The SBU intercepted Russian documents regulating the holding of a fake “referendum” of the Russian Federation in the Kherson region

This was reported by the press service of the SBU.

“Through this pseudo-voting, the invaders hope to legitimize the entry of the southern part of Ukraine into the Russian Federation. They have already developed a concept for preparing for a fake referendum and have identified the main areas of work with reference to dates. At the same time, the final date of the voting itself has not been set, ”the message says.

Also paid by the Russian Federation, according to the SBU, the “activists” plan to simultaneously organize more than 140 pro-Russian pickets, more than 30 of which are to be held in the regional center.

All this should have been covered by propagandists.

In addition, representatives of the occupation administration received tasks from their Moscow curators to create 20 “election commissions.” The composition of the “electoral committees” had to be approved by August 1.

According to the security service, in order to strengthen electoral support, the Russians are offering to distribute food packages and starter packages of Russian operators.

Currently, the SBU has identified and located all the traitors and their “coordinators” from the Russian Federation involved in organizing the pseudo-referendum.
