Collaborators in the Russian-occupied city of Kherson are said to have "sobered up” and are acting lost following the conclusion of the sham referendum, the spokesperson for the Ukrainian military’s Operational Command South, Natalia Humeniuk, said on national TV on Sept. 30.
“The gauleiters are somewhat confused, they do not understand what the ‘referendum’, which they conducted on instructions from above, has given them, as it has not stopped the Defense Forces from advancing," she stated.
According to her, any serious movement of enemy troops in Kherson Oblast is impossible, as their logistics are disrupted and their ammunition depots are constantly exploding.
Russian propagandists claimed on Sept. 27 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.
Earlier, Russian dictator Vladimir Putin announced that he had signed a decree on "recognition of Kherson and Zaporizhzhya oblasts as independent territories".
