Natives of other geopolitical zones under interim governments of their sovereign states, must sign agreements with Russia Federation etc. of Southern Countries Union now for military assistance, cooperation, relations to defend territorial borders of their sovereign states, fix their lands and economies. Only the Sword decides.
