Pursuant to that fact, all powers granted in statute to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs are inherently exercisable by the General Secretary. 2: The founder and de-facto dictator of the region ‘USSD’ is an ambassador to the Communist Bloc, and heads its embassy, who goes by the name ‘Attero’ in the Communist Bloc and as ‘Vetelo’ in ‘USSD’. For the purpose of this order, they shall be referred to as ‘Vetelo’. 3: While ‘USSD’ is a leftist region, it has unapologetically partaken in anti-leftist activities, both militarily and through their independent actions. 4: ‘Vetelo’ has shown himself, through communications with a prominent figure in the region of ‘KAISERREICH’, to be anti-leftist, fascist and imperialist. He has betrayed the leftist cause, and leads his region under the facade of authoritarian communism. 5: The Communist Bloc, along with the wider NationStates left community, condemn and denounce any form of fascism and deceit by members claiming to represent the cause of anti-fascism. 6: ‘Vetelo’ has the audacity to pose as fighting against fascism on the dispatch section of his region, while simultaneously hiding his own dealings with the government of a far-right, imperialist region from his own people. 7: Official Bloc Communications are defined as the Discord server, the forum or other platform used by the Bloc. Executable actions 8: Under the Embassy Standards Act 2017, the embassy with the ‘USSD’ is hereby revoked, and all ambassadors from the region are blacklisted and are to be removed from the region. 9: The Ministry of Foreign Affairs shall immediately remove all ambassadors to the ‘USSD’ and its associated regions, and shall shut down all embassies in said regions. 10: ‘Vetelo’ is hereby officially condemned by The Communist Bloc, and is forbidden from associating with, joining or otherwise communicating with any members of the region through official Bloc means. 11: ‘Vetelo’ is hereby forbidden from becoming a citizen, or acquiring any other type of visa or access rights to the region. Any attempt to join under false pretences shall be classed as Deception under the Criminal Law.
