According to secret services – Moscow is planning a referendum on the connection


Moscow may be planning a referendum on Russia joining the Donetsk region, British intelligence has reported. Plans for this are well advanced. The Kremlin, in turn, accuses London of a targeted disinformation campaign.

The secret services themselves admit that there may not be a final decision to hold such a referendum in the Ukrainian region of Donetsk. On August 11, Russian media reported that separatist leader Denis Pushilin was talking about such a referendum. The exact date will be announced after the “complete liberation” of the region.

The fact that Donetsk is not yet fully under Russian control will likely be seen by the Kremlin as a setback to its “maximalist goals in Ukraine,” Britain’s Defense Ministry wrote in its daily update. Since the start of the war in late February, the British government has regularly published information about its course. Moscow then accused London of a targeted disinformation campaign.

Currently, Russian and Ukrainian troops are fighting around the towns of Bakhmut and Soledar. Ukrainian army positions are said to have been attacked and Russian advance repulsed, as the Ukrainian General Staff announced Monday morning. In addition, attacks north of the city of Slowyansk and near Wuhledar were repulsed. The same goes for Russian attacks on the villages of Pisky and Perwomaiske. There would have been air raids.

Zelensky: “Russian State Terror”
It is often not possible to independently verify the information provided by both parties, as in this case. A negotiated solution is currently not in sight. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy called on the Russian population to speak out against the war on Sunday evening. Also in Ukraine and around the world, everyone should “do everything possible to make Russia and those who support the war pay an increasing price for the Russian state terror.”
