Operation Righteous Anger (Russian: Праведный гнев, Pravednyy Gnev) was the Romanovan code name for the Romanovan part of the secret NATO intervention operation in Donskoya to assist the Transitional Government of Donskoya in taking over their country from the Soviet Union during the Donskoyan Revolution for Independence during the initial period of 1 March-4 September 1978, and then continuing on throughout the Donskoyan Socialist Revolution and the Donskoyan Civil War from 1980 to 2008. The initial operation was to send "military advisors" to aid the Donskoyan separatists in their fight against the forces of the Greenland Soviet Socialist Republic and the Soviet Union itself. By the peak of the revolution, over 10,000 Romanovan troops from all branches of the armed forces were stationed all over Donskoya. After the socialist Democratic Left Party of Donskoya took over the country in a surprise coup, Romanova withdrew most of its "advisors", keeping only a token force of at most 2,500 troops in the country until the TGD retook control of Donskoya.

The New Dorsetian name for its military support is Operation Queer Seas, the Rosslandic name is Operation Parallelogram Black, and the Louisvillian name is Opération Charlatan. The name for the overall NATO intervention operation is Operation White Polaris.


The strategic command of Operation Righteous Anger was under the authority of Fyodor Kharenkov, the Minister of Defense. Tactical command in the theater of operations was under command of Admiral Georgiy Ufanayev, the Task Force Commander. Vice Admiral Pyotr Stutanov, Commander of the Romanovan Western Fleet, assumed responsibilities as the Task Force Naval Component Commander, stationed aboard USRS Lake Severnyy. Major General of Aviation Aglaya Puskova was commander of Romanovan Air Force aircraft involved in the operation. On 3 March 1978, President Olga Novets stated that Romanovan military action would be scaled back soon and was considering handing over command of the operation to either Louisville, New Dorset, or NATO. On 7 March 1978, NATO took command of enforcing the no-fly zone in Donskoya and was considering taking control of the rest of the mission. On 4 April 1978, the coalition agreed to have NATO command the no-fly zone, and the Romanovan Ministry of Defense stated that Romanova would relinquish command of Operation Righteous Anger as early as 1 September.
