Good evening, and welcome back to FFN: the foremost front for Russian news internationally. With Christmas over and New Year's on the way, those who follow the Gregorian Calendar are ready to celebrate the upcoming new year on January 1st. However, the Russian Federation was shocked to find itself the victim of another insidious attack by the Global Liberation Army, or more specifically, Omar Al-Ghazi. This afternoon, the terrorist was set for a trial taking place as the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation, where President Dmitry Molchanov was in attendance to proclaim his guilt and decide his sentence. Only 15 minutes after the trial began, the building was rocked by a powerful explosion from the courtroom where the trial was taking place. Emergency services were called to the location to find a terrifying sight: a fire in the building and a deployed chemical weapon.
Firefighters on scene at the Supreme Court only 10 minutes after the initial blast. Witnesses described several survivors flinging themselves from the open windows, screaming in terror.
Brave firefighters on scene, along with survivors of the incident — including even the President himself — were admitted to various hospitals across Moscow to be treated for injuries received in the blast, as well as to be treated for possible poisoning. The Defense Ministry dispatched military chemical specialists from the 6th RKhB brigade to deal with the chemical dispersed from the explosion.
The chemical weapon, as seen from a camera present on nuclear-chemical-biological troops sent in. The "smoke" was seen originating from the remains of a rudimentary vest containing vials and canisters. Surviving victims were described as suffering vivid visual and auditory hallucinations, intensely concerning heart rates, and intense muscle spasms
While the exact nature of this new chemical agent is unknown, what has been shown coincides with a series of chemical attacks across the world in small towns utilizing a similar agent back in 2040. Whether or not this is the same chemical agent or a different one has yet to be disclosed from samples obtained and sent back to the Ministry of Defense, but it is clear that Omar Al-Ghazi's intentions were clear: an assassination attempt on President Molchanov's life. Despite his success in detonating a chemical weapon in the heart of Moscow, Omar was found dead on-scene, bringing an end to his reign of terror across GLA territories.
Omar Al-Ghazi: the man who held the world in a 5 year grip of terror. Rest in Hell.
(OOC: Omar Al-Ghazi is not truly dead, for those of you who do not keep up. This was another ploy engineered by the terrorist to give a false sense of security and safety to the world, as well as an attempt on President Molchanov's life utilizing his toxin.)
