President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has called for an emergency meeting of the National Security and Defense Council for Sept. 30, presidential press secretary Serhiy Nikiforov announced on Facebook on Sept. 29.

“The agenda and other details will be announced later,” he added.

On Sept. 30, Russian state media revealed that Russian dictator Vladimir Putin will announce the annexation of occupied Ukrainian territory – including parts that remain under Ukrainian government control. Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov added that the announcement will be accompanied by a "voluminous" speech.

According to NV's source in Ukrainian anti-corruption authorities, by the end of the week, the National Security and Defense Council plans to impose sanctions on the assets of a number of Russian oligarchs and persons associated with them.

From Sept. 23 to 27, the Russian invaders staged so-called "referendums" in the temporarily occupied parts of the Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia oblasts. None of these regions are fully controlled by Russia. Ukraine and the vast majority of Western countries have declared that the results of these sham referendums will not be recognized.

On Sept. 27, the Russian invaders announced the "results" of these pre-determined votes in the occupied territories of Kherson, Zaporizhzhia, Luhansk and Donetsk oblasts.

Russian propagandists claimed that over or nearly 90% of the population in Ukraine’s occupied territories had “voted” for annexation to Russia. Numbers of 98.42% were invented for Luhansk Oblast, 93.11% for Zaporizhzhia Oblast, 87.05% for Kherson Oblast, and 99.23% for Donetsk Oblast.

All of these reported “results” are simply made up by the Kremlin, and do not correspond with the actual attitudes of the population in the occupied territory.
