Last August, Moscow’s ‘puppet administration’ issued a decree paving the way for referendums in the Donbass, Zaporizhzhya and Kherson regions. Vladimir Putin’s army took control of those four areas at the beginning of the war in February. According to analysts, President Vladimir Putin is set to formally annex a large part of Ukraine, including the Donbass region, into Russia. It is almost equal in size to Portugal. Meanwhile, on the referendum, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that if there is a referendum in the occupied territories, all avenues of negotiation will be closed. Ukraine and its allies will not accept this in any way. But Russian President Vladimir Putin dismissed the threat even though he fell into a bit of trouble in the war.

According to the source of ‘The New York Times’, the distribution of ballots among the voters in the occupied territories has started from Friday. There is only one question, ‘Do you want to break away from Ukraine and create an independent state that will join the Russian Federation?’ According to analysts, the Donbass region has a predominantly Russian-speaking population. As a result, there was a struggle to join Russia for several years. This time, Putin used that opportunity. Incidentally, in 2014, Putin declared the region ‘autonomous’ after seizing the Black Sea peninsula of Crimea from Ukraine.

Meanwhile, Ukraine has claimed that the entire voting process is rigged. According to Kiev officials, who is voting in cities where people have fled for fear of Russian shelling? Those who have left the illusion of life and are forced to remain there, are suffering endlessly. In such circumstances, this referendum is a process of arrangement. In addition, the G-7 alliance and other countries have made it clear that annexing part of Ukraine would be a violation of UN principles.
