The Kherson edition informs about this “Bridge”.
“In the occupied Genichesk, more people voted in the Russian “elections” than there are physically present. This is evidenced by a document published by the Russian CEC,” the statement reads.
According to the document, a fake “local authority” was “elected” in Henichesk with the support of 23,678 votes.
However, in 2001, according to the results of the census, only 21 thousand 793 people lived in Henichesk. Since that time, the population of Henichesk has not increased, but on the contrary, due to the full-scale war, it has significantly decreased.
“By the way, the ruling United Russia party in Russia won the “elections” – it received 73.56% of the votes. It will be represented in the fake “Council of Deputies” of Henichesk by 15 people. Among them are the leader of the Heniche district of the Kherson region, Olena Terskikh and the leader of the Novooleksiivka Asan Aliyev,” the article says.
