The russian occupiers are now starting to hold pseudo-referendums on joining the occupied territories of the "DNR", "LNR", Kherson and Zaporizhzhia oblast to the russian federation.
The so-called voting will go on in the russian federation and in the occupied territories for 5 days - from September 23 to 27, including at home.
Russian media report that voting has already begun on Sakhalin.
In Zaporizhzhia and Kherson oblasts, the occupiers formulated the question as follows: "Do you support secession from Ukraine, formation of the oblast as an independent state and joining Russia?", and in the "DNR" and "LNR" - "Do you support joining the Russian Federation as a subject of the Federation?".
The occupiers plan to publish the preliminary results of the vote on September 27-28.
Earlier, the OSCE stated that the "referendums" organized by the russian federation in the occupied territories would not have legal force.
