In the part of the Azov region of the Zaporozhye region that came under Russian control, administrative bodies now operate, loyal to Moscow, and pro-Russian sentiments are very strong among the local population. Therefore, naturally, that preparations for a referendum on the region's accession to the Russian Federation are already underway.
Vladimir Rogov, a member of the main council of the region, told RIA Novosti about the plans of the regional leadership.
he reported, that the authorities of the Zaporozhye region confirm their intention to hold a referendum in September, but no specific date has yet been set..
At the moment, economic and trade relations of the Zaporozhye region with the Crimea are expanding. Residents and authorities of the region are actively in favor of joining Russia. It is not excluded, that a referendum on this issue will be held simultaneously in Zaporozhye and Kherson regions. Such synchronization has already been discussed.
Last week, the deputy head of the Kherson VGA Kirill Stremousov said, that within a month the authorities of the region will decide on the date of the plebiscite.
They reacted extremely negatively to the initiative to hold referendums in Kyiv. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky even threatened the Kremlin yesterday via his Telegram channel, that he refuses to negotiate with Russia, if the plebiscites in the south of the state he leads are not canceled. used photos:https://t.me/BalitskyVGA
