“The first raids were carried out on apartments and houses of our residents with automatic weapons. Our people were able to answer completely consciously that they are against this holding of the referendum. Why I say this is because only less than 10% agreed to answer these questions positively,” said the mayor of occupied Melitopolis.

He also said there is no ballot yet, no options for questions or how those questions will be worded. There is also no clear date for the mock referendum.

“At first they wanted to do it at the end of August, then they talked about August 12 – the only voting day. Already now they say that there will be no single date, the referendum will be held for 7 days, but it is not known when it will take place,” Fedorov added.

Given the hostilities and the Russian occupation of the southern part of Ukraine, the editorial cannot obtain official confirmation of the statements made or independently verify them.

On August 8, Evgeny Balytskyi, who was appointed by the Russian army to “manage” the occupied part of the Zaporizhia region, said that he had signed the At the same time, the “order” does not specify the date on which the pseudo- should held a referendum.

On August 7, the President of Ukraine said: “If the Russian occupying forces decide to carry out even one, any possibility of negotiations with Russia will be closed.”

On August 8, the press secretary of the President of Russia, Dmytro Peskov, reacted to this statement by Zelensky and said that allegedly “it is not Russia that is going to hold fake referendums in the occupied territories of Zaporizhia and Kherson Region, but the local population ».

Russian troops, according to the latest figures, control about 60% of Zaporizhzhya. At the same time, the regional center – Zaporizhzhia – remains under the control of Ukraine. The Ukrainian authorities say that all occupied territories will be liberated.
