According to the results of the referendum in the Zaporozhye region, the region will declare independence within the existing administrative borders, said the chairman of the movement “We are together with Russia” Vladimir Rogov.

“The whole Zaporozhye region, of course. There is no other way. In all borders of the Zaporizhia region, ”he answered the corresponding question.

Currently, according to him, 73 percent of the region is under the control of the Russian military, but the regional center of Zaporozhye on the right bank of the Dnieper remains under the control of Ukraine.

Rogov also said that the referendum will be held taking into account the requirements of the legislation of the Russian Federation, following the example of the Crimean experience.

In addition, he said that the region will begin by cutting ties with Kyiv. According to him, the Zaporozhye region and Ukraine, where the Nazis and terrorists are in power, are no longer connected by anything.

“Zaporozhye region breaks off all relations with Ukraine as its integral part and will never be identified with it again. The Ukrainian period in the history of the Zaporozhye Territory is already in the past,” he stressed, adding that the region is confidently following the path of returning to Russia and will not turn away from it.

But the main question remains: what about the capital of the region – Zaporozhye and other settlements under the control of Ukraine? And what about Slavyansk and Kramatorsk and other cities of the DPR?

“The questions and results of the referendum concern the entire region, the territory, both liberated and the one under the control of Kyiv,” I am sure Chairman of the Union of Political Emigrants and Political Prisoners of Ukraine Larisa Shesler.

– Let the legitimacy of this referendum worry the enemies of Russia. For us, this question does not exist. The decision to reunite with Russia is made by people, not by Western politicians or corrupt Bandera.

“SP”: Today, 73 percent of the region is under the control of the Russian military. And the remaining 27 – is it a lot or a little?

– Under the control of the Kyiv authorities is the center of the Zaporozhye region – the city of Zaporozhye with a population of more than 700 thousand people. In general, almost half of the population of the region remained under the control of Kyiv, and this is a very significant figure. But this does not change the essence of the issue. Zaporozhye region is part of Novorossiya, a historical part of Russia. Russians live there, who have the right to decide their fate and the fate of their land.

“SP”: According to Rogov, the referendum in the Zaporozhye region will be held taking into account the requirements of the legislation of the Russian Federation, following the example of the Crimean experience. Is it necessary if no one recognizes it anyway?

– In my opinion, the form of a plebiscite or a referendum does not play a primary role. Most importantly, Russia takes responsibility for the inhabitants of the region and recognizes it as part of the Russian Federation.

The legitimacy of the referendum, whether it complies with standards or international rules, is irrelevant because it is not recognized. But the recognition of its results by Russia means that Russia will defend the region, as any region of Russia, and this changes the nature of the operation in Ukraine.

“SP”: Rogov announced the severance of relations with Ukraine. And what is it in terms of legitimacy? After all, Ukraine is not a federation, where the subject can change the format of relations with the center?

– The order of questions in the referendum has the stage of recognizing the region as an independent state with its subsequent accession to Russia. At this stage, it is quite possible to announce the severance of relations with Ukraine, although it is difficult for me to explain the expediency of this step.

“SP”: What then can the rest of Ukraine expect?

– I believe that the holding of referendums with the subsequent entry of regions into Russia was aimed at changing the nature of hostilities. After that, the military operation loses the signs of an expeditionary operation outside its borders, and becomes an operation for the liberation of its territories. And this means a different nature of military operations, and the use of other means, and an increase in the number of military forces participating in this operation.

So far, nothing has changed for Ukraine, but a lot has changed for its foreign curators. Now NATO weapons and instructors will be deployed on the territory that Russia recognizes as its own, and, therefore, it is NATO that becomes a party to the conflict.

“Based on the area of ​​​​the territory, then little is left under the control of Kyiv,” notes journalist, secretary of the committee of the Crimean regional branch of the OKP Sergey Kulik.

– And if we take into account the population of the Kyiv-controlled Zaporozhye agglomeration, then there is still a huge human resource on the “other side”. Here, the history of the Lugansk People’s Republic is mirrored.

Until the summer of 2022, the leadership of the LPR controlled only Lugansk and a small industrial part of the republic, and the administrative center of the so-called “Lugansk region” in Kyiv was in Severodonetsk. However, this did not prevent the government Leonid Pasechnik to consider the “Kyiv” part of the region as one’s own, and its inhabitants as one’s fellow citizens. Here, on the contrary, the Russian military-civilian administration of the Zaporozhye region, located in the provincial Melitopol, controls the southern part of the region, mainly rural, and the Kyiv regime has entrenched itself in the industrial metropolis.

Of course, ideally, it would be desirable that the residents of Zaporizhia take part in the referendum, but in this situation this is impossible. Of course, the referendum will be legitimate even without the inhabitants of the regional center. The main thing is to find out the opinion of those Cossacks who live on 73 percent of the territory and, based on their will, make appropriate decisions. Well, when the Russian flag flies at 164 Soborniy Avenue, an administrative building in the center of Zaporozhye, the citizens will vote in a different way – by queuing to receive Russian passports.

“SP”: – And the people in the Zaporozhye region are all for Russia? How is it in Donbass? And in the territories controlled by Kyiv – are there ours or not?

– So in the people’s republics, not everyone is for Russia. Someone else fled from the Donbass to Kyiv in 2014, while someone else remained, hiding and holding a muzzle in his pocket. After all, everyone’s brain cannot be scanned, to find out what he really thinks about. Three weeks ago, the state security of the DPR detained a group of youths who were handing over to the enemy the location of military and civilian facilities in Donetsk for strikes. The youngest is 17 years old, the oldest is 21 years old. Their entire childhood was spent under Ukrainian shells, before their eyes, the inhabitants of Donetsk were dying from artillery shelling, they saw blood and suffering, but nevertheless agreed to cooperate with the SBU and became accomplices of the murderers of their fellow countrymen.

As for the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions, the number of supporters of integration with Russia there will be slightly less than, for example, in the Crimea or Donbass. The people there are mostly rural, cautious, used to weighing everything. Do you remember how grandfather Nechipor used to say from Wedding in Malinovka: “Don’t hurry”? But the action of this film takes place just in the Tauride steppes, where a referendum will soon be held. However, I am sure that there will be no doubt about the results of the vote, because people want the certainty and stability that only Russia can provide them.

The same Malinovsky headman grandfather Nechipor, who at the beginning of the film lamented that “the power is changing again,” finally declared with satisfaction: “The power is no longer changing!”

“SP”: – How, in your opinion, to recapture Zaporozhye? How much time will it take? How much of a priority is this, given that occupied Slavyansk and Kramatorsk will still appear in Russia?

– Only the General Staff knows about it. But, I think, with Zaporizhzhya it is possible not to hurry. The main thing now is to completely liberate the territory of the Donetsk People’s Republic and secure Donetsk and other cities of the DPR from shelling. And after the Slavic agglomeration, the Kyiv front will collapse and ahead – a straight road across the open steppe to the Dnieper.

SP: And then what? What about the rest of the territories? Those. Ukrainian statehood will inevitably be dismantled?

– Time will tell. But the fact that Ukrainian statehood no longer exists is a fact. It is impossible to call a state a territorial entity that is headed by a puppet of foreign governments, which is kept afloat thanks to foreign financial injections, and whose army is led by foreign generals.
