- His Excellency the President of the Kamchatka Republic, Feodor Vladimirov, using a candlestick telephone he acquired from a friend for the first time
Feodor Vladimirov is a former Imperial Russian Army major general who became the President of the newly founded Kamchatka Republic. He was a commander in the Russo-Japanese War and then a member of the White Movement in the Russian Civil War.
When the Russian Empire collapsed and the White Movement fading into insignificance, Vladimirov established the Provisional Russian Government in Kamchatka, which was later renamed the Kamchatka Republic when the Soviets won the civil war.
While officially a republic, Kamchatka is in practice an autocratic military dictatorship under Major General Vladimirov. Starting his tenure as President of Kamchatka in 1924, Feodor imposed martial law in the country and introduced universal conscription for men between the ages of eighteen to forty-five years of age, including a sentence to six months in prison or the death penalty if they do not join. These men are forced to serve in the White Army of Kamchatka, the last army in the defunct White Movement. He ordered his troops through his officers to track down and eliminate suspected communists and communist sympathizers all over the Kamchatka Peninsula in a purge called the Kamchatka Cleansing.
In spite of his heavy-handed dictatorship, Feodor is an inept administrator; he is not a statesman than he is a military man. He is deeply unpopular with the people though he manages to put them in a vice grip using his own secret police, made up and managed by the few surviving members of Russia’s Okhrana. In recent events, Major General Feodor Vladimirov has allied the Kamchatka Republic with the Republic of China under Chiang Kai-shek, a Chinese military leader and political leader of the Kuomintang.
Feodor Vladimirov is a military tactician in the former Imperial Russian Army, naturally gifted in land-based warfare.
Politically, Feodor was an adherent for a democratic Russia; he expected the Russian people will do away the Tsarist regime that ruled the crumbling empire for three-hundred years, hoping that a democracy would be set up in his country. He began to lose faith in a democratic Russia when the Russian Republic, under the provisional government of Alexander Kerensky, began to fall apart. And when the Russian people rallied to the Bolsheviks under Vladimir Lenin, showing their support to establishing a communist Russia, Feodor completely abandoned democracy, remarking
Feodor Vladimirov’s personality can be summed up like this: Feodor is a leader with poor social skills; he is moody, sensitive, hates loud noises, and does not know how to handle to criticism, nor does he know how to properly express his emotions and thoughts. He becomes irritable quite easily. Feodor’s greatest strengths are his courage, patriotism, intelligence, and his integrity but because of his weaknesses combined with his execrable leadership, he is not well received by his own people and the international community.
Unlike Admiral Alexander Kolchak, Major General Vladimirov does not seek support from foreign nations, instead he wants to liberate Russia and its people with "Russians and Russians alone, not British, French nor Americans". He is distrustful of any and all influence from the allied nations who backed the White Movement until they betrayed Kolchak to the Soviet forces. Consequently, Vladimirov has every reason to be distrustful of support from a foreign country.
Because he possesses poor social skills and a distrusting attitude from outside influence, President Vladimirov does not possess the set of skills that is required of him—The President of Kamchatka—when he would one day seek support from the rest of the world.
Vladimirov loves eating eggs.
