Preparations for referendums on joining Russia, which were scheduled in the liberated territories of the Kherson and Zaporizhzhya regions, tentatively on September 11, have now been stopped. This is reported by the Russian Telegram channel BRIEF, which belongs to the Nezygar channel network.
“The preparation of referendums specifically for September 11 seems to have been stopped in all regions of Novorossiya, except, possibly, Lugansk. This territory as a whole is under Russian control, but more importantly, a state apparatus has been created there that can produce results. But the Kherson region, apparently, will not be able to organize the process in such a period just because of the lack of state structures. The leadership of the DPR now declares that the inhabitants of the entire republic should vote after its complete liberation. And in Zaporozhye, the situation around the nuclear power plant clearly began to interfere with the electoral breakthrough. In general, a festive expression of will along with the rest of Russia is not yet expected. If there was such a plan before, now the presidential administration, apparently, has removed it from the agenda, ”the channel notes.
Sources of Anti-Fascist in the liberated territories of Ukraine partly confirm the information that the referenda may not take place in September, while emphasizing that the final decision has not yet been made.
At the same time, some other TG channels also note that the decision to postpone the referenda has not yet been made and preparations for it are ongoing.
“Preparations for the referendum are underway in all the liberated territories. The referendum must be held without delay, before the start of the heating season. This act has a great symbolic meaning for the population of the liberated territories. Until now, many are afraid that Russia will leave, leaving all those who supported it. Therefore, many qualified specialists do not cooperate with the administrations of the regions, thereby perpetuating a huge shortage of personnel. Everyone is waiting for the Referendum,” writes, for example, the author of the Spy channel, to whom no one writes.
It is worth noting that the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, in a video message published on August 7, said that Kyiv would refuse negotiations with Moscow if referendums were held in the liberated territories of Ukraine under the control of the Russian army.
Recall that earlier, with reference to sources in the Government of the LPR, it was reported that in the near future it is not worth expecting referendums on joining Russia in the republics of Donbass, at least until the territory of the DPR is completely liberated.
