Ukrainian Defence Intelligence: Russia is actively preparing to hold an illegal referendum on the occupied territories of Ukraine

The aggressor country is trying to annex the occupied territories of Ukraine. Vadym Skibitsky, a representative of the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine, stated this on the “Kyiv” TV channel.

“The Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine clearly sees the preparatory measures carried out by the occupiers. In the temporarily occupied territories in the Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions, the Kremlin political party “United Russia” began to work actively. We see that measures are being taken to clarify the so-called voter lists. In addition, they opened polling stations for holding elections. The process of distributing Russian passports has actively begun. This is a set of measures that Russia is currently conducting in the occupied territories to prepare and hold a referendum,” said a representative of Ukraine’s military intelligence.

According to Vadym Skibitsky, to prevent the Russian Federation’s consolidation and the creation of a bridgehead for further offensive actions, our soldiers will liberate the occupied territories of eastern and southern Ukraine.
