It has been established that in Mariupol the “headquarters for the preparation for the referendum” were deployed by the invaders in one of the local shopping centers. The actions of the headquarters are fully coordinated by representatives of the United Russia party.

According to intelligence information, in order to avoid the destruction of the artillery of the Defense Forces of Ukraine, all centers for preparing for a pseudo-referendum in the occupied territories are located in premises with a “large concentration of the civilian population.”

For the ideological and propaganda indoctrination of the population, the invaders organize a number of events of “military-patriotic education.” The main target audience is local youth, who, according to intelligence, for the most part show no interest in Russian ideology.

So, in the town of Golaya Pristan, Skadovsky district, Kherson region, a “youth forum” was held under the slogan “we are together with Russia”. To participate in it, the invaders attracted middle and high school students.

The all-Russian public organization of veterans “combat brotherhood” plans to open its branch in Mariupol. Another public organization “veterans of the airborne assault units of the Republic of Bashkortostan” turned to the local gauleiter Konstantin Ivashchenko with a request to allocate premises for the military-patriotic club “young paratrooper-warrior” and a children’s training base.

As reported, the other day the militants of the so-called “DPR” and “LPR” called on their leaders to hold pseudo-referendums on “joining the Russian Federation.” Subsequently, the so-called public council, created with the participation of Russia in the temporarily occupied territory of the Kherson region to prepare a pseudo-referendum on joining Russia, also made a corresponding appeal to the predatory authorities.

The holding of pseudo-referenda is scheduled for September 23-27. Western leaders have already said that any Russian bogus referenda in Ukraine will be illegitimate. At the same time, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on September 21 that Russia would recognize the results of the “referenda”.
