Russian invaders in the temporarily occupied territories are carrying out activities aimed at preparing pseudo-referendums. Thus, the aggressor country is implementing its special plans.
This is evidenced by the data of the American Institute for the Study of War. In particular, infidels are preparing for referendums in the Kherson region and Melitopol.
Fake opinion polls in the Kherson region
The Institute for the Study of War, citing the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, notes that Russian infidels in the Kherson region are conducting fake opinion polls. They call people on the phone and ask them manipulative questions in order to show that Ukrainians supposedly have a positive attitude towards Russia.
Thus, the infidels create the prerequisites for a pseudo-referendum and justify the annexation of the territory of the Kherson region.
Preparations for the referendum in Melitopol
Also, ISW reacted to the statement of the traitor and collaborator Galina Danilchenko, who considers herself the mayor of Melitopol, about preparations for holding a “referendum” in the city.
Analysts are surprised by the fact that a pseudo-referendum is being prepared only in Melitopol, and not on throughout the temporarily occupied territory of the Zaporozhye region. Therefore, the Institute for the Study of War says that the occupiers are implementing their special plans.
The fact that a single city, unlike the entire occupied region, is preparing for a referendum may indicate that special plans for annexation and integration are being carried out in the occupied territory without a unifying occupation body to oversee the annexation of the entire region, the ISW said.< /p>
Meanwhile, the militants have personnel changes
The Institute for the Study of War noted that the militants in the Donetsk region do not provide basic social services and guarantees of quality of life to the residents of Mariupol. the townspeople do not receive water, humanitarian aid and medicines, and corruption among the militants complicates the situation.
In addition, analysts drew attention to the fact that the leader of the militants in the Donetsk region, Denis Pushilin, fired the “head of government” of the pseudo-republic. This, according to experts, may indicate internal problems in attempts to occupy Mariupol and wage war in general. And so far, the Institute for the Study of War cannot assess the consequences of the release of a militant in a quasi-education.
