The so-called referendums started today in the territories of Ukraine seized by Russia. The main issue is joining the Russian Federation. What the Kremlin calls a vote and an expression of will is taking place in the occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions, seized parts of Kherson and Zaporozhye regions. The leaders of the illegal military formation “DNR” controlled by the Russian Federation announced that the so-called vote will take place in the entire territory controlled by the occupation forces.
At the moment, there is no reliable information about international observers or independent journalists who could somehow follow the progress of this action. In addition, the Moscow-backed administration’s Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson and Zaporozhye regions are holding a vote in violation of international law and the UN Charter amid Europe’s biggest war in decades.
How do Ukrainians react to this vote and do they oppose it?
