Referenda in Occupied Territories to be held door-to-door due to “security issues”


The occupiers are trying to mobilize Ukrainian men and women as “cannon fodder”, denounce Kiev authorities

Despite the international community’s outcry over Russian President Vladimir Putin’s call to mobilize 300,000 reservists to fight at the front, the Kremlin continues its hasty plans for annexation. From tomorrow until next Tuesday, referendums will be held in the partially or fully occupied territories (Donetsk, Lugansk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhya) – false from the West’s point of view – to join the “Russian family”, announced Tuesday from Moscow .

“The vote starts tomorrow and nothing will prevent this,” the head of the occupation administration in the Kherson region, Vladimir Saldo, told Russian television. The talks will take place door-to-door for four days, while polling stations will open on the last day, the 27th, the pro-Russian separatists in Donetsk explained. Former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and current Security Council number two is confident that the four areas will “integrate into Russia”, as happened in Crimea eight years ago. In this region of Donbas, the invaders plan to include minors between the ages of 13 and 17 in the referendum in order to “artificially compensate for the catastrophic lack of participation and thus mislead the vote,” Ukraine’s security service denounced on Thursday.

Tension in the invaded country has increased following Putin’s latest maneuvers. And it is that, apparently, the 300,000 reservists are not enough for him, he also wants to recruit the Ukrainians who still remain in their homes, as reported on Thursday by the mayor of Melitopol, a city in the Zaporizhzhya region. “Men under 35 are advised to leave the occupied territory immediately via the Crimean-Georgia route,” the councilor asked, denouncing that the invaders “are trying to mobilize the Ukrainians as cannon fodder.”

A practice that has spread to women in occupied Mariupol, where pamphlets have appeared asking women to enlist in Russian military service. “This indicates complete despair and understanding of the approaching defeat. The Russians are desperate,” the city council has published on Telegram, where a multitude of graffiti of the letter ‘Y’, a symbol of Ukrainian resistance, has been seen in various corners.
