and is approx. 100 KM south of Crimea. The EU has imposed more sanctions on Russia and NATO has sent a UK battalion to help UN with evacution of civilians in the region. NATO high command has declared all Russian forces on the island hostile, which resulted in a war declaration between NATO countries and Russia.
