After the Tobrak Prison Break in 2009, many POWs led by Farah Karim founded the Urzikstan Liberation Force, a western-backed militia. Meanwhile, Omar Sulaman founded Al-Qatala instead of joining the ULF, as he was against the idea of any foreign presence within Urzikstan.
End of Russian Occupation[edit | edit source]
In November 2019, General Barkov and his forces were defeated in Georgia by a joint operation between the CIA, SAS, and the Urzik Militia. As Russia officially disowned Roman Barkov, the occupation of Urzikstan came to an end. However, there were still remnants of Barkov's men left in Urzikstan after Barkov's death who had avoided capture and continued Barkov's unfinished business in the nation by joining up with the Allegiance.
