The SBU has identified more than 4,000 people involved in pseudo-referendums

This is reported by the press service SBU.

“Among them are Russian security forces, their henchmen from the local “intelligence forces” formed by the occupiers, and heads of the so-called “territorial electoral commissions,” the SBU notes.

The documents of the aggressor country intercepted by the law enforcement officers state that it is the units of the Russian Guard and the military police of the Russian Federation who are supposed to guard pseudo-referendums. To help them, the invaders sent collaborators from the occupation administrations and private security structures under the control of the special services of the Russian Federation.

The SBU also collected identifying data on all organizers of illegal activities, established their locations and movement routes, and also documented criminal activities.

Proceedings under Part 2 of Art. 28, Part 5 of Art. 111-1 (collaborative activity) and Part 2 of Art. 110 (encroachment on the territorial integrity and inviolability of Ukraine) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.

  • On September 20, the occupiers in Luhansk Oblast, Donetsk Oblast, Kherson Oblast and Zaporizhzhia decided to hold “referendums” on joining the Russian Federation.
  • Deputy of Zaporizhzhya Regional Council Lyshenko reported that the occupiers are inventing measures to ensure the presence of people to participate in the “referendum”.
  • The occupiers are planning to involve minors in participating in a pseudo-referendum in Donetsk region in order to compensate for the lack of volunteers.
