The mayor of the city, Ivan Fedorov, told how Russian propaganda shoots stories about alleged support for the occupation regime
In Melitopol, Zaporizhzhia region, the day before pseudo-referendum the Russian occupiers brought in a crew from Crimea to film propaganda stories about “satisfied local residents”.
The mayor of Melitopol, Ivan Fedorov, told about it Youtube channels of TSN.
“Today they have not given up the idea of holding a referendum, although they see the total opposition of our civilian population in the temporarily occupied territories. That is why yesterday evening they brought a crew from Crimea on multi-storey buses, with which they will shoot propaganda stories – it seems that there is support from the local population in Melitopol . But we clearly understand that this is definitely not the case,” the mayor said.
According to Fedorov, the occupiers filmed a survey of residents on the streets of the city, “but for some reason those who were in charge of supporting Russia spoke with an accent, and they are definitely not residents of our city.”
We will remind you that on September 23, Russia began in the occupied territories of Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions the so-called “referendums” on joining the Russian Federation. A “show of will” was scheduled for September 23-27. Russian President Vladimir Putin said that supports the holding of pseudo-referendumsand that the residents of the occupied territories allegedly themselves “expressed a desire to determine their own lives.”
Note that on Friday morning in Melitopol there was a loud explosion. Mayor of Melitopol Ivan Fedorov reported that people are afraid to leave their homes.
“And this fear is in the hands of the occupiers – on the first day of home-based “voting” at the pseudo-referendum, they need everyone to sit quietly at home,” he emphasized.
