Terror in the occupied Kherson region:

According to Kherson’s residents, the Russian military are trying to conduct a so-called “referendum” on creation one more fake republic – the “Kherson people’s republic” (“KhPR”) like “DPR” and “LPR” in Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine in 2014. According to the data of the Main Intelligence Department of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, the occupying forces are already printing lists, bulletins, brochures, and posters for the so-called “referendum.” Fully apparent it will be not a real referendum. Everything will take place according to the scenarios of the occupied Crimea and “LDNR” – the opening of several “polling places”, the creation of a picture for Russian and international media, and lists of people will be used who were registered during receiving humanitarian aid. It can be said at once that the so-called “referendum” and “decisions” will be absolutely fake, because the residents of Kherson have been openly resisting it throughout the Russian occupation. Dozens of peaceful rallies of civilians against the Russian occupation, the refusal of teachers to accept the Russian educational programs, some schools’ directors even dismissed from their positions just to have no cooperation with the occupying forces.

In addition, the abduction and apprehension of local activists, as well as the mining of roads, forest territories and fields, are continuing.
