More than 4,000 representatives of enemy groups, traitors and collaborators have been identified, who are planned to be involved in the organization of illegal plebiscites in Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions.
The Security Service has established the identities of the main organizers and participants of the training fake referendums in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine.
About this reports SBU press center.
It is noted that more than 4,000 representatives of enemy groups, traitors and collaborators, who are planned to be involved in the organization of illegal plebiscites on the territory of Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson and Zaporizhia regions, have been identified.
“Among them are Russian security forces, their accomplices from the local “Ministry of Internal Affairs” formed by the occupiers, and the heads of the so-called “territorial electoral commissions”. According to the intercepted documents of the aggressor country, it is the units of the Russian Guard and the military police of the Russian Armed Forces who are to provide “protection” for the pseudo-voting. Collaborators from occupation administrations and private security structures under the control of the special services of the Russian Federation were sent to “assist,” the report says.
In addition, the SBU collected identification data on all organizers of illegal activities, established their places of stay and movement routes, and also documented criminal activities.
Within the criminal proceedings initiated by SBU investigators 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, comprehensive measures are being taken to bring the guilty parties to justice.
“Referendums” in the territories occupied by Russia
The Russian occupiers planned September 23-27 to hold pseudo-referendums in captured parts of Kherson, Zaporizhzhya, Donetsk and Luhansk regions with the aim of joining the Russian Federation.
Putin supported the holding of pseudo-referendums in the occupied regions of Ukraine after the military defeat of the Russian Federation in the Kharkiv region. After that, the Kremlin threatened a nuclear strike in case of “encroachment” on the annexed territories.
The international community condemned the intentions of the Russian occupiers. In particular, the countries of the “Big Seven” and the European Union announced that they would introduce sanctions against the Russian Federation for organizing pseudo-referendums on the temporarily occupied Ukrainian territory.
