The war was propagated by several Islamic militant groups, including the Muslim Brotherhood and ISIS. After a series of revolutions in the Arab World, the new Arab and Muslim leaders began to condemn Russia's actions in Crimea and Georgia. Several Muslim nations started to form a coalition to start what they referred to as the Jihad in the East. Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, Egypt, North Syrian Coalition, Albania and Turkey formed the Islamic Coalition, proclaiming in the New Caliphate. The Islamic Coalition also used volunteers such as Chechen rebels and Georgians to fight the Russians. The Muslim World then publicly proclaimed that it will wage a Jihad against the Second Red Scare in Eastern Europe and proclaimed that Russia would be the New Al-Andalus (Arabic: جديد الأندلس).
China and Japan felt threatened by the Islamic invasion, and nonetheless showed their support for Russia. Japan and China sent many military officers to fight in the Russian Armed Forces.
The Islamic Coalition's invasion was at first, nonetheless successful. They used propaganda tools to get western nations to support them, and it was later revealed that Barack Obama was a Muslim, and he was proclaimed the Caliph of America given the Arabic name Barak al-Hussein Osama al-Amirka, who used liberals in America as minions to support the Islamic war against Russia. After Vladimir Putin exposed Obama as a Muslim, he ordered the Russian invasion of Alaska which led the further culmination of the Russian invasion of North America in which the Russians collided with Mexican forces who were invading from the south which put Russia in a two-front war, starting the Russian-Mexican War. Eventually, the Russians retreated from North America for a while, since the two-front war initially devastated the Russian forces. Mexico then declared war on Russia and Ukraine, and Mexico formed an alliance with the Islamic Coalition. The Vatican City expressed their support for the alliance.
By 2010, the Muslims had believed that Russia was conquered, and that the Russian forces had disbanded. Amin bin Abdulaziz, the main leader of the invasion had proclaimed Moscow as a regional capital of the caliphate. He then began pogroms to attempt converting the Slavic populations of Russia to Islam. He ordered the destruction of Russian Orthodox cathedrals, and began trasnporting migrants of Muslims to build new settlements in Russia. He renamed St Petersburg to Fulani, after his wife - queen Maryam bint Haytham al-Fulani. Little did he know that the Russian forces had actually retreated into Central Asia, and had given weapons to the inhabitants of the conquered cities. St. Basil's Cathedral was converted to the Abdulaziz Mosque.
In August 20, 2010, the Muslim forces underwent a series of devastating attacks by underground Russian and Ukrainian militants, beginning the Battles of Moscow, Volgograd and St Petersburg. Afterward, the Russians - now having formed a military alliance with Kazakhstan, began to attack the Muslim forces. First, the Russians had sent forces to Serbia, using Serbia to invade Albania. Russian forces bombarded Chechnya. The Bulgarians also became involved, and showed their solidarity with the Soviet Russians, and the Serbians armies, and declared war against the Muslim Coalition.
Afterwards, Arab Christians began show their support for Russians, armies and militant groups of Arab Christians began to attack military bases in the Middle East. Russia also began recruiting Arab Christians to fight the invasion, often using them as translators between Arabic and Russian albeit the two languages are not related.
The Russians were successful in reversing the invasion, liberating all of its major cities, as well as Belarus. The Russian Air Forces began to bombard Middle Eastern cities, destroying large quantities of Riyadh, Doha, Kuwait City, Jeddah, northern Syria and Egypt. The Russians also bombarded the Vatican City in retribution for its support of the Muslims. The Russians eventually found Amin bin Abdulaziz, killing him in the process and showing his severed head to the Muslim World. His wife escaped to Mecca. The Russians also met some resistance, especially in the hostile neighborhood of Suweidi. The Muslim forces eventually surrendered in Russia.
The Russian soldiers were welcomed in Syria and Lebanon. Afterwards, the Russians continued their invasion of North America, and penetrated deep into Mexican-held territory. The Russians helped southern militants overthrow Caliph Barak al-Hussein in a military coup.
In 2008, Russia established a Marxist-Leninist government and began to influence other countries, without actually annexing them. The Russians also invaded Georgia in that year. Belarus and Ukraine on the other hand established monarchies, with the new Tsardom of Belarus and the Kingdom of Ukraine.
Many westerners feared the Russian influence in Eastern Europe, and began the era known as the Second Red Scare. In Moscow, Putin established the Russian Empire of Soviets (Russian: Русская Империя Советов). Afterwards, many countries in Eastern Europe and Western Asia embraced Russian influence. Armenia, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic began to embrace Soviet influence, Estonia and Lithuania later followed.
Eventually, the Serbian government called for the exit of all NATO force and increased Russian influence and presence. Aleksandar Vučić and Tomislav Nikolić both changed the Serbian flag back into the flag of SFR Yugoslavia, and announced a Socialist state in Serbia and renamed Serbia to the People's Republic of Serbia (Serbian: Народна Република Србија). Unlike the former Yugoslavia, this time the Serbs embraced Russian and Soviet influence. However, Serbia didn't exactly become a fully puppet state, they did retain some autonomy, and became more like a half-puppet state of Soviet Russia.
The Bulgarians also adopted the same tactic as the Serbians, they showed solidarity with Soviet Russia but didn't exactly welcome full Soviet Russian control.
The western nations viewed Russia's actions in Eastern Europe as a form of pure aggression, it was very evident especially in the Muslim World where many Russian embassies were raided, in Egypt, Syria and Saudi Arabia. Although at first, King Abdullah tried to understand Russia's side of the war, Amin Abdulaziz, his nephew and an Islamic imam convinced him that Saudi Arabia was next on the Russian aggression list and that if the Arabs and all the Muslims didn't take action, the Russians would persecute every Muslim in the world. Bashar al-Assad disagreed and openly called Amin Abdulaziz's claims ridiculous and paranoid. Lebanon's president Michel Sulaiman also condemned imam Amin Abdulaziz's claim.
