The United Republics of Donovia are one of the Big Bads in the Decisive Action Training Environment. They are an obvious stand in for modern Russia, right down to the fact that they used to be a world power and are working diligently to be a top tier power once again. They are an authoritarian state led by a small elite class with no political opposition who harness government and private sector corruption to increase their own power. They are perfectly willing to “support independence movements” in other nations, and “Donovian mercenaries” or advisors are common throughout the region. As I understand it, most training missions are not in Donovian territory, but Donovian interests are pervasive throughout all scenarios that may be conducted. They should never be dismissed.
